Update click here for the list of candidates

According to the council this list was published yesterday, I asked the returning officer for the list twice yesterday and once again today, I still haven’t received the list.

  1. Is this done because it is an advantage to the larger political parties not to do so too early?

    The Statements of Persons nominated were already to be published when a candidate withdrew so have been frantically trying to get the statements republished.

    I have been told it will be going live later on today.

    However, I have taken the liberty of attaching all the statements as requested.

    Many thanks,

  6. The CE gets paid a lot of money, yet he can't seem to make sure that a very important democratic task is done.

    Is there a fishy reason behind this that we don't know?

  7. Leaving aside any perceived ulterior motives for late publication of the lists, as a parish councillor I find that the long lists of candidates from main political parties very depressing. Are there no other Ramsgatonians that care about their town and who would like to help apart from all the tired old political front men (and women)

  8. I see Ramsgate First are well represented by their only candidate President, Treasurer and all things to all men Mr. O'Donnell on the Eastcliff - from his outpourings about the interest in local affairs I thought a whole host of candidates from Ramsgate First would be contesting every ward -what a surprise - most of the candidates are from the local District area under the usual banners - what a waste of time and money caused by Mr. O'Donnell's petty politics - may be he should be surcharged for the extra expenses caused in future years to the long suffering Ramsgate council tax payers - shame on his name

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
