|Pickles-All Huff & Puff|
He then went on to quote an example of The City of London Corporation. The Corporation spent £240,000 between February last year and plans the same next year on Quiller Consultants for "strategic advice and guidance".
Now this is the odd part....Quiller is closely associated with the Conservative Party. George Bridges who runs Quiller is a 'close personal friend' of the PM and has been a campaign adviser. (What is a personal friend, Dame Ed?)
Huntsworth, which owns Quiller, is chaired by greasy social climber, Lord Chadlington: Chadlington is a very firm friend, neighbour and financial supporter of Dave C.
Mr Pickles asked, ''why councils simply cannot pick up the phone is beyond me''.
But what is beyond the Dame is why Mr Pickles cannot just pick up the phone and talk to Mr Bridges directly-or his boss, Lord C: maybe neither would take his call!
The sad fact is that Mr Pickles is all bluff and bluster and is not up to the job. He should go and do a barrow: just an obese windbag.
