Never has a council been found quite so wanting.
Many of the present day problems can be traced back to the disastrous fourteen-year reign of greedy Sir Pooter Cockell.
Pooter refuses to allow anyone of any quality to flower; his insecurity was palpable. This is why we have such a lacklustre leadership team; all 'Pooter's Children"!
There was never a question mark over the result: not because of the dimwit's political prescience or skill but because it would take a political earthquake of cataclysmic proportions to bring about a power change. It would be as imbecilic as believing Tower Hamlets might go blue!
K&C residents voted on the basis of the devil you know....hardly a ringing endorsement and when the Grenfell Inquiry results are published the Cabinet members involved in the decision to use cheap cladding will be called to account.
