There is no criticism of Councillor Maxine Fothergill in this blog.
One of the subjects I
discussed with @ErithLink (†) was the cyber warfare waged
by Bexley council against Bexley is Bonkers. Mr. ErithLink is, among other things, an
IT professional employed by world renowned technology companies for his programming and
networking expertise. He has access to software tools that ordinary mortals do not
and can analyse situations that I barely understand.
He said that the Denial Of Service attacks launched by Bexley Council’s IT contractors were poorly executed and not very effective.
However perhaps he spoke too soon.
Today the BiB Facebook account has been wiped off the face of the earth. There is no sign of it anywhere.
It may be an indication that Bexley Council does not appreciate Councillor Fothergill’s activities being investigated.
While my own estimates suggest that BiB may be read by around 5,000 people a month each visiting on average about twice a week, Mr. EL explained to me that that figure excludes too many things. It omits the people reached via Facebook and Twitter and the true figure is more like 70,000 a week.
I think that may explain why Bexley insiders have been saying "They really hate you".
So for now at least you cannot read BiB via Facebook. Perhaps if you run an active Facebook account you might consider including links to any blogs that take your fancy. If Bexley council is behind the Face Book closure they won’t be able to shut us all down.
For good measure, here’s another Fothergill related Freedom of Information request. I know of twelve so far, there may be more.
Please provide copies of all correspondence relating to any remuneration, compensation, or any benefit in kind, paid to any person or organisation as a result of the purchase of property by Councillor Maxine Fothergill or any other individual, which resulted in the appearance of Councillor Fothergill before the Members Code of Conduct Complaints Sub-Committee on 10th December 2015.
