The Dame has heard that Cllr Gardner has worked hard on Abingdon Ward planning issues and has been especially good with poor residents in Shaftesbury Place-next to Tesco and the new development there. Evidently, she holds weekly meetings with them. Well done Cllr Gardner.
The Dame wishes to hear about good cllrs-not just loonies like Palmer.
However, the same, sadly, cannot be said of the feckless Elizabeth Campbell. It seems that this councillor is quite incapable of understanding a brief-to the despair of officers.(so they tell the Dame)
What strikes the Dame as odd is that Cockell insists on promoting councillors who just lack intellect. Instead, he refuses to promote anyone could intellectually challenge him...not too difficult, we know!
Cllr E. Campbell is known to be quite thick.
There are some very bright Conservative councillors. Two come to mind immediately...Cllrs Lindsay and Read. Why does Pooter cast them into outer darkness? The answer is obvious...they have intellect and they have integrity and these are two gifts he feels uncomfortable with.
Cllr E. Campbell is described as extremely pompous. As the Dame knows so well... pomposity is in inverse proportion to lack of talent.
