|A QUALITY AD FOR BROWN'S HOTEL|
It didn't take long for this rubbish to be swirling around our pristine streets.
No, an Art Deco event at Brown's Hotel!
The Paris based organiser of this event has caught out most of the most of the great hotels....the Dorchester, The Mandarin Oriental, The Four Seasons and the Connaught, However,highly embarrassed-and with a sense of civic responsibility,they sent out teams to collect up this disgusting litter.
A resident, noticing that Brown's Hotel featured on the 'flyer', spoke to a Mr Fernandes, the hotel manager, warning him that thousands of leaflets were littering the streets: his response? "We just rented the room'!
So the Dame, out of courtesy, wrote to Sir Rocco Forte asking him how he reacted to this 'marketing activity'.
Just so we know who he is Sir Rocco's headed paper is worded...
"From the Office of the Hon Sir Rocco Forte"
......the poor, old Dame felt distinctly common.....
Anyway, Honsirocco dismissed any complaints... writing, "the exhibitor is a respectable body" and "distributing leaflets on car windows is quite a common occurrence(he is correct about the 'common')
This type of 'advertising' litter hugely increases the workload of the hard working and effective Council's street cleaning teams.
Senior officers are at their wit's end to know how to stop this type of fly posting and one suspects that they will be shocked at the Honsirocco's dismissal of it with such 'gay abandon.'
It's bad enough having our homes flooded with junk mail, without Honsirocco claiming fly posting is acceptable.
The Dame suggests that the banes of our lives are these crude types of promotion and the littering of telephone kiosks with prostitutes cards.
She still does.... and dares Honsirocco to serve his writ!
