Well over a decade of nothing

HANDS UP. How many of us foresaw the Henry Boot deal falling through and 'other less ambitious proposals' being considered, eventually?

Perhaps I am psychic. I predicted the Mace deal going off the rails and now I have predicted the Henry Boot plans failing. Maybe I should get a job on television, move over Derren Brown.

In all seriousness though, what was Cllr Elfan Ap Rees and his motley crew over in the council thinking? Well over a decade of nothing, deadlines being put back again and again and everything comes crashing down at the end. This whole debacle is the economic equivalent of throwing balls at a coconut that is nailed to a pole. Perhaps sense will prevail in the near future and someone will fill the place with water and stick a roof on the top.

I am still baffled by the blinkered nature of our mighty leaders with regards to this matter, even my pet rabbit could have seen this result coming. Might I suggest the council hires a new cleaner, its crystal ball appears to be dusty.
