Rock Hugo Basil Feilding-Mellen (known in
Ladbroke Grove as 'Cock Wielding Felon') organised the bash
The Tory councillor who oversaw Grenfells
refurbishment has been slammed for throwing a
star-studded party at his familys country pile
weeks before the horrors two-year anniversary.
Rock Hugo Basil Feilding-Mellens 40th birthday
bash saw a whos who of socialites and stars
descend on Stanway House in Gloucestershire,
including actress Rosamund Pike and John Lennons musician son Sean.
Photos on social media showed millionaires
rubbing shoulders at his mums 5,000-acre
Jacobean manor as families prepared themselves to
commemorate the tragedy that killed 72.
Grenfell United, the survivors and bereaved
families group, said: Seeing these pictures is like a gut punch.
We are no closer to justice, yet people that
should be answering questions for the deaths of
72 people and the devastation of our community
are living without consequence. Its disgraceful.
Because of what was done to us there are 72
birthdays we didnt celebrate this year and two
children who never made it to their first.
Edward Daffarn lived in Grenfell Tower and almost lost his life in the fire.
He said: It makes me feel like I did when
reading the following quote from the Great Gatsby
by F. Scott Fitzgerald: they were careless
people...they smashed up things and creatures and
then retreated back into their money or their
vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept
them together and let other people clear up the mess that they made.
A source who revealed the party had taken place
said: Im just appalled at the arrogance of
these people revelling in the run-up to the Grenfell anniversary.
There are seventy-two people wholl never have another birthday.
Moyra Samuels, of the Justice 4 Grenfell
campaign, said Rock Feilding-Mellens decision to
hold a party with his rich and famous pals just
three weeks before the two year anniversary of
the fire showed he was morally bankrupt.
She said Hes quite indifferent to the impact
that such a thing might have on a grieving and
quite sensitive community. Hes oblivious,
continuing to act as if it is of no consequence that 72 people died.
He lives in an elite and removed world, and
always has, even though he was he was based not far from the tower.
Hes been raised, nurtured and brought up with this entitled attitude.
It comes as no surprise, but it is indicative of
the fact that actually people like him who were
involved in the council at the time of the fire
and made some serious decisions that influenced
what happened are still continuing to act as if
it is of no consequence that 72 people died.
They think this should not change their lives,
and they will continue to indulge.She added:
You would have thought this would be a time to
show some sensitivity and some subtlety.
Moyra, a teacher, said as the inquiry into the
fire dragged on slowly the community felt justice
was being denied as key decision makers like Mr
Feilding-Mellen moved on with their lives and escaped sanction.
She said: Every aspect of the procedure of
justice and truth has been thwarted, in all sorts
of ways, by a ruling, privileged elite who
indicate to this community and, quite frankly,
the rest of the country, that they dont have any shame in them.
Fielding-Mellen did not comment when approached by the Mirror.
Mr Feilding-Mellen was deputy mayor of the Royal
Borough of Kensington and Chelsea during the
refurbishment of the tower, and was the chairman of the housing committee.
He urged refurbishment consultants in 2014 to reduce costs on cladding.
At that point £300,000 was cut from a £10 million
budget and now-banned flammable aluminium panels
were to be installed, rather than the zinc
cladding which was originally planned.
After being elected to Kensington in 2006 Mr
Feilding-Mellen became deputy leader in 2013 and
took a seat on the powerful major planning development committee.
In 2015 he warned that the councils housing
redevelopment programme would need to be
completed with no recurrent cost to the general council taxpayer.
After news of his involvement in the Grenfell
refit emerged he was forced to flee his familys
£1.2million Kensington home in the wake of the
fire, fearing for his familys safety.
He stood down as deputy mayor of the borough
after the fire, and left the council at last years local elections.
Days after Grenfell, in 2017, he told friends he
was cancelling plans to visit Stanway House for
the 30th birthday of his step-sister Mary
Charteris, who is a model and member of the band The Big Pink.
Those who did go to Marys party included Cara
Delevingne, actor Jaime Winstone and aristocrats
including Scarlett Spencer-Churchill.
Mr Feilding-Mellen, known as Rocky, is the son of
Amanda Feilding, the Countess of Wemyss and March.
He is the great-great-great-grandson of the
seventh Earl of Denbigh and a direct descendant of the Hapsburgs.
Amanda Feilding is an outspoken critic of drugs
policy, and campaigns on the benefits of LSD and cannabis.

'From South America, where payment must be made
with subtlety, the Bormann organization has made
a substantial contribution. It has drawn many of
the brightest Jewish businessmen into a
participatory role in the development of many of
its corporations, and many of these Jews share
their prosperity most generously with Israel. If
their proposals are sound, they are even provided
with a specially dispensed venture capital fund.
I spoke with one Jewish businessmen in Hartford,
Connecticut. He had arrived there quite unknown
several years before our conversation, but with
Bormann money as his leverage. Today he is more
than a millionaire, a quiet leader in the
community with a certain share of his profits
earmarked as always for his venture capital
benefactors. This has taken place in many other
instances across America and demonstrates how
Bormanns people operate in the contemporary
commercial world, in contrast to the fanciful
nonsense with which Nazis are described in so much literature.
So much emphasis is placed on select Jewish
participation in Bormann companies that when
Adolf Eichmann was seized and taken to Tel Aviv
to stand trial, it produced a shock wave in the
Jewish and German communities of Buenos Aires.
Jewish leaders informed the Israeli authorities
in no uncertain terms that this must never happen
again because a repetition would permanently
rupture relations with the Germans of Latin
America, as well as with the Bormann
organization, and cut off the flow of Jewish
money to Israel. It never happened again, and the
pursuit of Bormann quieted down at the request of
these Jewish leaders. He is residing in an
Argentinian safe haven, protected by the most
efficient German infrastructure in history as
well as by all those whose prosperity depends on his well-being.'
