than 48 hours after the first snow fall and no sign of attention to road or
footpath by your listening council. This part of the B213 (Abbey Road, Belvedere) has 20
scheduled off-peak buses per hour, some parts have 28, and normally you would see a line of
parked cars along the road. Today there are just two which have been stuck there
overnight. The ultra-observant may notice that the bus is a 99 which has been
diverted from Woolwich Road, Upper Belvedere because that road is impassable
to large vehicles. The cost to the local economy must be very considerable and
guess which clueless councillor oversees the relevant department. I suppose that
all the regular gestapo trapping sites are well gritted.
There was an interesting judgment on the law of libel in the Supreme Court yesterday. It was ruled that the defence of fair comment which relied on blogs etc. providing enough information for readers to make up their own mind about an opinion, should be updated to allow for the fact that Twitter and similar facilities do not allow for lengthy presentation of the facts, so in future the full story need not be published along with the comment. I shall endeavour to continue to provide pictorial and documentary evidence of Bexley councils failures.
