The Finance Scrutiny Committee meeting was notable for one thing. No questions
from Tories and I duly took the mickey out of them.
There was a meeting of the Environment and Leisure Committee last night which I was unable to attend. According to councillor Seán Newman, much the same thing happened again. You can see his conversation with ex-Bexley councillor Grant Blowers by scrolling or clicking the image alongside. Together they put forward alternatives to the present Cabinet system which isn’t working in Bexley because it is abused by leader Teresa O’Neill. Even Tory councillors have misgivings about how she manipulates the system to her advantage. How else would I have emails in my files which tell me how she rigs the rehearsals and refer to FC? (Think Thomas the Tank Engine.)
At last night’s meeting there was a further report on retaining the borough’s historical archives in Bexley. You have to be a very special sort of stupid to have proposed such a nonsense in the first place.
The council’s press release is available on line.
