weeks News Shopper contains the perfect illustration of the sheer wickedness of
Bexley council staff and the evil little runt, councillor Craske. It would seem
that Mr. Felix Akele from Northumberland Heath was misled by Bexley council into
thinking that any contractor could lower the kerb outside his house after he
obtained permission to have a pavement crossover installed. In fact, Bexley
council insists on the contractor being one they have approved but that wasnt
made clear to Mr. Akele. So he hired a contractor to do the job for £600. This
may or may not have been Mr. Akeles fault but whoever was to blame the solution
was obvious. Get an approved contractor to strip out the allegedly substandard
work and replace it with something more to Craskes liking. The work involved
would be the same as working from a clean slate, less perhaps if the
original job wasnt good enough and came apart easily. But such a solution does
nothing to assuage Craskes rage and constant need to throw his weight
around. Perhaps he has read too many history books about Germanys S.S.
Craskes solution was to restore the pavement to its original condition and charge Mr. Akele £550 when any sensible public servant, even one with his snout in the expenses trough to the tune of £22k a year, would have spent that £550 on modifying the work already done to create a crossover that met the councils standards.
Craske; you really are a stupid little man. How much damage has your idiocy done to the Conservative party a week before the election?
