Curse of the Dome strikes again

Speaking after the announcement that Greenwich has not won the licence to site a Super-casino at the Dome, Greenwich Conservatives’ Culture spokesman Councillor Nigel Fletcher (pictured) said, “The curse of the Dome has struck again. This result confirms our worst fears, and leaves a gaping hole in plans to regenerate North Greenwich. 


“I’m angry that Greenwich has paid such a high price today for Labour’s clumsy mishandling of this process.  Our bid was badly tainted by suspicions that not everything was above-board or that it was a done deal.  John Prescott and other ministers must take a large part of the blame for that, along with the Labour council.”

“We now need to work with AEG as the developers to salvage as much of the jobs and investment as we can from this sorry mess.”
