7 August (Part 1) - Arresting Sidcup’s downhill slide

Waitrose petitionWith Bexley council in close down mode until October, councillors giving their surgeries a miss, even going to the trouble of moving house to avoid their responsibilities, I found myself reading through the Waitrose petition while scratching around for news.

There’s about a dozen councillors’ names on the on-line petition and a good number of pleas for Waitrose to do Sidcup a favour by coming to town. I’m not sure that painting Sidcup as a run down hell-hole as some petitioners do and then begging John Lewis to help dig it out of the mess is the right strategy, but each to his own. Presumably some of the entries were more than a little tongue in cheek.
