Local Politics - Who killed the Colonel ?

More local politics from the 1880's, including a poster "Who killed the colonel ? ". I not sure of what they are getting at as it has a very Victorian meaning.
 I have attached more posters from Thanet's political past and some go as far as stopping just short of accusations of corruption. Some also relate to the time when James Lowther stood as parliamentary candidate in Ramsgate. Most of what I have does relate to Margate and some to Ramsgate. however, the Ramsgate items are very tame compared to what happened in Margate at the time.
