My attention has been drawn to a sweetly naive rebuttal by young Rocky Feiling Mellen, stepson of the Earl of Wemys and March.
It appears in the Inde in response to the paper's lucid exposition of the gulf between the rich south of the Royal Borough and the utterly deprived north.
Reading Rock's nonsense makes one realise that he really shouldn't be allowed out on his own!
He says TMO tenants are a happy bunch..mmmm. He obviously didn't read the 240 comments in the Hornet slamming the corrupt and useless TMO.
Rocky owes his job as deputy leader to Sir Merrick Cockell. Sir Merrick, being of lowly stock, loves the idea of consorting with 'the quality' so he ensured Rocky was forced upon Nick Paget Brown.
One loves Rocky's bit about the North.... 'it is also a lively, creative, and very desirable place to live: it is a great example of a mixed community, where people from different backgrounds rub along together......'
One assumes he means all his edgy, arty friends from Bedales loving the idea of living with the frisson of extreme deprivation: after all, we all know artists need a bit of deprivation to produce their best work.
He should try bringing his family up in a mould infested, damp flat in Trellick Tower.
