She has just heard that Ebony Riding Club has had its beady and greedy eyes on Sarah Turvey's stables for many months.
A year ago Ebony paid a visit surreptitiously 'casing the joint' before reporting back to McConville that her site would suit them 'just nicely'!
So the Dame took a look at the powerful patrons behind Ebony and discovered that the Duchess of Cornwall was one patron and Val Shawcross another.
Now Val is a member of the London Assembly. The Dame expects every reader to email Val to express their disgust that her charity could collude in the destruction of Sarah's Stable. You can email her email@example.com

I am disgusted and appalled by the actions of the Westway Development Trust towards Sarah Tuvey and her stables.
I cannot believe the decision not to renew her lease simply because of the Trust's CEO's bloody mindedness, and/or that of her advisors.
Angela McConville is the new CEO of this so called charity and may be unaware of all the facts that resulted in her poor decision.
I have been involved with the stables for some 8 years and it has been a haven for some of the most deprived, the disabled and the local community in West London.
Despite the odds, Ms Tuvey has transformed this site into wonderful place in the centre of London with her animals allowing many who could only dream of relating with the horses and learning to ride in an urban environment. The delight and joy on the young faces speak volumes. Has anyone at the Trust even bothered to visit the stables?
This has taken years of hard work, perseverance and dedication to get this far, why would anyone with a heart not allow Ms Tuvey to carry on the good work.
Ms McConville states the option to exercise the renewal of the lease between 13 Sept 2012 and 21 May 2014 is incorrect.
As far as I am aware the final draft was only signed towards the end of September. I even sent an email to the lawyers who were making changes to the final document dated 12 September 2012.
In any event if the Trust's intensions were honourable, could they not have sent a reminder to Ms Tuvey as promptly as they did with the notice under the Landlord and Tenant Act? Notice was sent out on the 22nd May 2014 precisely a day after the deadline!!
I also wish to state that in all my dealings and subsequent conversations with the management team of the Trust none said that the lease would not be renewed.
I have attended meetings and even then the outgoing CEO assured me that there would be stables as part of the regeneration programme.
I was even told that the lease offers greater protection for the lessee etc. etc. and that the Trust were always willing to work with Ms Tuvey going forward.
My understanding too was the trust had been tardy in reviewing and renewing the present lease. It took months to get an initial response simply to agree the heads of terms.
Then again months to submit the requested documents to the lawyers.
Could Ms Conville clarify whether the scrapyard merchants, garages and music studio all around the area would be denied renewal of their leases or could stay in the area?
Could she also clarify when this regeneration would take place as the supplementary planning does require stables and arena.
Lastly she maintains there is not a viable future in the current location.
Well, of course, there will not be as the land is being regenerated and the stables relocated.
Will the trust fund the relocation costs?
As time is short should there not be proposals in place if you seriously have the intension to help retain the wonderful services of Ms Tuvey's yard?
I personally have a pony there for children and adults to ride where do you suggest I liver him?
It has been home to him for over 5 years.
I am hoping that you would reconsider your decision. I appeal to your better nature.
The stables will work and I hope the trust will give it the opportunity to do so.
I fully agree with Paula's take on this.
