It’s taken long enough, they could have told us by the 14th April, but it has
taken several reminders and in the end a complaint to the Information
Commissioner and five months to squeeze an answer out of Bexley council. They
really do like their secrets don’t they? Are they ashamed of everything they do?
Probably. Anyway I’ll keep you waiting no longer, it was Will Tuckley our
grotesquely overpaid Chief Executive that did the dirty deed. I suppose I should allow
him that he may well have been put in an arm-lock by our dear leader Teresa
O’Neill, but whatever the case we now know my site visitor statistics were
boosted by someone from the top not some nobody of a councillor. Thanks to all
those who worked behind the scenes trying to root out this news and the well known
local personalities who variously labelled Tuckley’s decision as “heavy handed”,
“a bit mad” and “sinister”. Obscene blog author next?
