The Dame is-and you had better believe it-politically detached. Were the Rotten Borough in the hands of a LibDem or Labour majority there would doubtless be the same travesties: it is the by product of the Acton dictum...'Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely'.
There are excellent Conservative councillors, but they find it difficult having their voices heard. The Dame would very much liked her devotees to nominate those who stand out.
In the meantime she is very happy to highlight this comment from Cllr Dent Coad.
Cllr E Dent Coad has left a new comment on your post "Exhibition Road-A Stain on the Royal Borough":
Fly on the Wall 18.45, thank you for your kind words. My views on profligate spending are well known; this scheme is not fit for purpose and the need for expensive and constant cleaning puts it into the white fur coat class - self-indulgent, loud and vulgar.
Good public realm should whisper, not shout, it should be functional and easy to maintain,using materials that will age graciously. There are excellent, creative, and even exciting examples all over Europe; this is not one of them.
And in the context of the brutal and ruthless cuts coming our way in the Council budget, this is unforgivable.
