Birmingham City Council Seeks £5 Billion of Qatari Cash

Recommended Posts


Oh well would you look at that. Birmingham! is seeking £5 Billion of Qatari Cash! This does not sit well with me at all! given the level of multiculturalism in that city!

Britain’s largest local authority concluded a landmark “post-Brexit” trade visit to Qatar on Tuesday in a bid to secure up to $6.5 billion in investment.

Birmingham City Council’s three-day business tour to the Gulf is thought to be the first ever undertaken by a British local authority to Qatar to seek funding.

Council leader John Clancy said the visit was in direct response to the British vote to leave the European Union.

“To be frank, it’s a post-Brexit thing,” said Clancy.

“It’s part of a post-Brexit resettlement and cities in the UK in particular have to have an international profile.”

Birmingham, with a population of more than one million and located in England’s west Midlands, wants billions for infrastructure projects and new homes as it seeks to meet the cost of regenerating two areas in Britain’s second most populous city.

The council describes itself as the largest UK local authority.


Who needs a trojan horse when you have the entire city already right?
