Flamingo Land Tory Donations IV

Tory-dominated Scarborough Borough Council’s preferred bidder for the Foreshore Road Futurist Theatre site, Flamingo Land Limited and its director Gordon Gibb, have again made sizable donations to the Tory party.

The donations, which were recorded on the Electoral Commission web site this year, bring the total donated to the Tories by Flamingo Land and theme park director Gordon Gibb to a whopping £171,000.

Robert Goodwill, Scarborough & Whitby’s Two-Faced Tory Parliamentary Candidate claimed to be a ‘Staunch Eurosceptic‘ who actually came out for the Remain Campaign is quoted:

There are also exciting plans for an iconic attraction at the Futurist site.

As is usual for Goodwill, he’ll change his mind on any given subject if he can trouser a bit more money.

Gibb, the owner of Flamingo Land, has long eyed building a large development in Scarborough:

“We have been talking with the council for a number of years to see if there were any areas of major development to help them with.”

The vote to demolish the Futurist was taken on January 9th 2017. The result of St Nicholas St jury is as follows:
