CRAIG MACKINLAY: FARAGE MUST COME CLEAN OVER MANSTON

Following the launch of Craig Mackinlay’s Five-Point Plan to Save Manston Airport, and the double boost delivered by John Hayes, the Transport Minister, yesterday, it has emerged that the 2010 UKIP general election manifesto promised a new Thames Estuary Airport, which would destroy any prospect of Manston reopening as a working airport.

NEW TAGGER CAUSES RAMSGATE TRADERS MISERY

A new tagger has emerged over the last couple of days causing outrage among Ramsgate traders.  More than 20 instances of criminal damage - featuring an unimaginative 'stick man' up to six feet high - have appeared from St Augustine's Road to Boundary Road and throughout the Royal Harbour area.  Craig Mackinlay, who lives in the harbour area, has already started cleaning the damage and will be spending much of Good Friday using specialist cleaning chemicals and paint to repair the extensive damage.

Statement from TDC Conservative Group Leader, Cllr Bob Bayford:

At Thursday night's meeting of Thanet District Council, Conservative leader, Bob Bayford used the time allotted to him to respond to Iris Johnston's leader's report to ask her the questions being asked by members of the public, following the publication of the report going to Cabinet next week, regarding the CPO of Manston Airport

CRAIG MACKINLAY RESPONDS TO LATEST CHILD POVERTY FIGURES

Craig Mackinlay is proud of the measures taken by this government to invest in Thanet, with more to come, particularly in improved rail services. There are a huge variety of business start-up schemes now available, and benefit changes that encourage routes back to work. With close to 2 million new national apprenticeships and job creation on an unparalleled scale, these are the measures to eradicate child poverty for good.
