Casino decision - It's Manchester!
Well, no-one predicted that! Manchester wins. Thanks for nothing, Mr Prescott. View my full press release here.
It does seem rather odd to me that Chris Roberts, the Leader of Greenwich Council, has made no mention of sorrow or disappointment in his press release. Not to worry that we may have lost £350m of investment in the Borough (in his ward!), let's just pat the winners on the back, eh? We've all got some fairly crucial questions to ask the developers AEG at the Council Meeting tomorrow.
