13 June (Part 1) - Bexley council - Not listening, not working and now not watching

I meant to go to the Annual General Meeting of The Bexley Borough Neighbourhood Watch last Friday, partly because of natural curiosity about how Bexley council’s grants were being spent but hoping too to find out if my local Watch set up about three years ago was defunct as I have never heard of it doing anything. But I forgot all about the meeting.

James Brokenshire MP was there and “spoke eloquently” according to reports but not a single councillor or other representative of Bexley council could be bothered to attend, it’s not something they would be paid for. The meeting broke up rather prematurely because people were leaving to rescue their cars from the clutches of Bexley council’s recently imposed 24/7 car parking regime.
