China CK Group owned UK Power Networks puts major squeeze on Peterboroughs Charters Barge restaurant and iconic pub.

STOP PRESS: UK Power Networks, the UK subsidiary of the Chinese CK Group (owned by the 81-year-old billionaire Chairman Li Ka-shing who is due to retire this month, and we all wish him a long and happy retirement. Hopefully as a final retirement gesture, Li will personally intercede to resolve the matter, and might even have an Oakhams Ale named after him. Who knows?)  

The firm has  asked the PBROTRIB to publish the following statement, which we are more than happy to do, and have also discreetly offered the landowner a possible solution:

"As the landowner [UK Power Networks], we were happy to allow public parking for many years. Unfortunately the parking grew to a level which meant that access to our electricity substation was blocked at times, and damage was also caused to a fence. As a result we introduced the security barrier though we still allow public parking on part of the site, as well as access for local businesses, who we have consulted."

Why are the people shown below, currently employed by a distant Chinese power multinational CK GROUP subsidiary UK Power Networks trying to put an upmarket Peterborough Thai restaurant and the iconic Oakhams pub 'Charters' out of business?

Neat touch not one but two padlocks...

( CK Asset Holdings Limited reported a rise of 55 percent in 2017 net profit, beating estimates, after announcing that its billionaire Chairman Li Ka-shing is to retire.
The 89-year-old Li also announced his retirement as executive chairman of his ports-to-telecoms conglomerate CK Hutchison Holdings Ltd, with effect from the conclusion of the annual general meeting which will be held in May ).
Dozens of empty parking places used by Charters for over 20 years suddenly put behind a locked barrier at the behest of Chinese owned CK Holdings subsidiary UK Power Networks.

The CK Group subsidiary UK Power Networks is seemingly trying to put a much loved and valued upmarket Peterborough Thai restaurant and an iconic Oakhams pub 'Charters' out of business? Why? 

Meet Ian Smyth, Director of UK Power Networks Services .....  Ian joined UK Power Networks in August 2016, to lead the Chinese firms commercial division called UK Power Networks Services.

Prior to joining UK Power Networks Services he was  Managing Director at Navigant, a Partner with LCP and a consultant with Ernst & Young.

Ian has a BA(Hons) and an MSc in philosophy, psychology, statistics and artificial intelligence.....

Charters Pub plus the East Thai Restaurant opened in 1991 and all housed onboard an original iconic 1907 Dutch coal  barge, the largest in the UK.

The barge is 616 tonnes, built just a few years after RMS Titanic was launched and employing a like single row hot rivet process.

The Leendert - R  built in 1907 and has worked ever since, ironically the cargo included coal for power stations, it sailed all over European canals and rivers, then heroically sailed over from the Netherlands, by Oakhams Brewery, then sunk to negotiate under Town Bridge, re-floated and rebuilt.   

Its moored on the River Nene, but why is the Chinese CK Group trying to put Charters out of business? 

...but they don't use the it just a device to close down Charters??

UK Power Networks  are slapping 'cease and desist' notices on any Charters customers car that dares park on the empty spaces alongside CHARTERS, indeed its so bad that staff working late shifts, and on modest wages, cannot even park their own cars without the heavy hand of the CK Group Chinese owned power company subsidiary choking the very commercial life out of one of Peterboroughs essential public realm attractions, threatening a number of local jobs and effectively putting Charters off limits to anyone even with a mild disability and reliant on motor transport.

Charters Bar and East Thai Restaurant now effectively denied access - by a Chinese firm CK Group - to many disabled customers or those of limited mobility who rely on motorised transport and cannot negotiate a steep metal stairway from the bridge above

Not a WORD from Peterborough councillors or any practical help for an iconic successful home grown business.

We make no apology for posting on here the names of those CK Group managers who are seemingly responsible for this appalling piece of really bad public relations.  

No doubt when the Chinese Business press and television pick up on how their tiny UK CK GROUP owned UK Power Networks offshoot is brutally handling business, the owners and Hong Kong shareholders might be watching their share price crash through the floor.... 

They might just find themselves denied a UK Power Networks newly gated off parking space, having had to hand back the UK Power Networks company car, and possibly phoning for an appointment with headhunters for their next job?  Who knows?

Basil Scarsella is Chief Executive Officer and Director of UK Power Networks, owned by the CK Group.

and is a Fellow Certified Practicing Accountant.  He is a Life Member of Football Australia and former Member of the Executive Committee of FIFA !!!!!!!!!!.

Editorial policy: WE DON'T CENSOR NEWS, we will however come down hard on lawbreakers, all forms of ASB - Anti Social Behaviour, and anyone or group who seek to disturb or disrupt our neighbourhoods and communities, or in anyway abuse, take unfair advantage or financially disadvantage our citizens.

We support the Park Farm Neighbourhood Watch and digitally carry the messages from this independently resourced Neighbourhood Watch Scheme. A scheme operated following written guidelines to us directly from the Home Office.

We are openly but constructively critical of all political parties (actual and sham), pressure groups, overbearing 'jobsworths' and those who seek to waste public funds, abuse public office, ramp up expenses, BUY VOTES and/or engage in any form of directed or robotic voting.

Whilst accepting that many in Public Office perform a valuable service and make a worthwhile contribution, there are others who are frankly rubbish. Although Julian Bray is the editor, there are several Blog administrators / correspondents who actively contribute by remote transmission to this blog.
