19 December - A Merry Craske to you too

I took my annual trip to Bexleyheath this morning; went on the 229 bus from Lesnes Abbey, quick and easy. There wasn’t a hint that any gritting had been done for yesterday’s snow anywhere along the route or in and around the centre of town. Later in the day some friends and I went looking for grit remnants along local bus routes but could see nothing beyond the usual accumulation of dirt in the gutters. Now we know what Craske meant when he told the News Shopper he was “flexible” about road gritting. The slippery customer reserved the right to twiddle his thumbs doing nothing while contemplating his £22k a year expenses.

In the main shopping arcade at Bexleyheath the TV screens were showing an advert which said “Merry Christmas from Bexley Conservatives”. You can tell there is an election coming.
