When they did this last year I used a somewhat more restrained post heading see http://thanetonline.blogspot.com/2009/08/broadstairs-folk-week-thanet-district.html but frankly things are getting ridiculous here.
There is no mention of this major event on the council’s homepage although the following events are all promoted there today:
St. Laurence Church Fair - 7 August 2010
Millmead Childrens Centre Surestart Summer Fete - 17 August 2010
Lions Fete at Victoria GardensNational Blood Service - Birchington Village Centre Association
Coast along for Water Aid Saturday 11 September 2010
24th Annual Model Ships Rally
Walk On The Wildside
Murderers Magicians Madmen & Monarchs
Macmillan Cancer Support- 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning!'
I don’t really know how to approach the council over this one, I did manage to get them to put Margate Pride on their homepage but this was only after accusing them of homophobia see http://thanetonline.blogspot.com/2010/07/are-thanet-district-council-homophobic.html and http://thanetonline.blogspot.com/2010/07/stately-homo-of-england.html
I don’t think this approach will work for folk week, if an ethnic group are involved here then it’s probably the English and so wouldn’t have any protection, in terms of political correctness.
