It would all sound so very exciting were it true.
"£10 million per annum of contracts to businesses in the local economy" would sound so much better were it to read "£10 million per annum guaranteed of contracts to businesses on the Isle of Wight"

Of course that will not happen because, as previously posted, Mr. Unsworth made similar promises to the "local economy" of Bournemouth to the presenters of Meridian Tonight just a couple of weeks ago.
These people are playing one community off against the other with promises of great riches.
I suspect the reason they also REQUIRE registration is to keep away those who might ask awkward questions, which I hope that some who have registered (fishermen, sailors etc.) WILL ask.
Heres one: "If Navitus is approved will you guarantee the predicted sum of £10 million to IW businesses?"
I suspect I already know the answer!
