Lend your support
AS SOME of you may know, because of the petition which so many of you signed in respect of saving the airport, the council has had to discuss this issue at 2pm on Monday, September 24, at the council chamber. There is a public gallery for those who wish to attend.
I would like to say to the many thousands of you who signed the petition that it would be most helpful if as many of you as possible who can spare the time could go along and give Viable the support they need.
We need to send as strong a message as possible to Tudor Evans and his council that we will not accept no for an answer, and that we want something done about the appalling lease arrangement which he and his council signed in 2000. By that I mean bringing the land back into public ownership.
The council is quite happy to give millions to the Theatre Royal, quite happy to give many more millions to the Life Centre, and quite happy to think about giving further millions for the redevelopment of the Pavilions and surrounding area – so why is it that when it comes to the airport, stiff provisos and conditions are put in place, probably to deter prospective bidders, while at the same time the above have no such conditions put in place which could be a possible drain on the public purse for years to come? Double standards, Tudor? You bet.

We, the public, are slowly but surely winning this argument; not so long ago councillors would not even discuss it, but through the support of The Herald things are beginning to turn and take shape.
So it's vitally important that we as the people of this city continue to put pressure upon the council to give every assistance to Viable in reaching their aims, and with your support we can do that.
So go along to the Council House on Monday and give your support. If you can't get into the public gallery, wait outside and make as much noise as possible so they can hear you inside.
