Well that was a turn up for the books; after resident Chris Brown forensically
examined the down sides of building on the Wilde Road open space and a pathetic -
I burst out laughing at one stage - performance by Council Officers and their agent, not a
single Councillor spoke in favour of the shockingly poor proposal.
Councillor John Fuller’s (Conservative, Northumberland Heath) objections brilliantly hit exactly the right note and his performance was followed by an excoriating attack by Councillor June Slaughter (Conservative, Sidcup). After that the plans stood no chance and it was unanimously rejected.
Full report at the weekend I hope.
And what happened to the promised report on Kent Police’s rejection of my complaint against them accepting Maxine Fothergill’s harassment allegation because I did what any reporter might have done; reveal her run in with the Libel Laws? I’m afraid it fell victim to a demanding old lady in need of help and an inconvenient IT failure.
Suffice to say at this stage that Kent Police still believe it would have been in the public interest to charge me with harassment. Needless to say their failure to investigate any part of Fothergill’s false statement was in their view entirely correct. No one did anything wrong at all - except me.
What a surprise!
