|ALL ABOUT ROCK..CLICK ON IT TO ENLARGE|
There is nothing a social climbing surburbanite like Pooter loves than mixing with 'The Quality'......he just loves a Lord!
Maybe he is expecting Rock's stepfather, Lord Wemyss, to invite him for a week or two of stalking?
In pursuit of his lofty social ambitions Pooter takes huge risks.
One such was placing 16 year old Rock on the Major Planning Committee!
The Dame already reported how Boy Rock leapt up demanding a Section 106 school in the midst of the the discussions on the Exhibition Centre. Lucky Capco boss, 'Fats' Gordon was not present....he doesn't take that sort of lip from juniors!
Fortunately, lazy old Paul Warrick was sufficiently on the ball to put the young whippersnapper back in his box.
The Dame decided to take a look at some of Rock's non council activities.
Rock works for a company going under the name of Socially Conscious Capital....(no... they don't give money away)
In his personal blurb Rock stresses the value his councillor work brings to Socially Conscious Capital....
The Dame thinks Rock is not dishonest: but cynics might wonder what the hell a member of the Cabinet and the Major Planning Committee is doing being involved in property development and advisory. Interesting to note see that his partner is ex Montague Evans. Many of their partners went on to form DP9- now advising Capco....yes, it does get a bit incestuous!
Too much potential conflict...not just her opinion, but that of many of his fellow councillors on all political sides...deal with it Pooter!
