18 January (Part 3) - Soft in the head

I try to avoid subjects which might prove to be too divisive. Whether the MP for Bexley was elected on false pretences having promised that Queen Mary’s was safe under the Conservatives; whether the mafia that runs Bexley council is a ‘Gay Mafia’ as has been alleged, I don’t want to go there but I have stuck my head above the parapet on the question of the lack of Thames crossings conveniently placed for Bexley. A vibrant city cannot exist without good transport infrastructure and it is my belief that we haven’t got it in the South East because Bexley council leader Teresa O’Neill thinks it might affect re-election in her Brampton ward at the top of Knee Hill and she has friends in high places.

For the record, and I tempt fate, I have never had anything but support for my stance.

Down the road in Greenwich they have good reason to despair about the traffic congestion and pollution that Teresa is so keen to visit upon them. I’m not sure why I should carry on referring readers to Darryl Chamberlain’s Greenwich based 853blog when he refuses to include Bonkers in his massive blogroll but he does have some good stuff on there occasionally and sometimes impinging on Bexley’s interests. And two wrongs never did make a right.

So if you like to keep abreast of Thames crossing arguments and developments and see why the title above is ‘Soft in the head’ then off you go to read what Darryl has to say. It’s a long one but I think it is worth it.
