19 August (Part 2) - Bexley appoints another failure

StewardMy father spent the first 14 years of his life resident in Rangoon in Burma, it’s called something else now which is too difficult to spell. Then his war service took him to Bombay and Dehli in India. He brought back many artifacts and stories some of which I remember.

One of them confirmed that in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king. He said that the most successful job hunters were those who went around town, sometimes on a bike, wearing sandwich boards proclaiming “Failed BSc, Cambridge, England”.

He saw it as something that summed up a disadvantaged population which I suppose it was in the 1930s and 40s.

Something similar seems to be going on in Bexley. We have the Council’s Head of Legal who has failed to persuade the Law Society or the Bar Council that he is a member and the Chief Executive, Gill Steward, whose sandwich board says “Failed BSc, Cambridge”. Sorry, I mean “Failed to complete a Masters degree at Warwick University in 2003”.

Maybe having a failure in charge of the borough explains her poor decisions and lack of common sense.

With thanks to a Twitter user for reading Steward’s CV so thoroughly.

Note: I am running out of close up photos of the Chief Executive. I must remember to take a longer lens to the next appropriate Council meeting.
