This is the moment for a clean sweep in every way.
The Dame hears that some naive members have been seduced by the rhetoric of failed ex councillor, Jonathon Read.
They need to think hard-and again.
In Earls Court, Read was cordially disliked.
The arrogance of his ways eventually led to him being turfed out.
Do we really want, as chaiman, a man so hopeless, he cannot even keep a council seat?
Hardly much recommendation for a man who boasts of his campaigning skills.....
There is really only one intelligent choice as chairman and that has to be Councillor Julie Mills.
Clever, personable and genuinely nice, Julie will be the sort of inspirational leader the constituency needs.
As usual, the Dame's 17th cent ormulu mounted telephone has been trilling away.
It's the Usual Suspects all trying to gain her ear and persuade her to back them.

First off, young Feilding Mellen. Sadly, the Dame had to brush him off with a 'come back in several years time when you have learnt judgment and how NOT to alienate ordinary people'.
Then a very bombastic Danny Boys Moylan telling the Dame how clever he was.
The Dame had to remind him of how the past would so often came back to haunt one....
Pooter Cockell has still not called.
Were he to do so the Dame would be forced to remind him his expenses record and love of money would not auger well.
Clearly, the choice needs to be a 'quality' local political personality with a track record in 'local' local government.
Let's hope the right choice is made: it won't be too difficult.
