Thanet Star

Can we change it? Yes we can!

We have all seen the news. The pound is crashing and Great Britain is in danger of further financial hardship. We have not had Brexit yet and already we are paying the price.

Local councils are tightening belts. There is money available but they do not want to spend it. Safety is just another budget issue now.

When we work together, the local authority is forced to open it's purse and spend on things that matter. Of course they will, they want to be elected again.

Things like this matter. I bet you did not even put your mouse over that link to see what it was. It had a fancy tool tip and everything. You missed the story about a dangerous junction. It was written a few months back by Matt. His sisters, mum, and baby niece almost lost their lives.

KCC have refused to spend what amounts to pocket change because they think no one cares. I care. I think you do too. They will not know we care unless we say so. We must say that we want something done. I do, do you?

How do we work together?

That used to be hard. We once had to hire a hall and call a public meeting. Now we have Facebook and Twitter. We can work together for free any time we want.

Organising a petition is easier too. We can do that online and signing a petition takes only moments.

Are you unbothered if people die? I know I am bothered by it. It only takes moments to sign a petition.

Are you willing to take two minutes to save a life?

Sign The Petition Here

Hello, Alex here. Matt very kindly let me loose to try my hand at blogging. I could not think of anything much to write about. Until I started browsing the archives. That was where I got the idea tell you about why I think petitions like this one are so vital to Thanet. If I can do it, you can too. Chat to Matt about writing for Thanet Star. I did.
