Indirectly responsible for this site existing having reigned over a network of lies, deceit and incompetence in connection with a road redesign that adversely affects me daily. According to a local newspaper he personally intervened to ensure that a local resident who had offended him was put to an unnecessary extra expense of £550. Imposed a near tripling of residents’ parking charges while refusing all requests to justify the increase with detailed figures.

Famously, his home telephone line was the source of on-line obscenities posted to the web but he denied he was responsible for them. Bexley police, the council’s Chief Executive and the Crown Prosecution Service met to “resolve his situation”.

Offender against the councillors’ code of conduct. Twice censured and made to attend training courses. Excuses her aggressive tendencies by claiming she is not a councillor when not on council business.

Reported a blogger for comments made on Twitter but exaggerated them very considerably. Blogger found guilty because of that gross exaggeration of the documentary evidence. These exaggerations were repeated from the witness box at a successful appeal hearing. No action taken on perjury.

Leader of the Council
Chairman: Top Management Review Panel
Chairman: Constitution Review Panel

After the former leader, the disgraced Ian Clement, abused his expense account and council credit card, various Freedom of Information requests indicated a massive cover-up including an email giving instructions on how to hide things from the auditors. Teresa O’Neill refused all requests by those pursuing the truth to meet them or otherwise respond to their enquiries.

Reported this blog to Bexley police and provided a totally false story to justify it. Bexley police responded and as a result fell foul of an IPCC investigation. No police officer was disciplined and no one was charged with Misconduct in Public Office.

Deliberately ignored the Data Protection Act 1998 by authorising the publication of personal information of residents she didn’t like on the council’s website.

Protected land behind her own house by leaving it designated ‘Educational Land’ long after a school no longer required it. It was therefore not considered among other parks for possible sale.

Dishonest at every level.
