WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT ROCK FEILDING MELLEN

No one doubts Nick Paget-Brown is a substantially better leader than his predecessor, the unloved and unlamented Pooter Cockell.
Unlike Pooter, Nick is genuine and, as politicians go, honest.
He is having to undo years of disregard for residents and it's no easy task.
He has another intractable problem....a young and clumsy political wannabe. 
At the time of the last leadership election the Young Turks...Marshall, Mosley et al, decided they needed someone of their age group to balance out the generational bias.
They alighted upon Rock Feilding Mellen and forced him upon Nick Paget-Brown: it was a bad calculation.
The Dame has yet to meet this young man so can only go on what she hears.
His colleagues find him immature and lacking in judgment and residents, with whom he has dealings, find him arrogant and overbearing. 
ARROGANT BOY
But worse, they look at his background and feel he has arrived where he is, not through merit, but because he is the grandson of one earl and the stepson of another.

Nothing wrong with that if you have the abilities-Rock does not.

He has succeeded in pissing everybody off. 
In the north of the Borough he is despised and in the south people ponder what possible qualification he has for leading a powerful Borough.

Sadly, for Nick he is lumbered with this liability.

  1. Mellen is ambitious and has a native cunning. He saw his chance to nail his colours for the leadership next time around and jumped at it by jumping on to the Moylan and Paget-Brown band wagon. It would be interesting to know what share of the vote he got - and also the other two.

    The guy is an opportunist. No problem with that so long as he has ability and can deliver. But seems that anything useful is totally lacking. Just a huge complex to try and do something impressive in the eyes of his old school, mum and step dad. Poor dear

      Don't write the chump off. Coleridge and Ahern, both longstanding Councillors, dearly wanted to be Leader. Coleridge another one with a school and dad (and brother) to try and impress. They could not even find a Tory Councillor to propose them. Not the idiot Mellen was the name on the ballot paper.

  2. Fielding-Mellen is still a boy. Before it is too late he needs to get a proper job where he can demonstrate that he is good at something. That expensive education must have qualified him for something

  3. Three years in steady employment, the first increase in salary and the first bonus. Thats the test of promise. And then the first promotion.Thats the test of ability. Is this a world that Rock can survive and prosper in? We need to know.

  4. Cllr Fielding-Mellen is a successful entrepreneur who is building his Consulting Business in the property development sector. His list of successes and influence is already formidable. And he has a calling to public service which is being pursued in the Royal Borough

    3. You should not make fun of Rock. Every endevour in the private sector has met with defeat. The last being the Norfolk Bumpkins who kicked his sorry arse when he tried to build 'socially conscious' housing in ancient English woodlands.

  5. He's apparently been let loose in North Kensington, destroying long standing working class neighbourhoods in his passion to make money for his developer friends. It's high time Paget-Brown gave the boy a well earned kick up the derriere and replaced him with an adult.
