Just months ago the Daily Telegraph reported Daniel Moylan had been forced off the LLDC board after, “members became frustrated by his maverick ways.”
It took members just three months to tire of him...if elected as leader of K&C how long will it take to tire of him?
In his manifesto Moylan claims that he is a changed man.
He says,having been a backbencher for the last two years, he will become their champion.... if they elect him.
His claim to have changed will be greeted by guffaws from LLDC board members. Its members, most of whom were experienced businessmen, forced his removal.
The likes of Daniel Moylan are incapable of change. Positioning himself as a backbencher is a distortion of reality. Moylan was never at the Town Hall: he was too preoccupied with his lucrative jobs with Transport for London and the GLA.
In fact, not only did he neglect his duties as a councilor, but was invisible to those who elected him.
During his tenure as deputy leader and Cabinet member for planning Daniel Moylan treated fellow councilors, officers and residents with utter contempt so his manifesto will make unbelievable reading.
It expects fellow councillors to take much on trust, but the question they need ask is whether to trust that he has changed.....
The theme running through his manifesto is the need for a collegiate approach to running the Rotten Borough.
Those who know Daniel Moylan understand consensus politics is anathema to him: dividing and ruling is the name of the Moylan game.
He cites de-cluttering of Kensington High Street as some momentous achievement, yet ignores the fact he was instrumental in the wasteful £28 million construction of Exhibition Rd and the £1 million ‘investment’ in Chelsea Care.
Worse, he takes us all for idiots in thinking we had forgotten his gross abuse of power over the Sloane Square debacle.
Interestingly, he cites the threat from Ukip.
Yes, Ukip is a threat but having Moylan as a divisive leader will play directly into their hands.
Finally, he tells us that resident surveys will tell us what we want.
Well, the Dame can tell him what we want....straightforward, cost effective delivery of services.
You don't need expensive and easily manipulated surveys to understand that.
But then Moylan used to love surveys which always turned out to support his madcap schemes.
Oh, and by the way how about returning the £170 million 'stolen' from taxpayers through overtaxation?
RESIDENT ASSOCIATIONS SHOULD BE WARNING WARD CLLRS OF THE DANGER TO RESIDENTS POSED BY CLLR MOYLAN....HE HAS ALWAYS DESPISED RESIDENTS.
