The Dame has not been alone in declaring Cockell's other income generator, that useless quango, the LGA, to be a complete waste of millions. That opinion has at last been vindicated...
It's been a bad week for our PM. 
Eight of Britain's greatest cities have told Pooter that they can do without his services. This brings the total of councils leaving to twenty! As we know, when this sort of exodus occurs the floodgates open.

I've still got ten members left!
The Local Government Association supports our Prime Minister's household paying him £60,000 a year:they may now be regretting selecting this accident prone fellow.....

To rub salt in the wound Pooter’s fat friend, Mr Pickles, just announced that he was cutting £2 million of LGA funding. 

Were that not bad enough eight of England’s leading cities, including Newcastle, have given notice that they would be giving up their LGA membership. 
Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield have decided to leave the LGA. They sneeringly claim that their own lobby, “Core Cities’ was better equipped to win lucrative ‘city deals’.
These ‘core cities’are the main drivers of the UK economy.  

With the quitting of these ‘power cities’ the reign of Pooter has seen twenty councils fleeing his bloated and flaccid quango.

A furious Merrick Cockell described the Departmental cut as "completely unexpected". 
His 'talking head' said, "The extremely short timeframe makes it very difficult to plan the necessary savings. We have already made more than £16m in cuts over the last four years ... it is astonishing that the government has announced this cut just two weeks ahead of the start of the financial year."
So much for Pooter having mates in high places.....


  1. the sooner this waste of our money folds the better. Sadly Pooter will lose half his income...could not happen to a greedier pig!

  2. What plonker. He couldn't even organise a ..........

  3. This is TERRIBLE news for K&C residents. With his £60k at the LGA under threat and no sign of his hoped for £140k from House of Lords troughing, Pooter will hang on for dear life to his £70k from long suffering council tax payers in Kensington and Chelsea.

    1. Surely the poodles will not be so short sighted and greedy to keep Prime Minister Leader Sir Pooter Merrick Cockell of the Royal Borough in office for a 15th staggering year??????

    2. Off with his head

  4. It is irritating how these fat cats are suddenly able to find £16 million of savings when pressure is applied. Just like the £30 million of savings that K&C has managed to "find". The question should be why were these profligate spendings approved in the first place? Why do we pay all these Officers huge sums of money to run efficient ships if all they manage to do is the opposite??

    Sounds like Pooter is not long for this life

    It usually takes a recession, or a profits crisis in business, to get rid of excess and profligate spending. In Government it is the Quangos that get chopped first and in business it is usually the bloated staff functions. Tax payers should be grateful that there is at least one silver lining in the recession if questionable bodies like the LGA are quietly allowed to wither away

    1. But the recession is not solving the problem of "squatter" Pooter. Eviction is long overdue.
