Bexley is Bonkers

I've always been aware that if I fall asleep on the train and miss my Zone 2 stop I'm likely to wake up in Bexley, a sort of terrifying maze of millions of 1930s bungalows and privet hedges. I've never really thought it had a council, believing perhaps it was run as a sort of colony by the Daily Express, but it seems not only does it have a council but that council has some serious questions of real substance to be answered about the activities of its officers and members.

A local blogger is facing jail for being very rude about one of them (HT Fausty). The whole affair looks in need of a much wider airing; it looks at least as though the courts have been misled. Time for some daylight on the whole affair, I think

A good post Raedwald...OC has been shamefully treated and we should all be worried for none of us are safe or immune from state harassment...with each passing day this country becomes more and more authoritarian and unpleasant...

The low-grade, low-intellect people now ruling us seem to have no vision at all. Hockney.

Bexley/Sidcup has form as a rotten borough.

First they returned Edward Heath to Parliament.

The they chose Derek Conway.

One arsehole walks away, and then they choose another one.

I thin there must be something in the water there.

I doubt the Boy has time for this stuff. He's too busy pushing his EU credentials.

It would appear that the court was suitably fixed, and he was found appropriately guilty.
Goodbye freedom of speech (again)

And they want access to all our web page visits and emails etc? But don't worry, they will only ever use this snooping facility on terrorists...

Send a written complaint about all this to Bexley Council. They will prob ignore it but getting lots of letters from all points of the UK will upset them anyway.You need to do so before you then put in a complaint to the Local Govt Ombudsman.

"put in a complaint to the Local Govt Ombudsman"

A quick check on the antics of this bunch of worthless bureauprats shows them to be possibly the most ineffective and compromised "regulator" ever... Essentially their purpose is to burn some extra money before anointing the misdeeds of their municipal cnony crew with official "nothing to see here" approval.

Complete and utter waste of time - period.
