I FOUND the comments by councillor Alan Rice (Herald letters, January 13) rather surprising.
He suggests his party, the Liberal Democrats, could “broker a deal” between Worthing Borough Council and AMF Bowling.
Firstly, the council and AMF are engaged in a rent negotiation, which will be conducted by both parties in a professional and business-like manner, contrary to the recent speculation.
Secondly, it seems councillor Rice has forgotten about the last time his party were in a position to “broker a deal”. In 2004, they were responsible for handing the town’s car parks over to NCP.
Thanks, but no thanks, Alan.
