The Dame is a bit of a party animal....a few glasses of mediocre Chilean wine and some 'finger food' and she tends to get 'over the top' as her vile nephew Ludo describes it.
Last night she barged into the Mayor's Parlour to take part in the Mayoral Awards for outstanding residents.
Her plan was to personally congratulate Ian Henderson, the Inde candidate at the last election....and, more importantly, a driving force behind CATS and an award winner.
So wasn't it all peace and light?
|ANGRY LITTLE ECONOMIST|
One funny little economist was far from being in a party mood.
The Dame was astonished to hear little Warwick Lightfoot deliver a most terrible bollocking to the amiable and somewhat puzzled Ian Henderson.
Now no one is accusing economist Warwick of being uneconomical with the heady Chilean wine but.....
He started off his rant by berating Henderson accusing him of 'not knowing the damage he had done in running in the election'.
The inference in all of what he had to say was that little 'locals' had no business opposing the sitting councillors and that they should 'know their place'.
Henderson sought out the Dame for some consolation. He told her it had never been his intention to go into politics, but had been driven to it to ensure Sutton Estate did not become a target of greedy property developers.
And, of course, being chairman of CATS that is his responsibility.
Ian attempted to explain to angry little Warwick that he had been exercising his democratic rights and explained he was being presented with a mayoral award for service to RBKC and the Sutton estate.
The still fuming Warwick scuttled off to the canape area for some comfort food....and a glass or two...
Fortunately, it seems that Mr Batten of UKIP has been getting up close and personal with Sutton residents,filling the vacuum left by the disinterested Cockell, Pascall and Warrick.
