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.

TDC missed out on £1.14m in EU grants

According to their own review documents, TDC managed to miss out on £1.14m in already approved EU funding.

The document in question covers a period from 2000 to 2006. During that time, TDC managed to obtain £4.4m in EU funding but somehow managed to lose out on a further million of already approved grants.

TDC missed out on EU money

We are not talking about possibly available EU grant money here but already approved grants. Money that was, in theory, there for the taking. Some of the money was not claimed and so TDC missed out, but over £600,000 was claimed only to be spent badly and then had to be repaid.

Read the figures for yourself. The total claimed by TDC was dwarfed by the amounts of EU cash that KCC were able to put their hands on. One grant alone (just for Thanet) was £26m.

What's the truth about KCC Strategic Partnerships?

What do you know about the Mental Health Wellbeing Strategic Partners?

For many years now Kent County Council (KCC) has dished their money out to community groups across Kent, including Thanet. If you've used a local service such as Rethink, Mind (when it operated in Thanet), or a whole host of others, then KCC have probably funded it.

KCC spent the last few years talking about replacing their system of yearly renewed grants with a more robust system. They settled on Strategic Partners. KCC invited organisations from any sector to apply to become a Strategic Partner and, those that did, were taken through a process.

Sometime later two Strategic Partners emerged - Porchlight and Shaw Trust. Porchlight has done a fantastic job over the years of supporting the homeless and has recently done some great work in the world of mental health. Shaw Trust have done some great work supporting people with mental health difficulties to get back into employment. They could have picked worse people to be Strategic Partners.
