22 November (Part 3) - James Cleverly. Out of order again

James CleverlyThis man, James Cleverly, is the Bexley and Bromley member of the London Assembly and Chairman of the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority. The Authority that has just proposed the possible closure of the Bexleyheath Fire Station. I think he is a bit of a hypocrite.

Exactly a year ago today Mick Barnbrook of the Bexley Council Monitoring Group asked him, and I was barely two feet away, if he read Bexley is Bonkers and he said no because it was “Well out of order”. A bit rich coming from him.

In 2010 James Cleverly said that Liberal Democrat MP Simon Hughes was a “dick”. I have reason to believe that James is right but if he thinks that Bonkers is “Well out of order” is he any better?

BBC report on the incident.

TweetHe has not grown wiser with age. He got into a slanging match over the Fire Service cut backs with another South London blogger last month.

No sooner had that died down and he libelled fellow GLA member Andrew Dismore. Andrew decided what he sent went well beyond political rough and tumble and threatened legal action. After an initial refusal to climb down James Cleverly grovelled.

News Shopper report.

Who is well out of order James?
