Former Head of a corrupt police force

30 November - Craske is watching you and he wants your money- click any image for photo gallery (2 images)

CCTV signs Craske's cuts proposal

Yellow notices are going up around town; they say “Images are being recorded for the purpose of public safety and crime prevention”. It’s a lie. That is why the taxpayer may have been agreeable to their installation but it’s not the use planned for them in future. The small print of the council’s cuts document says that the cameras are to be used for prosecuting yellow line offences. The justification is to get “Value for money” from the C.C.T.V. system. That means maximising revenue but it would be blatantly illegal to admit that so your lying council doesn’t. Almost needless to say, councillor Craske is behind this sly manipulation of the language. Look at the bigger pictures if you don’t believe it.

While I was taking this photo, as is often the case, someone asked me what I was doing and then rushed to his car to show me a Bexley Penalty Charge Notice for having parked in Erith beyond his time. The P.C.N. was timed 13:08, his paid-for ticket pinned to it clearly stated valid until 13:37 on the same day. I told him about the appeals process but he knew about that already. More of our money wasted. Another (Thamesmead, I read it on the ticket) resident harassed and put to a lot of trouble for nothing.
