This blog is a vehicle for all sections of our community to have their say.

For councillors, it's a useful conduit of information. 
Blocking it achieves nothing. It just makes the Council seems nervous and ill at ease with itself.

The Council, in its wisdom, has decided not to allow the Grenfell Action Group to communicate with councillors: it has been blocked on the Council server.....truly pathetic. 
For goodness's sake, get a grip.


  1. For the Rotten Borough to try to silence dissent in central London in the 21st century will inevitably prove self defeating. The level of council stupidity evidenced by such a move is breathtaking, even by Hornton Street's abysmal standards.

    The Grenfell Action Group represents those subject to the council's long term unofficial policy of social cleansing, particularly in less affluent areas such as north Kensington.

    This has been going on for years. Schools, a library and now a social centre are sold to private schools, so the children of the wealthy incomers do not have to mix with the children of the poor. Queen Victoria remains at the pinnacle of Empire!

    Stories abound of of the deliberate running down and emptying of local social housing. Developers then acquire the land for "market" priced empty flats, while the former residents are decanted to Essex or further afield.

    The recent uproar over the heavy handed behaviour of the Westway Trust is another aspect of the council sponsored move to rid K & C of its remaining low income residents. In this case, the project has been been so mishandled, that rather than the dispossessed departing in silence, they have been roused to fight back in some considerable strength.

    The policy is for RBKC councillors and their developer friends to turn north Ken into Chelsea, quietly. It's too late for that now. So unutterably stupid RBKC tries to silence resident anger. The council may as well try to hold back the sea.

  2. What a sad, drab world our Council inhabits.
    There is nothing remotely threatening about the Grenfell Action Group blog and the "Mock the Opera" march and demo last summer was an absolute cracker.
    Time RBKC twinned up with North Korea.

  3. We can still remember when the Dame suffered/enjoyed the same fate at the hands of RBKC. We consider it an honour to be numbered in the same esteemed company and we can't help but wonder why they fear so much the public lobbying and criticism that is the stock in trade of both the Hornet's Nest and the Grenfell Action Group blogs. If they're so powerful and untouchable why do they fear our scribblings so much?

    RBK&C thinks it can close people down by ignoring them, giving them short shrift or by blocking e-mail addresses. The arrogance of the so called Tory elite is breathtaking. One day there will be a day of reckoning in K&C.

    Retired magistrate describes that shower in Hornton Street as a "Tory elite." They are the fag end of the Tory Party.

    1. From fag end to sleaze9 December 2015 at 08:02

      Since Joan Hanham stopped serving the Council, RBKC has become the sleazy, unpleasant and unacceptable face of capitalism.
