|Simon Moores - Yesterday in Prague|
However, what strikes me most, is that the debate is solid and the meeting is remarkably well-behaved. That is until about 65 minutes in to the recording, when Cllr Ian Driver and Cllr Rick Everett both raise the temperature in the Council Chamber, beyond boiling point with provocative statements. You can of course freely judge for yourself and take a moment to see if my 'Tweet's at the time and my own commentary on this blog from the following day, does indeed tally with what happened, because I have been accused of making some of it up by some observers, who wouldn't believe how wild it became at times..
As you can imagine, I've some catching-up to do with letters, phone calls and email, so I will keep today's entry short. I really just wanted to let Westgate residents that an informal meeting to discuss the development of our own neighbourhood plan for the town is scheduled for next Friday 3rd may at 6pm and I'm thinking of asking if we can use Paul's Bar. If you would like to be involved and feel you can contribute to the conservation, heritage, legal or planning side of designing one, please let me know as skilled volunteers are most welcome if we are going to be successful in pushing through the first of its kind to appear in Thanet.
