|A ROYAL BOROUGH GEM|
The Dame recently paid a couple of visits:one to have her poor old ticker checked(bad luck, Pooter...it's in fine fettle) and it filled her with real pride.
The staff and their skills are second to none, yet even this piece of medical magnificence lacks certain vital medical equipment due to lack of money.
So how can it be that the thick end of £27 million can be spent on a mere road, yet Chelsea & Westminster has to rely on the Friends of the hospital(excellent local charity) to fund raise.
In the picture below you can see what happens when a leader looks to burnish his image with multi million pound idiocy.
Anyone who has been down Exhibition Rd will see that it's filthy and dangerous.
Localism is meant to be a way of devolving decisions on major local spending to residents.
But localism can only ever work if residents have control over how their money is spent. Left to councillors.... waste follows....
That applies as much to the £27 million Exhibition Rd, as the £100 million Holland Park School or the £1 million a year Opera Holland Park Opera.
Were residents given the option they would have scrapped Exhibition Rd saving £27 million and enforced the Government limit on new schools of £33 million, saving nearly £60 million on Holland Park School.
And OHP would have been told to find its own funding and stop leeching off the taxpayer.
The only way localism will work is by pushing councillors out of the way and letting local people decide...
