Stop the Pollution. Stop the Corruption. Stop the Construction.

Why the delays and silence from our politicians and civil servants on the pollution, corruption and construction in Thanet?

Our politicians and civil servants have failed us:

· major pollution incidents and cover-up

· Third World death rates

· deliberate pollution from Manston

· collapse of Margate

· utter waste of tax-funds and tax-salaries

Please email for a leaflet for your window and email to a friend:

With a 664 vote majority after 3 elections Steve Ladyman cannot win.

Laura Sandys is a mere "parachute candidate" dropped in from Tory Head Office: it could be Thanet or Taunton.

Stop the Pollution. Stop the Corruption. Stop the Construction.

Vote Garbutt May 6th: Independent Green

Stop the Pollution:

• Close Manston airport: built on the polluted drinking water supply

- and repeated safety breaches by TDC and Infratil

• Thor mercury factory near Hornby - publish toxin cleanup details:

should have closed in 1988 but remains open

• Clean the gasworks sites in Ramsgate and Margate: arsenic and cyanide in the soil and dust

• Demolish the derelict and polluting Richboro power station

• Clean up Pegwell Bay: one of the two most polluted sites in Kent

• NHS joint-monitoring of TDC pollution sites to reduce the Third World death rates

Stop the Corruption:

• Repay fraudulent TDC civil service 0% pay rises for Messrs Samuel and White

• Sack the Gang of Four of Messrs Samuel, White, Ezekiel and Latchford

and under-performing civil servants and councillors

• Publish all £22m (almost 50% of a council tax budget of £60m!) civil servant

salaries, expenses, cars, pensions and other benefits each month

• End ChinaGate completely and refund the £25k Labour party donations to charity

• End “mini-margateism” – create Margate Town Council, reopen Ramsgate Tourist

Centre and Albion House Town Hall to the public and MP offices upstairs

Stop the Construction:

• Halt overdevelopment: no new build houses except on brownfield

• End "garden grabbing" construction

• Halt new road construction

• Reverse the dereliction of the town centres

• Rollback development at Westwood Cross and introduce parking charges

• Expand greenbelt and parks

Here’s an article from March’s Independent on Sunday on air pollution in the UK

-clearly the collusion by civil servants and our councillors and MP’s to expand

Manston has seriously endangered the health of many members of the public:

We await explanations on why noise and air monitors were removed and not replaced by Infratil and TDC, why there are repeated breaches of the 106 airport regulations and
consultations, and why the airport is still allowed to pollute the drinking water supply - and why after months and years our councillors, civil servants and MP’s remain silent.

Stop the Pollution. Stop the Corruption. Stop the Construction.
