While the spotlight has been on
Natasha Briggs’ tussle with the police and her unpleasant but mainly absent neighbours,
Councillors Don and Sharon Massey, I still have not been
arrested for highlighting her plight.
Somehow I don’t think I will be.
I wrote to Borough Commander Jeff Boothe on 23rd May asking him for the names of the two officers who said that arrangements must be made for me to visit Bexleyheath police station with a solicitor in tow and that I would be arrested if I did not comply. I also asked for details of Victoria Massey’s harassment complaint against me.
It will come as no surprise to you that I have been told nothing. Natasha has been left to guess the details of the complaint against her as well.
However I am not as displeased with Bexley police as you might imagine. Chief Superintendent Jeff Boothe sent me a four sentence email totally devoid of any hint that a cell awaits. He said that in due course he will let me have a copy of the “rationale behind decisions”.
Maybe I am sometimes too willing to give the police the benefit of the doubt because it doesn’t often pay off, but I have interpreted CS Boothe‘s short email as him wishing none of it had ever happened and escalating it is the last thing on his mind.
If it is really true that we have a Borough Commander who is not primarily a pawn of Bexley’s crooked Council then BiB welcomes the change of direction and will likely let the matter drop, although I would like to know the names of the aggressive female officer and her colleague who threatened arrest for no reason. Maybe a Subject Access Request the same as Natasha’s will be necessary if my existing request is ignored. People need to know the names of police officers who try to frighten people.
If there is to be no complaint against Bexley police for succumbing to yet more political interference, what next? Natasha is formulating a complaint to Bexley Council about the behaviour of two Councillors but I don’t think I can do that. Cabinet Member Don Massey has been a bit too devious.
Just like Islamic State and other cowards he appears to use women and children as human shields. According to the police it was his daughter who complained about me further publicising her noisy party after she had posted pictures of it on Facebook.
