Last year Laura Sandys apologised unequivocally for failing to follow planning rules following an article I wrote.
Last week I wrote on how she had been asked to leave Ramsgate train station for infringing rules.
Now a "Labour activist" writes on Laura Sandys latest misdemeanours....
The 'Ubiquitous Blonde' doesn't know where the South Thanet and North Thanet constituencies are so has billboards in North Thanet in various farmers' fields presumably with their consent. One at Minster, one near Hornby Hobbies, one near QEQM Hospital on St. Peter's Road. Probably more but I haven't seen them all.
Now, I've been on to Richard Samuel Thanet District Councils Chief Executive and planning expert Steve Albon who say 'Nothing we can do' but....
A planning expert tells me advertisements are not allowed on roads considered 'accident blackspots' which St. Peter's Road, Margate near the QEQM Hospital is. That's why there is a 50mph speed limit.
So, technically, one breach of convention (posters in someone else's constituency) and one breach of other rules, advertising on a black-spot road thereby causing a distraction for motorists.
If this woman doesn't know the rules how can she expect to be taken seriously as a political candidate?"
I do hope Cliftonville and Margate Conservative County Councillors Chris Wells and Michael Jarvis, and Villages Conservative County Councillor Charles Hibberd will look into this, as I understand this is a matter for Kent County Council highways.
Time for another "unequivocal apology" Laura Sandys, but can you give an unequivocal apology a second time on the same subject??
