4 November (Part 2) - What have the Old Bexley & Sidcup candidates done for Bexley?

TweetIt is not often that I find myself agreeing with Councillor Philip Read but two years ago he correctly reported that Abena Oppong-Asare had been virtually silent as a Bexley Councillor and contributed pretty much nothing to local politics.

As an MP she has presumably fulfilled his expectations as she has mine.

At that time I catalogued every comment Abena had made in Council that provided me with a blog entry; fairness dictates that I should do the same for Councillors Francis and French.

Forgive me but I am going to duck out of cataloguing the rarely silent Daniel. No one is going to check through 225 blogs. Louie French on the other hand scored a more manageable 60.

Someone is going to tell me that Councillor Louie French has taken a keen interest in the local business community (oh! they already have!) which is a claim not without foundation but to most residents his name has probably not registered at all. I would like to be more positive but Louie is one of those Councillors who makes a point of ignoring me. As such it would be hard to support him now even if Boris Johnson was a Conservative and very obviously he isn’t.
