Just driving through the local manor in daylight this weekend, something I’ve not been able to do recently I was appalled with the state of fire damaged site, at the bottom of Millmead Road.
Its not just toilets that Thanet Council can no longer sort out but just a short walking distance from Flaig mansions is an unofficial dumping ground where its not just mattresses that appear to be multiplying but I would guess rodents as well.
Despite having three conservative councillors trousering four grand plus each a year as district councillors, with as we know one, not even having the courtesy to reside on the same blimin continent or apparently being able to sign his own name on a letter of resignation, things are clearly not as they should be.
I cannot believe that Thanet council, should be ignoring the state of this site, and neither should those elected to represent the area, still they do live on the edge of the ward in Garlinge, Birchington and err Panama.
Fortunately Dane Valley is one assumes eventually going to have a by-election once Sandy Ezekiel sorts his man in Panama out unless of course Cllr Broadhurst is going to tough it out and make a miraculous return, anyhow Liberal candidate Bill Furness has been out and about working hard to get elected and already making a difference getting KCC Highways to repair the potholes in Hastings Avenue, pointing out poor road markings and getting TDC to clean up some of the worst areas of filth.
Not to sure what Labour or the Tory candidates intend to do to get elected but I feel they might have an uphill struggle the tories because they’ve shown such utter contempt for the residents of Dane Valley and Labour because nationally they’ve stab their own people in the back, even calling for something similar to the 19th century workhouse for teenage mums last week.
