You could not make it up, as 'boy image' emailer and ex Mayor, disgraced Barry Phelps was prone to say.
It seems Cllr Sir 'Pooter' Cockell has thrown a tantrum and is not on 'speakers' with Mr Myers, our £260,000 a year Chief Executive.
What has caused the rift?
Those following the Dame may remember Pooter-against the wishes of his saner colleagues-forced through the purchase of a personal number plated £110,000, 1200 HP Bentley limo, RBKC 1.
Fortunately, they stopped him having it finished in metallic gold....vulgar little chap!
Thanks to the Dame, Pooter was forbidden use of the car by bossman Myers....something he was prone to do-until stopped.
|NO POOTER, YOU CANNOT|
With the Olympics looming, Pooter was anxious to be driven around to various VIP functions using the gas guzzling behemoth: in particular he was keen to sample the exclusive delights of the 'Zil Lanes'. When he asked permission of Mr Myers to use the motor during the Olympics he was told, “get on the tube”.
Well done, Mr Myers, but let's hope Pooter doesn't get spiteful on the subject of your upcoming pay rise......
