A proposal by Bexleyheath police that the Charcoal Grill in Bexley village should
lose its late night licence because one of its customers was murdered in the
street shortly after buying a kebab has been thrown out by Bexley council’s Licensing
Committee. This irrational idea was
backed by councillor Peter Craske at the council meeting last month. As a
crime prevention measure it looked like desperation, what next, an 11 p.m. curfew?
For the second time this month the man responsible for a sensible response is councillor Mike Slaughter.
Dear Cllr. Slaughter,
I apologise for being unkind about your claim to have been a Bexley councillor for more than 30 years. Experience is valued above gimmicks.
Shh… Nobody mention the Morrison’s shares.
