The last time the bridge came up for sale Oxfordshire County Council missed buying it because they weren’t quick enough off the mark.
OCC’s official statement says they will "discuss the issue in due course". Hmmm… in due course may not be fast enough. The chance for OCC to buy the bridge comes up no more than a couple of times a century, so we must act now.
Don’t accept their 'in due course' flannel. It’s not like they haven’t already had years to consider this matter.
