The 3 councilors at the time were:Out of interest are the councillors who backed them to take over the land still in power or were they removed at the earliest possible opportunity.
The 3 councilors at the time were:
Henry Cooper (not that one)
Henry Cooper did the decent thing and resigned from the Labour Party as a result of the decision to allow the land to be built on. He stood as an independent councillor at the next election but as ever.....Labour voters only vote for Labour so he was gone.....
Paul Murphy became Mayor after the permission was granted and then retired having sold his constituents down the Dean Brook...
Rita Tavenor was a sly one..... kept telling protesters that she understood / supported our view point etc etc and a week before the decision was to be taken, I sussed out that her husband was the Principal of North Manchester College - the very college that were running educational courses for the Rag Socks academy kids run by the then Rag Socks manager Karl Marginson..... So in a nutshell, her husband's college employed the Rag Socks manager to run the clubs academy and needed the proposal to build the stadium in order for the academy to continue via being funded through North Manchester College.
Once exposed via social media she went very quiet.
At the day of the hearing, all 3 councilors spoke in the town hall prior to the decision.... Cooper was against it, Murphy was for it and Tavenor had to admit that there was a clash of interests via her personal life and professional life and kept her mouth shut as a result. Had I not discovered that link between her husband and the Rag Socks she would never have held her hand up to there being a clash of interest.
She too retired at the 2013 election
It was pure Orwell's Animal Farmthe whole lot of them took money ? the so called fan built club with its board members used charities and donations for their own lifestyle and took the money that was not theirs ? there should have been a major police investigation after the audit found out what was going on but i think nobody was prosecuted and it was covered up
It was pure Orwell's Animal Farm
All members are equal, but some are more equal than others....
Never really got those that supported the breakaway club whilst at the same time still "supported" the club they apparently broke away from. Cant imagine AFC Wimbledon fans supporting MK Dons.
