Doubt is cast on Bexley Council’s allegations against Councillor Maxine Fothergill.

4 February - More Money

The blog below is one of several relating to Bexley Councillor Maxine Fothergill and Bexley Council’s Code of Conduct Committee. This note aims to make it clear that the events reported between December 2015 and the Summer of 2016 whilst accurate reflections of various events, disciplinary hearings and sanctions brought against Councillor Fothergill they are individually insufficient to explain the whole story.

Two members of the Bexley-is-Bonkers team met with Councillor Fothergill at a secret location on 16th September 2016 where she explained to us what had really happened. She was able to convince us that she was the victim of a miscarriage of justice.

There were compelling reasons why Councillor Fothergill should be believed. It seemed likely that the Tory High Command in Bexley had taken revenge on her because Councillor Fothergill had reported one of their associates to the police for theft.

Councillor Fothergill requested that the explanatory note prefixed to relevant blogs (which first went on line a few days earlier) be further strengthened so that readers are fully aware that reported events, whilst accurate at the time, did not reflect her innocence and that Bexley Council’s charge of misconduct and “gaining a financial advantage for herself” was malicious.

This is a modified version of the note Councillor Fothergill asked to be placed here.

No time for anything significant today, the ancient aunt’s immersion heater was replaced but the electrics were judged inadequate. Another day when I shall curse Teresa O’Neill for getting her mate Boris to cancel the Thames Bridge. If the fool had gone for borough growth when first elected the General Purposes Committee might not be voting for selling parks next Wednesday. Anyone who holds out any prospect of a reprieve for Old Farm and the three smaller parks is hopelessly deluded about Bexley Council. Committee members will be whipped and any defaulters will be hauled before the OBE’s (Owns Burrfarm Exclusively) Kangaroo Court.

HandcuffsThere have been an awful lot of interesting developments in the quest for truth regarding the Maxine Fothergill cover up, but there is still nothing to suggest that the old lady’s house sale was anything more than a possible case of Money over Morality but not criminal.

Elsewhere investigations have been more productive but little can be said at present. It may be coincidence but following Mick Barnbrook’s letter to the Chief Constable of Kent, the officer who had twiddled his thumbs for the past year or more has suddenly flown into action.

The police investigation which Councillor Maxine Fothergill initiated against one of her own employees is on the point of collapse because there is no evidence against her. Even more welcome news is that the boot has been transferred to the other foot. Better not say more, don’t want to prejudice anything, but that would make two out of 45 Bexley Tories currently under police investigation.
