FINALLY......it seems like the government is listening to the people! Hopefully the developers pull out out of TCI!

3 thoughts crossed my mind while watching the video...

1. Glad the interim gov came to their senses. Doesnt look like its gonna happen or at least any time soon.

2. Looks like the whole "We'll be happy to take our business elsewhere" was a bluf all along since the primary selling point to the investors was T&C. As expected.

3. I'm pretty much out of fruit except for peaches

Thanks for posting, blamona. :-)

"Looks like the whole "We'll be happy to take our business elsewhere" was a bluff all along since the primary selling point to the investors was T&C. As expected."

Been around the development business for many years....... keep an eye out for the "compromise." My guess (and it's only that) is they'll come back with a greatly scaled down proposal, which they had already drawn up, anticpating this moment. These people didn't just fall off the "turnip truck." :-)

We'll see.

Cautiously optimistic, but I think Desi is onto something. Hoping for the best!
