The other quote is "never let the truth get in the way of a good story" and that is the essence of a propaganda campaign as the pro supporters have a history of salting their "facts" with a dose of truth. Take the following post:
Riveroak's CEO is Stephen DeNardo is an independent director of Brookfield Property Partners based in the West Indies who with a Quatari consortium forced a buyout of Canary Wharf. He isnt the Chief Financial Officer but is the Chair of the Audit Committee and as Brookfield is listed on the New York Stock Exchange they have to abide by their rules
"As CFO George (Yerrall) has investors committed to 5 times any reasonable value of Manston"
This is in an apparent move to say how rich RO actually are however the statement is let down by several things. Firstly no one knows what Manston is worth but more to the point why didn't RO offer a reasonable sum in 2014 for the airport seeing it had been up for sale for 22 months previously to being bought by Ann Gloag.
"TDC officers are refusing to prepare papers for the Overview and Scrutint Committee meeting on the 16th November"
Sorry Bryan, but did you understand the reason for the O&S Committee? Papers do not need to be prepared per se as their raison d'etre to ensure the Cabinet's decisions are based on proper controls. "It does not have any decision-making powers, but monitors the performance of the Leader and Cabinet and scrutinises services and policies throughout the district." Therefore by definition it looks at the evidence that has been prepared for the Cabinet and if they believe decisions are incorrect then they have to refer it back to the Cabinet.
"Due to the lack of a CPO the hangar is currently owned by Ann Gloag and her cronies"
Talk about incorrect and emotive. Firstly there isn't a CPO because no suitable partner has been found to start one, secondly Land registry says the owners of that company are cartner & Musgrave not Ann Gloag. (She does have a pecuniary interest but not ownership)
"Sir Roger Gale is currently calling for a coalition at TDC to vote the CPO through"
He certainly is however not for the reasons he would have you believe this is politics after all. In case anyone wondered TDC cannot vote a CPO through they have firstly to find a legitimate partner then they have to set the ball rolling and its the Secretary of State that makes the final decision based of some fairly fundamental rules.
