November’s report on the parking situation in
Blackfen Road has had totally
unforeseen consequences. Motorcyclists following gestapo wagons, a shop worker
splashed all over The News Shopper after Bexley council set their lapdogs on him and given
blog of the week status at Big Brother Watch
and now the hiatus over
Bexley council’s VCA certification.
To celebrate these events and show support for Martin Peaple, the shop worker the police failed
to intimidate, Notomob are sending as many of their members as they can spare to Bexley next
Saturday 14th May. They will assemble in Wingate Road behind the shops in Sidcup Hill from
before 9 a.m. for a photo opportunity (press expected) at 9:30.
The above information is already available elsewhere on the web and I do wonder if Bexley council will react by pulling their cars off the road for the day or perhaps calling on their friends in the police to try to crush Notomob’s entirely lawful activities. You may be interested to know that the number of penalty notices issued in Blackfen Road has fallen dramatically since my visit there. From in the region of 1,500 in 2010 (Source : SETyres customer complaints) to under 500 in the last six months. (Source : FOI request delivered by Bexley council only 12 days late. Recent bank holidays all accounted for.)
