Trouble at Casino!

Apparently there is trouble at mill (well Westminster) with Manchester's surprise win in the Super Casino bid. It seems according to this report in the Sunday Telegraph that the House of Lords and indeed many Labour backbenchers are in revolt.

It also seems the Dome's owner, Anshutz failed to meet with the right ministers. The favored Manchester bidder has had 12 meetings with ministers.

The big thing about this will , of course be the smell of sleaze. Butter up enough of the right ministers, and it matters not how many other ministers your competitors have buttered up. Labour is smelling very badly right now.


I will of course have more scandal on the dome later. Particularly the actual people building it, and their qualifications.
