|NICK IN GLASS HOUSE|
In his letter Paget-Brown attempts to suggest that Mrs Thatcher's moral Methodism would have deplored the greed and amorality of the banking fraternity-as if Methodists had some sort of exclusivity on morality!
Nick, anyone who knew Margaret Thatcher would tell you that she would have equally deplored the amorality of those in power at Kensington and Chelsea.
She would have been shocked to find you and colleagues pay yourselves exorbitant Special Responsibility Allowances: that you condone a leader who, for years, has refused to give up his £70,000 a year allowance and has used the taxpayer to fund an extravagant jet set life style.
That you bought a £100,000 Bentley...the list goes on...
She, who so admired thrift, would have been horrified to see £23 million spent on a road no one wanted, using the product of Chinese forced labour. She would have been shocked by the inept loss making investment in Chelsea Care and the £100 million Holland Park School providing not one extra place!
No, Nick....Lady Thatcher would have heartily disapproved of the cynical, greedy and self interested councillors who have made a mockery of democracy in the Royal Borough...not just the amorality of bankers.
