should we make of this? Earlier this afternoon Bexley council’s official Twitter
account put out this deliberately misleading statement.
They have “no plans to close any libraries”. That’s right. They have no plans to close the Belvedere Splash Park, charge for parking at Hall Place or charge to collect your brown bin either.
All these things are proposals out for public consultation, probably the same as plans but not yet adopted as such. Some responders are apparently reassured. Goebbels would be proud.
Do you have to be a third rate liar to work for Bexley council? Bexley’s top comms man is John Ferry. It was likely him who put out the nonsense press release that a group of pensioners were so disruptive at a council meeting that the police had to kick them out. A story now comprehensively exposed as a bare faced council lie.
