17 October (Part 2) - Bexley council criticized by leading Conservatives

Daniel HannanDouglas CarswellIf these men look familiar it might be because you have seen them on TV. On the left is Daniel Hannan who is Conservative MEP for South East England famed for several speeches delivered to the EU in Brussels and Strasbourg. The second is Douglas Carswell who is Conservative MP for Harwich and Clacton. Together they run a website called Direct Democracy with the aim of “promoting the idea of localism and participatory democracy within the United Kingdom”.

Somehow (†) they have stumbled upon Bexley council’s anti-democratic stance on… well almost everything really. They have decided that Bexley council’s announcement that they will ignore any petition calling on them to discuss top salaries is beyond the pale. “Do they not realise how bad this looks?”

Probably not. Link.

† OK, time to own up. We at Bonkers HQ did it.
