If you value honesty then you won’t be voting Tory on 3rd May. It pains me to
say so but the gang that runs Bexley is thoroughly dishonest and shouldn’t be
allowed anywhere near the levers of power. Most certainly no one should be
voting Tory in Blackfen & Lamorbey, West Heath and Crook Log which has the
greatest concentration of bad ‘uns.
In eleven of the 18 new wards there is a Liberal Democrat option. It’s a long time since Bexley elected a Lib Dem Councillor.
Their leaflet features something which has always puzzled and annoyed me in equal measure.
How can the Tories complain about the 40% Council Tax increase imposed by Labour from 2003 to 2006 and never give any of it back? And why have they only succeeded in making things worse while claiming to be a low tax borough? Labour left us in 24th worst position in London and the Conservatives have dropped us down to 25th.
The Liberal Democrats are as upset about Bexley Conservatives’ lies as I am.
The Conservatives object to their dirty secrets being posted through so many letter boxes and in Crayford at least they have retaliated.
Conservative candidate Geraldene Lucia-Hennis asked on Facebook “Does Mr Ash live in Crayford? NO so how would he know what Crayford needs”. How stupid is that? The Conservative candidate Christine Bishop doesn’t live in Crayford either. Examples like that abound in Bexley.
Miss Bossy Boots also demanded that Sean Ash (Liberal Democrat) “take down” his comments on Facebook. Shades of Councillor Maxine Fothergill here; another Tory Councillor not wanting the truth to get out.
It is well known that Geraldene Lucia-Hennis has a short fuse. In 2010 she abused a member of the public and was censured by the Standards Committee (the forerunner of the Code of Conduct Committee). She was was censured in 2009 too for failing to declare a financial interest in a planning application.
The parallels with the discredited Maxine Fothergill run quite deep.
A vote for Sean Ash is one less vote for the dishonest party represented by Geraldene Lucia-Hennis.
