After the meeting of the Scrutiny Committee a Conservative councillor posted this comment......
"More useless crowing in the Hornets. Scrutiny Committees never made a fig of difference to anything. Never did and never will. Hot air from hot mouths and and bad breath. The Committees exist to keep the children occupied.
Ritblats have got their project so there.
All sad bloggers can go and find another lost cause to whine about"
Cllr Palmer will rue his insolence!
The Dame warned that the decision by Chelsea residents to put up independent candidates could be echoed by residents in the north of the borough.
It seems that she was right
Despite their 10-0 victory at the Scrutiny Committee, Notting Hill Prep parents know tomorrow night the Cabinet will cement their deal with the Ritblats.
The Dame hears this group has a potent mix of credible candidates and a mass of cross party support..... and most importantly, from people who have never bothered to vote!
Dear DameI can confirm, that it is the intention of the Kensington & Chelsea Residents Party, to stand candidates in all the wards either side of Holland Park Avenue and selected other wards throughout the borough, where we feel that specific councillors (and in particular the Cabinet) have let down and ignored the wishes of the communities they were elected to represent. We are a new, non partisan party, with overwhelming support, offering to listen and represent the wishes of every resident in every ward. For the first time ever on May 22nd voters in those safe Conservative wards will get a genuine opportunity to get rid of some of these individuals who feel they have a job for life and are happy to ignore democracy.Kind regardsRC, KD, MF and LA(Party, website, e-mail and Twitter details will follow within a couple of weeks - we care about your opinion - enough said about many of the current councillors).
