Who do you trust more Thanet District Council (TDC) or Kent County Council (KCC). Join the debate on our Facebook page.
Now the news is that TDC are actually going ahead with the process of granting a parish council to Margate. They almost go so far as to admit that what they have been doing for Margate has not been working.
As always in Thanet not everyone is pleased with this outcome.
The results are in and the winner was no one at all.
Not only because the EU vote does not exactly have winners but also because the vast majority of people voted to let the politicians do whatever the hell they wanted by staying home and keeping out of it.
Admittedly the turnout was higher than expected although not by much and this can entirely be accounted for by the swollen numbers the Eurosceptic parties got for their European candidates. Perhaps because Eurosceptic voters did not understand that this was not a vote about Europe but simply voting was in support of Europe.
However if that is all the support UKIP can manage during a vote where pretty much everyone else is fairly apathetic about the outcome and only hardcore voters bother to show up I think it is safe to say that when the serious voting starts next year for positions that can actually change British policy on the EU that they are on a road to nowhere.
