Electronic Cigarette shop to open in Broadstairs

Broadstairs will be seeing Kent's Broadstairs' first Vape Coffee Shop open for users of electronic cigarettes.

Is the Gazette too biased?

Is it just me or does the local press have a political agenda?

If there is one thing that you cannot accuse the Thanet Gazette of being it's unbiased. Take, for example, the ongoing news of candidates selected to stand for Thanet South. You could be forgiven for thinking that only the right have managed to stand anyone.

Should we legalise Cannabis?
