RomeoTHE BRISTOLIAN’S mission to find out why Bristol City Council’s spending on ‘Culture and related services’ has INCREASED by £10m in the year 2014 -15 over the previous year is being stymied by the council.

A freedom of information request asking for further detail on this spending and sent in January is yet to receive a response. The request is now three months old and the council is openly BREAKING THE LAW by not responding.

What are they trying to hide?

    This sounds like it could be a case for the Information Commissioner.
    From the Information Commissioners Office website –
    There are no financial or custodial penalties for failure to provide information on request or for failure to publish information. But you could be found in contempt of court for failing to comply with a decision notice, enforcement notice, or information notice. This could lead to a fine or, in theory, jail for a senior officer of the authority.

    Good for Marvin. I am with him, so, I am sure is general public. Young women are often sought after by pimp. I have observed in a Bath cafeteria two pimps weighing up young girls as they entered the establishment. Making comments as to the each one’s desirability in pulling the customers. It is better they work in in super markets then earn lot of money for their short youth and be unemployable for the rest of their lives or progress to street walking. The people who visit these joints are not art admirers but like to exercise their money power to seduce these girls for their sexual pleasure. There are plenty of art galleries in England and if they are so interested in art they can visit them. Indeed there are so many of them that if they spent all their life time they will never see all of them. Just to make clear I am not Christian.
