Bexley Council - Still a bit Bonkers


Malcolm's Masterbations

The above blog extract illustrates how Bexley Council’s Dirty Tricks Department reacts to criticism and the photograph is a metaphor for what the borough police commander has so far done about it. The visit to Bexley Civic Offices to which the blog refers was known only to Bexley council and appeared on the web within hours of the visit. The obscene blog could only have been created by someone closely associated with Bexley council.

It has been reported from several council sources that the Head of Member Services has been off sick following these events. As neither the police nor Bexley council are willing to reveal the true author of the obscene blog it leaves the one man who definitely had the requisite information to write it as the prime suspect. It is typical of Bexley council’s attitude to staff that it is content to leave one who may be entirely innocent in an embarrassing position.


• 20 May 2011 : Register of Members’ interests inspected by arrangement with Mr. Chris Loynes, Head of Member Services.
• 21 May 2011 : Obscene blog posted by Bexley council or its associates to Google blogspot.
• 6 June 2011 : Complaint about blog reaches council leader Teresa O’Neil and Chief Executive Will Tuckley.
• 6 June 2011 : Blog content (but not default page) removed from Google blogspot.
• 9 June 2011 : Bexleyheath police issue crime Number 3906909/11.
• 14 June 2011 : Unsigned letter from police saying investigation requires services of a data specialist.
• 23 June 2011 : Enquiry to Detective Superintendent Darren Williams seeking progress report.
• 5 August 2011 : Two local MPs, including the Minister for Justice, put pressure on police.
• 10 August 2011 : Commander Stringer sends assurance that crime is being investigated seriously.
• 23 August 2011 : Unsigned letter from police saying investigation has been abandoned.
• 25 August 2011 : Telephone enquiry revealed that the case has been marked ‘RESTRICTED’ (to prevent names of guilty parties becoming known).
• 3 September 2011 : Enquiry to Borough Commander Stringer to ask which is correct. His letter of 10th or the unsigned one of 23rd.
• 16 September 2011 : Response from D.S. Darren Williams which conflicts with the letter of 23 August. Left hand doesn’t seem to know what right hand is doing.
