ON SEEING the articles related to the Tropicana and our involvement in attempting to restore the site to the people of North Somerset, I feel it is time to make our position clear.We as a political organisation do not wish to make political capital out of our attempt to purchase the site from North Somerset Council. This is why in the offer submitted to the council we have stated that on formation of the trust and selection of the board of trustees we will remove ourselves completely from this project. We welcome everyone to participate in this project including councillors as long as they come as private citizens and leave their politics behind.At the next full council meeting our development secretary will address the council and announce to them what the vision for the Tropicana is and how it will function. We will also bring to the council's attention the reasons why the public have lost trust in the decision-making process, and confidence in the system the councillors represent.There is an element within the executive, senior officers and among some councillors that should have a legal question to ask themselves: Are they abusing their positions of power and privilege?D STANLEYChairman, North Somerset Community Action Association
