news review with Bristol mayor George Ferguson. How is George getting on as Bristol Mayor so far – community projects, still chatting with the Merchant Venturers, they are doing very well out of the financial crisis, Lockleaze community project opened today with Conservative MP Charlotte Leslie but its sponsored by government services privatisation tagging fraud company Serco, should companmies like this be allowed to sponsor community events? What about arms firms? KPMG appropriate to 'volunteer' their help at 'City Hall'; Bush Residential Home closure; Post Office sell off – sold the public short by a billion pounds; British GDP up but GDP per person down – QE or money printing; Balance of Payments, wealth divide getting bigger, George's personal wealth around one million pounds; George's new Bristol Council Commissions – Fairness, Housing, Sport, and Education & Skills – equality, living wage for council workers; Nick Horne, Chief Executive of Knightstone Housing Association, discusses 'Local Enterprise Partnership', Bristol Property Board and the Bristol Homes Commission' which he chaired, how open and accountable is the new 'Bristol Property Board', not very. Homelessness, social housing; petition of no confidence in Mayor's resident parking scheme; Bristol LibDem's petition for a referendum to to overturn office of mayor and return to the party system; the poorest in Britain live on average nine years less than the richest; Birmingham Muslim Schools 'Trojan horse report', just more Muslim baiting?
