Super Casino Bid Controversy

Reports in the national papers today about the Super Casino Bid for Greenwich would appear to show that the company seeking to turn the Dome into a Super Casino, Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) misrepresented the views of religious faith groups located on the peninsula. "This would appear to add pressure to an already tense situation surround the future of the dome," says Blackheath Westcombe Councillor Alex Wilson.

This has been yet another thorn in the argument to build a super casino on the peninsula, this is after Conservative Councillor and Spokesman for Culture Nigel Fletcher was stopped from reporting the contents of a report into the impact of a super casino located on Greenwich Peninsula.

Cllr Fletcher said, "This whole saga is becoming rather absurd.  The casino bid is of crucial importance to the future regeneration of the Borough, and I am very much in favour of it, but people should be able to debate the issue on its merits before the decision is made, not afterwards.  I have great sympathy for Council officers, who seem to have their hands tied by the obstruction of PwC.  Meanwhile, I am effectively gagged from discussing information which I believe should rightly be in the public domain."
