16 January (Part 1) - Web Wars

The following blog relates to unspecified allegations against Councillor Maxine Fothergill for which Bexley Council found her guilty of obtaining a perceived financial advantage for herself (not an actual one you will note) and bringing Bexley Council into disrepute.
Over time it became apparent, well beyond any reasonable doubt, that the case against Maxine Fothergill was in every respect a dishonest attempt to pervert the course of justice. A wholly fabricated allegation without any foundation whatsoever which circumstantial evidence suggests was instituted by Council Leader Teresa O’Neill in connivance with Councillor Cheryl Bacon, already on record with supporting documentation of being a serial liar. Bacon is Chairman of Bexley’s Code of Conduct Committee and currently being considered by the Crown Prosecution Service for a charge of Misconduct in Public Office.
The motive was almost certainly revenge for Councillor Fothergill’s refusal to overlook criminal activity within the Conservative Party which the Leader had decided to cover up.
No one made a written complaint against Councillor Fothergill, it was manufactured by Bexley Council. There have been reports that the complaint was the work of a member of the Code of Conduct Committee which heard and judged the case against Councillor Fothergill.
Bexley Council has refused to reveal any information that would indicate that Maxine Fothergill committed any sort of ‘offence’ beyond conducting her property business in a perfectly normal manner. Those who have questioned the Council’s abuse of the law have been banned from making any further contact. The action of an organisation with dark secrets to hide.
All the circumstantial evidence points to Bexley’s corrupt Council continuing an unjustified vendetta against Councillor Fothergill.
The following blog has been retained because it contains none of the allegations against Councillor Fothergill which later proved to be entirely false. Other blogs which suggest otherwise have been withdrawn.

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 a very clear indication that Bexley Council does not appreciate Councillor Fothergill’s activities being progressively exposed.

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 the Fothergill blogs and any other 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.
