THE DAME DOES A MEA CULPA

Sometimes the Dame deserves a good kicking. 



In the case of the Agresso debacle readers have been quick to point out that she has not followed through on this mess.

Can someone with knowledge of the situation write to the Dame so we can all understand more?
She has the impression Agresso has now been re-branded as Unit 14(Orwellian) and is in the hands of some Dutch company

SAVE MARLBOROUGH PRIMARY SCHOOL PETITION HANDED IN

The Dame is rather jealous of Mr Conrad's piece in the http://www.kctimes.co.uk/

He has written an excellent piece on the proposed destruction of this vibrant piece of Victorian architecture.
When it comes to Conservation this Conservative council fails on every count,

Cllr Coleridge will be linked with that awful vandal, the late and very sinister, Nicholas Freeman, as a destroyer of our heritage.
It was Freeman who ordered the illegal destruction of the old Town Hall.....a dreadful little fellow.

WELL DONE NICK PAGET-BROWN!


And still on the subject of noise....




Thanks to Nick Paget-Brown those selfish idiots from the Gulf and other states who think it clever to ruin the lives of residents face a backlash.
If we behaved in this way in their fly blown countries we would be locked up.
They shame their countries by their vulgar behaviour

Good work Nick

ALL PLANNING CONSENTS SHOULD BE GRANTED CONDITIONAL ON A CONSTRUCTION NOISE REDUCTION PLAN


The Dame says PLEASE SIGN

"We propose that all future planning consent should be granted with a condition covering noise and nuisance: a Construction Noise Reduction Plan"

Loss of amenity is relevant to whether planning permission should be granted. The National Planning Guidance says clearly that construction noise is a relevant factor as to whether planning permission is granted.
Residents objecting to planning applications are routinely told that noise and nuisance cannot be considered in the decision-making process. This is incorrect. We suggest that the Council applies its own policies and follows the national guidance. "
Please sign this petition and show the Council that we want to be protected just as other residents are in other local authority area.

THE DAME TO REVEAL THE PAST OF LABOUR GROUP SEX BOMB

In her day The Dame was an extremely hot number
turning the heads of many gorgeous, rich and aristocratic suitors.
A FEMME FATALE
But she has competition within the Labour Group.
If you thought ardent Labourites were dull, worthy and not interested in matters carnal  you would be very wrong.



Let the Dame introduce you to our very own local Labour sex pot, Cllr Pat Healy.
Pat may be the wrong side of seventy five but on her history she deserves the accolade... “Femme Fatale: Plus”.

Ludo, the Dame’s idiot grand nephew, has been sent by the Dame to Selly Oak to see just how Pat measures up to the Dame.....


Pat, in her youth, inspired fiery reactions.....

Ludo suggested that he interview Cllr Pat but the Dame put her foot down. 
With Cllr Pat’s reputation for ‘Social Affairs’ the boy would not be safe....



More to follow......

BUSINESS FAILURE POOTER COCKELL TO LEAD BUSINESS GROWTH!

How does Sir Pooter Cockell do it?

Laughing all the way to the bank

A man with no education and nil success in business gets to be appointed chairman of the Crossrail 2 Growth Commission. Read about it HERE





Pooter's 'business' was a three man  commodity broking operation sited in the basement below the Conservative Association offices.
Called Abingdom Cockell is ceased trading, never having turned a profit.
So then that Pooter decided to reinvent himself as a local government entrepreneur.
It's been a smart move. 
He has managed to work the system so successfully his entire income of £140k a year income has been provided by taxpayers.
His sponging off the taxpayer is the stuff of legends...
Here is just one example DAILY MAIL

Those who know him remain mystified as to how this uneducated business failure could have got so far.

But the greatest irony of all is his appointment to the Growth Commission.
The only thing Pooter knows about business is based on his selling cigarettes in Africa!

No wonder local government is seen as  a laughing stock when the likes of Pooter are seen to thrive.

SCRAP RBK&C'S USELESS PR TEAM!

What on earth is the point of the Council's £450,000 a year PR department?

It only seems fit for producing the Royal Borer and nothing else judging by the hammering the Council received over the handling of the Sotello case(reported by the Dame in the previous post)


The solution is to do one of two things......

a. Scrap Fitzpatrick's useless little empire and retain proper external pr advisers
b. Merge it with H&F or Wandsworth.


It was quite incapable of putting the council's case-hence the mashing in all the national 'heavies'.


EDUCATION OFFICERS NEED TO GET SOME EDUCATION

It is the right of every parent to 'home school their children.

So the Dame was flabbergasted to read in the Evening Standard the council had spent tens of thousands of pounds on a legal action against Mrs Sortello. 
Then, at the eleventh hour, decided to withdraw from the prosecution.
To rationalise its wastefulness it claimed it dropped the case as it had now been provided with the 'relevant information'. The Dame understands this is a downright lie and just a ruse to justify the reckless pursuit of a highly intelligent and committed mother.

MRS SOTELLO AND SON
One suspects that officers have just a bit too much time on their hands......

And, on that self same subject, the Dame thinks it a good idea for some officers in the 'soft' departments to be seconded to work in the wealth creating sector for six months. 
One doubts they would last more than a day.
