Election Aftermath

The original content of this post has been removed because the author was a #WhinyLittleBitch with all the maturity of a mayfly and all the depth of a shoe print on dry mud.

Honestly, would a polite email have really hurt you that badly?

This notice exists because Matt is too sarcastic for his own good and is not always so mature either.

This notice replaced the previous content automatically using a search and replace query directly in the SQL engine. If the mayfly in question has any further complaints he can stick them where the sun shines not.

Or he can try and sue me but he will lose.

Come at me bro.

Seb Reilly absolutely insists all his guest posts for Thanet Star are a product of our imagination. We don't like bullies and have removed all trace of his "contributions"

Who was Cllr Munday?

Cllr Munday may well have been ready to leave before he ever stood as a UKIP candidate.

While it is not clear who said what exactly it is clear that there were rumours of Munday's exit before we even went to the polls.

Of course there were the usual denials and Munday was appionted chairman of Governance and Audit. A role that comes with additional money and, usually, a commitment to being invested in Thanet.

A handful of months later and:

Yes, in case you were wondering this is the same person who was one half of the couple on the receving end of UKIP racial abuse.

No news on a by-election date yet.

So when is the by-election?

After the news that another UKIP councillor has abandoned the party (and their post) we are all left wondering what happens next.

Vince Munday is (or should I say was) a councillor for Newington. He was elected back in May this year and five months later he's leaving the country.

This raises two questions:

1. Surely he knew he was not likely to be here back at election time (so why did he stand)?

2. When is the by-election taking place?

Two questions only Vince Munday can actually answer. Unless he actually resigns from the council Vince is legally entitled to claim public money for "being" a councillor for up to six months from the time of his last meeting.

Assuming he chooses to soak up as much free cash as possible that means he will not be removed from the council until December. Which would place the by-election sometime early next year.

That's assuming he does not decide to pop back twice a year to keep the free cash flowing.

The Intolerant Wife Closes

It appears that after two years of supplying #FoodForEveryone the Intolerant Wife in Broadstairs has ceased trading.

An announcement was placed on Facebook yesterday where the owner, Seth Proctor, and his wife thanked everyone for their support.

The Intolerant Wife Closes

The Intolerant Wife was, to many, just a caf้ like many others, but to some it was a lifeline. Offering a wide-ranging and varied menu, with options for gluten-free, wheat-free, many other intolerances, along with vegan food, the Intolerant Wife really did cater for all. The loss of a small business like this really is a shame, particularly with the owner’s involvement and promotion of Shop Local, a campaign to encourage residents to use independent retailers instead of chain stores.

In the face of mass-market conformity the Intolerant Wife was a refreshing and unique alternative that will be sorely missed.

Have you ever eaten at the Intolerant Wife? What was your experience?

EDIT: Replaced Facebook embed code with screenshot because FB's code was not playing nicely.
