|New school for the Rock kids!|
At the last planning committee meeting oleaginous chairman, Quentin Marshall, was overheard observing to a colleague, with an unpleasant smirk, "Well, that went rather well, didn't it".
|Is that a Burberry scarf? So common!|
What could Quent, whose other job is greasing up to clients at Weatherbys Private Bank, mean?
At theTown Hall planning meeting to discuss Ladbroke Library Quent decided objectors were a real and present danger to his safety.
So several Town Hall security staff, supported by twelve burly members of the Constabulary, were drafted in to give Quent 'close protection'!
How much did this show of force cost?
Experts suggest several thousand pounds in overtime.
And, for what purpose?
Presumably, to eject objectors objecting to Marshall's crude and boorish attempts to silence them.
When those rather genteel objectors voiced their concerns the bullying and deeply useless Marshall told them they had just a minute to make their point!
What a cavalier way to treat residents paying his 'allowance' of £40,000 plus!
But how different was his attitude to those supporting the scheme-architects and the Director of Libraries.
They were treated with the greatest sycophancy.
Each of the five-man team was given three minutes to make their case.
The Dame also demands to know why no documents outlining this application, and other major applications, were available offline as the Council is legally obliged to do. It might have helped Cllr. Rinker as he engaged in a last minute struggle to find out what was being discussed!
It's pointless Nick Paget-Brown running around the Borough asking those who put him in power to 'talk to him' when the likes of Marshall undermine all his good work by insulting residents.
Marshall's bullying and bombastic manner bode badly for those objecting to other upcoming major applications.
