  1. Hope the scumbag dies. How many police officers have you seen anywhere in Thanet let alone in Northdown Rd. Give Mr. Gale a call and ask him what he thinks. Don’t bother, he’ll just spurt out the same old bullshit about how they’ve had to save money as the last Labour government had left us in debt having spent all that money building schools and hospitals, something the tories absolutely abhor, using tax payers money to provide education and care to us plebes, when there’s all those big corporations desperate for a tax break so they pay their directors massive salaries.
    Looks like the country have finally got the message and will have this lot out in their ears soon. Good riddance.
