THE DAME MAKES AN OFFER....

The Dame has been name checked in this very good piece in the Standard.
You can read it HERE



MOTLEY NON LOCALS



With her new found celebrity status The Dame is contemplating putting her name forward as a candidate.






She will certainly have a body of support amongst the Knightsbridge widows.

The Dame is preparing her CV and invites all the other candidates to send their 500 word 'pitch' to the selectors for publication on the Hornet.

  1. Fascinating detail. Pity residents have no say in the process.

    However, word from the bookies is: a certain V Borwick is the strong favourite.

      Support for Borwick and the rest will wither away if the Dame throws her hat into the ring

  2. The only serious contender who can do this job for local residents is Victoria Borwick. Cameron and his gang should stop trying to control everything they know nothing about. How horrid of the Standard to say the Dame is catty she is the truth sayer without whom the politicians would be unaccountable.

  3. Obviously the pot is boiling. Excellent.

    What a different picture to the one presented a week ago at the Conservative Association AGM when the diminished Association Chairman, Lord Mathew Carrington replied to a questioner that "the whole selection process will mainly be carried out by Central Office".

    As we now know the Dame has been stirring furiously and her friends (including Tebbitt and Jenkins) have written stinging and withering articles in the press about the inappropriate conduct of Central Office. Even Conservative Home took up the cause on behalf of the Dame and furious bloggers up and down the country have told Central Office that "enough is enough". Kensington is the latest of a long list of constituenecies where local activists feel that the current centralism is completely out of keeping with the times. "It never happened in my day" according to Lord Tebbitt.

    Long live the Dame

    1. What on earth does the Eton set in Conservative HQ think they are up to? Has no one told them that feudalism ended 500 years ago? Kensington is not "the gift" of a load of chumps who do not know the price of milk.

    2. PALMER do not pretend to be WASP with your bad spelling of "Tebbitt" and "constituenecies"

  4. This is a well researched feature by Joshi Herrman, a young reporter on the Standard. Watch out, Simon Jenkins!

  5. I find it quite shocking that all of these TV presenters, with no political experience and no evidence that they care about anything except themselves, are being talked about as being candidates for the special job of representing the people. Tony Blair had his cronies but Cameron is taking things to a new level absurdity

    1. Cameron is trying to run the country with focus groups and he is running the election with American sociologists. He thinks that celebrities will get votes which is the only thing that interests him because he is very keen to stay on at No 10 and play with more focus groups.

  6. It is not for nothing that the Dame's blog is called The Hornets Nest

  7. The picture entitled "Motley non Locals" is exactly that. "motley".

  8. It's likely to be a reference to parti-coloured garments. In 14/15th century Europe it was fashionable to wear garments made of two colours, divided down the middle. Men even divided their beards and dyed each half a contrasting colour! Unlike today, fashion filtered down from the highest in society. Clothing was immensely expensive. So wandering groups of entertainers made up their costumes from whatever brightly coloured, but necessarily mismatched old clothes they could find. Following a common pattern, the expression spread from the garments to those who wore them.

  9. Well, they are certainly a mismatched and gaudy bunch. What makes these people believe they have the qualities needed to spend years serving their constituents?
