For new readers: Kensington & Chelsea Leader Sir Merrick was dubbed "Prime Minister Pooter' by the Royal Boroughs' From the Hornets Nest Blog penned by the well informed 'Dame'. They first alerted PBROtrib to our own 'Dear Leader Cereste' secretly brown nosing Sir Merrick at a toffs cocktail party, and according to Marco several subsequent meetings. We'll be checking the expenses, according to the 'Dame' Sir Merrick has astronomically expensive international tastes...
Marco seemingly, without full consultation, offered to facilitate the building of houses for the Kensington & Chelsea 'overspill' social housing population, plus a few 'exec' homes for Kensington toffs in Peterborough ... RBK&C recently spent £23 million, just replacing the pavements on Exhibition Road, more precisely £23 million on pink granite imported from China, and RBK&C spends over £1 million a year on an under canvas open air opera company, the RBK&C would seem to be very keen to offload the latter onto Peterborough - If they bone up on a few drinking songs, they'd go down really well at the Peterborough Beer Festival, and can even bring their own tent !
We in turn, could offer them POSH ( a football club ) which seems to fit in well with the theme of TOFFS and the RBK&C. ( possibly renamed WELL POSH or POSH KENSINGTON FC. After all Wimbledon moved to Milton Keynes... ) The old LONDON ROAD ground released, would then expand the aspirational riverside fun park development. To complete the circle, possibly a slice offered back to RBK&C for housing....Simples!
POOTER GOES CHURCHILLIAN
From the Hornets Nest (Kensington) Blog
The Dame has heard that our 'Prime Minister' has been rallying his 'Cabinet' fearful in the face of the threat from Nigel Farage...his bete noir.This is an extract from the PM Pooter's speech as to how he intends fighting the UKIP threat...."
"We shall defend our Rotten Borough, whatever the cost may be (we have £170 million in reserves). We shall fight UKIP on Exhibitionist Rd, we shall fight over Opera Holland Park..
......we shall never surrender!!!
The pathetic creature is shitting bricks
The Tories love power. If the Conservative Group in Hornton Street think that Cockell is the wrong man to fight UKIP then they will dump him
The fact that UKIP think they have a chance in what has been a staunch Tory Borough is now blatant testimony to the dreadful treatment residents of this Borough have been subjected to by this council. They have not only spent fragrantly they have ignored at their peril the very people who trusted them to take care of them. Let the games begin.
I hope enough people vote UKIP to give Sir Pooter the boo
I thought it was £170m, not £170k. It does rather feel like being robbed.
It is £170m. And that's before the £110m that selling the Holland Park School playground will bring in.Kerching!
