CLEAN OUT THE AUGEAN STABLES....GET RID OF ROBERT BLACK AND CLLR CONDON-SIMMONDS

Two topics generate huge volumes of viewings and comment on the Hornet

They are both interconnected....Cllr Condon-Simmonds and the KCTMO.

The performance of both casts great dark shadows over the Council.

It is time Robert Black was replaced at the TMO and Cllr Condon-Simmonds forced to retire.

  1. It speaks volumes. Mention Simmons or Black in a Hornet Blog and residents let fly with information about what a catastrophe these two are.

    The Chairman of the Board (eg Leader Paget-Brown) needs to take note and take action. It is what Chairmen re for.

    2. "Council complaints procedure has no interest whatsoever about customer"

      If you want to find out what other people are doing, read something like http://www.name-n-shame.co.uk/local_government.html

      Check for yourself but the above says that the local authorities cannot bring libel actions. Good to know though I would only post something that is true rather than spread rumours because you feel spiteful towards the Council.

  2. My neighbour is talking about renting a room for a few hours at The Worlds End Theatre, inviting along all RBKC residents who would like to get involved to meet there and discuss a plan going forward, talking about getting signatures for an EGM, attendance at the AGM etc to make a KCTMO change happen.

    Would anyone come along?

    1. Nobody will contact you. I've already tried and received no emails. This blog is where people just come to moan. I am even doubting to the point, if this blog is paid by the HQ, pretending to be on the side of residents.

      If you ever organise a meeting, beware of rats and roaches sent from the HQ.

  3. Oh yes. Hundreds.

  4. Maighread Simmons is on the TMO board. When she doesn't succeed in putting pressure pressure on RBKC officers she then bullies TMO officers.

  5. She demands free parking for her special friends. If officers refuse she shouts at them at the local TMO office.

  6. I heard that the TMO had to change the way visitors parking permits are managed to stop her bullying local officers into giving her visitors parking permits for her special friends.

    1. Not corruption in the grand sense. Just a small minded person with a little power who is abusing her position for personal gain. The world is full of these rodents. They need to be stamped out.

    2. Maighread is an insignificant person who would only find recognition in the Kensington and Chelsea TMO like all of its other ne'er do wells.

  9. This blog unifies residents against those who abuse their positions at the cost of the public purse.

  10. The TMO is extremely powerful.

    It manages 153 social housing estates with tens of thousands of constituents. This makes for a dangerous cocktail for a corrupt councillor on the board.

    1. Extremely powerful 07:52?
      That's because you give your power away to them.
      Without our support, they are nothing.
      They do what they like regardless of the law (corruption). No compliance is the way to go.

  11. EXTERNAL INVESTIGATION !!!!!

  12. If the council was serious about ensuring that the TMO serves its residents effectively, it would not keep appointing Cllr Simmonds to the TMO Board. It would appoint someone prepared to challenge and act as a critical friend to the TMO. Cllr Simmonds does not do this; she gets drunk at TMO events, visits senior officers for social events in their own homes and, as stated above, gets favours for her friends. The TMO Board have their heads in the sand. For example, the review of events at Grenfell Tower just looked at the paperwork in the TMO office and found that it was all in order. The Board team reviewing matters – which included Cllr Simmonds – did not speak to a single resident of the Tower to gauge the resident experience of the refurbishment programme and the long promised resident survey has vanished. The TMO’s response to all criticism now is aggressive/defensive yet the sheer scale of concerns must alert them to the fact that something is going badly wrong. The poor service from Keepmoat alone is a classic example.

    1. Maddison, Jevans and Condon Simmonds should bow out gracefully over the way that they, the TMO, treated Grenfall Tower people.

    I heard that Cllr Blakeman was not allowed to speak at the council committee that got the Grenfell Tower report. So the councillor most closely involved with residents was gagged. Isn’t that censorship? Is the council now running a totalitarian state to protect the TMO?

  14. Councillor Simmons encourages the promotion of officers who undertake special favours for her "special friends". The TMO gardening man comes to mind. Dominic is very helpful.

    1. and very good to an old woman, close to Simmonds, who won a prize for gardening when she didn't have a garden. She only had a flower pot.

  15. Residents who complain or hold the TMO accountable are systematically are accused falsely, have their services witheld and are threatened.

    ReplyDelete
  16. This is the absolute truth.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The TMO sends threats of blocking all emails to residents who hold them accountable !

    ReplyDelete
  18. I thought that was the purpose of residents associations...

    TO HOLD SERVICE PROVIDERS ACCOUNTABLE !

  19. What we should do in Chelsea Riverside is not vote for Councillor Simmonds at the next Council election.

    That would weaken her position as a Councillor on the TMO board.

    ReplyDelete
  20. All that she is interested in is her position as Councillor.

    The priviledge this position gives her and the social standing she believes she has as a result.

    She uses the TMO resources and staff to maintain her position as Councillor.

  33. The gardening man takes instructions from our lovely councillor.

    He is very helpful.

  34. Councillor Simmons makes sure that this funding is directed to people or estates that vote for her.

    Any community group that challenges this finds that funding and services are withdrawn.

    Well done to everyone who has dished the dirt on Maighread.
