Dearest Dame

Hope you are well and enjoying the weather, the sort of weather that gives a lady like you the excuse for a very large G&T!

I am writing regarding Earls Court Conservative electoral material that came through our door back in February 2018. It has been promoted [signed off] by Andrew Foster Chairman of Kensington, Chelsea and Fulham Conservatives. 

The material claims that “During the [Earls Court] demolition phase, we worked hard to obtain independent analysis on the dust to reassure many who were concerned about whether it could affect residents’ health." 

This does not actually say they got independent analysis on the dust just that they "...worked hard to obtain independent analysis" but also does not state if the dust is hazardous to residents health.

As you know the HSE suppressed their report on Earls Court and never released it;  in the interest of full disclosure Andrew Foster and Malcolm Spalding either need to release their report on the dust in Earls Court before the local election or state categorically that they do not have a report on the dust.

There are concerns Earls Court Conservatives have been less than honest on their electoral material especially as in 4 years Cllrs Spalding and Aoaune did nothing to assist residents when Keltbray worked 6 days a week including Saturday mornings and nights, with no let up for residents. 
The dust is still present in residents' homes, gardens and cars but residents have not heard or seen of this report they have speak of.

All the best

Those of us who were around Chelsea in the '60's will remember the special place it was.
Over the decades the heart and soul of the area have been ripped out.
King's Road is now desolate and dreary.

One of the few pieces of old Chelsea left are the Chelsea Houseboats....but for how long?
The new owner, a nasty ex-City boy, called Andrew Moffat and his social climbing wife, Charlotte are using every stratagem to evict the boats and redevelop the area.

Here's a pic of Charlotte
Charmless Charlotte: wants to kick out boat owners

He and his mysterious investors need stopping.... You can read about it LINK

This Saturday, between 1.00 and 2.00 pm the gorgeous Felicity Kendal will be welcoming protesters on Dovehouse Green.


The Dame will be dropping in and wants to see as many of her friends and supporters there as possible.

Moffat MUST be stopped in his greedy tracks.

Mr. Stallwood's planning department was well aware that once people saw the gross and abhorrent nature of these monstrosities there would be uproar: that's why the planners decided not to include an image in the application link.
An outrageous abuse, Mr. Stallwood!

PLEASE follow the link and make your comment. 

A Monster On Her Streets
       Dear Dame
The residents of Slaidburn Street kindly request your urgent help to challenge the InLink Planning Application, BT have lodged with RBKC.

BT propose to install a huge 3 meter tall free wifi, telephone charging unit on Kings Road at the end of Slaidburn Street.  This huge unit is proposed on a tiny bit of Worlds End pavement in-between two betting shops.  Local residents have suffered from every kind of antisocial behaviour over many years thanks to the betting shop "Book Ends" at the entrance of Slaidburn Street, attracting every kind of problem imaginable.  We can only think this free wifi will be a magnet to exacerbate the existing problems.

Anyone Hornet readers inclined to view the planning application and make comments would be most appreciated.  We will endeavour to keep Worlds End free of InLink advertising


Thank you.

Hi Dame 

You rarely seem to beat up Labour so how about informing your readers of what the Times is saying about Labour and the election?

Here's the link to the damning article. 

Makes me sick to think that a political party is exploiting human misery in this way.
If Labour or Lib Dems were in charge the situation would have been no better managed.

Everything rotten about our Honours System is reflected in the knighthood given to Sir John Timpson.
Timpson, builder of the eponymous chain found time with his late wife to foster over ninety children. 
More than that Sir John gives many hours of his time visiting schools showing teachers how love for a child can be the springboard for its success.

A great man

So, the interesting question is this....

Why did a man blessed with so many talents end up with a meagre knighthood rather than a place in the Lords: after all, in Sir John we have a man who has practical experience in helping children from damaged backgrounds understand that everything is possible.

Sir John could have been the voice in the Lords for unheard children everywhere.

An example of the rottenness of the system. 
The Government has appointed a nonentity leader of Wiltshire CC to advise our Council on how to manage Grenfell.
A Dimwit
The Dame hears from various sources that Baroness Scott(call me Jane) is a total dimwit and her contribution to the Council has been to regale councillors with her management style. 
Evidently, she is very proud that cleaners at County Hall refer to her as democratic she is!
Just think, unless the Dame had put a stop to it, the silly Pooter Cockell would be in the Lords grabbing his tax free £300 a day.

 Dearest Dame,
I was sitting quietly ‘supping’ a pint in the Phelps Arms when I happened to overhear a conversation between three earnest-looking young of them seemed to be the senior of the group and I heard  him referred to as Cllr Palmer or be honest there was a bit of a din so I may have it wrong.

Anyway, this tall, odd-looking fellow was holding forth to the others and claiming that come May he would be a member of the RBKC Executive Team.

According to this Palmer chappie there has to be a group meeting after the election and all the well-paid jobs will be ‘up for grabs’.

Palmer says that his friend, Cllr Mills is going to put herself up against Cllr Campbell and will be bound to win.

Madame Mischief
One of the others asked how could this be possible.
The councillor chappie said with a  smug smirk, “ well when we de-selected all the old guard we got rid of all the Campbell supporters and replaced them with our own people....ok, they are a pretty dire bunch but they will get voted in and in gratitude they will support my friend, Julie. As I helped Julie with the selection process she has more or less promised me a plum job. 
I might even become deputy leader”.

I have to say Cllr Palmer/Palmeira’s chums seemed nonplussed at the idea of him as deputy leader but I suppose this particular pig might fly!

Anyway, Dame, I can promise you that’s what I heard.

PS I also heard that Cllr Moylan regrets standing down and is looking to see if he can squeeze someone out.....

Yours very sincerely

A nobody

One of the Dame's super talented friends applied to the K&C Conservative Association to stand as a Conservative candidate at the May elections.

Now, this is a man who has attained much in business and academia: someone whose brainpower one would have thought useful as the Council debates how it will get itself out of the mess it's in.

When the Dame asked her friend how he got on with his various interviews he replied, " I don't know; I never heard back" !

As disgraced boy loving ex mayor and cllr, Barry 'Filthy' Phelps was prone to say, " you could not make it up"

The good question is why Sutton Estate has never been included in the Conservation Area.
The Dame suspects there were some dirty dealings to allow Affinity Sutton-now Clarion, to play the property developer.
Sutton is well loved by residents and its neighbours. Leave it alone!



We ask that RBKC Council extend the Chelsea Conservation Area to include Sutton Estate which is under imminent threat of demolition due to the Planning Appeal by Clarion Group (formerly Affinity Sutton) which begins on 9th May 2018. The preservation of the Sutton Estate is strongly supported by The Victorian Society due to its fine architecture, historic value and its contribution to the Chelsea Conservation Area. 
Furthermore, RBKC has given no explanation whatsoever for why the Estate was not originally included in the Conservation Area, since all other buildings of that period are, and as a result remain protected from demolition.
