I don’t know if this some sort of equivalent of a queen sacrifice in chess but the boffins at TDCIT seem to have lost the queen from the council’s homepage.
The royal visit announcement was there, and the council issued a press release today see http://thanetpress.blogspot.com/2011/11/margate-old-town-to-greet-queen.html the press release didn’t have an embargo on it, so why it hasn’t appeared is a bit of a mystery.
Why the notification of the royal visit has vanished from the council’s homepage is a bit of a mystery, this leaves the councils homepage top event the coffee morning and plant sale. This event is on tomorrow so it should vanish at midnight, part of the Alice in Wonderland feature in TDCIT is that events featured on their homepage vanish at the beginning of the day they are actually on.
The councils Facebook wall is leading with the night flights application, see http://www.facebook.com/pages/Thanet-District-Council/83700846372?sk=wall they last tweeted the Margate football club proposals.
Perhaps the council are engaged in low treason, their other website, Visit Thanet doesn’t mention the royal visit but does say.
