NEW THANET MAGAZINE "OVERWHELMED BY SCANDAL STORIES"
A new Thanet magazine has been "overwhelmed" by stories of alleged private corruption, public incompetence and environmental cover-ups.
Mr Norman Thomas of Thanet Watch magazine, which was launched in March, said: "We knew there were some dodgy things going on locally -- we didn't know how much or how near the surface it was."
The big problem, Mr Thomas said, is checking the stories out before they can publish them.
"It's really frustrating, but we are limited by the number of people we have to deal with the things we're being told about.
"We are a community not-for-profit publication staffed by a small number of volunteers. It takes time and careful research to make sure our coverage is true and accurate. So if there are any would-be investigative journalists out there who'd like to help, please get in touch!"
"I promise we will get the stories out -- eventually," Mr Thomas said.
The new MAY issue of Thanet Watch is out this week. It includes:
-- "The Burning Question" -- the legacy of controversial deceased developer Jimmy Godden
-- The passionate debate over equal marriage for same sex partners
--What Nigel Farrage UK Independence party leader got up to in Broadstairs
-- Worrying developments in local health services
--Shops closing because of Ramsgate's new ASDA
--And a "modest proposal" to solve the problem of
's Arlington House. Margate
