They are blessed with a couple of very strange characters....
The first, Cllr Matthew Roundell Palmer was about to lose his seat in St Charles ward so begged then leader, Cllr Sir Pooter Cockell, to let him do a 'chicken run' to the safe seat in Queen's Gate.
Palmer is known for the the creation of a website called Council Skills. Sadly, it closed down being so full of spelling and grammatical errors that users were left mystified.
They were also shocked by Council Skills links to sex sites which seemed to have no relevance to training councillors.....
The picture below shows Matthew holding a petition. Sadly, the petition got the names of Tesco and Sainsburys muddled so all 2,000 hard sought for signatures were declared invalid. You can read all about it HERE!

Matthew's co-councillor is the celebrated Cllr Daniel Moylan.
Danny is known for his ability to amass a fortune in taxpayer funded allowances.
At one point his income from allowances well exceeded £160,000 a year!
No wonder he is a rare sighting in Queen's Gate....far too busy to waste time on the hoi polloi of the ward.
Daniel has such a cut glass accent that even Prince Charles said, "he makes me feel very common".
However, there is a major difference between the two....Danny has a brain...Matthew does not.
