Against BIDs Facebook group takes off

We had a very nice email from the Against BID Facebook group saying they found our site very useful and wanted to thank us. We’re pleased to help and in return support them.

This is how the group describes BIDs and the group:

Business Improvement districts destroy the free commerce of a city. They are undemocratic, unaccountable and uneconomic.
Initially this group evolved to counter the iniquitous behaviour of the Plymouth City Centre Company but it has now grown to counter all the unfairness and unaccountability of all BID companies throughout the UK and the world. Bid companies remove the democratic principles of public community and transfer urban governance to the hands of an unelected elite motivated purely by business profit.

Please do join the more than 1,100 members of the Against BID group hereĀ https://www.facebook.com/groups/nobid/
