"It's time for the Government to immediately install Commissioners to run RBKC. It's clearly beyond running itself. No Leader or Deputy Leader and no Chief Executive. It's not a time for the usual RBKC round of musical chairs, where one peculiar specimen of manhood changes places with another. Horton Street's stench of rottenness has at last exploded into the street. Talking of rotten. OMG Moylan is now on Channel 4 doing his sanctimonious best to ensure takes over the Council. He should get an Oscar. Moylan as Leader of the Rotten Borough would be the worst possible result for both the survivors of Grenfell and for the rest of us. He's the ultimate self-serving creep. Anyone but Moylan."
Residents of Kensington & Chelsea...you have endured enough.
The council tax paying resident should be sending a strong message about who they want to repair the self-inflicted damage.
Every past Cabinet member bears collective responsibility and that includes Cllr Moylan who, for many years, was a powerful force in the Council and Cabinet.
His crocodile tears fool no one.
He hold residents in complete contempt. As he has so often said, " we know best'.
Unless the Council is put into Special Measures you, the resident, will have little opportunity to influence how the council reforms itself.
This is the moment for residents to look at the composition of the Majority Group and decide who is the best of the bunch.
The names being bandied about are anathema to those with any intelligence.
Even the utterly useless Elizabeth Campbell is putting herself forward, despite being 100% responsible for the children's transport fiasco!
Is she really someone residents want?
This Council needs a leader who can work successfully with the minority parties and represent all residents.
Daniel Moylan despises residents and has views on the EU that make Nigel Farage seem like a Europhile.
Is he really the right man to man to restore the confidence of residents?
Above and beyond a leader of probity this council needs a first class Chief Executive. It also needs to revert to the Committee System: the Cabinet system is a disaster.
So come on, dear Hornet readers...who do you want to lead our council?
