Tony reports that Thanet District Council have been censoring bloggers from reporting on "public" meetings.
tonight I was told that I could not write or report on the cabinet meeting.
Having no reason to doubt what Tony has said I would like to enquire from our so called leaders under what law do they claim the right to suppress freedom of speech and more importantly the freedom of the independent press?
As an independent I am already banned from using the press office of our Council and must file Freedom of Information requests which can take an age when our Council wish to suppress information or are feeling especially sheepish about the facts.
The incumbent party hardly has the margin to risk offending the public. I suggest the leader of the council personally get his backside to the nearest internet enabled device and explain himself forthwith.
Well, I can hope right?
