NICK PAGET -BROWN....A LEADER FOR ALL RESIDENTS?

The Dame is a fan of Cllr Paget-Brown......
She hopes he will harken to her words of advice....
The scenes outside the Town Hall during the petition handover could and should have been avoided......
How? 
SAVE MAXILLA NURSERY
Westway Trust, under the inept leadership of Angela McConville, is damaging the reputation of the Council.

This blundering and hopeless woman alienates all classes of voter, irrespective of their political views. 
The Dame sees more trouble ahead. It requires the emollient touch of the leader to pour oil on very troubled waters...
VULGAR ICON
A sensible first step would be to get rid of that icon of contemporary vulgarity:the personal number plated Bentley...bought and so beloved by the awful Cockell!

The next would be to de-weaponise the awful McConville.


THE DAME APOLOGISES

Some weeks ago the old Dame asked constituents to submit questions to PPC's on various issues....local and national.
It was the Dame's sad effort to create a sort of on line hustings.

She has taken advice and, as a result, has decided that this could lead to issues vis a vis the electoral rules. For that reason she has decided to keep her nose out of the upcoming General Elections.

She would like to thank Robin McGhee(Lib Dem) Rod Abouharb(Labour) and Victoria Borwick(Conservative) for giving up their time.
As for the others... not a word from UKIP; the Green Party and the other one whose name escapes her.
The Dame was extremely impressed by the three candidates she had the pleasure of meeting and whichever wins the day will do a good job.

Lizzy, you should be ashamed of yourself.The Dame hopes you will be kicked out at the next election. You are past it!
Courtfield residents!....Retire this irritating woman.

MILLIONAIRE BASEMENT WARS....YOU CAN SEE IT HERE

Tonight the old Dame stayed up late, Horlicks in hand, watching BBC1's 'Millionaire Basement Wars'. You can see it HERE






It features some of the basement developments that have caused misery to residents and interviews some pretty ghastly basement developers.

Stopping these greedy, self interested amenity wreckers is a cause that the Council must continue to fight....even if the Goldman bankers and their builders go to the High Court.

PAINTING THE TOWN RED

Neighbours are up in arms over this candy striped paint job....sadly, there is little they can do.....



.....the same would seem to apply if the owner of an entire Pont Street Dutch house decided to bling up his property with an exotic paint job.


You have been warned.....

SAVE MAXILLA NURSERY PETITION HANDOVER: PLEASE BE THERE!


Nothing gives the old Dame greater pleasure than supporting any facility that gives inner city children the chance to play safely.
She urges everybody to go to the Town Hall tomorrow to witness the handing over of the petition to save the Maxilla Nursery.
Why destroy assets which make such a difference to young lives? It's madness.  You can read all about here Petition


Westway23 will be supporting Maxilla Nursery in their Save Maxilla Petition handover on Wednesday (15th) at 5.50pm at the Town Hall, Civic Entrance, Hornton Street. Please make sure you get there at 5.30pm if you are able to, the more support the better.
Our Westway23 meeting will also be on Wednesay (15th) at 7- 9pm at The Flyover, 3-5 Thorpe Close, London W10 5XL.

THE DAME PUTS THE QUESTION TO RBKC'S HEAD OF PLANNING, MR BORE

A PICTURE OF CHELSEA ELEGANCE
In the Dail Mail we READ of the destruction of this fine and elegant house in Burnsall Street. What astonishes residents is how the Planning Dept nitpicks over trivial stuff, yet allows a thing of beauty to be torn down without a murmur...small wonder there is a feeling 'money shouts' in the Borough....or the planners are devoid of taste.







A PIG OF A HOUSE
The 'thing of beauty' has been replaced by this vile pig of a house lacking charm, character or congruity with the surrounding houses.

As one resident said, "It looks like a downmarket mortuary"



Mr Bore needs to answer two questions:

1. Why was permission given to demolish this propery, loved by neighbours- and anyone with a modicum of taste

2.  Why was permission given for a monstrosity which insults Burnsall St.

As for the useless Chelsea Society....not even a murmur of dissent

CAN YOU VOTE THIS GENERAL ELECTION?


There are important new election rules and if you are not sure about whether you can vote you need to CLICK HERE  where the new rules are explained.

Some of us make the mistake of thinking just one constituency covers the Royal Borough, forgetting we have two constituencies and two different Members of Parliament. 
So whichever party you intend voting for make sure you are qualified to do so.
