Bonkers’ readers are an unforgiving lot with the memories of elephants and one of them thinks I am going soft. “Don’t forget Sandra Bauer’s involvement in the Grootendorst saga, she's not that innocent” said a message received soon after the blog below went on line - and I’m afraid I had. It was our Labour member for Thamesmead East who first complained about Rita. And why should she complain about a garden in far away Sidcup? Probably because the owner had stood against Bauer’s Labour Party friends in Erith and split the vote, letting in a Conservative. Maybe a bit of a bad penny after all. Link.
