This, from the Kensington Society, was sent to all councillors.
Appropriately, it was sent out on Bastille Day.
The letter raises historic questions.
Kicking Nick Paget-Brown is all very well BUT.....
....the rot set in when Merrick Cockell became leader. For twelve long years Cockell, or Pooter as he is known to his very few friends, ran the Cabinet as if it were a Masonic lodge.
Standing up to Pooter meant banishment to the nether regions.
The fact that he was notably thick besides being deeply unpleasant was another major obstacle.
The Dame believes change is not possible with the current Cabinet system in place; the KS and ALL residents associations need to campaign for two innovations:
* Reversion to the Committee System to kill off the rotten current system
* Encouragement of Independent candidates to stand at next year's election
They might also think of putting up their own sponsored candidates.......
The Dame and friends have identified nine candidates ready to stand on independent tickets.
There are sitting councillors who are picking up £13,500 for doing bugger all.
It may seem little but if you are doing little it's jolly nice!
