not a lot over four months since every household in the borough was
last given one of these extravagant glossy booklets
and once again it isnt only Bexley residents who have received it, we have generously sent it all around Bromley again.
Its right that such information should be available but why cant it be
targeted more accurately and does it really have to be on the best quality
paper? I may have ignored it this time but only yesterday I noticed that the
very same council department is proposing to seriously
curtail library services.
So why does the Courseworks booklet survive in such an extravagant form?
Maybe its because the wheels of bureaucracy grind far too slowly. At the beginning of this month I asked the cost of the ineffective fencing around Lesnes Abbey. The answer is £74,995 which seems quite reasonable compared to the £2,500 I paid just a couple of months ago to replace my own rather more elaborate 90 foot fence. But it remains a waste of money nevertheless. Councillor Gareth Bacon says it was authorised by the previous administration and completed in 2009. Didnt the Labour lot get kicked out in 2006? Councillor Davey made the same excuse last year about the Abbey Road fiasco; all Labours fault apparently.
