Moylan lunch bill comes onto the radar

Well, the competition launched by Hornet earlier this really has opened the flood gates, and to those who specifically requested not to have their comments published you can see Hornet is good to her word.

But thanks for the info anyway to everyone. Lets take a look at the lunch you, the taxpayer of K&C paid for Cllr Moylan to entertain a chap called Marc Vlessing. This info is publicly available on the council website.

Now Hornet doesnt purport to know Mr Vlessing, nor even to have heard of him, but clearly Cllr Moylan has, or at least did, as he submitted a bill of £60 for a lunch between these two chaps.

Dining in luxury at the Royal Garden Hotel chinese restaurant Min Jiang between them they ate Yam Croquette, Prawn Rolls, Duck Rolls, Siew Mai (pork dumplings Hornet thinks), a steamed bun (Xiao Long Bao), and some turnip dish.

The two "Snowy Flakes" are not the things that gave Anthea Turner a headache, its Tiramisu with Chocolate, two of them AND a slab of the old cheesecake as well, tut tut tut.

Polished off with a double espresso, each, and a £5.50 tip to bring the bill that you kindly paid for, to a round £60.

Nice work.

So, who, dear reader is Moylan entertaining at this chow-down that you have very kindly coughed up for? A chap according to the council called Marc Vlessing.

But who is Marc Vlessing?  Hornet has no idea and thanks to a little detective we shall call "UB40" (thats what he or she called him or herself) we have some information on a chap who shares this very name.

From the information supplied to Hornet, from publicly available sources (yes, Hornet has verified this) Mr Vlessing has in the past been a director at an international bank, and at a company that is owned by various financial firms sending messages to each other.

Now he is involved in an investment company, venture capitalists you know the kind of stuff they do, and a boutique company that specifically targets people who earn too much to qualify for social housing, but not enough to buy on the open market - a kind of estate agent.

A director at international bank in the city, other  financial firms and an estate agent...

Now that got Hornet kind of wondering......................

Hornet had another quick gander at the Declaration of Interests submitted by Daniel Michael Gerald Moylan, and can see he lists amongst his numerous business interests "Egan Associates" that "provides financial training and consultancy services to banks, securities companies and other financial institutions"

DMGM is also a director of "The British Real Estate Fund" incorporated in the tax haven of the Channel Islands and listed on the Irish Stock Exchange. He is also involved in "Glanmore Property Company" and "Glanmore Investments Limited"

.... a financial industry related firm and a property company.

So dear reader, Moylan is the Cabinet member for Planning. In order for him to submit receipts for external meetings, like this one, then it needs to be because the business conducted at the meeting is related to Moylans responsibilities as a member.

So what could the Planning supremo possibly be discussing, council related, with Mr Vlessing that would justify him submitting this receipt for you to pay?

There is absolutely nothing wrong in Cllr Moylan meeting Mr Vlessing in a personal capacity, and Mr Vlessing has done absolutely nothing wrong at all. But if it was a meeting discussing in whole or in the main personal business interests, Moylan has absolutely no right to make the council tax payers of RBKC pay for it.

The question is, were the matters under discussion more to do with Cllr Moylans private business interests rather than his responsibilities in council - as it would seem when you consider these circumstances - in which case, why did he submit the receipt and will he refund it?

If not, Moylan should 'fess up and tell us exactly what was going on?
