Where are the Thanet District Councillors now?

Up until this election I would say that Thanet district Council was perceived by the people living in Ramsgate as being Margate Council. Talking to customers in my bookshop recently I think this perception has been growing in Broadstairs recently too.

Perhaps most of this relates to the business over Pierremont Hall which used to belong to Broadstairs & St Peters Urban District Council and was taken over by TDC who now want to sell it to Broadstairs & St Peters Town Council for more than Broadstairs & St Peters Town Council can afford.

If you think I got that all confused and muddled up this next bit of the post is asking for trouble and is bound not to add up, anyway there are 56 TDC councillors:

19 live in Ramsgate

11 live in Broadstairs

14 live in Margate and Cliftonville

8 live in Birchington

2 live in Monkton and Minster

See tol you so that's 54 and should be 56  

I am off to make a curry now but may ramble on a bit here later 


  1. Are some homeless? Personally I can't wait to see what the UKIP run council does. If the TDC councillors behave as my worst fears predict we are in for mayhem in the near future.

  2. Don I don’t think any of them are homeless yet, it’s just my terrible back of a fag packet maths that didn’t add up.

  3. I am not sure what you are trying to say Michael. Are you referring to the newly elected UKIP dominated TDC?


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.
