Having an end of the evening trawl of the web I discovered a recent, sometime today Isle of Thanet Gazette web article saying:
“Transport Minister Simon Burns MP will visit Manston Airport tomorrow (Wednesday) to hear Kent County Council's plans to reduce rail travel time between London and Ramsgate to less than one hour.”
It also says:
“Do you have a question you would like the Gazette to ask Simon Burns MP, Paul Carter or Charles Buchanan? If you do, leave a comment in the box below or visit our Facebook or Twitter pages with your suggestions.”
Well there aren’t any comments their on there website, perhaps no one has anything to say on the issue, perhaps no one discovered the article, here’s the link to it http://www.thisiskent.co.uk/Transport-minister-visit-Manston-Airport/story-17495420-detail/story.html no comments on their FaceBook thingy either, although frankly I don’t understand FaceBook so perhaps I wasn’t friendly enough.
I can only assume the paper only discovered this today, there doesn’t seem to be anything on the KCC website, the airport website. Doesn’t say anywhere if this is a public meeting.
I don’t really know if this is some sort of oversight, or a done deal, “we invited and informed the local press” type of job.
Who knows, you may even be able to go and ask your own questions, like will they be keeping Ramsgate station?
No mention of our own MPs so I don’t know if they are involved, I don’t think our county councillors have any sort of internet presence, do they?
I am sure there is nothing to concern us locals about here, but I just though I would mention it. With such a huge result to the recent Manston KLM consultation one would have expected someone to say something.
