Nothing appeals to the Dame more than outright sycophancy.
This resident is now a fave of the old thing...
We need to know why £30 million of our money was provided to this sports centre.
Can someone on the Council help out please?

Your Dameness,

As a resident of N Kensington I find your information invaluable and often amusing . Thank you.

I thought you might perhaps be faintly interested in this. I eagerly awaited the opening of the state-of-the-art health centre in Silchester road. I knew that the council had spent something like £30 million on the project -and I do not know if this even includes the land. 

When I went there, to join up hoping to make use of the pool, gym and classes, I discovered that this would require something like £80 a month. 
I remonstrated that I was a resident and I felt but It was extraordinary their monthly cost for full facilities should be in line with the Virgin sports club round the corner.

On a personal level as a resident of North Kensington I'm in a terrible quandary. I have the privilege of casting a vote that might matter . I've never voted Conservative and  on a political level I disliked Rifkind, and I like what I know of Abouharb, but I think the Cameron’s gov has done well with the appalling mess they were left with and I think that Millband’s gov may actually destabilise the country .   

What I know, is that I don't know. I don't want to throw away my vote, I don't know where to find real information and not to be blown this way and that by advertising speak….any advice ?

best wishes

  1. In this exceptionally corrupt area of London, vote locally for the rights of every resident, regardless of income.

    Dear Resident
    Of course you have to pay £80 per month to use the facilities since you are rated a pleb. They would be free for life if you were a Windsor parading as a Cambridge.

    So reincarnate yourself as a Royal and all will be well.

    Note to Editors. Lifetime Membership of the Sports facilities for the Cambridge family is worth £160k. An outrage that tax payers money should be frittered in this way. Kate Middleton Cambridge should have been given a woolly teddy for young George with a K&C logo as a souvenir of the visit (cost to tax payers, £20) and not a £160k freebie. These people are housed and watered at public expense. They do not need more.

  3. Vote UKIP darling

    I am a superior person and was shocked to find that when I visited the new swimming pool there is only a general changing area. For a new facility I would have expected Upper Class facilities that I could use and avoid the rabble. Of course I would be very happy to pay a premium for such facilities

    The whole project cost £28 million. £26 million for the school and £2 million for the Sports Centre. Good value when you consider that the new Holland Park School cost £100 million.
