11 August (Part 2) - Little fibs but far too many of them

It is not only nationally that false claims are made, in Bexley it is almost the norm. The age old one is that Bexley has been London’s top recycler for 16 years. It is close but it is not absolutely strictly true. At various times in various categories Bexley has been beaten by Bromley, Harrow, Hillingdon, Kingston, Sutton, Kensington and Chelsea and Richmond. In some ways it is a statistical fluke that favours the borough and compared nationally the whole of London is poor with Bexley lucky when it gets to 50th place.

It’s only a small fib but there are so many of them. Covid has thrown up another. “Leading the way” is the new dubious claim.

Bexley. Beaten by Bromley.
