A PLAGUE ON ALL THEIR HOUSES

Dear Dame,

In all the years as a resident of K&C I have never felt myself to be so much a victim of representational deficit as I do now.

Let me explain myself...

·   We have a council mainly comprising of councillors whose arrogance towards those they represent beggar’s belief. There are exceptions Judith Blakeman and Robert Freeman being two.
·   An MP for Kensington whose only interest seems to be residents in the north of the Borough and tweeting furiously instead of doing a ‘proper job’
·   And an MP for Chelsea and Fulham who seem to think he represents Fulham alone


The Hornet seems to be the only campaigning medium fighting for all of us.
Without it we would never know what was going on.

Emma Dent Coad, when elected, said she was going to represent the entirety of the Borough.
This has turned out to be patent nonsense and a lie. 
I now hear she plans to remain a councillor; the very criticism she levelled at Mrs. Borwick.
She has mercilessly used the Grenfell tragedy as a political platform for her ultra extremist views.

Greg Hands takes no interest in Chelsea issues. 
I happen to live close to the threatened Sutton Estate. 
Has he got involved?
No, he’s far too self-important running around saying, “ I am in the government” !
Come on Mr Hands, commerce is being killed in Chelsea as small shopkeepers struggle to pay business rates, now nearly 40% of rental value and you do nothing.
I suppose you feel there’s no electoral dividend in helping the economic backbone of this country? 
The boat owners at Chelsea are being threatened with eviction and you do nothing.

And do we hear from ‘Hands Off Hands” on Crossrail or Thamesbrook?
Not a murmur.
I hear many moans that getting in touch with self-important Hands can result in a wait of months....if one ever hears back at all. One wonders what the point of the man is!

The same with Dent Coad.

And now I read that this motor mouth, Shaun Bailey is being lined up for Kensington.


Residents deserve better than this. It is just not good enough.

Yours faithfully

Michael Pettifer

  1. PS. When the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham was run by the Labour Party Greg Hands was quick to make political capital out of what they were doing. Similarly, Emma Dent Coad MP is, according to Michael Pettier, using the Grenfell Tragedy as a political platform.

    The morality of Labour and Tory politicians sickens me.

    1. It is hard to believe that a Tory MP did not want to expose TMO corruption when a responsible person went to him with evidence of KCTMO corruption

  2. I went to see Greg Hands MP at his surgery shortly after his election to the newly created constituency of Chelsea and Fulham in 2010. I presented him with details of corruption at the Kensington and Chelsea TMO. I asked him if he would take the matter to the Minister for Local Government and Communities so that issues could be fully investigated. He refused to do so point blank without providing any explanation. He suggested that WE should both go and see Councillor Coleridge about the situation. I declined to do so. I no longer live in Chelsea and Fulham and am no longer represented by Greg Hands and no longer have the TMO managing my housing.

      Borwick was a first class MP. Just deluded over BREXIT and unwise to flaunt her belief in a 75% "remain" constituency

    2. MP's vote with their conscience not the electorate. Emma Dent Coad tries to be radical but toes the line after she has been indulged.

      Victoria Borwick was marvellous!

      Delete
    3. Victoria is still marvellous. Sadly no longer an MP she continues quietly to help some of the most deprived and vulnerable members of our community. When I see some of our continuing councillors I realise just what a good public servant we have lost and I hope she will be back.

    5. Multi-millionaire Borwick was just like any other MP for Kensington & Chelsea. Poor! She did very little look at Odeon Kensington and Earls Court. She did nothing.

      Like Sadiq Khan she loves being in front of the camera photographed.

      Antiques lot saw more action from her then we did.

      Delete
    6. Victoria Borwick is a wonderful human being 17.04.

      Have you forgotten the way in which she helped the late Major Vickers who was being turned out of his home by a greedy property developer- a tenancy that he had held since the 1940's. I hear that she took food round to him in his last few days to make sure that he had a decent meal.

      Not much political impact in that so Emma would not be up for it.

      Delete
    7. She helps greedy developers by sitting on her hands, keeping quiet like Greg Hands.

      Either she did take food or she she didn't, facts first not hearsay. Many people helped Major Vickers it was the Dame bringing this to readers attention that applied the pressure.

      If Borwick worked against greedy developers why is Earls Court and Odeon at ground zero?

    8. Dear Dame,

    10. I have written several times to Greg Hands. He always replies, and intelligently. My only problem with him is on Brexit where I regard his position as treachery and for that alone I will not vote for him again.

    1. Bruno de Florence,

      I have watched Dent Coad's lack lustre performance on Parliament Live through the link that you provided. She tries her usual gutter tactics to score a cheap political point. The fascist, racist, official that she refers to as being employed by Tory Hammersmith and Fulham Council ("before it returned to Labour Control in 2014") was employed by the Council over three decades. He applied for his first post at the Council under a LABOUR ADMINISTRATION in the late 1980's and continued to work there over three decades. It seems that a LABOUR COUNCIL appointed this person and the LABOUR COUNCIL was not very good at identifying potential employees who play fascist, racist sex games.

      Dent Coad forgot to mention the practical economics of LBHF under LABOUR. Under Labour, LBHF was paying £ 7 million every year in interest to service irresponsible borrowings. That is why it went Tory for eight years so that the deficit could be reduced and the correct number of Home Helps, School Teachers and Dinner Ladies could be employed.

      Emma Dent Coad MP has the effrontery to complain that the former Director of Homelessness at Hammersmith and Fulham Council described Council estates that are going to demolished, "ghettos."

      The same self-righteous, self-possessed woman called Shaun Bailey "Ghetto Boy."

      Twasn't it always thus? Those on the political left who are unable to compete in market economy or hold down a job or even think about getting up in the morning and going out to work can make a lifestyle choice to bum off the state and be kept by us fools who work for a living.

      Karl Marx said such behaviour was "parasitism." Funnily enough Engels was

    But well said Michael, couldn't have put it better myself; too much verbal promises not enough action on those promises.

    1. 16.58 Do you mean time for Kensington and Chelsea to become "one" parliamentary constituency. It already is "one borough." If that happened it turn the constituency in to the safest Tory seat in the country just like it was when Nicholas Scott was Tory MP for twenty years up until 1997. So it would be goodbye to Dent Coad; not that I would complain about seeing the back of her.

      Delete
    2. Conservatives think a Kensington Chelsea constituency would be a safe seat?

      Most tory voters have sold off their houses and left Kensington and Chelsea with whats left doubt it would be a blue seat. Conservatives have alienated their voters.

      Look at what has happened, even before the Grenfell fire Conservatives lost by 20 votes. In a space of a year and a half Borwick lost 2,000 voters and a majority of 8,000.

      Delete
    3. All the Tories have flogged their houses to overseas investors and moved out the borough. The super aggressive private housing policy is in course to make Chelsea a ghost town.

  8. Over the years, a number of Labour Councillors in London have made a life style choice not to go out to work. Instead of working, they sit on the Council claiming allowances for doing so. I have heard that some of these Councillors make claims for Housing Benefit to help pay their rent and Council Tax Benefit to help pay their Council Tax. Most of us pay our rent and Council Tax out of our wages. We all know that it does not work if everyone is on means-tested benefits. Does anyone know if EDC got any help to pay her Council Tax at any period during her service as a Councillor ?

    ReplyDelete
  9. The last Labour councillor in RBKC to be living on benefits was Bob Pope, who died a long time ago - and he did not receive an allowance because he was on benefits.

    ReplyDelete
  10. 22.33 Councillors can draw Councillors' Allowances and still claim Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit/ Council Tax Reduction on grounds that their income is deficient to meet their liability for rent and Council Tax. Bob Pope's decision not to claim allowances arose because he was better off on Social Security benefits.

    Councillor's Allowance topped up with Council Tax Benefit is not the same as "living on benefits."

    2. It is very right wing actually. Whoever it is who tells that the last Labour Councillor who "lived on benefits" was Mr Pope is using that term to avoid answering the question about EDC having her income from a source other than benefits topped up with help to pay her Council Tax. It is always best to go out and work.

      Delete
    3. I reckon that she got help with paying her Council Tax.

  12. If EDC never got any help to pay her Council Tax whilst serving as a Councillor, she would have informed the Dame of this fact; no doubt outraged at the suggestion. David Cameron, Boris Johnson, Ken Livingstone, Jenny Jones, and Jeremy Corbyn have in the past put their tax affairs before the general public,(tax affairs because none of them were on any means tested benefits )perhaps EDC should follow suit about her money business.

    1. People should get their priorities straight. People should get a job unless they are unemployable or infirm and pay their own way without expecting their neighbours to pay tax to keep them. Going to work to earn your own money comes before doing community work and getting payments from the council or taxpayer.

    7. Emma Dent Coad reminds me of the late Theresa Gorman, former Tory MP for Billericay. Gorman was a reactionary loud mouth who shot from the hip and stabbed herself in the foot. Dent Coad's outburst about Shaun Bailey with her illustration of Bailey hanging on a gallows was on par with Gorman saying, "What is wrong with telling unemployed Asians to get a job in a curry house in Brick Lane."

    Theresa Gorman was a very inadequate politician just like Emma Dent Coad MP.

    I grew up in South East London and went to a very rough ILEA comprehensive school. Theresa Gorman taught me science and was fantastic. According to the headmistress of my primary school I was a "no hoper who would achieve nothing." Thanks to Mrs Gorman, I did well in science and went on to do a science degree at Imperial College. Theresa Gorman was an excellent schoolteacher but a cr*p politician. Emma Dent Coad seems to be cr*pa at politics too.

  16. The choice is Emma's10 March 2018 at 07:00

    People find Emma Dent Coad's behaviour unpleasant and objectionable. In the few months that she has been an MP, there is much to criticise. Instead of condemning those who have passed comment about our nasty, mean-minded MP, why not defend her. The reason you are not defending her is because you cannot defend her atrocious conduct. She is entitled to be left wing but she is not entitled to be insulting and unpleasant. If Emma Dent Coad or her supporters are upset by what people are saying then she could apologise and change her bad behaviour. She should act in a manner that is businesslike and consistent with that of a serious politician or she should give up politics forever. If Michael Portillo, Malcolm Rifkind or Victoria Borwick behaved like Emma people would have complained and Emma would have been in the front of the queue. Emma Dent Coad has no one but herself to blame. She has brought it on herself.

    18.45 "Trolling" as you put it is an offensive activity. No one has "trolled" Emma Dent Coad MP on the Hornet. They have expressed concerns about the vicious, pernicious, and insidious way that Emma Dent Coad goes about making points. It is entirely acceptable to admonish or heckle an MP despite what you seem to think.
