I am very pleased to see my colleague Dave Green back blogging again. Dave is one of the hardest working councillors in Thanet and has built up a considerable following in Eastcliff Ward. He has helped me with several tips to develop this blog and also in my general work as a councillor.
Dave comments about the cost of Standards Committee cases. I have blogged previously about vexatious abuse of the Standards Board system.
I saw this case recently which was literally a storm in a teacup. Dogmatic Conservative councillors in Tunbridge Wells cost local people over £7,000.
Having seen that the Local Government Standards Board regard comparing someone to Nazi Joseph Goebbels, who played his part in killing 6 million people as acceptable in political life, I will be amazed if Dave has posted something as offensive as that on his blog.
