Labour Controlled Council

Leeds Arena

Now that the building of the Leeds Arena is almost finished, I wonder what its value would be if it were put up for sale. Leeds City Council have already sold off many of its assets. The ticket prices for the acts are no different from that of a private company. So what is the advantage of keeping it in Council ownership? Perhaps our Labour controlled council might prefer it in their ownership, but surely most Conservative Councillors would be in favour of selling it off? Isn’t that the difference between Conservative and Labour, the Labour ethos is for public ownership, whereas the Conservatives believe that private businesses perform better.
