COUNCILLOR PALMER SNEERS AT SCRUTINY COMMITTEE

The Dame has decided to publish this email from Justin Downes....




Dear Dame

I hope the parents of Notting Hill Prep read and digest this comment from Cllr Palmer.

"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"

I make an allowance for the fact this comment was made by the near certifiable Cllr Palmer, but it does underline the contempt for democracy clumsily encapsulated in this oafish comment.
Cllrs Paget-Brown and Ahern have been clear in their determination to listen to residents: something the 'ancien regime' run by Merrick Cockell disdained to do. 
I like to believe that Cllr Paget-Brown and Ahern are honourable men. 
It is a great pity that their colleague, Cllr Palmer, scorns their idea that residents should have a real say in how their council is run.

The warning signs are all too clear.

In Chelsea we already know that a trio of independents are examining their options ahead of the May elections.
Comments, such as this one, by a senior Conservative councillor, will do nothing but fuel the rise of resident focused rivals to Conservative councillors, out of touch with their grass roots

  2. Best not refer to Palmer as a "senior Conservative Councillor". Palmer is only "senior" in having the odd senior moment.

    1. "Sad bloggers"!!! Well the dear old Dame and her merry bloggers have had quite an impact on the life and times of Hornton Street - including getting rid of the odious Phelps (the art appreciator) and the self obsessed Cockle (friends to New York dinners on the Council Tax)

  3. I read it in the comment section on the last blog. We all know a Palmer comment when we see one

  4. on the basis of this comment we should all send an email to palmer demanding that he resigns from the council. cllr.palmer@rbkc.gov.uk

  5. What a silly comment from Cllr Palmer - clearly having one of his "bad mornings"

  6. The Hornet does a great service allowing residents to scrutinise the rantings of Councillors like Palmer. An opportunity for voters to draw their own conclusions

  7. Palmer has replied saying he never made any such remark, I pointed out that it was on the Hornet and he has said.

    As far as I know, the Hornet is written by pedophiles, wife beaters, and lying Labour Councillors. Read what you like, but do take the time to check facts before you believe them. Thank you for contacting me.

    1. Palmer is an inveterate liar....as for paedophiles was not Cllr Palmer a good friend of ex Cllr Lamont, convicted of possession of child pornography of the most vile kind. Equally, he liked to share a joke with ex mayor and Cllr Barry Phelps. Phelps was thrown off the council for sending images of young boys, with sexually suggestive captions, to all friends, using the RBKC server and laptop. It was the Dame that got him booted off.
      Long live the purifying Hornet

    2. Mathew is a very confused boy with a persecution complex. He also likes to take pics of unsuspecting subjects

    3. a perv then......

    4. So, 11.23, did Palmer really send you that, from his own email or Cllr email? As he's made exactly the same comment 'anonymously' I think we have him by the short and curlies.

      Taxi for Cllr Palmer!

  8. Could someone please explain why Cllr Palmer says Hornet is run pedophiles

    1. Spelling! Cllr. Palmer is that you?

    2. Such a silly boy. He sets a rumour running, then asks questions about it himself. In much the same way, a fellow Councillor said that he has been known to leak information so that he can blame it on someone else.

      He thinks this clever, which says it all really!

  9. No one knows....it's a fixation he has had for years: neither he, nor anyone else knows why. He never produces evidence, nor for the wife beater!

    1. So lying Labour councillors is true !

    2. If the Dame can prove it comes from the Inspector's Council e-mail address then this should be reported to the Council's Monitoring Officer, the Town Clerk and Cllr. Paget-Brown. He clearly thinks he is fire-proof since the Dame caught him share dealing at the last Council meeting - after he was exposed at the previous meeting.

  10. Cllr Palmer is quite correct. Scrutiny is pointless in a Council with an overwhelming majority which will NEVER change. Councillors should stick to what counts to resident, pavements, crime, dog excrement, anti-social behaviour, and which school you children can get into.

      Dear Mr Walker
      You have previously posted under this pseudonym and we discovered that there was no one of your name on the electoral register for Dalgarno Gardens.
      We know you to be Cllr Palmer. Is it too much to expect that you should focus on helping residents rather than pursuing childish games.

    2. more lies from the dame Mr Walker is real but I suspect the posting is not from him. Perhaps the dame would like to meet up with the St Charles Ward Councillors and they will introduce him to her.....

      Cllr Palmer....the Dame does not deign to meet mere local councillors: she is far too grand. But, if Mr Walker exists, but yet confirms he did not write the comment then he is clearly as barking mad as you!

      And please upper case D when writing of the Dame...

  11. The Independents will have a field day with this . The odious contempt this man has for the electorate is there for all to see. Perhaps the other ' lost cause' us bloggers should focus on is putting some independents in place of the current regime. Let then see Councillor Palmer 'whine'. Why do The Conservative let this dolt loose - is he secretly working other side - agent palmer.

  12. They have such disdain for the electorate that they aren't even embarrassed in going public with their contempt for the democratic process. Time to say good bye to this rabble.

  13. I despise Palmer and regret having to confirm that over this matter at least his comment is valid.

    I twice had to complain to RBKC's elected members' scrutiny committee about the behaviour of certain senior conservative councillors. It was a good deal of work and a waste of time. I concluded that short of catching a colleague with the bloody axe in hand, the committee would never find fault of any kind.
