Thanet Local Board Meeting Fiasco
I had the pleasure of sitting through Monday's Thanet Local Board meeting in Ramsgate. There's enough turning up on Twitter, Facebook and the blogs that show that there were many people in the hall who were not too pleased at how the meeting was chaired and how the panel members responded. I have to agree. It really is a pretty poor practice to cut people up 2 seconds into framing a question to tell them to hurry up and ask a question. And further to bemoan that only questions were being asked about the airport. Er, the meeting was in Ramsgate. The airport is a really important issue for many people. And as usual being handled dreadfully! I'll leave more detailed discussion of Manston to the lovely folks who are doing a sterling job of keeping on top of the debate.
