10 September (Part 2) - Living dangerously

I should probably have said yesterday that my three Labour Councillors were not alone in expressing their concern at Wednesday’s involuntary car chase, a Conservative Councillor did so too. In fact he or she had suffered something not altogether different, but giving such credit to Conservatives presents difficulties. Will an association with me blight any aspirations to political progress that they may have?

Almost inevitably my favourite (former) MP also sent a sympathetic message.

And full disclosure; I spoke to Danny Hackett (Independent, Thamesmead East) while waiting for the police to arrive and he offered advice as to what to do if the police believed Singh’s fairy story. They most definitely did not.

Another supportive message indicated that accusations of photographing children are becoming the norm among certain wrong-doers.

Moving on to something lighter - I think - I am asked to spot the common factor connecting the Woodman in Bexleyheath, the Nordenfelt in Erith, The Potion Bar also in Erith, the White Horse in Welling, Ye Olde Leather Bottle in Belvedere and the Drayman in Bexleyheath.

That’s an easy one to answer; they all look to be public houses and I must have personally brought about their downfall by never entering any one of them, some I am not even sure where they were.

Another mischief maker suggested I look at Planning Application 20/00296/FUL. I did. It refers to 2 Holmhurst Road, Belvedere, DA17 6HN which has permission to be a House of Multiple Occupation (HMO).

The application form bears a familiar name and address. Do I dare to stroll by one day?
