BAIL OUT OF BAILEY


No, opportunist
We all have those horrid dreams. 
We wake up in a cold sweat thinking we have committed some awful crime followed by the sheer relief of knowing it never happened.



The Dame had a dream like that the other day. She dreamed that motormouth, Shaun Bailey, had somehow become mayor of this truly global city.


Bailey is a man of gimmicks. 
His latest is to spend millions handing out burglar alarms to over 65's as if the rest of London's population is immune from the infection of home invasions.
The millions he proposes to spend are better deployed on replacing the 'on the streets' police removed whilst he was 'advising' Cameron on crime!
The Dame has had two experiences of Bailey...once over a sandwich when he droned on for an hour without once stopping to ask a question....the other, more recently, when she emailed him thrice in his role as an Assembly Member.
This self-important fellow had not the manners to reply. 
When she raised this with a colleague of his he was told, "Shaun never replies to anyone unless he feels they will be useful."
The great surprise is that Rory Stewart has never challenged Bailey to a public debate. 
The Dame holds no particular brief for Stewart but he does seem to want to genuinely engage with Londoners rather than talk at them.
Bailey seems to be looking for the next opportunity to promote himself 

TIME TO COME CLEAN ABOUT RUBBISH

A resident and good friend sent the old Dame this interesting photo of the refuse team collecting rubbish.
We are constantly told by the council that they are helping to save the planet by separating out recyclable rubbish from nonrecyclable.

All mixed up
This picture shows both lots being massed together and presumably going off to some landfill site.

Are we all wasting time and energy separating out household rubbish? Seems so, sadly

KENSINGTON SOCIETY BACK BROMPTON HOSPITAL


Dear Members,

I am emailing to let you know that we have just started a petition to 'Save our Brompton Hospital'.

The trustees of the Kensington Society has endorsed this action and agreed we should send it to you.

Some of you may already know that the Royal Brompton and Harefield hospital have recently announced they will be closing their Chelsea site to move south of the river READ HERE

We oppose this move, and will be mounting a very strong campaign to stop the move – if you agree, please do sign the petition HERE

THE POLICE ALLOW FLAGRANT LAWLESSNESS

What possible excuse can the police have for allowing supercar drivers to take over one of this global city's main retail streets causing fear and danger in the process? 


For several hours drivers of supercars used Sloane Street as a racetrack...









Normal citizens would end up with being charged with dangerous or reckless driving but somehow the police treat these drivers as a protected species.
It is wrong.

THIS IS NORTH KENSINGTON PATS RBK&C ON THE BACK!

"Have your say in RBKC Planning Policy: Defining “affordable housing”, plus a say in how £2.6 million of NCIL money gets spent"


THINK has written a good piece which the Dame wants to share with you 

THE ROYAL BOROUGH GETS A STALINIST CELEB!

Our Royal Borough has a very posh new resident....step forward Stalinist, Wykamist and Balliol man, Seumas Milne. 
Seamas was the brains behind Corbyn's stunning electoral flop.
Here's Seumas in a clinch with a blonde in the sort of upscale club people like the Dame can't get into.
Anyway, Sheila Milne has had enough of his shenanigans and has kicked him out of the £2m Richmond home



Not one to slum it, Seumas, is now holed up with us other posh types in Kensington and Chelsea.

VIOLENT CRIME EMERGENCY MEETING. PLEASE GO

We all know why London is plagued with violent crime: it's all to do with impunity.
Criminals feel no fear of prison or the justice system. 

Shaun Bailey's solution is a lot of cloud cuckoo land thinking.
Bailey and Rory Stewart talk of putting thousands more police on London streets forgetting Johnson sold off all the police stations so how will they now be housed?
Residents attending the meeting should ask Bailey how he intends housing these extra police and who will pay for them. 
One assumes the police are now so used to driving around in smart BMW's they will refuse to pound the streets.

One solution to knife crime is a mandatory eight year sentence for carrying a blade and twenty years for using one.

The Dame encourages you to attend the meeting tomorrow night and pin Bailey down. 
It's a terrible shame that the best candidate the Conservatives can come up with is a blowhard like Bailey.



SLOANE STREET BECOMES HOSTAGE TO NO POLICING


On Saturday night Sloane and the surrounding streets were like something out of a Mad Max movie.
These scenes show a what happens when the police turn a blind eye to louts in noisy fast cars.
The police cannot pretend they knew nothing: this was a well-promoted event drawing this lawless tribe in from all parts of the Home Counties.
Up to the early hours of the morning drivers roared around the streets waking families and creating chaos.
It's time the police got a grip and stopped tolerating blatant anti-social behaviour.

THERE'S MONEY IN THAT THERE CARING!

Spencer & Arlington, who was supposed to be looking after dangerous Jonty Bravery, boast of having Westminster City Council as a client.
Is this relevant to RBK&C taxpayers? Possibly.
RBK&C has a bi borough relationship with WCC Adult Care so we need to know whether we have been helping the owners of Spencer & Arlington build up a multi-million pound property empire.
Spencer & Arlington Corporate office!

Mr and Mrs Hazmat Ali who owns Spencer & Arlington are sole directors and owners of Dyzack Estates Ltd
Click on image to see their millions

Possibly they won the lottery and that helped their property owning 'self caring' but the Dame suspects it more likely the portfolio was funded by the fees paid out by a whole bunch of councils. 
Council and outsourcing....what can go wrong!

HAMMERSMITH & FULHAM HAVE BIG QUESTIONS TO ANSWER OVER ATTEMPTED CHILD KILLER

...allowed out on his own-
despite threats to kill....
The 'care company' who decided that Jonty Bravery could go out unescorted is an Ilford based operation called Spencer and Arlington and owned by a Mr and Mrs Zaid Ali.In 2005 they appointed a 15 year old to their board....you could not make it up!



The reviews of the company are appalling Link despite that they seem to have been on a roll amassing over £2 million on their balance sheet. 
It just shows how much money you can make dealing with inept councils like Hammersmith & Fulham. 
But this company is also making money from other councils like Westminster and Essex CC.
But the Dame likes to look at Companies House records CO House 
She was amazed to discover the owner seems to have no health care qualifications and one of the ex-directors was a fifteen-year-old student born in 1988!!!


A Spencer and Arlington 'student' 15 year old director

SEIZED UP SUPERCAR: WELL DONE POLICE....BUT INTENSIFY

The local police say that the Supercars Season is fast approaching and that officers from Kenway Road had organized an operation to stop the high-powered vehicles being driven in a reckless and aggressive manner.
For residents, it seems it is Open Season for these trouble makers.
The good news is that today’s operation netted one Lamborghini seized for being driven without insurance.
You have to wonder who would drive a £150,000 car without insurance....




Officers proactively patrolled the area of Brompton and Hans Town to tackle the supercars problem. This will be an ongoing initiative to combat robustly and vigorously this Anti-Social Behaviour on Brompton and Hans Town Ward.
