Bristol has always been open for business.
Bristol has never been closed for business.
Bristol thrives on its current business.
Lansdown has grown fat on Bristol business.
Other fat cats have grown fat on Bristol business that is not shut.

So to all the dipsticks who like to say that if they don’t get their monster developments then it means Bristol is closed for business……STFU!!!!!!!

Everywhere I look I see business going about what it does best in Bristol. Hard working folks earning a living. Free enterprise and innovation. Markets and manufacturers.

This is the city that has rode the recession and is one of the most desirable places to live in this country, if not Europe.

So whingers and football stadium suits..mentioning no names Higgs, Calway, and West..just get on with building your new stadium. It’s exactly because Bristol citizens won’t be content with dodgy deals and unsustainable monster supermarkets that demonstrates Bristol is open for business. Because it means that small traders can survive and flourish. Let the monster monopolies take over like this trio of tripe peddlers want and you can be sure that Bristol will indeed be closed for business.

    Love the quote from Nick Bowles. The Uk owes Bristol for driving economic economic growth. Hardly fits in with the Post’s Lymeswold on Avon narrative.

    Still, why shouldn’t a newspaper lie to us when it suits their agenda. It is their purpose. They aren’t owned by corporates and hedge funds for nothing.
