The Dame has an apology to make to our admirable Chief Executive, Nicholas Holgate.
In a recent piece she castigated the Council for giving Charlie Saatchi £20,000.
This, on top of the £50,000 given in 2009.
The decision to hand over another chunk of money to the multi millionaire ad man and art dealer had nothing to do with Mr Holgate and all to do with our very odd Finance chairman....cat loving singleton, Warwick Lightfoot.
Sophisticates who know Charlie Saatchi understand his gallery's prime purpose is to promote his collection and boost the profile of young artists he collects.
But, being an economist, such business acumen escapes Lightfoot.
The Dame,pottering in a local charity shop, came across a remaindered book by Lightfoot.
The title claimed 'we have no money'.....
That could have something to do with the fact that Lightfoot gives it away to one of Britain's richest man!
Other ways Lighfoot found to ensure we have no money was to spend £100million on a school that should have cost £34million...Exhibition Rd costing £28million...Chelsea Care-a million down the drain and a million a year on Opera Holland Park.
So we don't need a tome from Lightfoot to explain the obvious!
