Why was the Dame so trenchant in her demand?
Well, one of her informants had provided her with a series of email images which Barry had sent around to his friends featuring under age boys with salacious captions.
|PHELPS TOOK THIS INNOCENT IMAGE AND CAPTIONED IT TO INFER|
THE TWO BOYS WERE ATTEMPTING TO HAVE SEX. PHELPS SENT OTHER
SIMILARLY VILE AND PERVERTED EMAILS USING THE RBKC SERVER
Cockell did not want to act on the advice of the Dame.
It was only when the Dame informed Notting Hill Police that Sir Delboy Myers overruled Pooter and insisted on the head of Phelps.
So what has this to do with the current Chief Executive, the nice Nicholas Holgate?
The Dame has provided him with irrefutable evidence that a council contractor was selected in the most unorthodox of ways and that the boss of the Compassion contractor, Frameworks4Change, Andy Bradley, is inextricably linked with the sinister Brahma Kumaris cult: so linked that he uses their facilities for training purposes.
But, if Holgate took the trouble to read the copious comments on the Hornet stories he would see that participants believe Bradley to be unqualified and a figure of ridicule.
Councillors should take this seriously....it will not go away and the Hornet will pursue Bradley until the right thing is done and his services axed.
Mr Holgate, you are Chief Executive.
Do your job....investigate and admit a mistake has been made.
