Hammersmith and Fulham under Corbynite Cowan is no slouch when it comes to finding devious ways of raising much-needed revenue. When you consider Cowan is Jewish it surprising he has any time for his anti-semite friend
Struggling to look human!

The Council's latest trick is a parking sign of such utter deviousness that it has turned into a real money spinner. 

That's why, at appeal, London Boroughs throw out 30% of the Council's try-on's! What a lousy record.

So complex is the sign that even the CEO remarked to one of his several victims, "that even I do not understand and would report it to his base" 
That didn't stop him hanging around in the pouring rain waiting for prey!

When a victim asked whether the CEO would provide a statement to that effect to facilitate an appeal the Chief Parking Panjandrum, Bram Kainth refused!

How often do we look around Chelsea and wonder how such and such a monstrosity ever got planning consent?
The Chelsea Barracks is one such example of a monster suited to Dubai but not elegant Chelsea.
MISARA has set up an award...the Carbuncle Award and Chelsea residents have just one week to nominate a local building which should never have been allowed to see the light of day. 
Please read below and hurry with your nomination/s: you have just seven days to get them in.

To: All Residents' Associations in Chelsea
Dear Fellow Residents,

Late last year the Milner Street Area Residents' Association (MISARA) announced that it would inaugurate an annual award for the ugliest new building in Chelsea, to be known as the Chelsea Carbuncle. Residents and others are encouraged to submit nominations for the award, for which the winner will be chosen by a panel of three distinguished judges, of whom details are given below. "Chelsea" means that part of RBK&C south of Fulham Road, Walton Street and Pont Street, "new building" means anything built in recent years, and the judges will be at liberty to confer such other awards as they see fit.

Do please circulate this information to all your members, and encourage them to submit nominations by sending an email with photographs of the buildings to our email address (above):


The deadline for nominations is Monday 21 October at 23.59. The judges will be meeting on 28 October for a tour of the nominated buildings. The winners will be announced at MISARA's Annual General Meeting on 5 November.

MISARA has purchased three wooden spoons as prizes, and will invite representatives of the architects, the developer and the planning officers to the AGM to collect them. The chairman of the judges, Dr. John Martin Robinson, will make a short speech to explain the judges' decisions. Photographers will be on hand to record the occasion.


In 2006 Building Design, the specialist weekly magazine widely read by the architectural profession initiated a popular annual competition for the ugliest new building in the UK, with the winner receiving the Carbuncle Cup. Candidates are submitted by readers across the country and the winner is selected by a panel of judges from a shortlist of six ugly buildings publicised with short descriptions and photographs on the magazine's website. We are happy to acknowledge this with gratitude as our original inspiration for the Chelsea Carbuncle.

Pious Aspiration

We hope that the annual award of the Chelsea Carbuncle, of which the award in 2019 will be the first, will lead over time to a visible improvement in new building design in Chelsea.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Richard Grantley
Chairman, MISARA

Details of the judges:

Dr John Martin Robinson is one of Britain's best known architectural historians. 

Will Palin is Director of Conservation at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich.

Anthony Delarue is a distinguished church architect.

The Dame enjoyed a quick bite with a just retired MEP.  
He regaled her with stories of life in Brussels: she became quite envious. 
It seems a few former colleagues worked the system with such deviousness they boosted their tax free income to levels approaching €250,000 a year...
The Dame's chum told her though no longer an MEP he picks up his chunky salary for two years. 
This is to help him settle back into the 'real world' as he calls it!
One of the problems facing certain ex MEP's he said was an emptiness in their lives. 
Though they had never had any real work to do they loved the attention they got.
He mentioned Doc Tannock who loved his job as EU Foreign Affairs panjandrum travelling the world first class and accumulating various orders from countries you don't want your gap year daughter sending postcards from.
Anyway, it seems that Doc misses his huge salary and bossing around EU staff.
The Dame has the answer....prior to getting on the EU gravy train the Doc was a shrink.

Depressed And Jobless
Lost an Empire but not found a Role!

Why does he not persuade the EU to allow him to provide counselling for traumatised ex MEP's like himself? 
Sorted, says the Dame

The local police force has imposed a Section 60 due to the sudden surge in gang violence as a result of gang warfare.
A dimwitted member of the Lords who pretentiously names himself Lord Naseby is backing a bill banning the sale of knives. Does he really think it beyond the wit of these lowlife's not to be able to make one?

Naseby was some backbench MP of no intelligence but got his £300 a day allowance for coming up with stupid ideas like this.

Knife crime would stop overnight if penalties fit the crime.

Some months ago the Dame was asked to contribute her thoughts on how to reduce the noise of supercars. 

Being an avid reader she picked up on a government trial of acoustic cameras and insisted the Council get in on the trials
When she reported this innovation to the Council Panel she was genuinely shocked that not one officer knew of the trial!

In no time at all Cllr Johnny Thalassites got in on the act. 
If he had been doing his job properly he would not have needed an old lady to tell him of this innovative approach to tackling the problem.

The Dame was surprised to find that young Johnny has never had a proper job so the £55,000 a year he is getting must be like manna from heaven: his mama must be delighted to have him off her hands.....


Here's a picture of the utterly hopeless Cllr Pascal hopping into his £60, 000 set of wheels.
Pascal was offered the Mayorship as compensation for being booted off the leadership team. 
This dented the £75,000 a year the hubby and wife team were pulling in.
Pascall is a rather foolish and inept fellow. One of his 'brainwaves' was a project to recycle Nespresso capsules!

RBKC pays lip service to reducing the dangerous levels of toxic air in the Borough. Major offenders are queueing taxis with their vile idling diesel engines spewing out poison. Has the Council a plan to deal with this menace? No.
Similarly, The Big Bus Tour company runs ancient vehicles more suited to a third world country.
It's time this council showed some initiative and determination. For a start, CEO's who seem to idle their time away should be able to ticket vehicles with stationary idling engines

Looks like Cllr Palmer is having more than his fifteen minutes of fame...two mentions in Private Eye!
Did the Queen's Gate ward vote for an Independent? Well, that's what they have. 
Time for a bye-election so residents can finally get rid of the imposter.

The Dame is keen to ask all candidates a few questions. Hopefully, they won't be shy and will volunteer.

First up is Miss Rabina Khan from the Rotten Borough of Tower Hamlets.....the Liberal Democrat choice for upmarket Kensington.

"In April 2015, Khan along with the remaining 17 Tower Hamlets First councillors was described by Commissioner Richard Mawrey QC, acting as a judge in an election court investigating Lutfur Rahman's election, as being elected to Tower Hamlets Council "with the benefit of the corrupt and illegal practices".
Although Khan was not implicated in any claims of electoral fraud. In the same month, Khan announced that she will be standing in the election for mayor of Tower Hamlets as an Independent candidate. In June 2015, she came second to Labour candidate John Biggs.
Interestingly, her husband is a close supporter of Rahman"

  • What was her relationship with the electoral fraudster Luftur Rahman, the city boss of Tower Hamlets
  • Why did Rahman endorse her as his mayoral replacement and claim her as his protégée
  • Apart from a short-lived involvement with Grenfell survivors what connection does she have with the remainder of the Constituency
  • Emma DC has been involved in several resident driven campaigns in the south. Why has Miss Khan been so conspicuously absent
  • What does she feel are the main issues facing the constituency
  • Does she support Cable's plan for swingeing property taxes
  • Does she believe the Referendum result should be ignored?
  • Why did she leave the Labour party
  •  She is claimed to have been a driving force behind Tower Hamlets First, which was accused by many of corrupt practice, bullying et

  • How will she explain to the Leaver majority the potential decision by the Lib Dems to cancel Brexit with withdrawing Article 50
  • If elected will she move to the constituency
