First and Second Class Kent
Sometimes as I drive through Kent I am struck by what I see as special treatment for West Kent, and a clear example of discrimination seems to be the roads system.
Take this as an example, on the one hand perhaps one of the busiest roads in the county, the A256 between Ramsgate and Sandwich continues to be a complete pigs breakfast; whilst at the same time you will find driving heaven, on the A228 between the M20 and Kings Hill, luck of the draw you think.

Well I think whilst we pay the same tax as everyone else in Kent, towards the counties roads, it so happens that much of our money is spent in Maidstone, and Kent council, has a fairly large presence at Kings Hill, so surely it cannot just be a coincidence that they have better roads, despite less traffic?

I wonder if our county councillors (Tories) in Thanet and East Kent, actually have a clue as to where are moneys going, particularly since one of them, once explained to me coincidently, how Kent council had purchased West Malling airfield, with public money, but now this has been redeveloped into “Kings Hill” money earned from developers, is no-longer ours but “regeneration money” or what I prefer to call Magic money.
