NEWS FROM THE SALON

The Dame had one of her famous salons the other evening and a gossipy, bitchy time was had by all.

The Dame was told that leader in waiting, Cllr Julie Mills, called that sinister looking friend of developers, Cllr Paul Warrick, into her penthouse office and told him he was terminated.
A sobbing Warrick begged for mercy saying ex members of the Bar should stick together... Julie was having none of it.

It seems Julie has been submitting self-lauding comments to the Hornet using an alias! This is not on....

The Dame's dear friend, Lady Brompton-Grylls, said she spotted about to be ex cllr Tim 'Paddy'Ahern having a chinwag with the late and unlamented Pooter Cockell. What could they be discussing?

And, finally, what's all this about Rocky Feilding Mellen working for young Ritblat?

  1. Someone mentioned Paul Warwick would not be standing again next year, which is great, hopefully they will all follow suit.

    1. Has Paul had a few useful trepanning sessions from Rock's Mum? Vacant extremely dim expression on his boat makes me suspect...hmmmm?

      Delete
  2. Fortunately the Director of Public Prosecutions has said that she will prosecute individuals who may be identified to have been personally responsible for not listening to advance warnings about the Grenfell Tower fire. So maybe young Rock's career with Ritblat will be short-lived.

    Cockle and Ahern have been friends for years. Difficult to understand what they see in each other. Delighted to hear that Warrick has walked the plank. What a load of old rip off he has been.

    They always say that you know a person by their friends. It is entirely understandable and appropriate that disgraced ex Cllr Fielding-Mellen ends up in the same nest as the rodent Ritblat. No doubt Mellen will try to work his contacts in Hornton Street and find new avenues for even bigger brown envelopes. This is a well trodden path (remember disgraced ex Cllr Keith Cunningham and his "basement advice" consultancy?) but the Dame has put her spotlight on the nasty piece of work. Mellen would be well advised to take off for the distant country and keep a low profile. It can only be a mater of time before he is in jail and mum can plan for her weekly visits.

    Cunningham was charging a "success fee" of £10k to get planning approval for basements. I wonder how "cracking" will configure his fee for future Odeons and Newcombe's in the Royal Borough

    1. ex Labour Leader Cllr Cunningham always had an eye to the main chance. He cosied up to the rodent Cockell and got himself a whopping "allowance" as Leader of the Opposition. His fellow Labour Councillors were sensible enough to get shot of him. Just like they got rid of Dent-Coad.

    2. Hasn't Rock hitched up his fave red corduroys and flashed the old school tie and been given safe harbour by Richard Branson and is currently holed up (AKA residing sumptuously) on Necker in the modest 3,600 square foot Fleeing Hippy Aristocrat Suite with nary a thought for the expendable view-spoiling 71. Well that's what a man with a double-barrelled name and a pack of spaniels told me in The Pig and Whistle.

    1. Person Familiar With The Situation4 December 2017 at 09:09

      This is a great scoop for LBC. Hugely important to change the the face and appearance of the Kensington and Chelsea Tories - the polls say so, the Evening Standard says so, Grenfell survivors say so, and Ruth Davidson says so.

      17 decapitations out of 46 sitting Tory Councillors is a good start and a triumph for Chairman Cllr Julie Mills who has been fighting the turkeys every inch of the way. This brilliant ex Mayor and long serving public servant has been turned on by a short sighted rump of the old guard in Hornton Street who are furiously briefing against her. But maybe, just maybe, she will pull it off and the Tories will scrape through with a tiny majority in May 2018. Whichever way it goes, the current strength of 47 Tory Councillors is going to be reduced to around 30 or less after residents speak in the ballot box.

      I have seen the list and the great shame is that the useless Elizabeth Campbell is not on it.

      Delete
    2. Ostrich land of Tories. When the residents spoke at the General Election we kicked out the Tory MP in Kensington. 12k majority went up in smoke. The writing was already on the wall. And then Grenfell happened. Tories dead and buried. Chairman Mills noticed what was going on. Has been trying to build a recovery plan. But turkeys do love Christmas. It is very funny.

      Delete
    3. That was pre-Grenfell residents fed up with mega basements, properties being knocked and general dereliction of duties of officers and councillors.

    Also a couple more whose names I cannot recollect. This leaves behind some of those whose fingers were clearly on the Grenfell tragedy, e.g. Marshall, who refused to listen to residents when he ran the housing scrutiny committee. Perhaps he should also be politely invited to spend more time with his family?

      She is right about Freeman. The best leader of RBK&C they never had.
      And why? Because the dreadful Cockell was deeply envious of Freeman's integrity and intelligence.
      If any good has come out of the Grenfell tragedy it's this. The Masonic like shenanigans that typified the Council over the years is now history.
      The Freeman Suite at the Town Hall should be re-badged the Robert Freeman Suite and all trace of the crooked Nicholas Freeman consigned to the dustbin of history.

    Welcome

    We are looking for people who want to make a strong positive difference to people and communities through direct action here in North Kensington. Work for the Grenfell Team at RBKC.

    Your experience and expertise is important; but your attitude and outlook is more important.

    Do you care deeply about others? Are you adaptable? Then work for us.

    After the Grenfell fire tragedy we have hundreds of things still to do and hundreds of families still to help.

    There is no greater public service challenge in London than:

    Responding to the immediate, practical and intense needs of hundreds of families

    Finding the right homes for families as quickly as we can.

    Helping people find their own personal recovery pathways to a positive future and most importantly ensuring the repair of the frayed fabric of trust between the Council and its communities.

    We are looking for people with expertise in housing; practising support work with people and families experiencing grief and trauma and community outreach work.

    If you work with the Grenfell Team each and every month of work experience will be equivalent to a year’s experience doing “normal” work elsewhere in London.

    If you think you’ve got what it takes, accelerate your personal and professional development by working in the Grenfell Team.

    What are our values?

    We respect everyone and their humanity, dignity and differences

    We work to bring positive outcomes to people and communities

    We believe in people and communities over institutions and policies

    We are personally accountable for helping others

    1. Unfortunately the extremist neo - liberal Conservative ideaology at RBKC has led to this . Burning people to death in their homes whilst sitting on piles of cash is inhuman . Extremism will always get a counter reaction . Time for grown up politics in RBKC , and it is coming in May.

    2. And we know the last person to burn people to death in large numbers - we won that one in '45 . No place for right wing extremists in RBKC . They should all step down - the are all guilty by association .Churchill would have sent 'em to the tower. Traitors the lot of them .
