One of the stupidest and most incompetent of local authority leaders was Sir Pooter Cockell. 

K&C council leadership is as dire as it is because Pooter would never appoint anyone whose intelligence would show him up as a dimwit, hence: rule by the mediocre.

Somehow, greasy little Pooter has managed to distance himself from Grenfell. Typical ill-educated little ex-fag salesman.
How on earth did he wangle this job?

City & Financial Global is delighted to announce that the 15th annual edition of its 'UK Infrastructure Policy & Investment Summit' will take place in London on Wednesday 28th March 2018.

We are delighted that Robert Jenrick MP, Exchequer Secretary, HM Treasury, has kindly agreed to give the keynote address.

· The future of private finance in infrastructure post-Carillion

· Labour's plans for PFI projects and the use of private finance
· Prospects for the UK’s major project pipeline
· Evolving models for private sector involvement in Scottish infrastructure
· The latest developments in infrastructure financing and investment
· Key technologies that are transforming infrastructure
· Housing delivery: the need for fundamental answers to fundamental questions

  1. What gravitas can be ascribed to 'City & Financial Global'? Yet another think tank? Any enlightenment would be appreciated.
    Having Pooter a speaker is nothing but the pits, scrapings of the bottom or swamp.

  2. Your Health and Safety interests suggest you need to be aware that PooteR remains in the PR business.
    Cratus, Executive Chairman. 'Our World is Local’
    Cratus is contracted by the landowner and developer of the Forum Holiday Inn site, currently in pre-Application discussion with Planning Department (a controversial project and a very large elephant in any RBKC room).
    Cratus’s mission statement includes ".. our primary goal is to help clients navigate the process to secure results.."
    They would say that, wouldn’t they.
    Our World is, indeed, Local.

  3. Yet again, jobs for the boys! Or this particular boy. Self-serving incompetence is an overly flattering description.

    When will the powers that be learn?

  4. Old Boy Network !

  5. He was at a place called Frensham Heights now closed down. Hardly Eton!
    In fact, Evelyn Waugh could have based Llangollen (sic) Towers on it.

  6. Wasn't it closed because of abuse? If he endured this then he should be shown some sympathy.

  7. yet again true colours are flooding through. "ex-fag" - homophobia partnering anti-antisemitism in the Labour party!
