A VERY PRICY PR MAN


 

The Dame knows just a bit about PR. 

In her younger, more dynamics days, she founded what is now a rather large international communications group.

So when she sent the Council's £150k a year PR man a missive she assumed he would be pleased to 'influence' a blog that daily is read by around 800-1500 RBKC residents.

Not a bit of it... Mr Price-Thompson has his own agenda.

His agenda is to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds of our money on publications put unread into council recycling bags: it's called vertical integration.

The Council is now spending well over £700,000 a year on 'communications'. 

That is a budget not dissimilar to that of a FTSE 100....quite incredible.

Nick? A word of advice...a local blog reaching your precise target audience is one you should cultivate not blank!

AN AWFUL UNLAWFUL END TO PORTOBELLO MARKET?



Dear Dame


As protector of the downtrodden could you please publish this? 

Your 'blog is now the 'go to' source for news of 
dark doings in our Royal Borough......

.....it has long been noted that RBKC is a place beyond the reach of the law of the land. 
While the ghosts of Grenfell Tower are still not at peace RBKC has conceived yet another way to rid itself of more of the largely BAME lower classes in nearby Portobello Market.

With NO public consultation, RBKC is quietly clearing the way for planning permission to be granted to 
ten Portobello market pubs and restaurants, enabling them to place out tables and chairs on the roadway for evening trade. 
In the main, these are pubs and restaurants owned by huge international companies.

To this end, RBKC has told its market traders they must leave their pitches immediately the international corporate interests demand their spaces. 
This spells the end of Portobello Market and another part of our rich history.

Apart from the simple cruelty of the plan, in true medieval style, RBKC ignores the fact that this is unlawful. 

It’s not a merely a breach of local regulations, but of primary, parliamentary legislation. 
The London Local Authorities Act 1952 as amended, protects the rights of some of the poorest people in society to earn a living.

Cllr Lady Catherine Faulks remains oblivious. 
She recently told the traders they must adjust to the new reality. 
Or perhaps officers in the multiple departments responsible for this outrage omitted to inform councillors of RBKC’s legal position.

As ever, RBKC expects North Kensington's underclass to disappear in silence. 
History shows that RBKC is mistaken. 
Meanwhile, Cllr Faulks will doubtless welcome residents’ views on her position regarding this matter.

In conclusion, never forget that some of Britain's greatest retailers emerged from  a simple market stall...
Marks & Spencers, Tesco, Superdry, Monsoon are just a smattering of retailers who started life in markets like Portobello.


Yours truly
North Ken

THREE POINTLESS CEO'S


The Dame is a great admirer of Mr. Sunak. One day, very soon, she hopes will be our Prime Minister. 

When he does he needs to slash and burn public sector waste. 

In microcosm, this image shows a problem replicated throughout the UK. 

A reader sent this picture of three Civil Enforcement Officers idling away in a quiet backstreet. 

It is outrageous that when money is not available to pay really essential workers there is money to waste on these wastrels. 

One hopes Mr Vennard will get a grip on this sort of mismanagement of expensive resources.

SECCOMBE ' ING TO GREED! THE IZZI & PHIL SHOW





Forgive the Dame for going off topic.....

Being ghastly, she rarely gets invited for weekends.

Recently, a misguided couple from Warwickshire regretted inviting her for a long weekend at their charming 'barn conversion'.

Over a 'county dinner party' she heard a story that made Sir Pooter Cockell seem quite frugal.

It seems her host's friends Mr. and Mrs. Seccombe are the talk of 'Tout Warwickshire'. 

Why? Well, it seems the lucky duo are paid a bit above £130,000 a year courtesy of taxpayers....and there's a pension in there too....

Izzi 'leads' Warwickshire County Council and grabs £40,000 a year; her hubby, Phil pulls in nearly £90,000 as a fairly hopeless Police and Crime Commissioner for the county.

When the country is on its uppers, it's good to see a Conservative duo conserving wealth for themselves. 

Come back, Pooter, all is forgiven!

CLLRS CAMPBELL AND WEALE: THE OLD GUARD WHO LED AT THE TIME OF GRENFELL...STEP ASIDE PLEASE

The new generation of Conservative councillors are proving to be rather good: so good the Dame often feels her days are over. 

But there are headwinds that cannot be ignored....


The Leader, Cllr Campbell, commissioned an ‘independent’ report from American-owned Kroll at huge cost.

The Dame suggests readers read the report looking into four specific property transactions and the Leader’s opinion that it acknowledged no wrongdoing. 

KROLL REPORT


However, Campbell said things were not as they should have been pre 2017. 

That admission leads the Dame to an awkward question and a suggestion.

 

Two members of what in those pre 2017 days was grandiosely described as the Cabinet still run the Council.

 

They are the leader, Cllr Campbell and Cllr Weale.

 

The Council is not a publicly quoted company. 

Were it the directors would be forced to step aside until exonerated from any involvement in decisions leading to a catastrophe on the scale of Grenfell.

 

The Dame cannot believe the Leader and Cllr Weale have not given serious thought to their positions.

 

There is a groundswell of opinion that Campbell and Weale represent the ‘Old Order’.


Though sacrificing their substantial allowances might be painful they should step down pro tem and let the deputy leader, Kim Taylor-Smith, and another councillor untainted by the past take over. 

People moot Cllrs Will or Cyron as having the qualities to deputise for Taylor-Smith during the interregnum but that is not a decision for the Dame.


THE RESIDENTS OF NORTH KENSINGTON DESERVE THE VERY BEST REPRESENTATION

Too often North Ken residents feel treated as second-class citizens.

A situation unimproved when their interests are represented by third raters like Cllrs Kasim Ali and Elnaghi. 

The Dame only ever hears about Elnaghi attending meetings without a clue as to what he is talking about. 

As for Ali...the less said the better: not that there is much to say.

Labour has good hardworking councillors who represent voters responsibly: Henderson is an example. 

On the Lib Dem side, Linda Wade gets stuck in.

So why should residents tolerate duds like Elnaghi and Ali who take their allowances without putting in the legwork? 

When challenged they pathetically go around saying they are victims of race and hate! 

The real victims are those foolish enough to have elected these two clowns.

BARONESS BINGHAM PLEASE!

Without Kate Bingham, we would be in the same vaccine mess as the EU.

Nadhim Zahawi appointed by Boris as Vaccine Tsar cleverly insinuated he somehow managed the vaccine rollout. 

No great surprise: he's a friend and protege of that virtuous, self-publicist, Milord Archer. 

When he claimed,  "I stand on the shoulders of giants" it was a slick way of trying to pretend most of the credit was due to him when it was down to Bingham and the military.

What this odious man should have said is we all stand on the shoulders of that giant, Kate Bingham: that would have been the truth. 

It was Bingham's  procurement foresightedness that ensured the vaccine programme will be complete by July

The political class has screwed up pandemic management at every stage. 

We have all been saved by a clever private equity specialist with a First Class degree in biochemistry from Oxford.

COMRADE CLLR ALI CALLS FOR CLEMENCY AS LONG AS THE DAME BENDS HER ARTHRITIC KNEE

Hysterical weepy Horneteers have been gathering at the entrance of the Dame's palatial Art Deco style penthouse waiting for the Dame's Armstrong Siddeley to whisk her off to Belmarsh where she will serve her ten-year sentence for 'councillor hating'.

Some wondered how many of the Dame's voluminous frocks will be transported to Belmarsh so she doesn't 'let the side down'. 

To satisfy public demand the Hermes valises below will accompany the Dame on the journey.



THALASSITES PRAISED BY 'THIS IS NORTH KENSINGTON'

When 'This Is North Kensington' praises a Conservative councillor it is praise indeed. PRAISE

Despite Johnny Thalassites getting a bit of stick by certain residents over the parking permit kerfuffle, he's noted as a councillor who listens to residents and strives for balance.

The Dame had her initial doubts about this younger councillor but he is rapidly growing in stature and is a leader in waiting.

THE DAME TO BE CALLED IN FOR POLICE INTERVIEW

The good Dame will soon be spending time at 'Her Majesty's Pleasure'  and that won't be very pleasurable for an elderly and refined lady like the Dame.


Having failed to get the men in wigs to sue her for defamation Being Beastly Cllrs Elnaghi and Ali took advice that they had been 'hated' and reported her to the Special Central Hate Crime Unit/Subsection 1984 at Kensington Police Station.

If found guilty of 'hating' the two gentlemen the Dame can choose between a spell at Belmarsh or attending a Hate Awareness Course. 

Or.... she can send over a huge Fortnum's hamper to these two blubbing dimwits!

Man up, you idiotic drips!

THE MAD,MAD WORLD OF ROYAL MAIL...AN UNCHECKED CZECH AT THE HELM

There's nothing like blatant flattery to win over the winsome old Dame so thank you to this loyal reader for alerting us to a mysterious, machinating Czech shareholder. 

And, no, the Dame has people who stand in line for her.....

Royal Mail's billionaire shareholder is holding management's feet to the fire to supercharge profits. So far he has forced management to close down branch after branch. Now he has told them to get customers used to a branchless Royal Mail using the pandemic as an excuse to reduce customer service to the purely nominal



Dear Dame,

Whilst waiting in a queue outside Kings Road Post office for 40 minutes yesterday I spotted this Notice -  which tells us that in order to protect Staff & Customers from Covid the Post Office is reducing its opening hours.

Whilst standing in the cold I had plenty of time to try to work out how any reduction in opening hours is going to protect anyone – but unfortunately, my lockdown-addled brain failed to follow the logic.   Although you personally will never have had to stand in line we do know that you are a woman of great acuity. Perhaps you can explain?

When I finally made it to the Post Office counter and asked the staff if they understood the reasoning they were unable to enlighten me. 

But they did point out that all the other remaining Post Offices in the area are actually going to close at 2pm – “in order to protect & serve their customers better”. 

Which at least explained why the queue at Kings Road literally stretched around the corner

Hey, Ho what interesting times we live in.......

TOP MARKS FOR CHUTZPAH


 


 The Marks planned new £7 million home monstrosity

A prominent member of our parish is Lady Marks, wife of Lib Dem peer, Lord Marks QC. 

Lady Marks travels at great velocity between her gorgeous Kensington house and an Oxfordshire 10 bedder mansion.

In court, the other day Lady Marks got a bollocking for an appalling speeding record but got off a ban thanks to the oratorical wizardry of up-and-coming barrister, Julian Hunt.

Hunt is rapidly taking over from Nick Freeman aka Mr Loophole.

Hunt's defence had the Dame weeping. 

This is a MUST READ FROM THE MAIL

Hunt claimed the Marks had only 'a few thousands in savings'  and she needed her over sized BMW to keep, as Hunt claimed,"all the plates spinning'. 

Without the Beamer "all the plates would fall to the floor.

Her Ladyship also claimed His Lordship-a £1million a year, 4 Pump Court QC, suffered from 'pulmonary issues', had no staff, and was 'isolated'(?)

If that's the case the Dame advises His Lordship to stay away from the courtroom and all those heavyweight trials.

The Dame did her research and came up with this which rather puts paid to the defence of no dough LOADS OF MONEY and just a few thousands in savings.....

Typical Lib Dem hypocrisy....

RESIDENTS PARKING CHARGES HIKE: AN ATTACK ON WORKERS


 


Dame 

This huge rise in parking my 16-year-old car is anti-working folk. 

You, Dame, can take the increase without batting an eyelid. 

We struggling working people cannot.

The rise is anti-working class. To do this when the pandemic threatens our livelihoods is disgustingly cynical.

From April Fools Day the Council has increased the cost of parking my car from £122 to £261 when I and thousands are struggling to make ends meet. 

That’s a 100% increase!!!!

This Council promised to consult and understand the needs of ordinary people like me. 

Well, they fooled me.....ONCE!

To add insult to financial injury some council idiot tells me if I have £30k to burn they will let me park my electric car for nothing. 

Town Hall Tories don’t understand how ordinary people live. 

It's Grenfell all over again.

To add insult to injury the ULEZ charge of £15 a day comes on top for the likes of me who have cars made pre 2005 or diesels post 2015. 

And I just changed my 26-year-old car for a 16-year-old car to comply with the threshold.

Cllr Thalassites says that the aim of the tax is to reduce pollution

 

Rubbish! 

Residents’ cars are less than 1% of RBKC pollution.


We are a transit Borough: pollution comes from buses, taxis, vans, trucks, and cars passing through from the M4, M40, and other trunk roads to and from central London. 

Transit vehicles are moving on our streets all of the time. 

Residents' vehicles are used infrequently (I use my car once a week, and travel around London on the tube or bus)

Resident traffic is tiny compared to what transits the Borough.

This is an opportunist tax.


There has been no Impact Analysis Study. It is an abuse of power to raise taxes from financially hard-pressed residents by parading under a “save the world” banner.

 

Resident Parking Permits should be treated exactly as they say...parking for residents who pay Council Tax. 

And charged at cost. 

Which is about £11 per permit, including administration. 

Transport policy should not, and cannot, be the responsibility of piecemeal Borough Councils.

 

This rise is a calculated attack upon poorer residents under the pretext, “we are helping to save the planet".

A NORTH KENSINGTON WORKING MAN WITH A FAMILY TO SUPPORT

WHY THE MET COMMISSIONER IS BULLET PROOF

Common Purpose. org is the most powerful behaviour changing organisation you know little about. 

Despite that, it exerts a baleful influence in every area of our lives.

It aims to supplant our style of democracy with the 'nod to democracy' style practiced by CP's role model, the elitist EU organisation. 

The UK's leaving was a bitter blow to CP's ambitions,

There is no segment of society untargeted and un-infiltrated by Common Purpose:its power and influence are frightening and formidable. 

This is a MUST READ

So what has all this to do with Met Commissioner, Cressida Dick?

Dick has been a leading light of CP for many years. As a result hundred of mid-ranking and senior coppers have been sent on its courses.



Despite her role in the appalling VIP Abuse scandal, she will keep her job. 

Common Purpose looks after its own....

WHAT A LOT OF MEDALS, COMMISSIONER

 

Here we have a much bemedalled Commissioner Dick. 
Dick is getting scant support from the equally useless All Mouth and No Trousers Patel so it looks like the skids are under Dick over the ultra-bodged VIP Sex Abuse scandal. 

Dick is a very senior member of the shadowy Common Purpose org. 

Common Purpose sends rather dull coppers on Oxford courses so they can boast of their time amongst the dreaming spires. One supposes it impresses junior officers.

Anyway, Dick's medals remind the old Dame of an old friend, The Lord High Chancellor, FE Smith. 

Hard drinking FE after a substantial lunch at his club spied an admiral covered in medals earned for desk work. 

He wandered over to the nervous looking admiral commenting, "what a lot of medals you have, Admiral?"

The nervous-looking admiral replied, "yes, Lord Chancellor, if I get any more I won't know where to put them"

'Put them on your backside where you earned them", replied FE.

THE DAME THROWS DOWN THE GAUNTLET TO THE LOOPY LABOUR LOT

A few months back the Dame gave a good kicking to Cllr Elnaghi READ HERE for taking meetings without a clue as to what he was talking about. 

Cllr Kasim Ali got similar treatment for being out of sight and boasting about attending JUMA with fascistic thug, President Erdogan READ HERE

The Dame hears this so offended the two councilors they sought legal advice as to whether they had grounds for suing the old Dame. 

When advised that no such grounds existed they decided to accuse the old thing of a HATE CRIME!

The last councillor to try to 'legal' the Dame was the late Cllr Phelps for exposing his interest in young boys. 

Soon after he was kicked off the Council

So Cllrs Ali and Elnaghi get on with the job of representing your residents. 

The Dame has her beady eye on you both........





HARPING ON AND GETTING IT WRONG

                                                                     Helen Harper

This lady is described as the Police  Commander for K&C, Hammersmith & Fulham, Westminster, and the Royal Parks. Her speciality is sending out a stream of patronising and infantalising messages about Covid-19. 
99.9% of Londoners are well aware of the rules and adhere to them.

Someone needs to tell her that the first thing she should do is to use the Government mandated description COVID-19

She also seems to think she is some sort of civic leader! 

The area she has responsibility for is seeing some of the most frightening examples of violent street crime yet this lady prefers to dwell on what she described as 'this deadly disease'.

The vast majority of us are far more concerned about our safety on the streets. 

It might be a useful distraction to bang on about one disease she needs to focus on the far more frightening disease of murderous violence on our streets.



Helen Harper, the police commander for Central West which covers Westminster, Hammersmith & Fulham and Kensington & Chelsea and The Royal Parks, has called on every single person in the community to play their part in driving down Covid rates by following the rules and minimising contact with others, as officers move more quickly to enforcement and work with partners to keep the public safe.

Chief Superintendent Helen Harper said: “It is hard to imagine that anyone has escaped an understanding of the critical situation London, and especially the NHS is under, due to the high levels of Covid in our communities. “We’ve seen doctors and nurses run ragged by the number of people they are caring for, read about the rising death rates and heard about delays to ambulances attending calls.

GRANT SHAPPS....A LIAR IN CHARGE OF OUR LIVES

Lying little spiv

               We British are a stalwart race. 

We allow a man risibly described as the 'Right Honourable' to dictate to us when and where we can holiday. 

A few years back the 'business' activities of this little spiv, should have been a matter of police interest yet here we are with this little horror ordering us about. 

Shapps might like to find this defamatory but the Dame doubts Shapps would wish to hear a judge's opinion on the matter 

Shapps didn't take the Daily Mail to court when the Dame's friend, Mr Pierce EXPOSED  him so it must all be true.

It's astonishing how the likes of Charles Tannock ex MEP threaten the Dame but never dare carry the threat through.

We now also have a Jeffrey Archer protege running the vaccination programe.

Boris certainly likes to have a 'colourful' and scruple-free Cabinet.....

KENSINGTON SOCIETY ALERT ....DEVELOPERS ON MANOEUVRES!

 Dear Members

We apologise that the first email was sent incomplete.  Please disregard and read this alert.

This next week several important deadlines loom which you may want to comment.





344-350 Old Brompton Road (PP/21/00272)
  • The comments are due this week for the application for nine-storey block of flats proposed by the new Earl’s Court Partnership, which will wrap around the corner of Old Brompton Road and Eardley Crescent facing the lovely peaceful Royal Park of Brompton Cemetery.  See image by the developer above.
  • We support more housing though this will be solely for the rental market.  We are opposed the height and scale, lack of meaningful outdoor space, the impact on the Brompton Cemetery Conservation Area and what must be considered as setting the pattern for the beginning of a massive increase in height for the rest of the future Earl’s Court development.
  • Though the formal “public consultation” ends soon, your comments must be accepted up until  decision is made.  Write now and tell your friends to write. 
 Your comments are needed: HERE
 




South Kensington Station development (PP/20/03216)
  • Over 1,800 objections have been received opposing plans for the redevelopment of the station and the land surrounding the tracks. But your help is still needed. 
  •  
  • There is a promise by Native Land that if they are allowed to build along the entire length of Pelham Street and rebuild the Thurloe Street building behind a “retained” fa├žade, they will not start the remaining development until the station upgrade, including step-free access from Thurloe Street to the underground platforms is completed. However, there is no means to guarantee that after having built the lucrative parts on Thurloe Street and Pelham Street that they will ever even want to complete the scheme, and therefore there no means of forcing the construction of the step-free access.
  • With a sleight of hand, we could end up with a massive development and still a station which is not step-free.
  • We ask that you write opposing the application and demanding that no works are undertaken at all until step-free access and the station upgrade is completed.

BAILEY BOMBS!


There was a moment when the Conservative Party could have found a paragon of political virtue to expel 'Khan't do anything right' from ruining our great global city. 

It could have been a retired but influential business leader....instead, they choose a dimwit whose only claim to fame is this charade of being a  streetwise 'ghetto boy'.

So, what is it about Shaun Bailey that has so enthralled the Conservative Party? 

It cannot be his intelligence for its absence has been long proved by inane ideas thrown out like confetti.

Is it because he's black? 

If so it's an insult to intelligent black voters who will resent being patronised in this way.

His selection will remain a great mystery of our times and as the Steeples Times reports the bookies have this man down as a back of the pack LOSER

GAVIN WILLIAMSON IS IN CHARGE....DON'T PANIC!

The Dame thought she could breathe a sigh of relief when she read the PM has set up the National Economy Recovery Taskforce. 

Relief was quickly replaced with fear when she read who the members were.....

Gavin Williamson, hapless Education secretary who managed to bring Aynsley China to its knees.




Grant Shapps who once claimed to be someone else to promote his failed 'get rich quick' correspondence course.





and Kwasi Kwarteng whose sole business experience was a part-time job with Crispin 'Odious' Odey.

This country is in a serious state. The Taskforce needs serious members rather than this bunch of no-hopers. 

It's an insult to business people who have seen their companies decimated.

KNIVES OUT FOR PATEL

 

Looks like the skids are under the most ridiculous and embarrassing Home Secretary in living memory.

Telling people British people they cannot leave their country is just a totalitarian step too far. 

Having left Uganda because of a dictator one would have thought the idiot sensitive to dictatorial demands. 

Boris....Dump her...she is a clear and present danger to your already damaged image.

NO WARTIME CABINET! PRITI HOPELESS STRIKES AGAIN

Boris Johnson had a very clever plan when choosing his Cabinet.

His thought was that by appointing a bunch of duds he would appear a giant amongst pipsqueaks.

The Steeples Times has laid into Priti Patel as chief amongst the witless though closely followed by Shapps, Williamson and Jenrick. STEEPLES TIMES

Patel's 'modus operandi' is to talk tough but do bugger all. 

She can't even stop people crossing a 22 miles stretch of water.

The idiot even tried to reference a wartime situation: in wartime, no dimwit like Patel would have a place.

HAS THIS COMMUNIST SAGE MEMBER BEEN POSITIVELY VETTED?

The Dame is from an era when the security services positively vetted known and suspected communists. The sensible assumption was allegiances might lay with foreign powers.

So what has this to do with Professor Susan Mitchie and her ex-husband, Andrew Murray-Drummond, The Master of Mastrick?

Comrade Michie is a long-time active member of the Communist Party of Great Britain and also works for the British Government as a powerful member of SAGE. 

We have no idea what sensitive information she has access to especially as the armed forces now work alongside SAGE.

Her  Stalin apologist ex-husband joined the Communist Party at the age of eighteen and recently worked for Mr Corbyn. He and Comrade Mitchie are still on good terms.

No one accuses this rich, aristocratic duo of malicious intentions but it is fair and reasonable to ask whether Comrade Mitchie, a highly active communist, has been cleared at the highest levels.

If not....why not...or has the Dame read too much Le Carre?

SEC OF STATE CALLS IN KENSINGTON FORUM APPLICATION

 The Kensington Society reports...

Kensington Forum Hotel:
 
Good news – the Secretary of State has decided to call in the Mayor of London’s application for his own decision. This will mean that there will be a public inquiry, although we do not have a timetable yet.
 
The main parties to the inquiry will be:
  • The developer, supported by the Mayor of London; and
  • RBKC, supported by local residents and the Kensington Society
 
We shall contact you again when we have more details of the timetable to seek your support.
 
 
South Kensington Station:
 
The applicants – Native Land/TfL – have submitted their “revised” scheme. The Council is seeking comments by 12 February. We are working closely with local residents’ associations and we will be submitting our objection.
 
We shall be in contact with you again when we have assessed the changes in relation to our objection to the original application and seek your support.  The changes have, as far as we have had time to assess, not addressed our objections.

WHY IS A NON MEDICAL COMMUNIST ADVISING THE GOVERNMENT?

RED headed RED

Stalinist member of the Communist Party of GB, Susan Mitchie, cannot believe her luck!

As a SAGE member, she has a unique ability to influence government policy at the very highest level: the sort of influence a hardline Commie and 'behavioral scientist'(!) could only dream of. 

Mitchie, whose grandfather, Lord Aberconway, was one of the UK's richest men says the Government's plan to pay everyone who tests positive for COVID £500 is 'disgusting'.

"everybody should get much more" says this multi-millionaire champion of the workers!

THE HOUR COMETH AND IT IS NOW: MAKE THE AMAZONS ET AL PAY DOWN OUR DEBT

A Prime Minister in waiting

Other Chancellors of the Exchequer might bow to the advice of Treasury Officials that a financial massacre of the middle classes would get him out of his pandemic hole.

Fortunately, in Rishi Sunak we have a chancellor with a deep understanding of debt management and a caustic opinion of Treasury advice. 

He knows outside the comfort of the Treasury his officials would be unemployable: certainly not at his alma mater, Goldmans.

His officials are so bereft of ideas the best and most boring idea they can put up is a capital tax on middle-class property assets: just the sort of lazy, unimaginative thinking you expect from petty bureaucrats holed up in the Treasury.

Fortunately, Rishi is a brainbox. He knows that to boot out Boris the last thing he should do is antagonise and emasculate the middle classes.

There is a host of international vultures who prey upon this country...Amazon, Facebook, McDonald's, eBay, Starbucks, Google, Apple...by using tax ploys to artificially deflate profits.

We need Rishi Sunak to lead this country. 

All he has to do is to target each of these vultures and he would be three-quarters of the way home. 

Hurting little old ladies like the Dame won't do the business and will cost him his premiership.

HYPO PRITI CAL PATEL

All mouth and no trousers

You wouldn't mind if she was any good but Patel besides being a dud is a contemptible hypocrite.

The other day, brandishing a Taser, she boasted she had told the police to ruthlessly enforce the pandemic regulations 'for the health of the nation'.

Conveniently she drew a veil over her Shandwick PR days. There she had no difficulty promoting the interests of British American Tabacco and its products that kill and maim millions more that Covid ever has or will.

Other team members were embarrassed to be working for BAT but the company found Patel 'very relaxed in her role.'

SUTTON ESTATE SAVED....NO LOSERS ONLY WINNERS!

Cllr Ian Henderson writes...

"After 12 long years, the residents and surrounding community can sigh with relief knowing the legacy of William Sutton will be preserved with a continuation of social housing on the site for another 100 years.

This is not just a social housing victory but an environmental one too. We have shown that quality old buildings can be remodelled for the 21st Century whilst still serving the original purpose.

Working with the conscientious Mr Quinn and his new management team a historic decision was made to halt the proposed destruction of the estate and ensure its continuation as a vital and living community asset.

We have received messages from George and Ruth Landow, the Emeritus Professor from Brown University who wants to skip a couple of chemo sessions so they can come to the UK and celebrate when circumstances allow.

We have had many such wishes such was the support from everyone. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for making this happen."

SHAUN BAILEY'S BRILLIANT NEW IDEA....YOU COULD NOT MAKE IT UP!

Crazy Guy!



At first, the old Dame thought mischievous Steeples Times was just being beastly to Bailey: after all, how could anyone in their right minds come up with such a horrendously daft idea. 

Shaun wants homeless London families to 'save up' £5,000 so that they can get a mortgage. 

You can read about this bizarre idea HERE

KWASI? YOU FORGOT MORGAN THE GORGON

This is Baroness Morgan, a woman totally unqualified to be near any business. So how on earth was she ever allowed to get involved with the Royal Brompton when her appalling business track record was known to all? 
She was a NED of three Dog companies.
Carrilion....Southern Cross and Countrywide.
When the Dame demanded she depart from the RB that expense grabbing chair of the governors, Mates, wrote this to the Dame

Kwasi Kwarteng, the new business secretary is now pursuing eight former directors of the former hoping to ban them as directors for fifteen years.

The outsourcer’s former chairman, two chief executives, two finance directors and three non-executives could be disqualified under proceedings brought by Kwasi Kwarteng, Business ­Secretary.

So, Kwasi, why has Morgan been missed off the list?

WHY DOES GOVERNMENT TOLERATE THE LIB DEMS USELESS POLICE AND CRIME COMMISSIONERS


 Lord 'Blockhead' Bach: A Dimwit Police Crime Commissioners with his sweet little uniforms he had run up!


Dearest Dame,

To date, Police and Crime Commissioners have cost our country half a billion pounds. 

This wasted money could have built several hospitals and dozens of schools.

A reader asked what purpose do PCC's serve; the cruel answer none apart from rewarding petty provincial nonentities with £80k a year 'allowances'. It's a national disgrace a Conservative government ever allowed the Lib Dems to force the idea on Cameron as the price of power: it's an even greater disgrace this government has not binned this trash.

The moment I read about the fining of two local women who wanted to walk by the Foremark reservoir in Derbyshire (and who were also told their hot drinks were a picnic and forbidden), I thought:

The Derbyshire PCC, Hardyal Dhindsa, a former Labour local councillor, said the police were reviewing the incident. 

Mr Dhindsa is the man who vigorously defended the constabulary in March when they used drones to make a video attacking people who went for a walk: a blunder that was followed later by the resignation of the chief constable. 

This time, and finally, after the police had apologised and refunded the fined women, comes a feeble statement from the PCC “welcoming” the force’s readiness to review and adding, “I am sure the force will learn lessons from this incident”.

Dimwit Dhindsa then tried to wriggle out of the exoneration of the two ladies adding this piece of nonsense; "However, it’s vital people not only abide by the law but they also enter into the spirit of lockdown. . . ” — as though these blameless women had failed to, or that there was any excuse for a simple case of officer-misjudgment. 

Why that “however”? 

Shouldn’t this just have been a matter of standing up unambiguously for two wronged members of the public? 

PCCs are for the most part low grade party poodles and constabulary stooges. 

Sweep them away...all of them lot of them!

GO LOCAL: DON'T USE STARBUCKS AND OTHER MULTINATIONAL TAX DODGERS


Blackball Starbucks, Costa, McDonalds

The business of local, independently owned cafes and restaurants have been devastated by an incoherent government strategy.

When this lockdown ends most will end up on their knees never to rise again.

For Starbucks, it will be a time to celebrate the demolition of small competitors aided and abetted by this government. 

With billions behind them, they can run at a loss for years squeezing out the 'little people' competition.

The several outlets they run in K&C will boom.

Starbucks’ UK-based European business paid just £18.3m in tax last year while paying the parent company in Seattle £348m in dividends collected from licensing its brand.

Costa, McDonald's also use their power to manipulate tax due: most using EU tax-avoiding entities.

So, if we love our community we should hate Starbucks and be locally loyal.


CHELSEA SMALL BUSINESS UNDER ATTACK FROM BORIS THE BULLYBOY

But with a fully paid up member of the Communist Party advising Johnson's government what do you expect?
