More Earthquakes in Courtfield Ward
Last year the Dame brought news of a spectacular personality clash between the Chairman of Courtfield Ward, James Fairey, and the odious Cllr Sir Anthony Coates Bt. BSc. MD, FRC Path, FRCP etc etc etc.
It got to the point where Fairey could no longer sit in the same room as the rude, ugly and obnoxious Coates so he resigned as Ward Chairman. Horrified Committee members also resigned in support and solidarity with Fairey.
Ranking Ward Councillor, confirmed bachelor, Cllr Tony Holt, did his best to smooth feathers. He persuaded Fairey to stay on as Chairman until a replacement could be found. Fairey, genuflected to Holt and reluctantly stayed on, arranging one or two more Ward events, including a £130 a head event for socially avaricious residents with his close friend, disgraced but famous Lord Archer.

In a new twist to the Courtfield soap opera, James Fairey has now resigned his membership of the Conservative Party in protest at "Dave" Cameron's support for gay marriage. This is unsurprising. Like Daniel 'Boys' Moylan, Fairey is a cradle Catholic(St Richards, Downside) so he follows Church dictates on the matter.
This has put ranking Councillor Holt on the spot. His own settled affairs with his long term partner makes it inconvenient for him to argue with Fairey in a second attempt to "bring him round" while odious Coates gloats in quiet satisfaction. But in a perfect Conservative moment, the Party has rallied around. An ambitious young Westminster seeker, Ms Ali, has made herself available as interim Chairperson of Courtfield Ward. For the time being no one knows what anyone is thinking, but the party goes on......
