SOCIAL BUTTERFLIES

The glitterati

David West (also known as “Dave West” and “Lord David West of the Manor of Hollesley”, 1944 – 2014)

David WestThis larger than life character loved distinctively coloured clothing, crocodile skin shoes and luxury cars. Romford born David West was a businessman who made his fortune selling tobacco and alcohol to British “booze cruisers” and then bought nightclubs and restaurants in the Jermyn Street area of St James’s. He unsuccessfully hired Cherie Blair to fight the smoking ban in 2007 and took his then girlfriend Joanna Dudzik to court in 2006 to attempt to curb her spending. His son – also named David West – was arrested and charged with his murder in December 2014. “The man in the pink suit” will be greatly missed by many.

  1. Did he support the Find Madeleine campaign? Instead of buying those cars, he should have donated the money to help dear Gerry and Kate McCann find their beloved daughter Madeleine. Why are you not supporting them also?

  2. I remember Lord David West from parties with him and Lord Brian Davidson hosted by Sally Farmiloe-Neville and the likes of Lady Jacqueline Killearn. He was a bit loud and brash but always generous to the core and surrounded by young nubile things. For him to die at the hands of his own son is just awful. May David West rest in peace.

    1. Hiring Cherie Blair to fight a smoking ban, he must have been very high on illicit drugs, it is obvious that Cherie had a conflict of interest, but a Blair will do anything for hard cash. Some mothers do have them. Thank you, to all those still smoking, we have rights too…..
