The Dame is used to insults but really....!!
Nice motor: £45,000

Mr Quirke, who now runs the Rotting Borough called the old thing up with the most impertinent of questions...

The thrust of it was this. 
"Dame, I saw you in your rather pretty Armstrong Siddeley motor car. 
I have decided that the Bentley, so cherished by ex Leader Cockell, is surplus to requirements. 
Would you know anyone in the prestige end of the motor trade who might give us a good price?
Only 10,000 miles and one careful owner"

How dare if the Dame would know anyone who bought and sold motor cars.

Dear Dame,
Earls Court residents are very quick to be ticketed or have their cars towed by wardens for parking close to Paladin bins so why so slothful when commercial vehicles like Leyland SDM using to park in residents spaces all day to promote and advertise their silly 'discounts'.

Is it wise for Leyland SDM to alienate SW5 customers by parking in their spaces.  Why should residents be constantly targeted whilst commercial vehicles get off scot free? 

Maybe Cllrs Spalding, Wade or Aouane should have words with Leyland's CEO Andrew Urban on behalf of Earls Court residents. 
Mr Urban's company  has just been fined £450,000 after four workers at the head office were seriously hurt. 
Not what you might call a public friendly company!
Earls Court resident


Dear Dame
I have known Emma Dent Coad for a decade.
I have total admiration for her commitment to residents even if that commitment doesn't stretch to her politics.

As far as being a good councillor is concerned her record is unblemished.
I have also met Shaun Bailey and had little time for him. He's a loudmouth and an opportunist.
Cool Shades!

Frankly, there has been bad blood between Dent Coad and Bailey for years. Dent Coad saw him as a 'bandwagoner' but there is more to it and this is not the place to dwell upon that.

Why does Shaun Bailey bang on about being a British Afro-Caribbean? What's the point?
Bim Afolami and Kwasi Kwarteng don't talk about themselves as being British-Nigerian or British-Ghanaian. 
So, if these MP's don't why does Bailey feel the need?

I am deeply suspicious of the man and his motivations. I can quite believe he came up with ghetto tag himself thinking it might enhance his chances of cozying up to Cameron.

Politics is a filthy business made filthier by silly insinuations.
One thing I can be sure of is that Emma Dent Coad doesn't have a racist bone in her body.

Kind regards

Charlie Boorman filmed this scene in Campden Hill Rd of a gang of moped 'weaponised' muggers blithely waving at Boorman as he filmed.

Why is it we always wait for events to get out of control before we act.
The totally useless, Amber Rudd, needs to do something fast. The solution is so simple that even lawless South American countries have adopted it.

Moped riders, without exception, should be forced to wear hi-viz jackets with their name and registration number on the back. It works in S. America: it will work here.
If you are found not be wearing one the police can stop you and impound your moped.
Come on, Amber, you dimwit....get on with it!


Truly excellent resident associations are hard to find. 
If you live in the Milner Street, Chelsea you are very fortunate. 
Because the Milner Street Resident's Association will be battling to preserve your quality of life.
But organisations like MISARA don't just happen; they need enthused members to maintain their dynamism and effectiveness.
Lord Lexden
Guest Speaker

Sadly, the old Dame lives beyond MISARA's boundaries so she is not able to attend the upcoming AGM. However, she reads with great interest the annual newsletter. 

St Simon Zelotes

It's well written and thoughtfully analyses the various issues the Association has dealt with over the year.
It's also well worth reading for the more general information about the area.
Here is a link to the NEWSLETTER 

The Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday, 23rd November at St Simon Zelotes Church @ 7.00pm with a party after the meeting. 

Please do come along if you live in any of these street:
Clabon Mews, First St,Halsey St,Hasker St, Lennox Gardens and Mews, Milner St, Moore St, Ovington St, Rawlings St, Richards Place and St Catherine's Mews.

Yesterday, the Dame had to visit the Customer Service Centre at the Town Hall.
She passed the Freeman Suite named after a former leader, the saturnine and corrupt, Nicholas Freeman.
The next leader should remove all trace of this man; a disgrace to the Royal Borough.
Anyway, the Dame was there to renew her resident parking permit.
You can see her below with the Armstrong Siddeley.

What struck the Dame was the helpfulness and commitment of the junior and mid-ranking staff. Councillors and senior officers should remember they are supposed to be setting an example.

What these junior and mid/ranking staff must think of those above them does not bear thinking.
This is why the next leader must be someone of stature and probity.


What a crass idea to invite the sneering George Osborne to address the Courtfield Ward Association next month.
Greedy Pig
The Dame has a good mind to join the Association so she can come and heckle him.
Osborne is a thoroughly nasty piece of work and is no doubt charging Cllr Lindsay tens of thousands of pounds for his spiteful words.
The mark of a good ex CofE is what happens in his afterlife
It seems the sardonic Osborne has to rely on the financial support of a former enemy of this country, the ex KGB agent, Mr Lebedev. The worst thing that ever happened was allowing these shady people into our country.
Weird Russian Lebedev

How humiliating to end up as editor of a freesheet.
The Dame would have paid millions to have been present when Mrs. May gave the little bugger his marching orders.

The Dame is never afraid to publish and rarely moderates comments, Mr. Carter so is happy to accede to your request. 

Dear Dame, 

You often seem unwilling to critique the sitting member for the Constituency or her predecessor so I hope that you might publish my observations.

Will Jeremy Corbyn withdraw the Labour Whip from Emma Dent Coad MP and suspend the Kensington's first Labour MP from the Party for making a racist remark?

Emma Dent Coad MP was interviewed by Vanessa Feltz on BBC Radio London. She tried to claim that when she described Shaun Bailey, a Black Conservative Politician, as a "token ghetto boy" she was only repeating what people in North Kensington had actually said to her. She stated that the offensive comments that she passed on in a blog was made to her by a Black Afro- Caribbean Grandmother. Surely, a Member of Parliament should know that a racist and offensive remark is a racist and offensive remark regardless of who utters it. I am pleased to say that Vanessa Feltz was having none of Emma's attempt to justify her malfeasance by saying that she was conveying a "narrative" and the offensive comments from her pen were in  "quotation marks."  It was particularly unedifying of Emma to attempt to apologise by saying  that if Shaun Bailey is offended by what she said, she apologises. Vanessa Feltz had to point out to Kensington's first Labour MP that it is not  a question of "IF Shaun Bailey is offended, he has said that he IS offended." Emma should know that apologies should be unconditional with no ifs or buts; no one is impressed by backhanded apologies.  

It strikes me that Emma Dent Coad would do better if she were political, not personal. Hating people just because they are Tories is the childish stuff of Neil Kinnock's 1980's Labour Party where Labour supporters could not just oppose the Tories they had to hate them as well. No wonder Labour was unelectable in those days. It would be better if Emma criticised people's politics by presenting a diametrically opposed point of view in order to win the argument. Denigrating one's political opponents by passing on nasty remarks made to her at street level is not the best strategy. 

Emma repeated in her blog that people described Shaun Bailey to her as a "free-loading scumbag"  "the most hated man in North Kensington" whose "public school buddies would drop him like a hot potato." I hear that Emma Dent Coad sent her children to a fee paying, independent, school -  others have said that it has the status of a public school.      
Kind regards, 

Shane Carter
