With local papers being hard pressed, due to the migration from paper to pixels, on top of the recession, it's encouraging to see the recent launch of a new monthly title "Thanet Watch", which if nothing else adds to local biodiversity.
Having missed the first edition, coming across the April edition, probably gives a better idea of what to expect in future should it last that long.
A quick glance and I have to say it's better than one of those little advertising booklets often found in chip shops, but has some considerable distance between itself and the Gazette.
Still the Gazette isn't perfect, I note that recently some considerable space was given to Cllr Mike Harrisons choice of words in describing some women he disagreed, interesting that so far no reference to my own complaint, must give them a ring!
One feature that I thought might be interesting in the Thanet Watch, was headed up "Is there human trafficking in Thanet? My view is there almost certainly is but reading this article it goes off on a bit of a tangent which in itself is thought provoking, any how I suggest you divvy up 60p if you want to know more.
For myself it leans to far to the left but then so much of mainstream media leads to far to the right especially BBC radio Kent who almost alone in news gatherers that have yet to cover the rather embarrassing and confusing state of affairs of senior Kent Conservative County councillors including local Cllr Bill Hayton in handling their expenses and rides in taxpayer funded chauffeur driven cars. Still be assured this all resulted from ghastly "administrative errors".
Anyway that's it for now
