article is misleading.” So began a letter from councillor Katie Perrior in the
current issue of the Bexleyheath Chronicle (and its sister titles). “I could not
be a councillor if I did not get something (an allowance of more than £22,500)
as I would be out of pocket by thousands of pounds during the course of a year for
travel, childcare, telephone costs, admin support etc. I believe as a mother who
works part time and juggles family life with 20 plus hours a week of council
work…" etc. etc. “The majority of Bexley’s residents are not rich and sadly, nor am I.
Editor please get your facts right.”
What a hypocrite, seems to me Editor Bob Griffiths was spot on and it is Katie who is economical with the truth. She is a director at the West End public relations company Inhouse PR and one of their “Senior Team”. Katie refers to herself as “Full Time Director” (not part time as she wrote in the paper). She has worked on the TV programme ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire’; (I think we know the answer to that one Katie), owns two houses in the borough and pleads poverty to the Bexleyheath Chronicle. Who does she think she is fooling? Previous report.
