A bizarre new turn in the neverending saga of the non-appearance of a RECYCLING CENTRE for south Bristol on Hartcliffe Way.
The centre, readers may recall, was signed off to be built by the Lib Dems in 2012 and then kicked into touch a few months later when recently elected Mayor No-More Ferguson decided to pursue his environmental goals through the medium of CIRCUS PERFORMANCE and FREE PIES for the wealthy.
In May 2016, at his inauguration speech, The Reverend appeared to resurrect the plan, PROMISING south Bristol a recycling centre on Hartcliffe Way as outlined in his ‘Our Bristol Plan’ manifesto. Since when, NOTHING WHATSOEVER has happened to deliver the centre.
Now, in 2018, we find that the south Bristol Labour Party has set up a PETITION. “We the undersigned call on Bristol City Council to take steps to deliver the long-promised recycling centre on Hartcliffe Way.”
Er, that’s right. The Bristol Labour Party is petitioning itself to get their own manifesto promise delivered by 2019! What a shambles.
I would like to say thank you for being the voice of small business owners like myself and my husband. We’ve suffered tremendously over the past year and found ourselves in ridiculous amounts of debt. Our shop is on west street in old market and since the introduction of these evil pay and park machines business has slowed down to almost a halt. And it isn’t just us, everyone on the street has suffered.
To top it off, we got a visitor from the council last month inquiring about where we send our waste. So I informed the gentlemen that we have a license with our supplier to take all our recycling to them. He asked that we provide evidence of that which we did. But he wanted to know where our supplier sent their waste. I said I didn’t know and that was something they should go and talk to them about.
Anyway, we got a letter saying if we don’t provide a sufficient paper trail we’ll be fined £300 and we’ll have 7 days to do it. It was Christmas. These assholes are trying to run us out of business. That’s what they want.
I wonder why they complain that people don’t work hard enough and depend on the welfare system?
Criminal polluter: Oliver “Bankrupt” Latter, ho!, ho!
Oh dearie me, seems times are very hard indeed for Oliver Latter’s criminal polluting waste firm, BOOMECO. For it seems the Avonmouth recycling firm that packages up waste and exports it to Sweden to be incinerated for a tasty fee from Bristol City Council is up for sale!
Meanwhile reports emerge that the firm procured by Mayor Rubbish just six months ago – after the snooty liar denied he intended to do any such thing – is on the verge of BANKRUPTCY. “There’s very little activity around their yard these days,” we’re assured.
Whether Latter will be able to offload his useless polluting firm that was fined £19k recently for infesting Avonmouth with flies and is also subject to a legal class action from 200 local residents over this issue is a moot point.
Our spies tell us that corporate giants BALFOUR BEATTY have already declined an offer to buy the firm and its expensive legal action. We also understand other Avonmouth firms, many with dubious clean air credentials themselves, are watching this class action unfold with increasing concern.
