More doubt being cast on the future of the mass transit system in Bristol 24/7 from the deputy mayor who places the blame at WECA» (West of England Combined Authority - about)'s door.

Transport is WECA» (West of England Combined Authority - about)’s responsibility. Bristol City Council was never going to build a public transport system on its own, and WECA has never been anything other than lukewarm about an underground. So what is the point of this story, and who benefits from the outrage it seeks to create?
