Thanet Star

Around Thanet (Blogs)

This month could be very warm but is the local news as hot as the local air?

A law student and a caseworker at a criminal law firm, Kent Defence by the name of Gemma writes on her blog about the impact of legal aid cuts in Thanet and East Kent. She reports that The reality is that it is unlikely that suspects or defendants from Margate or Ramsgate will have a solicitor within 30-40 miles. and that the proposals have been thrown together in a extraordinary rush.

Promote Thanet recently visited Preston Steam Rally and has plenty of pictures to show for it.

David Cameron could be visiting according to the Thanet Gazette. Angry protest plans abound. They alleged that there is a protest group on Facebook but I could not find it.

Tony Flaig is writing on the topic of Thanet Council's ongoing press unfairness with side mentions to the weakness of mainstream political reporting (which could be a whole lot better).

Das Krapital reports on an anti-fascist meeting and the anti-anti-fascists that disrupted it earlier this month in Broadstairs.

Zumiweb has expanded from just Thanet having escaped to Folkstone.

The BBC report that the air show organisers are offering free tickets or refunds to those who were left stuck in traffic. About 15,000 people reading between the discrepancies in the Gazette.

Thanet Watch is still considering the John Worrow temper tantrum which Thanet Star first addressed a month or so ago. To their credit they do have a copy of the video of Worrow's tantrum which was so hastily taken down hours after it was discovered.
