Kent County Council Land Part 2: The most popular site in Britain
In mid Jan we brought you the post Kent County Council Land: The most popular site in Britain in which we informed you that Quinn Estates along with Atlas Partners Group Ltd (APG Ltd), owned by Mr Nicholas Brown, yes he who owns the former White Lion Pub in Cheriton and is firmly offshore in the British Virgin Islands, have both expressed an interest in the land below which is vital to the building of a new Super Hospital and 2,000 new homes.
This is all seriously f**ked up.
An offshore submitting an offer/bid for the land. Might they use offshore accounts to pay the ‘right’ person/s? How would we know?
Also Quinn comes in for a lot of sh*t but companies such as his don’t give their money away for nothing. There is surely an understanding (probably not made explicit) that large campaign donations buy political access and favourable consideration in policy development and legislation. Why else would a company/corporation, which is bound by law to pursue profits, make these donations?
Pity both of them can’t be banned from making any offer/bid.
