    Council funding for Ricoh Refurb

    Wonder if it's worth asking the council what the net effect on jobs is, given Wasps made a number of redundancies in the last 12 months

    Food outlets created = rental income for little old Wasps

    To be fair I don't think they're that sure how much of an issue contact services are now

    Coronavirus Thread (Off Topic, Politics)

    I think it comes as usual from MPs having a very London centric position when it comes to this. They'll see and hear about the deserted Pret / Starbucks / Nero / Uber and who can pay for lobbyists to press for this sort of change. In fairness these companies employ a decent number of people...

    Coronavirus Thread (Off Topic, Politics)

    Quite low, though I can see that we'd end up in a national lockdown in all but name due to many many local ones. The Tories will try to avoid the perception as much as they can.

    The applications will be public bodies applying for exemptions I think not application for review

    Council funding for Ricoh Refurb

    Isn't that essentially the entire basis of the JR2. The transaction was artificially split in two in order to limit the selling price.

    Council funding for Ricoh Refurb

    Ultimately, whilst this irritates me greatly. It looks like poor value for money and hardly the silver bullet to Wasps' problems. Covid aside, the timescale for doing the work and refurbishment just means the hall is out of action (which says everything about their current order book).

    Council funding for Ricoh Refurb

    Has the money been found for the essential bay platform at Cov Station that is needed to help increase the rail service to the Ricoh (and to Nuneaton and Bedworth more generally?)

    Council funding for Ricoh Refurb

    LEPs do not actually exist as formal entities, they're essentially just a provider of strategic advice. Their money goes solely through the council's books.

    Council funding for Ricoh Refurb

    Time to ask the council how many sustainable (i.e. not short term construction) jobs are to be created by this £3.8m investment and how will they monitor it?

    Council funding for Ricoh Refurb

    It isn't mentioned on the gov.uk website under the C&W projects, not sure if that's because it is being funded by the WMCA too: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/906563/GBF_Summary_Coventry___Warwickshire.pdf

    Council funding for Ricoh Refurb

    Simon being disingenuous as ever. If there was central government funding there will have been an application process with a costed business case which I imagine the Council will have drafted. It isn't like they just said "Transfer £3.8m to Wasps please govt"

    Could they not have used Valley Parade which is much closer?

    Eddie howe leaves bournemouth

    Yeah, I think Dyche has been critical of their prudence a bit sometimes though. He has many similarities with Allardyce
