His gripe? They hardly spent any time there.
Here's the irony...
Until recently, 'Scooter Boy' was Head of Asset Allocation at Coutts. He 'exited' in April and no one can tell the Dame why.
Ironically, Marshall's job was to advise the international super rich on where to stash their cash.
Would he have advised them Prime Central London was a great place to buy property? Obviously; after all K&C is a safe haven for these people.
So his comment to the Standard is really rather odd....
“The combined effect of overseas investment into property within the Royal Borough is to increase prices while decreasing the number of households who reside here,” complained Quentin Marshall, chairman of the council’s housing and property scrutiny committee."
Imagine the conversation with one of Quent's Russky clients, the obese and greedy Mr Grabalucansky, " Boy, I have a spare billion and I wanna buy some of your K&C real estate just in case I need to make a runner. Good idea?".
Quent: "Oh, yes sir, an excellent idea. Around Harrods is a very good bet".
