In response to the Monitoring officer’s damning report on the Council implicating several Labour councillors, including the Labour Leader, Cllr. Hart, the Monitoring Officer was immediately sacked. Last Monday Cllr. Hart unexpectedly resigned blaming the toxic behaviour of fellow councillors, and now another influential Labour councillor, Cllr. Poole has resigned the Labour whip.  

We are extremely concerned that this Labour administration has proved beyond any doubt, that everything they touch goes wrong and costs us thousands if not millions of pounds.  We ask that any independent Councillors, who are considering supporting the continuation of this disastrous Labour administration, think very carefully before casting their votes at the full Council meeting this evening.  The future of Thanet is in your hands. 

Richard Rowson, President STCA
