Do As I Say-Not As I Do!

Once again the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea are holding a Climate Change Events during Climate Week in March 2012.

You will be pleased to know that Councillor Cockell will be attending this event. He and the Mayor will be driven there in their climate changing Bentley and Jaguar!
Also attending will be climate change expert, Cllr Read. He will be trying persuade attendees to switch to planet saving vehicles like the RBKC cars below, rather than the greedy, planet destroying Toyota Prius. Thank God we have our own local brainbox, Cllr Read able to lecture us on climate changing Bentleys!

RBKC's Big 6 MPG Answer To Climate Change!

RBKC's Other 12 MPG Answer To Climate Change!

Dear Councillors,

Once again the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea are holding a Climate Change Events during Climate Week in March 2012.

The event will take place in the car park of Ladbroke Grove Sainsbury’s on Thursday 15 March 2012, from 10:00am until 4.00pm

We are keen to get as many residents and councillors to engage in the event, so please can you promote this event amongst your residents and colleagues.  We will be providing a range of tips and advice on how residents can reduce their carbon footprint and save money, as well as some free green goodies to help them save energy. 

I will forward a copy of the events poster as soon as it’s available.  We will be displaying the posters at key locations in the north of the borough and will be sending it via email to all Resident Associations and other key partners. 

If you would like to find out more about the events, or request some leaflets or posters please contact Ms Bennett via email on, or phone her direct on 020 7341 5770.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Mrs Gorsia
Research and Statistics Officer

  1. Too many councillors, too much money, and not enough to do

  2. Read is getting a bashing up for his silly remarks about the eco virtues of the Bentley....what a chump.On yer bike, Cllr Read

  3. Sadly, when asked to produce evidence of his claim at the last Council meeting that the Prius was not more environmentally friendly than the Bentley, Cllr. Read was unable to do so. We can only assume that he has, as was suggested, been watching too much Clarkson.

  4. Well, the car was bought in 2007 and cost £95,327; Autocar says that model - 'the most powerful saloon Bentley ever invented' - in good condition and low mileage could be worth £65,000. Read said £34,000.

    Either way, depreciation alone costs the Council £5-10,000/year. With insurance costs possibly another £10,000, and fuel consumption just 10mpg ... that's worth an awful lot of homework and lunch clubs.

    It's all about priorities, and it's clear as day what they are.

  5. Might the Council show a good example by using their bicycles to go to the event?


  6. As has been pointed out previously on this blog; dignity for them is driving around in a flash Bentley, dignity for us is lying in our shit all night because the Council refuse to pay for domiciliary care. Disgrace!

  7. The Provost of Aberdeen, oil rich Borough, uses a Skoda.

    Hits the nail on the head

    What a shallow prat Cllr Read has turned out to be.
