ANOTHER RESOURCE FLOGGED OFF....CHEYNE CHILDRENS CENTRE TO BE SOLD TO HIGHEST BIDDER

ANGRY FATHER!
Cheyne Childrens Centre is about to privatised.
This will be another blow to local parents.
Currently, they pay around £50 a day. 
If the centre is privatised the rate will soar to £100 a day: well beyond the resources of most,
You can read all about it here in a 2012 piece in the The Standard

  1. I suspect that people living off the kings road can afford £100 a day nanny care

  2. The wealthiest borough in the UK sells off everything that provides support to the last remaining ordinary Londoners in K & C. Doubtless the cash is needed to throw down the black hole that is Holland Park Opera.

    RBKC is truly rotten to the core. It's high time all natural Conservative voters gave their local vote to another democratic political grouping. If possible the Kensington Residents, but votes for any alternative party will send a message to Hornton Street.

  4. Parents need to accept that children are expensive before they decide to have them. For too long "free state handouts" has been the name of the game. And the worst offenders have masses of children in order to claim benefit and end up MAKING MONEY from having children. It is a disgrace.

    Well done K&C. Parents should pay market rates to have their sprogs looked after. And if they cannot afford it then they should not have kids. Tax payers are fed up subsidising the unworthies

    Cllr Paget-Brown got this one right

    1. I agree: we should stop spending Council Tax on anything to do with the needs of those who pay the tax. We should stop all street cleaning all those boring services like inspecting restaurants to make sure we don't get poisoned etc. And with money we save we could repave the entire Borough in Chinese granite...and how about having outdoor operas throughout the Borough. You 18:56...if, the Dame will forgive me, are just such imbecilic arsehole

  5. Have you taken leave of your senses? Your claim that people MAKE MONEY FROM HAVING CHILDREN is pathetic. I sincerely hope that for their sake, you are childless and remain so.

    By your logic, you will never be sick or need the help of younger people to look after you in old age. You will not need a state pension, which is funded not from your contributions, but the taxes of the young. Nor will you feel the need for police, fire services or UK defence forces. All such services are almost entirely made up of young people - who began life as CHILDREN - as presumably did you.

    1. 18:56 can't take leave of something like senses: he doesn't possess them

  6. What a silly set of comments. Council Tax should be spent on services that EVERYBODY uses such as clearing dustbins, health and education. Tax should not be used to redistribute wealth to those who choose optional activities like having children. It was widely reported in the media that Abu Hamza had nine children and collected housing benefit and child benefit allowances of £6348 per month. If these free handouts were not available I doubt if he would have been breeding in this fashion. And it is by no means an isolated case. So get back in your boxes. All of you.

    1. Don't be puerile
      Most of the users are hardworking taxpayers who are not well paid.
      What on earth has Abu Hamza got to do with residents who pay national and local taxes and are happy to pay £50 a day or so, but are not happy to pay £100
      The Dame should ban you for being a crashing bore

    2. All of Hamza's sons, in their early teens and twenties, have been to jail. We paid to raise them, we paid to house them and we paid to jail them. Ridiculous.

  7. Children are not a luxury. The Japanese have insufficient children to replace a rapidly ageing population. Same for the Italians. It's economically disastrous. We NEED well cared for and well educated CHILDREN to develop into well balanced and productive citizens of a progressive, democratic country. It's the duty of the public at large to provide the funds to support all the services necessary to ensure this desirable outcome.

  8. The Hornet in its true colours. A Socialist blog. All bollocks. The welfare state needs to be cut back. People need to make choices and pay for what they want. Including paying for their children if thats what they want

  9. 8.01 has failed to read the comments above, and writes drivel. It's in the interests of every human society and the economy for the widest possible sections of the population to receive properly funded services, particularly during early years. As it is in the UK, the outcome of a child's education is effectively fixed at 5 years old; in direct relationship to it's parents' income and education. To cut services to the very young will ensure the UK falls even further behind its international competitors.We cannot return to the 19th century to save council tax.
