Our highly paid(£130,000 plus pension) and invisible leader, Sir M Cockell was furious, accusing Lady Denman of being 'political'. So what did Lady D write which caused Pooter to huff and puff so?
Well, it seemed she dared accuse the Council of doing nothing to prevent the closing down of Heinz Schumi's business in Britten Street. It is an accusation based on good evidence.
Pooter is Mr Schumi's ward councillor, as is also the quite useless and equally invisible, Paul Warrick. And it was Warrick who chaired the Planning Committee which presided over the demise of this delightful and popular local business!
The Dame's has noticed something in the air....residents are slowly beginning to rebel against indolent and ineffectual councillors. The days when you could stick a blue rosette on some pedophile candidate and he would get elected are thankfully drawing to a close......
Residents need to look at their councillor and drill down to see what they are doing for their often lucrative allowances. The next Council elections will be hard fought. UKIP are on a roll and will be fielding much higher quality candidates. They see RBK&C as a council they can make big inroads into.
Interestingly, Warrick, under the 'Ambition' section on the RBK&C website lists 'none'!
Anyway, The Dame diverges.....can she please have a copy of the Pooter letter?
