Does council leader George Duggins know he’s losing what the council once secretly dubbed its ‘media war’ with Coventry City’s owners Sisu?
Perhaps presumptuously, he told an investigator in 2015: “It takes something for a football club to take on a council and the public to be on the council’s side.”
This week, less boldly amid public criticism, he said: “They’re trying to distract people of Coventry” away from his intransigent ‘no talks’ position, after he failed to show for all-party talks in Westminster.
‘Leader’ Duggins, the council and Wasps should sit down, talk and work to keep Coventry City in Coventry for next season.
When even the anti-Sisu Sky Blue Trust demands that, you know your preconditions to negotiations are unpopular.
