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. His priorities are to tackle Bristol’s housing crisis by building more homes and protecting private, improve transport and people flow across the city, ensure early intervention in health and well-being and progress social mobility through access to education and skills." A fairer city for all but not for Mrs Rita Thomas a 89 years old pensioner.
