Not very many Presidents of the Oxford Union in the K&C Tories. Or Chairmen of the Bow Group. Cllr Moylan did both. Elected by his peers. A record (and person) to be admired.
Well, if so smart how come he has never managed to become leader of a crappy little local council? Not much to be admired there!
Stupid Councillors elected Cockell by one vote instead of Moylan. Look at what happened.
Thank God the only good thing I ever did was to stop the lunatic Moylan from becoming leader. Anyway, if he had been any good he would have won with an overwhelming majority...
and seems to have been fired from all the BJ appointed jobs he was given
The Mayor needed a hit man for some impossible tasks. Can you imagine a more effective candidate than Moylan? The other possibilities were winnies.
talk about dredging up rationales to justify failure.......!
What has Moylan achieved in the last 35 years? Not a lot. He had the potential, but his many personal failings have reduced his career to ashes. No one can stand him.
The magnificent Exhibition Road, for example. A lasting tribute to a man of vision, taste and determination.
So, Daniel, you claim a dirty, oil stained mess of a road as a success.It's lethal to pedestrians; cost £27 million with stone imported from-of all places China- and costs £300k a year to keep clean
Agree with 9.56's comments on Exhibition Rd, but cleaning at £5,770 a week is gross overcharging. For decades the RBKC has hosted a vast waste management racket. Residents pay twice the market rate the service, enabling 1000s of K & C businesses to pay nothing. Individually it's not much money, but everyone pays twice on a 16 year contract. H & F and WCC etc have the same "problem." It follows that the tendering process was - "flawed." Think about it.
Apologies to the Dame for changing the subject. Commercial waste contracts are compulsory for businesses. First Mile, one of the few "alternative" waste firms working in RBKC, has 13,000 commercial contracts, across the whole of London. RBKC alone has 12,500 businesses (ONS). First Mile can only be contracted to about 500 of them. Yet RBKC and its contractors claim their 3,800 business contracts equal 70% of the market. Up to 8,700 RBKC businesses have no waste contracts. A few firms pay privately or create no waste, but the remaining 6,000 or so "uncontracted" firms are subsidised by residents. This is unlawful in terms of several sets of legislation.
It needs a person like Moylan to sort out rackets like waste collection in the Royal Borough
He's had plenty of opportunity over the last 10 years. Somehow he never quite got round to it.
So cute - and those elocution lessons have clearly worked! Not a hint of Brummie.
Supporter of Moylan is very wrong about Moylan and the Bow Group. Amongst all the other consultations he's messed up and elections he's failed in-he couldn't even beat Ian Donaldson in the election for Bow Group Chairman....
Rubbish. Donaldson was never a Bow Group Chairman
It's Bow Grouper. Cllr Palmer....what the hell is a gropper? Andyes, you ignorant clown, Donaldson was a chairman
