Fielding Mellen censored and £5,000 down the plughole

A loyal reader has just commented that the Dame's link to Rock's video has been disabled. This is not amusing. Our Council has just blown £5,000 on a video which saw daylight for just days before angry colleagues demanded it be removed. Is this what cost cutting is all about?

The Dame won't abide envy and jealously.
It seems that when she showcased Rock's Report to Residents certain councillors(and she won't name and shame) were furious that the young upstart had been given a standing start in the Leadership race by patron, Der Leader. The Dame warned young Rock to beware of Der Leader's Machivellian ways so was unsurprised to see that Mr Fitzpatrick of PRs' handiwork had been removed from the Rotten Borough's website. Anyway, for those who still wish to see it here it is....


  1. I uinderstand that the cost of producing this ridiculous video was £5,000

  2. £5,000! Outrageous!

    But dear Dame, I can't make it work, have they frozen it in time or is it my computer? I did so want to put it on youtube.

  3. WASP

    What are your sources? I can't believe even the Rotten Borough could spend £5K on THAT!

  4. Its £4,784.52 to be exact.

    Videos do not come cheaply. There is coaching, rehearsals, dry runs, script writing, make up and shooting. Our friends employed a coach, producer, director, make up artist and auto-Q. Plus the equipment and the props

    Actually, it is a very good price

  5. the film is still on the website
