War in Courtfield

The Dame was at a tea party in Courtfield Gardens yesterday. She was regaled by a fellow guest with a most extraordinary story about toys being thrown out of the pram at a Courtfield Ward Association meeting. Over the clatter of tea cups the Dame's great friend, Her Grace, the Dowager Duchesss of xxxxx( too much Downton Abbey Dame ed) told her that the Chairman of the Ward Colonel xxxxxx had gone to war with the ghastly arriviste stockbroker's grandson Sir Anthony Coates.(thank you Up Yours for the clarification. It would seem that the Coatess' made money in share trading before marrying above themselves into the aristocracy)

 left: angry colonel

In fury, the Colonel stomped off throwing his resignation on the table in disgust. Then another committee member said she would not sit at the same table as the LMVH adorned Mr Frazer-Howells: she too resigned.
Sadly, Cllr Holt, a very decent cove, who loathes Coates tried to rustle up support for the Colonel but it never got to a vote: the Colonel just pushed off.
Some more 'inside knowledge' needed on this one please....so thank you 'anonymous' for this comment

 "The resignation of Lt Colonel James Fairey as Chairman of Courtfield Ward is a sad loss to local Conservatives. James was tireless in his efforts and through his contacts built up a thriving social scene and interesting meetings for residents. Lord Archer has twice addressed us."


Yet another inside view.....Courfield Committee Member....

"It is not only Coates who gets up the nostrils of Coutfield residents (the man has a most unfortunate manner).
But the even more odious Frazer-Howells likes to show himself at meetings and events. We are mortified that Elsa has also resigned after giving an ultimatum - "I cannot bear to sit at the same table as that man". Elsa is a huge loss because she did all of our catering for the events that Col Fairey organised. Now we have no Chairman and no hostess."

  3. Well of course Up Yours...we hear what you say, though most people can't abide the pompous old f**t.
    Is not his wife not related to Burtons

  4. The boring and pompous Anthony Coates has been a useless Ward councillor and has created huge division on the Ward Committee. No one understands why Hornton Street saddles local residents with this trash.

    The very nice Cllr Elizabeth Rutherford (also a Ward councillor of Courtfield) has managed to calm things but her leave of absence this year to be Deputy Mayor has meant that no one has been around to shield committee members from the odious Coates

  6. Oh dear me.

    Ward Committees and their Chairmen used to be the backbone of local Conservatism. But now we seem to have the tail wagging the dog with this top down fiefdom that characterises Cllr Cockell's rule

    Democracy has been well and truly snuffed out in K&C

  7. What does Cllr Holt know about all of this?

    Time for him to spill the beans.......

  8. Councillor Up Yours has clearly got a problem and has not taken my advice to get help. This help is now needed as a matter of urgency. My diagnosis is that he is suffering from Danny Boy Syndrome, so long as they have a title, nothing else matters.

  11. Dame
    Can you disable Up Yours. He is just so tediously obsequious to 'The Quality' as he refers to anyone with a title. The Coatess' got their title through donations to a political party

  12. Perhaps we should rename Up Yours 'Hyacinth Bouquet'; he is certainly pretentious enough.

  13. What on earth is Coates doing as a councillor? He obviously can't cut it where he belongs....

    And has Cllr Cockell talked with the Ward Chairman? Has he tried to calm troubled waters? Of course not - the prat is too busy self promoting himself.

    Not a gram of Leadership material in Cockell

  14. The real problem is that Councillor Coates and his 'Lady' are very pleased with themselves and feel that they are 'very grand' with their shoot in Yorkshire. What Councillor Up Yours does not seem to realise is that they think that he is totally socially unacceptable. At least they have got one thing right.

  15. I fear you are right, Anonymous 15.13, Up Yours with his fawning ways is more of an embarrassment every day.

    The Council reeks with the most noxious snobbery; sorry to say that attracts these sad creatures like flies to ahem, bad smells.

    methinks you are anti semitic and a snob!!!
    Just because Lady Coates is the granddaughter of a Jewish Lithuanian
    suit maker does not make her un grand.
    Curb your boring snobbishness and anti semitism

  17. 16.43. I am sure that Lady Coates will be delighted with your post, with friends like you who needs Up Yours? 16.43 you are truly sad and obviously racist as well.

  18. Excuse me you idiot 17:36 I am on the side of Lady Coates and if it's any of your business I am Jewish and know the Burton family. So back in your box.

  19. Poor old 17:36 you really do have not only a problem but a several chips as well. I am sure that Sir Anthony will love your blog.

  20. a Lithuanian connection, 15.16

    This means that Cllr Cockell (a fellow traveller) has almost certainly been shooting in Yorshire with the Coates

    However country life does not suite Pooter - his body shape cant handle tweeds
