Yesterday, the Dame had to visit the Customer Service Centre at the Town Hall.
She passed the Freeman Suite named after a former leader, the saturnine and corrupt, Nicholas Freeman.
The next leader should remove all trace of this man; a disgrace to the Royal Borough.
Anyway, the Dame was there to renew her resident parking permit.
You can see her below with the Armstrong Siddeley.
What struck the Dame was the helpfulness and commitment of the junior and mid-ranking staff. Councillors and senior officers should remember they are supposed to be setting an example.
What these junior and mid/ranking staff must think of those above them does not bear thinking.
This is why the next leader must be someone of stature and probity.
