THE DAME SUCCUMBS.....

The Hornet's Nest took an early decision to avoid commenting on the upcoming election. 
Sadly, even at this very early stage, the campaign has become saturated with lies and offensive comments about a candidate with a superb record of community service.
Mr. Groves challenged the Dame to lift her self-imposed embargo and publish his letter: the Dame succumbs to his challenge!


Dear Dame

Two candidates know the constituency inside out through years of working hard for residents.
Victoria Borwick and Emma Dent Coad have been hardworking and effective councillors for many years:Borwick has continued that as our MP.

Miss Mullin should come clean and admit she has never lived in our constituency.
From what I hear she lives in the depths of Lambeth, hardly a recipe for knowing our patch!

Apart from Linda Wade, the Lib Dems have been a total joke on the Council.
There used to be four now just one: says all that needs to be said about these blowhards!

Annabel Mullin, the Lib Dem candidate has written a letter implying that if you vote for her there will be either no Brexit or a soft one allowing an unrestricted flow of immigrants into our already overcrowded country.

She claims that there is absolutely nothing wrong with the EU.
Talk about having your head in the sand!

It seems her campaign is going to be about just about Brexit. 
As the Lib Dems have nothing else to talk about it's no surprise.

I own a house in the constituency-a modest affair owned for 40 years with a mortgage serviced through much sacrifice and hard work.
If Miss Mullin’s hero, Sir Vince Cable, had his way I would have been forced to pay a massive Mansion Tax or sell up.
Tens of thousands of constituents would have had their lives broken.

Remember this when you consider Miss Mullin.
Lib Dems are just supreme political opportunists: always have been and always will be. 
That’s why in the end people see right through them and kick ‘em into the long grass.

The only authentic  ‘local’ candidates are Borwick and Dent Coad.

Yours sincerely

Thomas Groves

  2. Who on Earth is this creature Mullins? We have never heard of her. Guess not, as she resides in Lambeth and not accustomed to dining at The Belvedere...
    As for Borwick and Coad - dear friends you decide which one is better of the two evils... It is a known fact that a Tory MP is highly unlikely to criticize a Tory Council....

      One doesn't wish to 'put you down' your hole but when you suggest that she is not accustomed to dining at the Belvedere you imply you and your brood are. Perhaps, what you mean is that you and the baby badgers scrabble around looking for bits and pieces which RBKC's rubbish rubbish collection have missed?

  3. Corbyn and McDonnell are probably going to revive the Mansion Tax - and Dent Coad is a passionate Remainer, so will be tarred with the same brush as Mullin. Did the Tories re-select Victoria (a brilliant MP) or did they go for Julie Mills (a strong critic of the present Council? Either one suits me.

I hear she is looking for a place to live in Kensington in the very unlikely event of her being elected. Bit presumptuous? Why had she removed the brackets round her Twitter Account. Please can someone explain the significance of this? Come on Annabel tell us why you have done this?

    I think Miss Mullin should be very worried. EDC is very smart. She will know that the Tory vote is pretty intractable. Even those Tories who are cross about Brexit are smart enough to know that there is F***k all that the Lib Dems can do about and voting Lib Dem as a protest is cutting off your nose to spite your face.
    My view, as an old Transport House hand(yes, I now I am very last century!) is that EDC needs to pile into the Lib Dems.
    Locally, the Lib Dems have done nothing for K&C and their council representation, as Mr Groves says, is down from 4 to 1.
    So that's my advice...give Mullin a good beating up.

  9. Mrs May chose to make this election (held for the good of the country, not the good of her divided party, obviously) about Brexit; repeatedly insisting (make it stop!) that "strong and stable government" will better arm her against a united 27 that - understandably, given her abrasive tactical errors thus far - looks set to give her a deserved good kicking, to this country's detriment.
    To vote for a candidate that - resident here or not - speaks for the 70% of Kensington residents that voted Remain.... or a candidate that backed Brexit, allowing those many (impotent) EU nationals that contribute both financially and culturally to suffer unnecessarily, lives in limbo, while her strident boss cynically treats them as bargaining chips in an ill-fated chess game with Brussels? You decide!

    1. Oh Bore off, the reason we have so many Europeans in the city are multiple, good schools, property to invest in, NHS, evading tax from their homelands.

      Europeans move to Great Britain have increased rent and house prices have forced the locals out of Kensington & Chelsea. Go speak to the shop keepers who are struggling who are begging for customers and been strung out by all and sundry due to this forced exodus.

      I would like to know how many Europeans voted in the referendum who are not British nationals and do not have the right to vote. This would be voter fraud and instant imprisonment.

      Your 70% borough voted for staying in the political union with the EU has no legs, %52 of the country voted leave! That's a democracy if you don't like it go to a European country, there is free movement.

      Maybe you should be asking those Europeans for the money back who owe us from student fees who have scuttled back to the mainland without paying up.

  12. Emma Dent Coad was born in Chelsea as the youngest of six in an Anglo-Spanish family, and has lived in North Kensington since 1986. She has worked on design and architecture magazines for most of her career, and has written or contributed to a number of books. She still writes on occasion for Building Design and local papers, as well as for The Voice on local issues. For the past 11 years she has been a Councillor in Golborne Ward, one of the poorest wards in London. She has been politically active since the age of 15 and is a fearsome campaigner. As Planning spokesperson for the Labour Group she speaks out for all communities facing unwanted development where there is no community benefit.
    Emma says: 'Kensington is a microcosm of everything that is wrong in the country after seven years of incompetent government. In 2014 I proved that RBKC is 'the most unequal borough in Britain'. It sickens me that in a very wealthy constituency we have Food Banks, worsening health and life expectancy, and the return of Victorian illnesses such as TB and even rickets. I see money squandered while residents struggle financially. The police chase super-cars in one area, and knife-wielding gangs in another.
    'I am Kensington through and through and would never stand in another constituency. As your representative in parliament I will speak out for all the communities of Kensington and work for a more equal society. My maxim is #OneKensington, and my personal knowledge of Kensington and its communities, together with my expertise in architecture and planning, will enable me to serve my constituency.
    'We are facing very difficult times with the Brexit negotiations, and like many I am torn between respecting democracy and dreading the outcome for all of us. In a constituency that voted 68% Remain, our MP voted to Leave the EU. This is a situation that I simply don't understand.

  13. Baffled by Dent Coad1 May 2017 at 21:20

    Dent Coad says, on the Kensington Labour website, that she does not understand why Borwick voted to leave the European Union when 68% of her constituents voted to remain. Dent Coad also says that she believes in democracy.

    When Borwick voted in favour of the Article 50 legislation, she gave effect to democracy, by respecting the wishes of the electorate of this Country, and she also obeyed her Party's three line whip. Jeremy Corbyn imposed a three line whip on Labour MP's and he also voted to trigger Article 50, just like Borwick, despite the overwhelming majority of his constituents in North Islington voting to remain. In this situation would Dent Coad break with Labour Party discipline and vote not to trigger Article 50, or would she go rushing off to her doctor to get a sick note to save face and reluctantly turn up to vote in line with her Party at third reading. Or does Dent Coad only believe in democracy when it suits her?

    3. Dent Coad was once a Lady and is a self-confessed member of the upper middle class. But she knows what poor people need, so class is not an issue here. Borwick did not want to style herself Lady but Tory Central Office required her to do so.

  17. Kensington Voter2 May 2017 at 09:30

    I am in a quandary as to where to cast my vote. Not Lady Borwick, as I am a Remainer (now of course a Remoaner). The Lib Dem is not a local candidate. The Labour candidate, although a Remainer, has a volatile personality and is reputed to be difficult to work with; and her Leader Mr Corbyn, surely a closet Brexiter, voted for Article 50. But as she has nailed her colours purely to protecting the poor and I am not poor, this makes it more difficult to vote Labour. Are the Greens going to put up a candidate or have they done a pact with the Lib Dems? I have also heard rumours of an Anti-Brexit candidate, which would probably be my best option.

    7. Shame on Emma Dent Coad8 May 2017 at 16:12

      Dear Dame Hornet,

      I agree with 08.55 above about one thing and one thing only. "The dire state of the TMO today." If Kerr-Bell and Rawlings are responsible for the "dire state of the TMO today" then Emma Dent Coad is equally culpable. She served on the TMO Board for eight long years - nearly as long as Rawlings. Although she was never TMO Chairman, she is a highly intelligent, educated, woman who knew perfectly well what the situation was at the TMO. Corruption, incompetence, and wickedness triumphed at the TMO including the period that Dent Coad was a Director of the Company. Did she call out the situation? As a Socialist, she should have broken ranks and resigned from the Board. By resigning, she would not have been bound by collective responsibility and would have been entitled to dissent publicly- in the press and elsewhere. What did Dent Coad do about the Independent Adjudication Officer's Independent Investigator who unearthed a serious suspected fraud? 10.05 above suggests that maintaining housing owned by RBKC influenced her most. Council tenants are as badly off today as they were when Rawlings was Chairman and if Dent Coad had been less spineless things might be different for those of us who are dependent on Council housing today. Dent Coad was on the TMO Board long after Rawlings left.

  25. Annabel was born and brought up in London and feels passionately linked with it. Annabel is committed to helping improve the quality of life for everyone who lives, works and travels through the World’s number one city.

    Annabel’s expertise and specialism is the criminal justice system, not only does she have explicit practical experience of working with the law and administering it but is also currently pursuing a doctorate in criminal behaviour. Annabel has spent most of her adult life working in Central London whether as a PricewaterhouseCoopers analyst in Holborn, a Met. police officer in Soho and Mayfair, as an assistant psychologist with prisoners with severe and enduring mental illness or more recently as a PhD researcher at University College London in Bloomsbury and as a magistrate sitting in, amongst other places, Hammersmith and Westminster Courts.

    Annabel has worked with the Liberal Democrats since 2008 and is committed to the party. She has a focus on motivating people towards the Liberal Democrat cause, particularly as London is The liberal city. A member of the Lib Dem Security and Liberty Working Group, Annabel’s motivation is providing a visionary approach to balancing data protection but also realistic responses to the needs of criminal justice agencies and the security services.

    Annabel lived in Kensington and Chelsea as a child going to a local nursery and then primary school just off the Kings Road; She then completed her secondary education in Hammersmith. She attended Bristol University, UWE and gained an MSc Psychology from UEL. Annabel now lives in Lambeth with her husband and young children.

    Borwick publicly supported Brexit in the 2016 referendum despite the fact that the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea had a greater proportion of EU nationals than any other London Borough in 2016, with 69% of the Borough voting in favour of Britain's continued membership of the European Union.

    On 8 February 2016 Victoria Borwick voted against seeking to protect the residence rights of citizens of the European Union and their family members who were lawfully resident in the United Kingdom on 23 June 2016.On 19 October 2016 Borwick voted against EU nationals living in the UK retaining rights, including the right to live and work in the UK, should the UK leave the EU. Borwick voted in the House of Commons in favour of triggering Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union (thereby beginning the process of Britain's withdrawal from the EU) by March 2017.Borwick later voted in favour of the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill 2016-17 during its passage through the House of Commons in early 2017. Proposed amendments to the Bill, stating that Article 50 should be triggered taking into account the Good Friday Agreement and the interests of the people of Gibraltar were also voted down by Borwick.

    1. Time to be concerned with British interests not these European tourists avoiding tax in their own countries. Hope they all leave, maybe then we will have cheaper rent and destroy the house prices in the borough.

    Don't be dimwit.
    May offered, months ago, a deal to the EU to enshrine the rights of all expat EU citizens but her offer was kicked into touch by Druncker and mates.
    Are you looking forward to Albania acceding to the EU in 2020? You are going to welcome immigrants from one of the poorest of Euro countries with 50% of the population Islamist and the rest mainly criminal. If you are you have gotta to be bonkers
