The party is over for these Chelsea toffs

Issue No. 2304

London nightclub Public—a favourite haunt of the capital’s toffs—is to shut down after locals said the poshos were puking everywhere.

The Chelsea club’s owner is Guy Pelly, a friend of Princes William and Harry, and his pal Howard Spooner.

He says it’s an example of anti-toff prejudice.“They are anti-public school people,” he moaned. “They are just against anything they see as a bunch of toffs partying.”

But even the police had to admit the rich kids were the “number one crime generator” in the area.

Residents in nearby assisted housing had complained to Kensington and Chelsea council about late-night vomit and public urination.

Spooner said they “should be ashamed of themselves”—the residents, that is.

But there’s some consolation for Prince William. He is set to inherit Princess Diana’s fortune when he turns 30 next month.

It was £12 million when she died—but has been invested since and grown to a massive £20 million.

He plans to buy a mansion.
