Sadly nothing has changed or been decided, that screen dump (which can be found here https://ww5.swindon.gov.uk/mgIssueHistoryHome.aspx?IId=65126&Opt=0 ) dates from December and relates to notifying that the decision will be made at Cabinet on that date in March, ultimately whatever is agreed between the Council Officers and the club/Trust the final decision lies with the elected members and they are quite within their rights to turn it down whether a price has been agreed at that date or not.

Been nearly 20 yrs since I worked in local govt so not sure why this decision has to be previewed like this (from experience many non contentious matters have to go down very convoluted routes due to adopted standing orders), purely speculating - may be because its a sale of Council property (so ultimately belonging to the taxpayers of Swindon) or possibly related to the ACV issue or because its above a certain value or (as noted) due to its commercial nature certain details will not be made public within the reports relating to the sale considered at Cabinet?

Its another step on the way though!

That looks like it's just the title of what the proposal is.

Separate matter, but Bolton, who used the Covid Future Fund, withdrew the max £5mn available and rather than pay it back, they've diluted it into an 8% share holding for the Future Fund bank, which is basically the tax payer. Bolton Wanderers have been nationalised.

Bolton have spent a lot in transfer fees this season, so makes me feel a bit sick from that perspective that this is probably from them gaming the system.

One would assume that someone at the bank (which whilst govt funded is independently run) feels there is potential to achieve a return on their investment by taking shares, they have been converting these small loans into shareholdings in hundreds of companies they invested in.

8% of total holding is hardly nationalised.

"It was heard it occurred after Ranford had drunk between five and 15 vodka red bulls"

That's er... quite a range.

I’ve have the displeasure of encountering him in the past. As far as I know his ties to town only go as far as Power’s former head of security, I forget his name, the one who got cited (along with Power) for abusing officials. They are best mates. So I expect he’s had Power’s ear on occasion.

One way or another he’s a thoroughly distasteful little man.

Nah, he was just leased the bottom of the car park as a final kick in the bollocks and friends wth the head of security

That Dolphin guy still lords around the County Ground as though he is a prize attraction at Seaworld. He owns platinum security IIRC.
