A neat disappearing trick

Compare and contrast. The leader of Swindon Borough Council, Roderick Bluh, quoted at the beginning of July.

We have been having discussions with various universities, but this is about what is best for Swindon not what is best for developers.

And quoted today, less then four weeks later.

Before a university can be brought to Swindon there would have to be discussions with the council and MPs and as far as I know there hasn’t. We have certainly not been party to any discussions about a university and the developers should certainly be pushed on who this university is.

That looks like a bad case of amnesia to me.
