This is a matter of conscience for Parliament to debate and not, as we witnessed last year, a soap-box opportunity to bring the business of our own council to a halt, by adding the subject to the agenda, on an evening where sensible argument was displaced by abuse and reason by rage. This evening, we should see an end to a matter which distracts from the real business of Government and we must be satisfied with the proper democratic outcome, whether we might agree with it or not.

On to some local news quickly, before I forget. I spoke to the Council about the planning permission required for the new cricket club building in Westgate. This is more of a formality for a new structure on KCC land and I don't forsee any immediate problems. I've asked the officer to contact me if anything comes-up but I expect it to go through with a nod.
TG Aviation at Manston have a new website with useful information and so if you fancy a trial lesson in the Big Red Stearman biplane or something a little smaller, a gift voucher for someonespecial for Valentine's Day perhaps, give them a call on 01843 823520.
The WhyNot micropub in Westgate's Lymington Road, has a quiz night this Friday from 6-8pm,, with an Indian and Chinese food buffet. It's all in aid of charity and the entry price is £2.00.
Looking at the visit counter on the sidebar, I can see that ThanetLife has increased its monthly reach and so I'm always happy to consider passing on any interesting local business news and offers, as the more common complaint I hear, is that advertising in the local paper achieves very little these days.
By request, I've embedded the flyer for the next Frock-a-licious fashion show in April, so there's a date for your diary ladies... and gentlemen too of course in case our council diversity champion is watching!
