On the surface it’s just another couple setting up a new business but when I stumbled upon
this website just a minute or two after finishing my dinner I did
have some difficulty in holding on to it.
Probably Bexley does need some decent home care services; the council has done its best to screw it into the ground locally by starving it of funds. Maybe councillor Sharon Massey is highly qualified in the field and everything is going to be wonderful, but even if it is she and her husband councillor Don Massey neatly illustrate why Conservative councillors are so keen to remain councillors and lie about their achievements to stay in office.
It’s a club. They all vote for each other, sometimes through gritted teeth, and they help each other out and promote each others’ businesses.
The Masseys have called upon their friend, mayor Howard Marriner, to officially open Supreme Home Care on Friday 12th December. James Brokenshire will be there too to give a boost to his mates’ business. Just like he would for a new local carwash or barber.
If Sharon Massey can devote as much time to her new business as she did arranging unlicenced strip shows for charity it should do well and you can be pretty sure it won’t be long before public funds begin to drift into the new company’s coffers, like it did for John Waters’ and his pre-school.
Maybe Sharon will even remember to declare an interest in care services before discussing them at council meetings. She failed to do so at the last General Purposes and from what I have heard will have to face the Code of Conduct Committee because of it. Fortunately for councillor Massey that is chaired by the thoroughly disreputable Cheryl Bacon, currently under investigation for Misconduct in Public Office by the police.
