I’m guessing that that not everyone who reads this is on twitter, so here’s a bit of news you may not have seen. Conservative District Councillor Jonathan Gullis, who has said he is standing down from the Council in November, has changed his mind and now supports the ASL development on the Campden Road. I’ve copied this from his twitter feed:
‘I have just signed the petition for a supermarket and petrol station in
‘The detailed reason why I have changed my position on the ASL application will be avaliable to read by Monday.’
It will be interesting to see if this is now the official Conservative Party position, as this will mean the only (political) opposition to the supermarket in Shipston will be coming from the Liberal Democrats, and will give pro supermarketers (if that’s a word) a choice between the Conservatives and Labour. At the very least it’s a U-turn comparable with Nick Clegg’s decision to support tuition fees after being safely elected…..
