There are various historic buildings open in Thanet this weekend; among them are several places of worship.
There is a link on the councils homepage called “Heritage Open Days come to Margate” this takes you to the following page http://www.thanet.gov.uk/news/latest-press-releases/heritage-open-days.aspx St. John’s Parish Church and Margate Baptist Church but nothing about the two Thanet synagogues that are open this weekend; Montefiore Synagogue and Thanet & District Reform Synagogue.
Strangely enough the other historic buildings that are open in Ramsgate aren’t mentioned either St George's Church and The Grange, so perhaps the council are just Anti-Ramsgate and not Anti-Semitic, these things are a bit difficult to decode from the signals that come from the council.
I don’t think there is any way the council didn’t know about these buildings being open as this is an annual thing, indeed councillors and council officers go and look at the buildings and I have met some of them there.
I also posted about these buildings being open at http://thanetonline.blogspot.com/2010/09/ramsgate-heritage-open-days-2010-10-12.html and I know that some of the local councillors and council officers read this blog, so presumably they must have known about it that way too.
Anyway I have made an official complaint to the council that they have behaved Anti-Semitically, as I believe councils are supposed to behave multiculturally.
This is particularly important in this instance as Moses Montefiore was one of the most prominent forerunners of multi-culturalism in the UK and his relationship with this country was vital to the forming of the multi-cultural society we enjoy today.
