Sains-buries tarmacs the Memorial Ground.

December 13, 2011

The Jammy Oliver promoted chain of family grocers has unveiled its latest monster shed for the historic home of Bristol Rugby. Not content with concreting over Ashton Gate its megalomaniac owners have hit the jackpot with the double whammy of wiping out both of Bristols current league football grounds. Is their no end to the Merchants of Greed and there quest for the biggest junk food shed empire?
As they rub their hands with glee and order themselves an early xmas bonus bonanza, the superstore owners must be glowing with pride at the monster erection they’ve unveiled for Horfield. Poor fellas must be lacking in the trouser department.
Damn-I’m sick of these hideous sheds of concrete and metal preying on the vulnerable consumer, pretending that they are providing what society demands.
They are the extremist vultures of capitalism.

    North Bristol and South Bristol residents desperate for primary school places.
    Bristol Council get massive funds to build new schools.
    But there’s no space to build new schools cos the stupid councillors and greedy fatcats have decided they can make more profits from massive hypermarkets and bonus obese banks and offices.
    The two ideal spaces, two football gounds that may come on the market are given over to the vile grocery greedmerchants without so much as a whimper from our elected reps and MP’s, what a vomit inducing bunch of xmas spooks.
    Compulsory purchase the land at once, hang on, BCC already own 1/5 of Ashton Gate what the .fffffff……..?

    BCC might well own part of the land at AG. As you well know, because it’s been explained to you many times, they have leased that land to BCFC under a legal agreement for a period exceeding 80 years. They cannot do a damn thing with that land, while the current legal agreement stands. In other words, they’re stuffed.
    The deal for a supermarket on the stadium site, with the land currently leased as a carpark, being used as vehicle access and filling station, will, over that same lease period, provide an increase in income for the council above that of the existing lease. This is obviously good business for the council.
    The demand for primary school places has been because of what? One could only presume it’s down to an increasing number of children of that age, due to an increasing population. An increasing population regardless of social standing, requires more housing. You have consistently tried to block certain housing schemes in and around Ashton, as part of your opposition to the stadium and supermarket. As far as I understand it, there is housing planned for the memorial ground development, housing which is currently not there. Like housing in the city, schools will have to go upwards to increase capacity.

    Mr Lane rubbish as usual-have you got the new council contract for bin collection?
    Footy club can’t build stupid hypermarket on someone else’s land that they don’t own.
    City council should compulsory purchase the rest of the land to build new schools and housing -er yes that’s housing that I’ve said is needed from day one, not the tax dodgers monster monument to supermarket greed.
    Stick the stadium by Temple Meads if you want to move it, there’s tons of space forget the ‘not enough room’ whinging.
    Looking forward to the 2012 town green at Ashton Vale?
