MP Barry Sheerman's fury over George Hotel sale
Simple Barry you should have put your money where your mouth is and bought it.
Once again Barry makes his comments after the event. If he was so concerned about who was or might buy the George surely with his " contacts " he could have put his fillings in then. Whatever Dr Hussain's plans are surely they will be better than just letting the place go to rack & ruin with broken windows and graffiti.
It doesn't matter who owns it or what it becomes as long as the outside doesn't have major changes to it. It could have easily been boarded up and left to crumble!
Hopefully it wont be too long before the building creates jobs, rates money being paid etc so then the building will make a contribution to the local economy once more!
I've not heard of the major hotel chain that's funded by the world wide rugby league fraternity?
Barry Sheerman needs to face reality and if this does get turned into student accommodation then so be it. If someone spends their own money to buy something they have every right to apply for permission to do what they want with it subject to approval. If no-one else had the money or clout to buy this then why is there all this negative after thought. If fundraising within the rugby community would have stopped this then Barry Sheerman should have do something before the event.
How long till the next election?
Expect to hear more such guff from BS until then, after which we should expect silence.
