To end the week Pooter had to read that traffic warden, Hakim Berkani-aided by public spirited Chelsea resident, Alasdair Seton-Marsden-won his claim for unfair dismissal after he stood up to contractors NSL over their draconian policies on the streets of Kensington and Chelsea. The story has become news-not just in the UK, but internationally. And the Dame has just heard it on LBC. It does demonstrate how important whistleblowers are in exposing the corrupt secrecy so embedded in the culture of the Rotten Borough.

Mr Berkani reveal that wardens were forced to issue 10 tickets a day.
He said he and his colleagues referred to NSL as 'Ali Baba and his 40 thieves'
The civic minded warden claimed he was harassed and eventually dismissed by NSL bosses because he preferred to warn drivers they had parked illegally rather than simply give them a ticket.
The judge, Jeremy Burns ruled Mr Berkani had been wrongly sacked for opposing contractor NSL. NSL operates in boroughs across London, including Westminster are now in a very difficult position. Far more difficult is that facing the Rotten Borough.
Extracting as much money from road users is Pooter Cockell's lazy and morally questionable way of topping up the coffers. In doing so he and "Boys Moylan can continue to build 'follies' like the £30 million Exhibition Rd. Time to fire NSL.
