GOOD RIDDANCE TO A FAG SALESMAN

Over the years residents have kept the Pooter Cockell family financially by paying him around £120,000 a year. 
POOTER'S FAREWELL DINNER
If that were not bad enough, they have also had to pick up the tab for the mad, King Ludwig style excesses this silly ex cigarette salesman so loved to indulge in....£90 million schools, £30 million repaving projects and his vast and unnecessary expenses.




Tomorrow night taxpayers will have to pick up the bill for his final swan song... a sumptuous dinner in the Mayor's Parlour.

The Dame would normally be expect to attend such an important event, but sadly she has had to decline:it's Strictly Come Dancing on the telly.

Cllr Paget-Brown is a very different kettle of fish and the Dame is pleased to hear continuing good reports from all quarters. 
What a contrast!

STOP PRESS...
The Dame now hears that Conservative councillors will pay to sup with the ciggy salesman. But no putting it down on ex's either, please!

  1. All hard pressed council tax payers hope that this will be the FINAL fling and expenditure on this busted flush and self serving Councillor with the Royal Borough. Cockell is one of those public servants who moved Public Office away from the concept of public service and into the grubby realms of troughing

  2. Not more expenditure on this ridiculous person!! Surely not

    1. "Form" and the stiff upper lip are central to the Tory culture. To a man and woman, those present will utter words of praise and gratitude while quietly thinking "what a two faced celebration". Not a single Councillor is under any illusion about this carpet bagger

  3. When Cllr Cockell assumed high public office he secured prestige beyond his wildest dreams and a platform to promote his interests. Surely that is enough. If his colleagues want to say "thank you and good luck" surely they should be prepared to fork out for the farewell dinner themselves and not burden tax payers with more profligate expenditure?

    An FOI or two will surely be fired off to the Town Hall on Thursday morning

  4. The photo suggests that this will not be a suitable occasion for Cll Moylan. And thank goodness disgraced ex Cllr Phelps is not around.

    On second thoughts, could the Dame advise if Phelps is on the invitation list?

    1. Two dirty old men under a mac surrounded by naked young boys. Not a suitable event for Phelps at all - even if it is "art".

    2. What some Tories consider art some consider disgusting. Just ask another former Councillor with a fetish for particularly feminine body parts ...

    3. Careful! That kind of thing will make you go blind.

    4. The two dirty old men don't seem to find the scene very arousing.

    5. They probably haven't taken their pills yet.

    6. Some are just beyond medical help.

  5. The latest news that Tory Councillors will be footing the bill for this event is most welcome. However, how sure are we that they'll follow through? Our Councillors don't exactly have an exemplary record in paying for their own jollies. For example, I understand the Council Tax payer is still contributing, at least in part, for the slap up meal and booze up after every Council meeting despite previous assurances to the contrary.

    1. Has Pooter's close friend, disgraced ex Cllr Phelps, been invited? And remember that Pooter was also thick as thieves with failed ex Cllr Cunningham.

      The Dame's look outs will be lurking in the Town Hall

  6. In the fullness of time, Tories will ask themselves "how on earth did we manage be hoodwinked by this failed fag salesman for so many years?" History is littered with examples of plausible individuals who take the system for a ride before they get found out. I have just been reading about Bernie Madoff - who reminds me of Lord Hanningfield.

    1. And don't forget Lord Black. But none of them quite so accomplished as the "eight days a week" bus driver's son
