To finance the £100 million Holland Park School rebuild-notable for exceeding the Government's upper limit of £25 million-our very own Pooter, desperate to plonk his ample posterior on the red leather of the Upper House, decided that he needed to finance his Lords gambit by flogging off much valued playing fields at Holland Park School. He did so to finance his egotistical ambitions. It was not even if this vast overspend created one extra space...it did not!
So in one fell swoop recreational land is handed over to greedy developers and future generations of young people are deprived of precious inner city play space, just so dubious 'money men' from rough parts of the world can have a safe bolt hole for their ill-gotten gains.
The Dame likes the Duke of Cambridge so she was delighted to hear he is Patron of a wonderful charity called Fields in Trust
This charity has a great ambition... “to protect outdoor recreational spaces in communities all across the country as a permanent living legacy of these landmark occasions.”
Large urban local authorities have proved most enthusiastic..but not so our Royally Rotten Borough. Under instruction from Pooter-doubtless thinking of what else he can flog...Fitzpatrick of the Propaganda Unit is told to comment......
“our parks managers have decided the borough's parks did not require the additional levels of protection that would come from inclusion in the Fields Challenge".
