I've been out canvassing in Westgate today with Cllr Goodwin and our MP, Roger Gale. It's been revealing to hear what people think about our local government and what most concerns them; i.e. rubbish and wheelie bins, the state of Margate, Westwood Cross development and the height of the barrier at the rubbish tip, to name but a few.
What struck me most however, is the strength of feeling against the present government and while I found two people who "don't vote" and several "undecided", by far the great majority want to use their vote to send a very 'Blue' message of protest on May 3rd and expressed their support, so thank you to any of you who have discovered ThanetLife as a consequence of my doorstep visit.
I'll be running around much of Westgate in the coming weeks to see as many people as possible but please drop me a note if there's some issue that needs a doorstep answer.
