Port Meeting

This evening I went to the Harbour Board public meeting. The board members set out their view that the only way the town could be regenerated and the Western Docks developed would be through the sell off.  They made a strong case and ran the meeting well. Everyone got to have a say.

Yet the truth is this is all being done right now because the Government is desperate for the £400-500m the sale would bring in. When you are borrowing crazy sums like £200Bn, every little bit helps. The sale of our harbour would pay for one day's worth of national borrowing.
