The Dame is often the butt of cruel and malicious nonsense. Fortunately, she has a thick skin and can bear the 'slings and arrows of outrageous fortune' with equanimity: to quote 'Warwickshire Willie'.
She reproduces this unfair email from one of her cantankerous readers, safe in the knowledge that her other, less censorious readers, will know how unfair the imputations are. The Dame has NO pets!
For a start, the Dame never censors comments, unless, of course, they are defamatory or vulgar.
To suggest Cadogan gets an easy ride is nonsense.
In fact, the poor old thing was severely rebuked for publishing what one reader described as MISARA's over long criticism of the scheme.HERE
What, in the past, the Dame has said about Cadogan is that it is better that a local family own the estate rather than some greedy hedge fund or the Qatari's. She stands by that.
The other day a reader accused the Dame of having her 'pets'. I have to say, I tend to agree.
The Hornet seems rarely to criticise our sainted MP, or indeed, Cllr Dent Coad. As for Cllr Coleridge, she seems to have deleted quite a few comments that criticise him, yet never reacts to unpleasant comments about Cllr Feilding Mellen.
I turn now to Cadogan's plans for Sloane Street.
Why has the Hornet not roundly condemned them?
With the kindest and most respectful regards, dear Dame,
A long term K&C Resident
