Naïve and foolish organisations put out bad news on Bank Holidays, so why would the Rotten Borough put out good news on a Christmas public holiday. What a pointless exercise: all it does is excite the interest of the likes of Mira Bar-Hillel, the top ranking property journo.
In July 2010 the brutal Iranian regime put in a design for a new embassy. To remind you of its ghastliness here is the design. 
You won't be surprised to know it found great favour with the Great Architect, Cllr Danny ‘Boys’ Moylan. 
Doubtless the finer design points were discussed over Persian pastries with Cllr Moylan…and officers.

Then utter silence…. not a word from Ayatollah’s man in London, nor the Rotten Borough. Every so often we were told that the application was still in play.
We now suspect that planning officers had been lying and that the application was withdrawn months ago. (The Dame will be pursuing this with an FOI)
So who is protecting this vile regime? Well, it appears the Iranians wanted to save face and appear not to have been beaten off by local residents and that champion of our interests, Mira Bar-Hillel.
In cahoots with the Leader of the Council and the Planning Dept the Iranians decided to withdraw the application sans a big song and dance….hence the decision to bury the news during the Christmas period.
One councillor, Mr Barkhordar, may provide some answers.....

As one leading resident association chairman wrote.....

What is it about this State(Iran) that everyone makes excuses for? I can understand Cllr Barkhorder not wishing his family in Iran to be endangered putting his head above the parapet (as he explained to me) – although I believe he is here to serve the community first and foremost - but what about everyone else?
Is there no one at the Town Hall able or brave enough to stand up to this regime?”


  1. Cllr Bark "without the bite" horder again. Never did rate the guy. And there is no improvement with time

  2. Cockell's administration is getting up the nose of residents, Associations and community Leaders at a rapidly increasing pace. The balloon has to pop at some stage

    Good to see that the Iranian's have been sent packing. Rum lot

  4. Cllr Bark gets worse with time. The Association Chairman is quite right to remind him that his duty is to represent residents. This is not about being puffed up and poncing around at the Mayor's drinks parties. It is about the boring stuff of listening to residents, finding out what they think and trying to help. This is what public service is about. And true public servants get a charge out of serving. Pooter and the poodles seem to have lost sight of this. Of course there are a few exceptions and thank heavens for them. Mills, Dent Coad, Borwick, Husband and Freeman are some names that come to mind.

    1. Oh come on! Since when has being a councillor in the Rotten Borough ever been about serving residents?

      Its all about gorging oneself on the trappings of office, inflating egos and milking the system as much as legally possible.

    2. Cllr Holt is miffed that he has not been included in the list of the Great and The Good
