The Dame hears of fury in 1a Chelsea Manor Street.....
'Mayor to be' Maighread Condon-Simmonds has taken the unusual step and asked highly regarded Labour councillor, Robert Atkinson, to be her deputy mayor.
Apart from the fact that they both worship at the Servite Church in Fulham Rd- and live close to each other, they appear to have little else in common.
But Atkinson,is a kindly soul.
He realised Maighread was struggling to find a Conservative councillor to take the poisoned chalice....and, being the gentleman he is, made himself available.
