Ted Watt-Ruffell not still a Conservative Councillor

There seems to be some confusion about Ted Watt-Ruffell’s resignation from the Conservative group.

I made a couple of checks on this one, one being to ask Simon Moores to confirm this in writing, here is his response:

“Cllr Edwin Watt-Ruffell has resigned from the Conservative Group of Thanet District Council

I understand that Ted has also tendered his resignation as Mayor of Margate and there is a meeting of the Margate Charter Trustees this evening.

There is really no more to be said on the matter at present.”

I also checked with the council as they have to have official notification of any such changes in order to balance the representation of different political parties within committees.

They also confirmed that they had received official notification of his resignation from the Conservative group.

Post a Comment

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.
