larger or justified text and now that that fault is fixed I am not going to
spend much time on a blog. I bring you instead Olly Cromwell’s video from last Wednesday’s
Public Realm meeting. I should perhaps point out that I and my immediate
colleagues play by the rules at council meetings and don’t go beyond
investigating and reporting on what we believe to be a thoroughly disreputable
council but we fully recognise that for some it is too leisurely an approach.
Sometimes the alternative approach is more revealing as with this video in which
councillor Linda Bailey (Danson Park, £22,615) tells the world that she “can do
what I like”. Those few words neatly sum up Bexley council’s entire attitude to
Press the central Play button to start the video. I believe the audio is deliberately masked until after the police have finished with the tape.
