Stampede!

Apparently, Swindon Borough Council is being overwhelmed by universities interested in opening a campus in the town.

Council leader Rod Bluh, said he could not reveal the identities of the universities as talks were ongoing but that he remained optimistic a deal could be struck. He said: “We have spoken to one or two universities, but investment is far from certain at this stage.”

Wow! So many! I’m impressed!

“This is a great example of cross party politics working at its best. I have already been working closely with Michael Wills on this and Ann Snelgrove is also concerned about exactly the same issues,” said Coun Bluh. Speaking in Parliament on Friday, South Swindon MP Mrs Snelgrove said she was concerned about the delay.

If this is cross party politics at its best, I hope we never see it at its worst.
