Default Half Billion lost by Essex Thurrock Council :Disastrous Investments

[Thurrock Council on brink of financial ruin after
disastrous investments leave £500m black hole]


Conservative Mess

Was on ITV1 London news
& BBC1 London news tonight.


[An Essex council is facing a financial black
hole of almost half a billion pounds after
a series of disastrous investments.
Conservative-controlled Thurrock Council
admitted it was in a 'grave financial situation'
and would need a government bailout
to avoid going bust.

Labour accused council chiefs of
wasting public money on 'get rich quick schemes'
including failed solar farm projects.

David Van Day was on that council until this year, so it’s hardly surprising.

Yes good point
Mitchell.


[In 2019, Aker resigned and
Van Day won the subsequent by-election.
He lost the seat to Labour by 20 votes in May 2022.

Conservative MP for Chelmsford Vicky Ford in March 2019

[Van Dayhad a fall from grace 1989
when he declared himself bankrupt and was
reduced to selling fast food in Brighton,
a career move which earned him the
nickname Burger Van Day]


And it gets far Worse :


[He says he doesn't miss the money
or the lifestyle, but adds: 'If I had the money
I'd spend it even quicker. I would do it all again]

[The founding member of pop bands
Guys and Dolls and Dollar, David Van Day,
says that he has blown - or rather snorted - thousands
of pounds on cocaine.
'It was like stuffing it down a manhole,'
he says.]
