NO POSSIBILITY OF ANOTHER DANE VALLEY ELECTION IN THE NEAR FUTURE
As the electorate of Dane Valley, at least those who bothered to vote on a miserable wet day and evening, (Polling does not finish until 10pm), await the outcome to be declared tomorrow, those who might have expected news of another election, will have to wait.
Margate's Mayor, Cllr Watt-Ruffell, a Conservative member for Dane Valley Ward; The 'Ezekiel Party's Chief Whip; member of Planning Committtee; ex-Labour Member for Westgate; rejected Labour Candidate ; employee of Panama Broadhurst's Security firm (is that Probe?); custodian of Dreamland's Scenic Railway; and a teetotal Methodist (as stated by 'Our Leader'), was represented today at Sittingbourne Magistrates by his solicitor Darren Neal who entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. It is reported that a full hearing of the case brought against him by the RSPCA will be heard on 10th-11th Feb 2010 in Sittingbourne.
Could I ask all readers, when commenting, that they bear in mind that the RSPCA's allegations are, until proved or otherwise, just that. We must all uphold the basic principle that anyone accused, is innocent until proved guilty and this applies to Margate's Mayor. I will delete, without reference to it, any comment that does not bear this principle in mind.
