TVG JR go ahead or Diggers Donkey Derby?

March 2, 2012

Up to his lordship the judge today to decide whether the JR continues.
Let’s hope he’s had a good fry-up and is ready with the OK let natural justice follow on ruling.
It’s only right that the decisions on TVG are put to scrutiny.
Meanwhile the ‘5000 jobs’ boast by the new stadium team, will become a standing joke if the judge swings the way of the business tycoon.
JCB at the ready, Stevie Lansdown and crew are poised to dig a big hole for the clubs future.

    I don’t understand. Bristol City Council told us this was all over the Monday before last.

    Haven’t they sent in the diggers yet?

    You not suggesting that Simon Cook doesn’t know what he’s talking about are you?

    Looking at the outcome today , anybody would think that the Judge didn’t bother to read the comments section of the Evening Post.

    Why oh why, does the council not use the “expertise” of the “legal eagles” who comment on there? They have “won” this case and declared it over eight or nine times now, the council only once but they are “learning”.

    Let’s review;

    Independent and legally qualified inspector – finds in favour of applicants and recommends awarding of Town Green
    1st Independent and legally qualified judge – finds in favour of applicants and grants anonymity to applicant
    2nd Independent and legally qualified judge – finds in favour of applicants and grants permission to pursue JR
    3rd Independent and legally qualified judge – finds in favour of applicants, allowing JR to continue with new applicants

    And now we have yet another independent and legally qualified judge who is “minded” to approve the continuance and will make his full announcement on Tuesday.

    If, as the media seems to be expecting, Tuesday’s announcement confirms that the JR will go ahead in May it will be in front of, guess what, another independent and legally qualified judge who may well decide that the “additional evidence” that the council has relied on to support it’s decision not to make all the land a Town Green, should be placed in front of yet another independent and legally qualified inspector just like the first set of evidence.

    Everytime somebody independent, legally trained and not part of the council is asked to make a decision, it seems to be in favour of the applicants. It is only when politicians and/or officers within Bristol City council (who are, of course, major supporters of the stadium) are making the decisions that it seems to go in favour of the football club. Funny that.

    What’s not funny is that the deputy leader of the council can make such an ill informed statement, with such conviction, at such speed, and be so wrong. Anybody with half a brain would have said “possibly” or “probably” just to save themselves from looking such an idiot if things changed. Both sides must be equally dismayed! So why did he do it? Is he the fool he looks. Was it to please the pro stadium lobby, the business community, or was it to stem the “council don’t support sport” rhetoric from the pro mayor lobby? It really does bring his position into disrepute. I’d sack him.

    Trouble is none of you boys are taking account of the second letter are you? The one that explains everything in the first letter and everything else as well.

    The judge will read this over the weekend and the diggers will be in on Wednesday.

    Father Abraham the JR would be good-decisions of council officers can then be scrutinised independently.
    The in-house scrutiny teams are toothless as was demonstrated when the handover of council assets to make the monster hypermarket viable was rubber stamped by an in-house team. It’s not enough to say that council officers are pro-stadium so that should be the end of it. The JR will ensure fair play and uncover potential dodgy dealing.
    The decision of the current judge to proceed or let the council follow its nose is in the balance it would seem.

    Councillor Cook really did leave himself wide open didn’t he. Even I wasn’t fully committed when my brother in law asked about the news. There are alsways twists and turns in a saga, aren’t there and he should have known better.

    I’m beginning to believe that the legal profession need this to go to a full JR, for the benefit of future cases.

    Let’s review Father Abrahams views:

    FA, “Independent and legally qualified inspector – finds in favour of applicants and recommends awarding of Town Green” —- So say’s the inspector with a history of doing so. She then states that it’s only a recommendation and the decision is the councils to make. New evidence proves site does not meet criteria for TVG, so council make the compromise decision to appease the TVG applicants, who still aren’t happy with 22 acres.

    FA, “1st Independent and legally qualified judge – finds in favour of applicants and grants anonymity to applicant” — Fair enough, so what. It hardly effects the evidence, it’s just mentioned by you to prove a point, which it doesn’t.

    FA, “2nd Independent and legally qualified judge – finds in favour of applicants and grants permission to pursue JR” — Fair enough, still no evidence of any unfairness or wrongdoing.

    FA ,”3rd Independent and legally qualified judge – finds in favour of applicants, allowing JR to continue with new applicants” — until it’s pointed out that there was only one side of the two parties represented which was unfair, to quote the opposition.

    So what we have is four dodgy decisions, that you’ve decided to highlight, as some sort of proof that the original opinion of a green minded inspector should stand.
    The law is there to be challenged and in these cases, seems to be about opinions, which as we know can be influenced.

    Fake Rich is back. Didn’t need to get half way through to see it.

    Are you the legal guardian on Richard Lane ?

  10. March 5, 2012 9:18 pm

    sorry

    “legal guardian of Richard Lane”

    Did anyone see Points West tonight? Police confirmed that original applicant was victim of a series of crimes against his property.

    Better cancel those diggers for a day or two …

    Please explain your theory regarding this. Or is it yet another attack, because I’m getting very bored of those.

    Has anyone heard that BobS has been telling people that residents used to pay the farmer for using his land? Could BobS be a plant by the landowners?

    Did the police say that they know, or even have an idea who committed these crimes?
    You can’t be guilty on an allegation, that is unless you support the stadium development.

    Have you ever been convicted of a violent offence?

    I just had a thought. Have a look at the times of my posts, the content, the spelling and the grammar (which aint great). Then try and tell me that I’ve a ghost writer, employed by the club, that puts posts on this site at various times and days when he should be working for the club, whilst all the time using my email address to list them.
    I’ll take your claims as some sort of back handed compliment, as every time I write something a little different, you claim it’s not me writing it.
    I think it’s you that requires a legal guardian, sonny.

    The legal guardian of Bobs would like to clarify that the evidence of the farmer charging for people to ice skate on the land dates back to the 1960s – well outside the 20 year period.

    Bobs would like to pass on how humerous he finds it that those claiming that ice skating on the land is a lie so readily change their track to believing it is true but charged for.

    Bobs wonders if anyone of the pro-stadium lot has even sniffed the inspector’s report, never mind read it. Bobs thinks that all the information in the mind of these people comes from either Otib or the BEP. Otherwise, they would not keep coming up with lies about what the TVG group did and did not claim to do on the land.

    Having read the Evening Post message boards I’m now in a position to explain what exactly has gone on in relation to this so-called intimidation.

    It’s actually completely obvious that Crispin and Butcher toured Ashton Gate last autumn after a home game in an unmarked white van and kidnapped two unsuspecting City fans and rendered them unconscious.

    They then performed a small surgical procedure on the pair of them to implant sophisticated microchips into their brains. They were then in a position to control them by infrared remote control.

    It was then a simple task to send the pair to Ashton Vale to perform the acts of vandalism attributed to stadium supporters.

    Surely the judge will be able to see this for what it is?

    Send in the diggers!
