|The Dame Thanks You All!|
There was more post Jubilee jubilation in the streets of the Rotten Borough...No, The Dame has not been awarded the much coveted Mayor's Award..it's much better. Doubtless we will hear from Cockell's cronies, 'Up Yours' Palmer and Cllr 'Boys' Moylan squealing 'no one reads The Dame'. In their desperation they forget something....unlike RBKC consultation exercises you cannot forge Unique Visitor numbers!
So today The Hornet is proud to announce 100,000 unique visitors. After 2.5 years of championing democracy in Kensington and Chelsea she can claim some notable successes derived from campaigns to stop the abuse of power and our taxes. Here are just some......
- No more extravagant Virgin Upper Class jollies to New York by the Leader, Cllr Pooter Cockell
- No more tax payer funded meals "for friends" at expensive 5*international restaurants
- No more use of the Mayor's brand new Bentley by the Leader
- A torchlight shone into dark corners resulting in the sacking of ex Mayor (and friend of Cockell), disgraced ex Cllr Phelps, for distributing vile images of young boys on the Council website.
- Cockell slammed for allowing ex Cllr Andrew Lamont to remain in situ knowing the gravity of the child pornography charges he was later convicted of.
- Exposure of the proposed gay porn star candidate selected for Brompton Ward!
The Hornet, is now required reading for K&C Councillors and local and national newspaper journalists. It's readership is burgeoning in Westminster, Hammersmith and Fulham and the GLA.
It is an established feed for the printed media.
Hornet inspired stories have appeared in the papers like the Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Times,The Daily Mail,The Standard and Private Eye and throughout the net.
It is a "top of mind" fact of life in the Council Chamber and amongst officers. Cockell's feeble attempt to block it failed miserably.
The foundation and fast growth of the Hornet is the result of the decay and excess that has resulted from one Party Conservative rule in Kensington and Chelsea exacerbated by a fourteen year term of leadership by the current incumbent, unemployable ex ciggy salesman, Cllr Cockell.
Simply put, the Dame is keeping the "One Party State" on its toes.
There is a huge democratic deficit in Kensington and Chelsea.It's a regime intoxicated by glam projects (Holland Park School, Exhibition Road, Streetscapes) funded by hard earned council tax. This is a wave of irresponsible spending akin to the 'harlot throughout ages.' And there is a brutal regime of hate, spite and patronage built upon the highest SRA's in the land. It is an administration that has lost sight of its essential purpose- to represent and work honestly in the interests of residents.
Consider the recent decision to ban BT from introducing super fast broadband because their equipment was not sensitive to the "historical tradition" of the Borough! Nowhere else has this problem....so one wonders the worst.....
The Dame's influence grows as she reaches out to residents increasingly alert to the corruption within a very Rotten Royal Borough.
Driven by Freedom of Information, Councillor and Officer moles, plus a liberal helping of common sense, the Dame will continue to prod, expose and ridicule the ludicrous Cockell administration. 200,000 here we come!
