21 December - Belvedere’s very own skating rink - click image for photo gallery (1 image)

Ice from kerb to kerbA recent Tory leaflet said “Lesnes Abbey has been taken for granted by Labour”. Very probably but the Conservatives have been no better. Politicians spout words and line their pockets but actually do nothing useful. If they did we might not be at a virtual standstill due to the lack of road gritting. There have been no postal deliveries since 17 December and I’m not surprised; it was difficult enough to walk to Abbey Wood station this morning without having a load of mail to carry. There was barely half an inch of snow in the low lying parts of Belvedere but over three days it compacted to a kerb to kerb sheet of ice. The loons in charge of Bexley council have spent most of 2009 ruining the environment in this neglected part of the borough and now they are doing their best to ruin Christmas by halting the Christmas mail.

I was in the Socialist Republic of Newham yesterday and their roads were all clear and on my return saw Newham’s gritting lorries out in force. Even the pavements in minor roads were clear; I was told a little machine had been along and somehow rid the paths of snow before it turned to compacted ice as it has in Tory controlled Bexley. And to think I voted for that cretinous crew!
