Over the next four weeks I expect the political content of the local blog scene will intesify as we enter the local elections. As for myself I will be standing as a Labour candidate for Central Harbour Ward for Ramsgate Town Council and for the first time since 1987 I will not be standing as a candidate for Thanet District Council.
For the first time in a generation local government in Thanet is facing its toughest period since the end of the Second World War and for those brave souls who do get elected I would think "challenging" would best describe the task that lies ahead. I am sure taking into consideration what has being going on around us all recently most people have do a fair idea which way they are going to vote.
However, I have added onto my bloglist a summary of the Labour TDC manifesto for information and the details of the Thanet Labour Blog for those interested.
I can assure regular readers of my blog that I am not going to ram politics down peoples throats as I feel elections are all about meeting people and doorstep canvassing. Plus my blog is about the Thanet Coast, its environment and history. My Blog is not local politics in general.
