CLLRS BORWICK AND GARDNER STEPPING DOWN FROM ABINGDON WARD

Two excellent and hard working councillors are stepping down as Abingdon Ward councillors.
Farewell to Joanna Gardner and Victoria Borwick.
Hardworking
Intelligent

They are to be replaced by a sort of shoo-in, Sarah Pascall, presumably not unrelated to the deeply unpopular Cllr Pascall and an Ann Cyron.
Cyron is a Trustee of the utterly hopeless Westway Trust and when she is not doing that promotes booze sales. 
She is even a partner in a US based vodka brand! 

The Dame wonders whether she will try to cuddle up to the Dame by sending over a case of firewater.

Still, Anne with all her expertise in flogging booze, will have some clever marketing ideas. Let's hope she doesn't try to shift 'product' into the Mayor's Parlour.....

The Cyron call of booze

Sarah Pascall, a big wig in the K&C Conservative Association, clearly had the inside track so anyone trying to push themselves were doubtless quickly disposed of.




The by-elections will be on May 5.

  1. So we now have someone whose advertising skills are about promoting spirits.
    Quite inappropriate as a councillor

    1. The selection/election was a stitch up. Piggy decided who he wanted and forced Pascall and Cyron on Abingdon Ward. They will now sit alongside one of the laziest and useless Councillors ever(James Husband)

    1. Why is Sarah Pascall calling herself Sarah Addenbrooke? Beware small time schemers

    Borwick and Gardner. Two outstanding Councillors who have worked tirelessly for their residents over many years. Their phones were always on, at any time of day or night, their dealings were always polite and interested, and they made a huge difference to the lives of many struggling to resolve problems.

    A big thank you to these two ladies.

    Dame, you need to do some digging about Sarah Pascall. Her husband Cllr Will Pascall is the underwhelming member of the Planning Committee and they rent out their house to pay school fees. The lady has been frothing around the Conservative Office for too long and residents need assurance that these "insiders" are up to the mark.

    Piggy is building a nest of obedient poodles. He stuck Palmer into Queensgate Ward and Faulks into Campden Ward. Two of the most unfortunate nominations and selections ever. Piggy even turned up to the Campden Ward selection and told Tories present how to vote. The result, Faulks, is a walking disaster. Norland Ward was thrilled to see the back of her.

    1. Cllr Moylan has told friends that he is not in the least surprised by what is going on. "Feeble Leaders create feeble administrations" is the bon mot this month from he who never was.

    2. Supporter of Moylan11 April 2016 at 23:03

      The Tories of Kensington and Chelsea shot themselves in the foot when they passed over Danial in favour of Cllr Paget-Brown. A comfort solution that is ill equipped to deal with contemporary challenges.

      Delete
    3. They would have shot themselves in the head if they had elected Moylan

  7. Huge temperatures and pressures around the shortlisting of candidates which was "fixed" by Piggy. Local activist Lloyd North put his name forward but was barred from standing. As a result, dozens of Conservative Party Members have resigned from the Conservative Association in disgust.

    North clearly has a local following in Abingdon Ward and his training and service as a trolly dolly equips him well for the daily grind of listening to residents and dealing with their problems. So this could be a big loss for Abingdon Ward - party members did not have the chance to choose.

    Piggy needs to understand that democracy is a bottom up exercise - not a top down fix.

    1. Was Cllr Borwick pushed?

    2. Who is Lloyd North? I've never heard of her. Is she famous?

      Delete
    3. Supporter of North12 April 2016 at 08:01

      Lloyd North is a sterling resident of Abingdon Ward who has spent many years as an active member of the Conservative Association, has put his name forward or stood for the Council during the last 10 years, has succeeded in his chosen profession, and demonstrated beyond doubt that he wants to serve the residents of the Royal Borough as a Ward Councillor.

      This is just the sort of person who should be joining the Tory back benches in Hornton Street. A thoroughly charming and caring person and a worthy successor to Cllr GArdner and Cllr Borwick.

      Instead we have two airhead candidates (Cyron and the other one who is not even sure what her name is). Swelling the ranks of the ruling party with more Fieldings and Palmers and Campbells and Faulks.

      God help Kensington and Chelsea.

      Delete
    4. Piggy is the champion of the "lowest common denominator". This helps his personal confidence.

      Delete
    5. Can Lloyd North stand as an Independent?

      Delete
    6. Isnt Lloyd North the guy who likes to flash his willy about?

      Delete
    7. Once you stand as an independent your political party credentials are in shreds. He would not win in Abingdon but would lose all chance of ever being selected by the Tories again. Lloyd is a loyal Conservative member.

      Delete
    8. Like all of us, Lloyd North's private life is just that. Private. So long as he conducts himself with dignity and discretion and does not break the law then there is absolutely no reason to suggest nasty things.

      John Whittingdale MP conducts his private life with his Miss Dominatrix squeeze with utter sensitivity and affection. And he is a Cabinet Minister.

      So will all the Lloyd North critics just shut up and crawl back under their stones.

      The one we need to shout at is Piggy for passing over a prospective candidate who may be the best Councillor that the Tories never had.

    I have been taking soundings about the very strange shortlisting of Ann Cyron who wants to be important. A strange person with strange habits. And even stranger qualifications for a Ward Councillor.

    2. The Dame is meticulous about properly coiffed hair and she feel Miss Cyron needs to look after her personal appearance. As the dear Dame is wont to wisely say, " Its those first appearances that count'.
      Come on Madame....with greasy locks like that you will not impress some of the Dame's snooty friends in the ward.

      Readers have asked us to point out that the Cllr Campbell referred to above is the airhead Cllr Elizabeth Campbell ("Holland PArk School cost nothing") and not the highly respected Cllr Barbara Campbell.

  9. It does not matter that these ladies will do nothing, after all, it is not as though a whole Council estate is being demolished in Abingdon Ward and all the residents being socially cleansed out of the borough. This is presumably good riddance to the poor of Abingdon.

    When two Ward Councillors resign at the same time in a three Councillor line up, it is important to consider what the new "team" will look like and how they will support each other and develop together.

    Comments on this blog suggest that the selection may have been based on criteria that have little to do with creating the best resident team. Let us hope that this is not the case.

  11. Young females from the liquor store, and also polluted by the Westway Trust, have no business trying to represent the gentle folk of Abingdon Ward. Boozed up Westway types know not the first thing about life, its problems, comfort and solutions. Piggy is playing a very silly game.

  12. Hard to think that these two can step into the Borwick/Gardner shoes. Not a chance in hell.

  13. Another sad day for the Royal Borough. Pygmy Tories tampering with democracy.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yes it is a sad day, Cllrs Borwick and Gardner will be greatly missed? There is of course an alternative to voting in these shoo in's as there are 6 other candidates, and maybe it would be good to have a compatriot to support the 'applauded' Linda Wade. Time to shake up Hornton Street?

    1. Bovill (UKIP) has credentials and has been around for a while. Not a fair weather person like the Tory candidates Cryon and she who does not know her name (Ms Addenbrooke Pascall).

      Vote Bovill and put a fox in the chicken coop.

      Delete
    2. Ms Addenbrooke Pascall thinks she is being clever by using the Addenbrooke name so that she is placed at the top of the ballot paper. This is the kind of low level intellect that should scare the shit out of voters.

    3. Bovill appears to be a decent cove

  15. Does Cryon have a family resemblance to Cllr Weale bin?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Or the good people of Abingdon might wake up out of their vodka-induced torpor, smell the coffee and reject both Tory shoo-in cannon fodder. What K&C needs are strong independents who are capable of taking on the Pyongyang-esque Politburo

  17. Cllr Gardner was an excellent councillor, approachable and diligent. A great loss. Like other youngish tories recently, she's probably given up in despair.

    On the other hand Bovill would be an excellent councillor. He's as sharp as a needle and stands no bullsh*t. It would be great fun for residents and who knows? He may even be able to break the rotten mould.

    1. Bovill would be an excellent addition to the Tory stronghold of Abingdon Ward. Residents need Councillors of quality, not party fodder like Addenbrooke/Pascall and Cryon. Lets hope the people see sense. We have already been denied Lloyd North

    2. I put Borwick 9 out of 10. Gardner 8 out of 10. Husband 3 out of 10. Pascall and Cryon are in the 1 out of 10 category.
