Occasionally blogging entails a whole load of behind the scenes work and at
present there is a rather large backlog of correspondence to send to various official
bodies; the Information Commissioner, the Government Ombudsman, the Met. Police
Directorate of Professional Standards and the Independent Police Complaints
Commission. The IPCC are already looking into the issue of
Form 9993 (Harassment
letter) by Bexleyheath police and their failure to abide by their own rules. I sent
off a relatively easy to write addition to my case this morning.
I attach a file obtained under FOI in which the CEO of Bexley council, Will Tuckley, asks 'Dave' to take action against me for making two statements.
You will note that the first is a metaphor which I took from another local blog and the second is a statement which I was on record as saying was not a good idea.
I would like to know why, if the first was considered a threat, the police ignored the primary source of the statement. I suggest it is because Bexley council were intent on silencing a critic and in reality saw no physical threat.
In the case of the second statement I would like to know why I was not asked who the original comment came from. I suggest it is because Bexley council were intent on silencing a critic and in reality saw no physical threat.
On both issues Bexleyheath police merely did the council’s bidding with no attempt to investigate Mr. Tuckley's malicious complaint, nor did they comply with Met. Police Standard Operating Procedures or even pay the slightest regard to them.
