Feel pity for the residents of Queen's Gate....

They are blessed with a couple of very strange characters....

The first, Cllr Matthew Roundell Palmer was about to lose his seat in St Charles ward so begged then leader, Cllr Sir Pooter Cockell, to let him do a 'chicken run' to the safe seat in Queen's Gate.
Palmer is known for the the creation of a website called Council Skills. Sadly, it closed down being so full of spelling and grammatical errors that users were left mystified.
They were also shocked by Council Skills links to sex sites which seemed to have no relevance to training councillors.....
The picture below shows Matthew holding a petition. Sadly, the petition got the names of Tesco and Sainsburys muddled so all 2,000 hard sought for signatures were declared invalid. You can read all about it HERE!

Matthew, whose idiosyncratic spelling and grammar is a source of much giggling in the Member's Room was described by the ghastly 'Lord' Sugar as a 'twot'!
Matthew likes to check his share portfolio in vital council debates!

Matthew's co-councillor is the celebrated Cllr Daniel Moylan.
Danny is known for his ability to amass a fortune in taxpayer funded allowances.
At one point his income from allowances well exceeded £160,000 a year!
No wonder he is a rare sighting in Queen's Gate....far too busy to waste time on the hoi polloi of the ward.

Daniel has such a cut glass accent that even Prince Charles said, "he makes me feel very common".
However, there is a major difference between the two....Danny has a brain...Matthew does not.


  1. While one is unable to find anything else to his credit, the Dame's last comment indicates that Matthew Palmer is the less dangerous of the pair.

  2. For someone with no brain Palmer has done well to win a once safe labour seat twice.

    1. You don't need to win council must be brainless to think so

  3. So why did he do the chicken run to Queen's Gate? Had his "Labour" residents finally found him out?

    1. No the Labour party knew they could not get him out of a ward they thought was "theirs" so they asked the boundary commission to break the ward up.

    2. Only a complete fool would think that the Labour Party - or any other political party - could influence the work of the Boundary Commission.

  4. Is this the same Mathew Palmer who made private telephone calls to Australia (and ran up a huge bill) at the Conservative Association Office? And was found out and forced to repay?

    1. Unlike Pooter who entertained friends to dinner at the Four Seasons restaurant in New York on a Saturday night and was found out after he charged up the $400 bill to K&C tax payers. But Pooter was a VIP so he was not forced to repay.

  5. This is the same Cllr Moylan who ran up a £3k bill with DHL to deliver Council Papers to his holiday home in Thailand. It is so important to be IMPORTANT!

  6. Where is the story about Mr D and the violence and photos ?
