Bexley Council has appointed a Managing Director to its in-house property developer, BexleyCo. They
issued a Press Release earlier today that revealed that he is Huw Lewis.
A Google search suggests he is not Huw Lewis who was a member of the Welsh Assembly until May 2016. Nor, I would guess, is he the Huw Lewis who lectures in politics at Aberystwyth University. He is probably not the Huw Lewis who teaches languages at The University of Edinburgh either.
My money is on him being the former Tory politician who was a Cabinet Member for Corporate Issues in Aylesbury Vale District Council in Buckinghamshire. He unexpectedly lost his Buckingham North seat in 2011.
That makes him a sort of Cabinet Member Don Massey equivalent.
If Aylesbury Vale Council is not as devious as Bexley a considerable culture shock awaits Huw in his new job.
