Gazette letter: watery Wells and dog-dirt TDC

Dear Editor

Chris "watery" Wells seems to be drowning in his own foolish statements last week on East Kent as Brexit-by-sea. UKIP at TDC have proved as incompetent and mendacious as the Ezekiel Gang of Four regime that Wells jumped ship from.

TDC UKIP having a one-off closed session for them to approve Brexit is a laughable debate. While their support for Nuttall proved to be stuff-all with the same sort of election fakery in Stoke infecting Thanet South and Craig Mackinlay.

With the resignations of Arron Banks the main UKIP financier and now Douglas Carswell as the only UKIP MP it's a party of the past.

The warning signs of Brexit are already clear with a complete lack of direction - all the main Leavers resigning or being sacked - and random negotiations wasting years to simply go full circle and end up in the EU with a few facesaving tweaks if that.

UKIP KCC is of the past with elderly leader Roger Latchford, Wells' colleague in the Gang of Four, now resigning after nothing done at all in 5 years. And the same void of action except collecting job titles contaminating Heale and Shonk.

Manston of course remains a cancer on the body politic for both UKIP and Tories pretending to reopen it but doing no such thing, given the aquifer under the runway. And Wells' role in TDC/KCC removing the pollution monitors and faking the pollution data requires explanation.

While Riveroak USA washing its hands of Riveroak UK/Wiggins' Freudmann, leaves only a mega-town for Gloag/SHP instead of a review of the Manston missing monitors fines and Stagecoach contracts.

No doubt another TDC CPO for $1 beckons to be rid of both Riveroak and SHP.

Let's hope Kent’s rather tame journalists and cops so far are more active in their inquiries - unless they and their families are immune from cancer?

Wells is now relying on a dog-dirt-DNA policy(!) as TDC/UKIP's only action speaks volumes in the £17M of tax spent at TDC and £2BN at KCC each year to do nothing,
except call for more tax for failure and inanities.

Wells as Leader of a dog-dirt council seems apt.

With TDC elections just two years away in May 2019 nothing will be done.

Time for Change: @timg33


3 astonishing points that slipped under the radar

1. A few details: Two Riveroak USA directors quit and form Riveroak UK with Freudmann and mysterious/unknown backers - an empty company very similar to SHP having a punt on a New Town speculative overbuild for $1

2. Ramsgate beach fails EA water quality guidelines and Lin Fairbrass Deputy Leader at TDC suggests this is OK - they're in charge or not? And doing anything other than Brettgate?

3. TDC confirm KCC election polling cards haven't been sent out and won't be done until Monday - the day before nominations close. Shambolic. They had one job...

Have a moan and they'll no doubt simply sign it off as acceptable and ignore you and hope nobody notices too much:

4. Ramsgate Town meeting yesterday - now down to one meeting a year not 3 as required - and I don't think anyone attended - again. Councillors talking to an empty room.

Broken Kent election

Bizarre incompetence:

* election began Friday - who knew? No notices/publicity etc?

* Polling cards still not sent out. Which renders nominations void: you need name/signature and poll card and elector numbers. Who knows those or has them available even if they have been issued?

* Just 7 working days for candidates to now declare and gather forms/signatories etc - even without the poll card mess-up.

* Ballot boxes to be stored overnight before being counted(!). Why risk tampering or fire when most elections are counted same day

A sloppy election for pensioners and their clerks.

KCC elections happened every 5 years is hardly a surprise and concerning given the rampant Thanet South MP election fraud.

I am collecting signatures for election and a petition of concern tomorrow Ramsgate High St form 11am

Please support me and bring your pollcard/elector number or email them after:

Otherwise it's the sane old-same old

Kent election 2017: stagnation and rot. Time for Change

Tim Garbutt KCC Leader 2017 and MP 2020 candidate said:

"With the KCC elections now upon us it's time for change.

Many of the old guard of councillors have resigned from the County Cesspit.

It's time for reforms from the stagnation and failure of the past, and Manston-Infratil and Thor mercury crimes.

And how horrifying given the London terror attacks, and by a Kent resident on the terror blacklist, are the failures at Manston and Lydd and Ostend with illegal flights by Egyptair amongst many banned airlines.

And machetes and samurai swords and hipowered air rifles still on open sale on the stagnant High Streets of Kent.

Frontline Kent - from Helmand to Belgium - has become Britain's backdoor for terrorism and drugs and guns and people smuggling.

And Private Eye even now detailing more peculiar BVI offshore investments than Pleasurama with the Maidstone Hilton hotel.

While the backward-looking failure of Brexit by Farage's Turnip Taliban will cripple Kent's European and international trade - from Farm to Pharma to Tourism to Universities - with Benelux and Poland and Romania and Hungary and delay substantial EU reform.

With billions and billions of dollars, and years and years wasted in coverup and fraud and incompetence and stagnation and rot, Kent has failed.

Time for votes at 16 and electoral reform to prevent the Thanet South election expenses fraud, the UK's largest-ever as detailed by Channel Four, and puppet party candidates.

Time for full and routine FOI on salaries, expenses, pensions, cars etc.

Time for party manifestos 6 months before elections.

Time for East Kent council reform and Direly elected Leaders not the current cabal of nodding-donkey councillors.

And so on and so on.

And given the glacial pace of reform in Kent none of that's new but still as relevant.

Here's a summary of the same problems from way back in 2013:

Kent's pensioners have failed us.

Time for Change



Kent Mickey Mouse elections:

Election process begins today (me, neither) but poll cards not sent out and absurd process almost-impossible to complete accurately

- concerns to:


* why are ballot boxes stored overnight and not immediately counted? Clearly they could be tampered with - who has made that decision? When/where is a 5th May count?

* you're saying a poll number is definitely required but Thanet poll cards haven't gone out as yet and the election has started?

* And just c.10 days for candidates to gain signatories? Then those to be rejected or not over the following month?

* the electoral register is available for addresses at TDC in Margate but I am supposed to check that before going to ask a specific person?

This sounds badly-run and almost impossible to complete accurately: Ben can you advise as the senior election organizer.

Subject: FW: Garbutt: KCC election signatures - May 2017 #5

Dear Mr Garbutt

The ballot boxes will be stored overnight securely and opened on Friday 5 May at the verification and count.

If you have any further concerns about the nomination process, please read the information available on the EC website. The requirements to provide an electoral number is to confirm the signatory is a registered elector, registered within the division the candidate wishes to stand in. it is also a way for us, to check that an elector has not signed for more than 2 candidates.

Poll cards are being delivered from this weekend so may will have their number, but you do have access to view the electoral register at Thanet District Council offices to confirm someone is registered.

Kind regards



Thanks and the 21 signatories I provided (with mobile/email etc for you to check identities) confirms it's for the KCC election and was provided to KCC 3 weeks ago with no concerns raised.

On the EC form I'm unclear what you would be checking - it requires only name and signature. Also a poll number/electoral district but that's not a requirement to vote and unlikely to be known by the public?

I'd hate to collect 10 signatures again and have the form rejected on a poll number technicality given the previous widespread Thanet/Kent elections fraud.

Can you confirm the ballot boxes will be opened and documented the day of the election as in national elections not stored overnight?

Please advise

update #1 Terror attacks and Kent machetes and Manston etc: Egyptair

Obviously a sad terror attack in London and fair KP response on lending police and patrols.

Concerned terrorists known to MI5/police for some years and shot by a bodyguard not guncops.

A few misc points:

* low tech terrorism - machete sales in Ramsgate

* pedzone cars again and parked on pavements: G4s ln111 WWJ 10:40 am - basic road safety and police idleness rather than terrorism - emptying out of police stations and budget review to 1.99% target needed?

* new airline laptop ban: includes Egyptair ie Manston: Ostend/Lydd illegal flights - similar incident:

* Surrey Police useless (Deepcut): Magnitsky - Perelichpnny poisoning investigation reopening - latest murder today:

* And another one:

* Concerned police priorities - and clearly it's not working - on GCHQ wiretapping everyone and KP Domestic Extremists secret list on such as elected councilor Ian Driver and:

* good article on Thanet South Election fraud:

astonished Manston as the key UKIP/Tory policy and Infratil crime not mentioned though.

* police Action Fraud inaction on Andrew Conway of Lawrence Stephenson lawyers posing as HMRC

* raising corrupt layers and barristers and weak judges as manifesto: One Essex Court

* Manston/Infratil cancer relevant for UKIP/Tory policy? - as this:

PoliticsHome‏Verified account @politicshome 1h1 hour ago

Paul Nuttall on London attacks: "We have a cancer within a particularly community and it needs to be cut out."

I hope that's just kneejerk racism.

Time for Change



* Kent's dodgy elections - now confirmed by Claire Hawken at TDC and Ben Watts at KCC both Returning officers apparently that 3 weeks have passed with only inaction on confirming the 21 signatories I supplied. And the Election Pack supplied - over 200 pages across 19 forms and brochures of subsection this and clause that bumf.

Simply to sign name/address etc.

Clearly it's designed to be as offputting as possible.

And less than 10 days to do so and then a month of bumf checking.

No wonder so few people stand for election regardless of terror threats, insults etc etc.

Perhaps it is best to refuse to stand. Spoil the ballot and refuse to pay tax.

Or just shut up and pay the tax a few nodding donkeys nod through.

The turnout's are already at rockbottom: invariably less than 30% and as low as 12% even without Co-opted where only one person stands.

And for all the bumf we still have the rampant election expenses fraud - as the weblinks above confirm over £15k the expenses limit spent just at the Ramsgate hotel and party staffers bussed in. The Guardian article is lengthy but worth reading shows it's far,far worse than I thought with party head office staffers replacing local members in just a few marginal seats:

21 Kent cops investigating for 2 years is a concern - where are their documents? Even if it is a legal case the info should be released, at the very least some of the points put to CPS might be incorrect and not everyone can attend court.

Kent Ancient Regime collapses as Toxic 3 become Toxic 2 - and Heroin Corner

It's clear Kent and East Kent in particular have run out of steam if not simply collapsed.

Blink and you may have missed it but 13 KCC councillors - almost 20% of the council - have already resigned rather than stand again in the 4th May KCC election.

Alex King of the KCC Toxic 3 has resigned after 28 years(!) as KCC Deputy Leader and Paul Carter's right-hand man. Clearly reluctant to face questions ove rhis role in the Infratil and Gloag and KCC/TDC council scandal.

The Toxic 3 are now the Toxic 2 with only Leader Carter and KCC legal beagle Geoff Wild clinging on to carry the can for Manston.

And Roger Latchford the KCC UKIP Leader has resigned. Latchford was the last of the Gang of Four at TDC: resigning over Manston as a Tory before, as with Chris Wells, turning coat to pop up as a UKIPper.

And as with Alex King clearly reluctant to face questioning over his role with Infratil/Gloag and the Manston monitors removal.

Latchford was sidelined at KCC - certainly not a racist organisation amongst Shire Tories - along with Heale and Shonk into irrelevance. Shonk not the first double and triple hatter to find that accumulating job titles doesn't mean competence.

And bizarrely, the UKIP main donor Arron Banks suddenly quit UKIP last week to set up his own political party. With the rows over Farage-replacement Leader Nuttall losing Stoke and the open feud between Carswell and Farage, Banks wasn't wasting his efforts or funds on what even he described as squash club squabbles.

Clearly whether at TDC or KCC UKIP have delivered nothing except the scandal over fake Manston policy. And Messrs Mackinlay and Gale are now lame ducks facing Recall and arrest after the Tory election expenses fraud exposed by Channel Four (you may remember I refused to stand in the 2015 election over the rampant corruption and fraud).

The Electoral Commission is far too weak: a £70k fine is just a cost of doing business and funneling back to scared local cops is dismal. And what happened to Homer as a £150k fee as Returning Officer? I've written to OESCE requesitng election monitors from Chad or Zimbabawe. They couldn't be worse could they?

Obviously Nick Timothy PM May's aide was running the election for them and bussing in Tory supporters to spend at least £15,000 at the Ramsgate Royal Harbour Hotel - run by a previous Tory candidate- in itself exceeding election spend.

Mackinlay as a Chatham accountant and JP could hardly claim ignorance of the sums nor the dozens of volunteers bussed in from London.

The election could have been held in John O'Groats or Lands End for all its relevance to Thanet.

It's symptomatic of parachute candidates dropped in by party head office, falling and inactive party memberships and weak photoshoots pretending to be policy.

Why? They do nothing and have no policies or merely bland nonsense like reducing crime.

Bizarrely Chris "drinking water" Wells may stand as MP and face more questions over Manston and Thor cancer and the Manston aquifer.

Even Kent PCC Police elections in 2015 have Steve Uncles of the BNP-esque English Democrats jailed for 7 months for electoral fraud in making up fake candidates(!) in 2013 and ourageously being allowed to stand in 2015.

Your vote is yours to use as you wish of course but I can hardly recommend any of the above nor grisly leftovers like elderly pig farmer Ken "HIV" Gregory standing for KCC.

I can only descibe as Garbutt's Gibbons such nonentities as Berry Burton and Sproates and RTC's elderly and secretive clerk Richard Styles and TDC legal beagle Tim Howes switching off councilor's emails at the corruption, clinging on through the cancer and corruption they have created or rubberstamped.

The £120k Madeline Homer after 2 years as TDC CEO must be questioning they and herself on the inaction.

And nor could I recommend voting for any doublehatter candiate also sitting at TDC nor any that's been at KCC or TDC for more than 10 years.

The civil servants simply lead the elderly and incompetent councillors by the nose to increase their own salaries and pensions: KCC the most £100k salaries in UK local government.

What have they done? And what have you got to lose in voting for change?

Certainly it's too late for the Manston and Thor mercury cancer corpses.

Garbutt for KCC Direct Leader May 4th 2017.

Time for Change


* Headlines in Daily Mail on a Police RAF of drones show the bloat of techspend and boys toys. Kent Police have purchased a Maplins drone but the danger is the missioncreep of 24/7 use and avoiding patrolling in the rain. The huge spend on CCTV (does Ramsgate CCTV actually work - why isn't it streamed on the KP website?)and cars and body cameras and military satellites and machine guns and water cannon and GCHQ tagging every email and Facebook post never seems enough does it?

* While a 10% increase in Kent Killed and Seriously Injured 54 road accidents (and higher if tweaked to the required EU standard) suggests it isn't working and far more clampdowns on drinkdriving, 20mph zones, HGV's in laybys etc and mobile homes at the wheel are needed. And where is the map of accidents and blackspots to design out crashes? And weekly and monthly reports? The KCC ad campaigns on just 12 drivers not wearing seatbelts or nervous passengers seem weak, given the pedestrian deaths and drivers' responsibility. A zero drinkdriving limit now is hardly mission impossible and licence torn up for say over 80mph speeding.

* Parkway rail station: 3 years after Manston closed. you couldn't make it up. What must readers in ASEAN or USA or EU think of KCC planning for such a farce? And how has £20M in Whitehall funds been spent to yield nothing? Shut up and pay your tax increase. Whether it's 1.99% or not. Or tear up your tax bill and demand a corruption and incompetence rebate.

* Silence on Kent OAP Winter extra deaths so far: no doubt clamped down on with the Homeless deaths until after the election. A monstrous failure of KCC's £2Bn budget and a G7 nation. Only the excess and accidental NHS surgery deaths may be higher.

* And I feel very uncomfortable as I'm sure you do too with Cllr Ian Driver placed on a police Stasi-like Domestic Extremist Database (who reviews that and when?) when an elected councillor. Imagine the costs of Special Branch sat outside his house working their way through their caviar sandwiches and thermos of Bovril and then trailing the council chamber... then back again. Very concerning with only c.400 ISIS terrorists actually in UK jails. Or the horrific chilling of local democracy with the TDC secret documents on Pleasurama corruption case and £20k fine on his house. Why would anyone stand for a council woiht that nonsense. And what a failure by our sheep-councillors and journalists. As KCC Leader I'll cancel both issues and repay any costs and damages.

* Heroin Corner and KFC yobbery is a case in point: 9-5 cops want to stay in the station with layer upon layer of hierarchy, and prowl cars drive around and around. Yet for at least 3 weeks now we've had 15(!) junkies and BMX dealers screaming and yelling about their Heroin and Special Brew - tightening up on newsagent street drinker and Tobacco sales is needed too - and the usual c.10-15 naughty teens playing football and litter in the High St etc. with every bench occupied by a street drinker and tramp. No wonder the towns are in decline. The cops have lost control and are in retreat behind their tax-tech that doesn't work either. Thursday and Friday seem to be a Bucket of Heroin Night at KFC.

* Chris Geary of City of London Police and Action Fraud is another case in point. Geary is head of financial crime in the City (replacing Adrian Leppard Kent Police deputy Chief) yet LIBOR jailings seem few and far between. While Action Fraud is a shiny new initiaitve on cybercrime andsacmas that is essentially a glossy bucket with a hole. I've raised Andrew Conway and colleagues of Stephens Law posing as HMRC officials - a blatant crime and just you try it - yet Geary is unbae to replty to emails or even a no-crime number and it transpires Action Fraud simply bounces any enquiries to the 43 local cops forces. InAction Fraud bloat and multiagency muddle.

* A review of cop-on-cop cases whether internal crimes or suing each other in the public's courts on the rates would be useful too. Should the police BoobGate or WolfWhistle Gate really take up more than a few minutes of discipline if any? Or are they put on drones and spithood duty rather than walking-about duty?

* Working on One Essex Court fruad with Grabiner, Leavor,Glick and Hollingworth and negligent judges: Mann etc. It's unlikely Lord Grabiner of BHS and Apogee will remain a Lord in the reforms and already sat only with Lord Jeffrey Archer. but astonishing he remains a Judge. BSB's Sarah Downer/Jagger has failed in regulation. Would you want Grabiner or his dodgy staff trying you or your children or granchildren?

* A USA diplomat expelled from New Zealand yet Infratil not extradited. Something wrong surely? And why have Kent Police spent over 5 years doing nothing on the issue?

* Cars on pavements and double yellow lines and pedzone. Clamp and Crush long overdue. Whether by street cops or prowl cars (and they should be reporting on potholes and street lights rather than polishing each other's truncheon in the car) or traffic wardens. What seaside towns wouldn't do that?

* Good Police £80M cocaine boat arrests. Time for Zero Cocaine and Heroin in Kent. Certianly outside the Chatham and Gillingham junky towns. An NHS register for junkies - and tight to prevent junkie tourism- and dealer crackdown: 24/7 courts for warrants and sentencing and the extra Kent year.

* 500 rapes in East Kent and one arrest. What has been going on? The 6,000 cops and clerks at Kent Police for c.30 small towns seem to have given up? When Chief Constable O'Pughsley is back from his holidays I'll be writing to him on these two-pipe problems.

Kent Corruption: Thanet election - Sunday Times, Nick Timothy and Toxic Three become Two

Tim Garbutt KCC Leader candidate 2017 and MP 2020 said:

" Yesterday's detailed Sunday Times article (attached) on the 2015 electoral fraud by Nick Timothy follows hard on the heels of not one but two Channel Four investigative reports into the same issue in recent weeks.

Indeed Kent Police have deployed 9 police officers over 2 years - as have c.20 other police forces, yet produced less than The Sunday Times and Channel Four managed in weeks.

OESCE election monitors are long overdue. To have Kent's other incompetent MP, Roger Gale, lecturing African nations on elections is absurd. Rather, Chad or Burundi should provide monitors here in Kent.

Now, the affable and capable Tory Chair Grant Shapps confirms Nick Timothy, PM May's right hand man at the Home Office and now Downing St, was leading the Thanet election and the misuse of funds.

I refused to stand in the 2015 election due to the widespread and blatant corruption. Party leaflets claiming Craig Mackinlay lived in Ramsgate were just one example of absurd lies given he's a Chatham councillor and JP.

Chatham, as with Nick Timothy's Birmingham, is a desperate dump, and hardly a recommendation for improving Ramsgate and East Kent. With the dynamic Lord Heseltine now sacked, and no doubt glad of it with the Brexit silliness, Kent is ill-served in driving forward the Thames Gateway and Paramount theme park projects.

The Tory and UKIP only policy of reopening Manston airport, was presumably generated and approved by Nick Timothy.

Clearly that raises concerns over the airport not being reopened after 2 years. As well as the dangerous issue of the East Kent drinking water aquifer under the runway.

And the Infratil/Gloag/KCC/TDC corporate manslaughter crimes in removing the Manston pollution monitors and faking the data for years.

The Infratil criminal directors must be laughing at UK politics from the comfort and safety of their NZ offices, no doubt hiring corrupt lawyers such as Grabiner and Glick and Hollingworth to delay their extradition.

Kent Police need to be asking questions of Nick Timothy et al over what they knew and when, along with the GIAA £500k and Pleasurama corruption.

The epidemic of parachute candidates and Party HQ drones and bussed-in supporters make UK elections a farce resulting in G7 UK slipping down the development league tables.

And Kent becoming a rat's nest of rapists and junkies and toxic sites such as Manston and Thor mercury.

The only bright spot last week, was 20% of KCC councilors resigning before the May 4th KCC election, including Alex King Deputy Leader of KCC, for 28 years: The Toxic Three are now The Toxic Two of Carter and Wild.

The wheels have come off the Kent tractor. Kent is broken and will take decades to fix."

Time for Change



* Campaigning Saturday astonished so few people heard of Thor mercury in Margate near the Hornby factory or Cato Ridge
* good to see Kent Police out on Sunday at Heroin Corner - but concerned at ladies telling me of Street Drinker Square with police dithering and delay
* I know of no manifesto for Kent/KCC by any of the main parties - anyone?

Kent Police 1974.

It's worrying to see Kent Police take a leaf out of Kent council's book and slip back to the dark days of the 1970's.

3,000 cops plus 3,000 deskcops still seem to be struggling under the weight of tax increases and £200M budgets.

Rape widespread - the highest ever in UK, and highest in Kent in East Kent.

More kiddy-fiddling than the Top of the Pops studio 1974

Missing Persons and Jimmy Savile council care homes - a UK national scandal.

Cold cases getting colder.

Two-shot tasers given 17 UK deaths from one-shot tasers - more Kabul than Kent.

All for shoplifters, pubfights, jaywalkers, hopscotch criminal damage and TV licence crime.

The spithooding of prime suspects - no doubt a creeping routine not seen beyond Belfast or Basra.

The tax burden of techkit of cars and phones and truncheons and body cameras and spithoods and tasers and pepper spray and drones and helicopters and nightstick and chapstick and lipstick - to not arrest junkies and rapists and not kick in drug den doors.

A nasty rash of Trade Unionism and one-legged black lesbian and leadership seminars on the rates - more BS than BA.

Surrey and Sussex police joyriding down through the constabulary rankings with Deepcut and sheepbothering.

Wiretapping and trailing Domestic Extremists such as elected councillors.

Clunk-Click. Guns that don't shoot straight.

Sleeping policemen: road deaths up 10%. No blackspot roads redesign list, and I am convinced it's a major contribution to road safety.

Excessive use of pot noodles and polyester shirting.

Asbestos left over from the 1870's with not enough headmasters jailed.

All obscured in a cloud of heroin and cocaine and a bonfire of tax.

I'll be writing to Chief Pughsley when he's back from his holidays asking for:

* Routine monthly FOI on drugs seizures and rapes

* Procurement list of guns, ammo, tasers, cars and trousers

* Reoffending and prison dumping statistics

* Special Branch Domestic Extremist policy and GCHQ wiretapping of every phonecall and Facebook post and the telly and kettle. And steaming open emails. And the cost and any specific arrests.

* Learmonth's Learjet policy: Kent citizens stranded/ill/jailed abroad

* Pandemics and Left is Life policy: TB/tetanus jabs and blood/organ donations

* KP Benelux and Captura Costa del Crime policy

* KP pensions invested in Tobacco and Oil and Spangles

* Canteen Culture reform with more walking about, less caviar and horse meat

* PCC role reform: Courts/Solicitors/Private detectives licences and white collar crime and failure of Geary's City of London police and LIBOR and Action Fraud basics such as Andrew Conway at StepLaw and One Essex Court the go-to corrupt barristers with Grabiner and Glick and Magic Guy Hollingworth magician, barrister and fraudster, or Palmer of PbiLaw, Broadstairs rape lawyer

* Closed courts and lack of jury trial and excessive dodgy judges such as The Wee Gray Scot, The Crying Judge, Judge Mann, Lord Grabiner of BHS perhaps Britain’s worst Judge and QC and the apogee of governance, and shy and retiring Ian Glick QC, and Suitcase Smithy the Gazza of the High Court.
* Cop-on-cop, and BBCTV licence fee, court cases and policy

* This year's gun and knife crime amnesty weeks

* Prowl car and foot patrol lists and role: parking, street lights, pothole reporting etc

* Kent backoffice merger plans with EK-SC and Surrey and Sussex

Kent Police with 9 cops(!) for 2 years(!) on the case, seems to be struggling to delay any longer the Nick Timothy election fraud and or Manston and Ostend and Lydd narcoflights and Infratil/Gloag/council crimes.

Only Thor mercury successfully delayed for 30 years amidst a blizzard of sicknote claims.

It's time for the crackdown.

Courts open 24/7 for rape and drug trials.

An extra Kent year in prison for heroin and cocaine.

A Kent probation year for reoffending.

Too many junkies and dealers and rapists and road deaths.

Too many cops in an expensive multiagency muddle?

Time for Change

* signatures supplied to KCC and awaiting election week gone by
* 13 KCC councilors to resign at May election - the end of Carter's Ancient Regime - over 110 years service between them. What were they doing?
* Saturday noon until May handing out leaflets and petition for Infratil arrests and extradition

KCC election 4th May 2017. The Cancer Victims and Corruption Election

Tim Garbutt KCC Leader 2017 candidate and MP 2020 said:

"The KCC election is underway and I've supplied the required signatures to KCC and await the specific forms to be issued.

No doubt there'll be some bureaucratic jiggery-pokery or attempting to downplay the manifesto point of a Directly-elected Leader at KCC and full FOI of salaries, pensions etc.

Clearly though this election is on the future of Kent - and the horrifying Manston-Infratil and Gloag scandals. KCC's Toxic Three and TDC Gang of Four removing the Infratil pollution monitors from 2006 until the airport closure in 2014 is an outrageous crime.

Covering it up is even worse with UK suffering some of the worst air pollution in Europe.

The silence is deafening from the usual party cartel and even UKIP silence with Manston as their national policy - despite it being on the East Kent drinking water aquifer.

Even PM Theresa May must wonder at the goings-on with her aide Nick Timothy, as much an instruction as a name, now revealed on Channel Four, The Independent and The Times as - illegally - running the Thanet election and extra costs.

I refused to stand because of the blatant corruption.

With Kent Police's investigation taking 2 years, and last week suddenly announced as concluding in 2 months - after the May election - policing is looking too political. The police seem to be spending their efforts on not investigating the Kent corruption, to put more effort into not solving crimes.

No wonder UK has 100k rapes the highest ever and East Kent the highest rapes in Kent. Plus UK knife crime up 11% and Kent road deaths up 10%."

Time for Change



* 2 years are up for Madeline Homer and Tim Howes at TDC: £90-120k salaries but I can't see any improvements from our civil service experts can you?

* public surprise and horror at TDC budget of £17M and KCC £2BN and most KCC £100k salaries in UK government. The NHS budget is extra to that

* unimpressed with East Kent NHS hospital and Thanet Extra describing £300k(!) CEO as " an NHS automaton" for bureaucrat-speak as to what if anything was slated to close

* Silence too from Berry, Button and Sproates on Manston and Thor pollution

* bizarre that Canterbury College 6th form college had a £170k CEO - who's controlling these absurd costs? And for failure

* EK Supercouncil: 10% job cuts seems far too low - only 30%-plus cuts makes any real structural difference

* Gasmask Wells or Shonk as KCC/TDC key figures to visit Thor mercury?

Pandemics and UK - and WHO latest reports #1

An excellent New Scientist article on Pandemics and the Next Plague such as Bird Flu or Spanish Flu in WW1.

And WHO has taken the unprecedented step this month of detailing the most dangerous viruses:

* Lassa fever - a West African virus spread by rats and 300k infections and 5k deaths each year
* Nipah - a bat and pig virus first found in Malaysia
* Rift Valley fever - spread across Africa and Arabia
* SARS and MERS - now regular outbreaks
* Crimean-Congo fever - 30% of people die and first appearing in Western Europe in 2010
* Chikuyunga - spread by mosquitos and monkeys and spread across Africa and Asia, and into America in 2014
* Zika - suddenly leaping into the Americas in 2014 and the Brazil Olympics scare
* Thrombo Syndrome - across East Asia and USA and spread by ticks

All with about a 30% casualty rate forecasted.

While Malaria and HIV and TB each kill 1M people each year for nothing more extravagant than nets and condoms and pills.

While WHO has gone even further and with the AMR antibacterial crisis of failing antibiotics not defeating new permutations of TB or tetanus, and detailed the 12 key AMR research areas.

I'm working on a more detailed article and it's certainly not rushing off to your doctor for jabs or anything like that. It really isn't - and the vaccines don't exist yet anyway which is part of the issue.

And why Discovery Park and Sittingbourne Science Park should be in overdrive. And projects such as Left is Life.

But it does highlight probably the most dangerous threat to UK from Pandemics.

And just look at the collapse of the NHS from a normal Winter.

And almost nothing done in UK for Pandemics - so far.

A very concerning report on UK policing in meltdown by the Police Inspectorate and Kent Police rather good and better than most.

Time for Change

* more later on Kent corruption and dodgy Thanet election etc and corrupt layers with High Courts as merely an ATM for layers. Judge Mann again criticised for weak cost controls P.8 in Indy - by the lawyers themselves(!). Funnily enough he scrutinised and approved the Glick/Hollingworth - One Essex Court and Steve Palmer PBi Law corrupt costs - even after(!) they'd confirmed the costs were false...You couldn't make it up.

Just imagine if you tried that.

Only The Crying Judge emerges with any credit.

Layers, barristers and judges above the law it seems.

Kent corruption: Channel 4 election expenses and Infratil crimes #1

Kent corruption trundles along.

And the 2015 election expenses have appeared again yesterday with Channel Four reporter chasing PM aide Nick Timothy down Whitehall:

You an read for yourself and the video is worth watching on how:

* the Thanet election run from Westminster/Whitehall
* local costs double what is allowed by jiggery-pokery in allocating them to national spend
* party volunteers/agents bussed in - and staying at the Ramsgate Harbour Hotel it seems - again highly dubious to say the least

You may remember I refused to stand in the election because of the blatant corruption.

One Tory leaflet I have says Craig Mackinlay lives in Ramsgate.

Utter tripe.

Even with quickly renting a flat to pretend as with Paul Nuttal in Stoke or indeed Farage in Thanet.

They may as well be in John OGroats.

LocalCraig lives in Chatham. Works in Chatham and was at the time the KCC councilor for Chatham. And even a magistrate for Chatham.

The doublehatter syndrome again - desperate to crowd out the opposition and grab a few extra salaries.

And elected to be elected in order to be elected - to do nothing.

One of the wider points being the collapse UK democracy in to parachute candidates - as with Laura Sandys previously - parachuted into an area with no knowledge etc. Then characters like Nick Timothy write their manifesto for them in the vaguest possible terms.

You know the sort of thing: reducing crime, insert name here, working for you, insert constituency etc.

Why doesn't Nick Timothy come down to Thanet and explain the Manston policy?

A photoshoot with a foaming glass of Thor mercury water?

Even Theresa May - Nick's boss - Boris and William Hague popped in for a quick photoshoot and grip and grin for 5 minutes and onto somewhere else.

It's exactly why people don't vote. Why bother?

It's not just the Tories it's systemic.

Farage ducks and dives as to whether he's resigned for UKIP or is an MEP or shock jock

Latchford and Wells turncoat to UKIP as their Tory roles collapse with the Gang of Four and Shonk and Heale prove useless.

We now have Ramsgate Labour with the dodgy charity donations pretending it's acceptable. This was the party that unanimously voted for the ChinaGate corruption and their largest ever party donation.

And remains silent on Pleasurama and Manston - even the 0% salary fraud by Latchford et al if they wanted to be party political.

While Manston and the Infrail crimes were actually Tory and UKIP policy - and still are - PM May may now regret allowing Nick Timothy to include that in he Kent manifesto.

Even footballer, PHD and astronaut Nuttall couldn't make up Infratil and TDC and KCC removing the airport monitors and faking the data for years. Hence the $1 rapid selloff of all Infratil's airports except Wellington in NZ.

But there's another systemic problem or two:

* UK elections are regulated by the Electoral Commission but they bounce any problems to the local police - it's 2 years since 20(!) police forces have been investigating the 2015 election fraud, including Kent Police and they've done nothing.

* A political police - not even Special Branch wiretapping MP's or GCHQ steaming open every email - but run of the mill Plod is struggling to do more than protect their pensions and call for more tax funds for failure. Even struggling on the basics of rape and road deaths - all significantly up in Kent.

Drones and tasers and helicopters and water cannon won't reduce those.

Perhaps Kent needs independent election observers by the OESCE from say Chad or Albania to review the free and fair elections. All the more bizarre that Roger Gale MP heads off to check on elections in Africa. What is he teaching them given the collapse of Kent?

Cancer victims from almost 10 years of Infratil/KCC/TDC faking the pollution monitors - from 2005 to now - and illegal overflights and night flight and banned flights will be harder to quantify.

* And the election supervisor - paid £250k - is the local council CEO: Madeline Homer in Thanet's instance. Again stuffing memos into her ears to pretend that she has no responsiility in running the elections and bouncing it to Kent Police. Even blatant illegality like the LibDems having a standing civil servant standing.

It's even more blatantly illegal than being a judge.

At least corrupt judges like Lord Grabiner and his One Essex Court fraudsters Glick QC and Hollingworth are keeping their heads down. Maybe they'll keep their Bar roles and be hired for a judicial review? At the very least Infratil could hire them as Britain's most bent Bar.

* Even TDC's lawyer the rascally Tim Howes prefers to spend a year after the AntiCorruption Summit refusing to raise Pleasurama etc - take the £100k salary and keep shtum. Maybe a payoff and pension to keep shtum. Or a Buggins Turn to another civil service dept.

Thanet and Kent corruption stinks.

And it stinks more than most. This isn't new.

Simply scroll down this blog or many others. The Government itself rates TDC as one of the worst councils in UK ad that hasn't changed in years - even last years' the dodgy Pleasurama £3M sale and GIAA £500k civil service Port fraud confirms that.

Even for Thanet though the Infratil and Pleasurama crimes and now rampant and now repeated election fraud is special.

Time for Change

* my view later this week on who to vote for and who not to vote for - of course the decision on whether you vote and how you vote is yours.

* you may want to question your councilors on the above - and consider if it's worth voting for any doublehatter or anyone who's been at TDC for more than say 10 years. If not 10 minutes.
