Let’s get this straight: The Tory politician who tried to hold a council meeting about the fire at Grenfell Tower in secret – and had to resign because of the ensuing row – is now advising businesses on how to work with councils?

The man who, as leader of Kensington and Chelsea Borough Council, allowed firms to get away with putting dangerous flammable material all over a housing block is now offering advice to firms on how to get what they want?

Does anybody else think it would be a bad idea to associate with him at all?

Still, it does show one thing:

Tories have no shame.

Nicholas Paget-Brown, the former leader of Kensington Council, has set up a consultancy service for organisations who wish to work with local authorities.

Paget-Brown, who was forced to resign last month in the wake of the council’s response to the Grenfell Tower disaster, has set up NPB Consulting.

According to his LinkedIn page, the company offers “policy analysis, seminars, briefings and drafting assistance”.

    This is what sets many Tories aside from the rest of the population, their sheer effrontery and belief in their entitlement. It led to their downfall in the London borough where I live and 30 years of a LibDem council still going strong, and a LibDem MP for the last 20. Memories go back a long way when it comes to Tory “You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours,” approaches, especially when time and time again you don’t see any change in attitude.

    i can only think his short negative spell on TV makes him believe he is now a marketable celebrity and after dinner speaker. This hyphanated muppet might go down well with other similar manned Conservative Councils but there hopefully will be no takers from Labour Councils. Any public funded organisation that hires this PR disaster should have their details taken for wasting public money. Unfortunately these failures are sold as how not to do it opportunities ie learning from their total incompetance.

    Well, you know what they say: “failure is the best teacher”. On the other hand, they don’t say “Failures are the best teachers”. any right-thinking firm would laugh in his face.
