So this council as to save £100 million over the next three years, so how come they are prepared to fight this claim of £226.80, surely a barrister will cost them much more or are they assuming that Mrs Thomas will back down rather than fight a large important body as Bristol City Council. From the biography of Martin Rees, the elected Mayor of Bristol, "Marvin has pledged to make Bristol a fairer city for all.
