According to "Your Thanet" Newspaper, next year, we're to get a vote on whether or not we want a Town Council in Ramsgate or not
Didn't we have a referendum the other year to decide this? What a wast of money organising yet another vote.
On one side, it looks like we could end up voting in more bureaucrats to waste our taxes on, but on the other, we already have a load that are wasting OUR money in the form of TDC organising this farce of a vote! Perhaps us Ramsgatonians will see sense and vote in people that will be more sensible - but I doubt that'll happen!
Of course G.O.D. (Gerry O'wotsit) is pleased that this is happening. Now I'm not going to knock the chap as he's really been passionate about this, but just how much money is all this voting malarchy costing us?
All I'll say on the matter is, if we do end up with a Town Council, don't just vote with your usual opinions on who's best, let's really look into who they are and what they can do for our town.
For what it's worth, Broadstairs seem to do just fine with one so who knows, it could be just the thing that Ramsgate needs.
The Jury's out on this one but it'll be interesting whatever happens
