The first webcast of a Thanet District Council meeting

Having I believe been partly instrumental in causing this webcast is should first like to thank all of those responsible in bringing it about and most particularly to thank them for taking the risk of doing so with inadequate equipment.

I have managed to listen to all of it between different things that at I had to do yesterday evening and this morning and should point out that once it has downloaded to your pc it seems to stay there and any time you open the webpage that it’s on you can drag the cursor in the time bar to wherever you left off.

I suppose the thing that is most evident in the council meeting is the futility of much of the party political wrangling at local level, the problems are very large as are the constraints with evidently few practical solutions.

There is also a sense that this is mostly Margate’s council, with some councillors often seeming to forget the existence of the other Thanet towns.

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.
