In the meantime our council is busy plotting ways to save money by cutting back on essential services for impoverished taxpayers in northern parts of the Borough. The Dame has always said how fortunate we are to have a man of the integrity of Nicholas Holgate at RBKC...we wonder how the poor chap must feel at being forced to sign off on these vulgar displays.
Morally, there is no justification for this extravagantly ostentatious nonsense. This is not, however, a matter of politics...it goes beyond the trivia of politics. The Dame knows that some Conservative councillors feel horribly embarrassed and wonder about the moral values of the leadership. We have a council bereft of common decency...but then, with a leader such as Merrick Cockell, there can be no great surprise.
|HOLGATE..A MAN OF INTEGRITY|
In New York Cockell happily spent £400 of our money, on a dinner for two, with the convicted fraudster, Ian Clement....so why would he baulk at wasting £1million or so on some stupid street party?
Readers should call their councillor and demand to know where they stand on the amoral profligacy of the Exhibition Rd 'street party.'
The Dame looks forward to some interesting feedback.
