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”.

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.
