Lightfoot on the backfoot

The Westway Epics Centre here in W10 is a day centre providing a place where the elderly folk of the area can meet, have a chat, enjoy lunch and enjoy themselves. A great place that is enjoyed by those who use it.

Kensington and Chelsea Council announced last year that it was considering the future of the day centre in North Kensington, in light of the spending cuts it has to make.

But there are no firm alternatives yet in place for users of the centre, who as things stand, would have to be transported from their homes in North Kensington to the Miranda Barry Day Centre in Fulham Road - a journey that could take more than an hour when traffic is bad.

Funny then according to Labour Cllr Judith Blakeman the councils finance man and wannabe MP Warwick Lightfoot told her it was a shame it was closing.   Cllr Lightfoot, the failed London Mayoral Candidate for the Tories naturally denies this heinous alleged comment.

What makes it more startling though dear reader, is that the public consultation on the proposals for the centre havent yet been concluded....    ...so that begs the question does public consultation really matter here in K&C?

So if Cllr Lightfoot did say what Cllr Blakeman has said he did, and she has "gone public" with no comment from Cllr Lightfoot then he either has let the cat out of the rather large black bag, or has committed a genuine error.

Only he knows the answer.

  1. Why would they care in the 'let them eat cake' regime Cockle runs.
    Rather than cutting such a valuable asset he could have considered cutting his $400 dinners with convicts
