@follyforlondon @unadevine I think that's a conspiracy theory too far. It's clear who the trustees are.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to follyforlondon

@follyforlondon @unadevine That doesn't diminish the fact that the ES has been a cheerleader for the project - but important to be accurate.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to follyforlondon

@follyforlondon @unadevine Well maybe - but apart from that story there's no evidence he actually holds any formal role with the GBT.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to follyforlondon

@unadevine to be scrupulously fair, Lebedev is not actually a governor/trustee of the bridge (tho ES reported he volunteered to become one)

@LabPartyTom we have written lots of stories about Waterloo Library over last few years which contain a range of views.

@LabPartyTom i think you have misunderstood. It's a quote from Cllr Edbrooke. Doesn't mean we believe it or endorse it.
