Jennifer Ware, a stalwart of the Earl's Court Society has asked that this be passed to Dame Hornet. The Dame is delighted to oblige......

"At a meeting last night with many people, all property owners and some very wealthy, living in Earl's Court (Jonathon's Ward) everyone was horrified by his views. It is the preservation of our built environment in every detail which makes the area so desirable (and expensive)."


  1. Cllr Cockell's Dictatorship is starting to crumble. Ms Ware has been a stalwart supporter and was rewarded with a place on the Standards Committee. And as one of the High Command in Earls Court she has turned against her Ward Councillor.

    What next?

  2. Even for blind and deaf Pooter the writing is on the wall. He must sense that it is time to fire Cllr Read form the Planning Committee where the ex Goldman Sachs Banker is obviously incapable of implementing policy

  3. Ms Ware is a dangerous enemy for Cllr Read to have. He needs to watch his back

    The woman is long past her sell by date

  5. Follower of Phelps6 September 2012 at 17:14

    Disgraced ex Cllr Phelps is squirming as his successor screws up his Earls Court seat. Barry continues to plot his return

  6. It seems as if Friend of Cllr Read is determined to embarrass the councillor at evert turn. Could this 'Friend' be none other Barry trying f...k up Cllr Read's council career?

  7. Councillor Read is like many new Councillors is inexperienced, arrogant and will no doubt stand down when something better comes along. Sir Merrick should take note and encourage established long standing residents of RBK&C to put their names forward to take on the responsibilities of a Councillor with enthusiasm, dignity and integrity.

    1. Cllr Read is one of a growing list ambitious young Tories who have their eye on Westminster and find it convenient to park themselves as Councillors in Kensington and Chelsea (where they happen to live, close to Westminster) until something better comes along. They are not focused on local issues and local people and will be off at the first opportunity. Ex Cllr Margot James was one of the first. It was only a few months after her selection as a Conservative Councillor that she was off to Westminster riding the wave of "more women MP's"

    Hornton Street is shaken that one of its own, Jennifer Ware, has gone public and dared to criticise the Cockell Administration. As an insider she is not supposed to do this. For the time being Ms Ware has not been demonised like Caryl Harris (South Kensington and Queensgate Residents),), Anthony Walker (Edwardes Square Residents),Gordon Taylor (West London Residents Association), James Thomson (Save Sloane Square), and David White (Campden Hill Residents)and labelled "deranged woman", "nutter", "NIMBY", "unsound" and "lost it".

  9. The word is out that there is a move to deselect Cllr Read
