Last evening one member broke the rules of that Constitution. As a result the meeting had to be rescheduled.
This involved a cost (financial) to the people of Thanet..to the Councillors who wasted their time...and to the staff who had their lives put on hold without need! (oh and of course the Public and Press, who turned up without need).
The place to change the rules is at the Annual Meeting of the Council! Until changed those rules should be followed. (If you want the right to talk on your mobile without 'hands free' Get Parliament to change the rules...do not ignore the rule because you do not like it).
If you do not agree with the rules.....try to change them...or leave the 'Club'!

The politcal leanings of TDC were of little import in the system, any Council would have to do similar.
An interesting take on the enforcement of the system is coming from central government. It seems that fines should be issued as a last resort against people who put the wrong stuff in the wrong bin! Lets hope that TDC do not use the enforcement system as a 'Cash Cow'

Having spent 18 months keeping a low profile, I have concluded that its about time to get back into the thick of it and be proactive again...over the next few days I will be putting a few 'stories' into their right boxes.. and , I promise, not getting my own back. I hope you will bear with me, Comment moderation will be on, but I will promise to publish anything that is not actionable!
