So having won re-election, but with a reduced vote share, you might expect that Mayor Marvin Rees would be all about building dialogue and bridges. So we went and asked (on Twitter) an important question as the Colston 4 trial approaches; is he still supporting the prosecution of the four people caught up in the police drag-net? His answer was to block us:
1/2. On Tuesday we tweeted this entirely reasonable comment/question regards #Bristol Labour Mayor Rees – Why is he providing evidence to prosecute 4 protesters over the #ColstonStatue Toppling? Where is that #Colston display at @mshedbristol he promised us?
Then guess what… pic.twitter.com/5jfJF1NVA8

Looks like we are not the only ones to notice the contradiction! (However, we have no idea why he’s actually blocked us?)
