East Kent fails. Time for Change @timg33




A few EK points:




* EK council next steps? Suggested budgets/responsibilities based on KCC budget etc

* No train stopping in Kent for Amsterdam Eurostar a concern

* also train commuter shuttle to Lille? and trams TG50? - that's the whole point of Ashford station

* Grenfell Tower review published: all EK tower blocks: fire/broken lifts/demolition etc and asbestos schools etc - also motorway bridges

* also demolition Arlington House Margate 60's eyesore tower block and open up Dreamland

* derelict/eyesore wind turbine demolition: c.200M form Richboro power station

* Dreamland and Paramount drift: timetable?

* Discovery Park and Sittingbourne inaction: outline plan? ie TB research /manufacture etc

* LCD panels in town centres

* public complaints over TV reception: Ofcom/BBC?

* EK tourism plan/festivals by month/year?

* halt Pav Wetherspoons - Ramsgate Lloyds?

* clear Pleasurama site - and clear it/$1 CPO/Review: another Summer lost and derelict eyesore.

* cancel Riveroak (and Parkway - KCC refund): aquifer review and protection




Writing on the wall in Ramsgate: "You voted Mackinlay??!!": @timg33




Lame Duck MP's/TDC: every senior councillor voted out in recent elections. Tiem fro vote of no confidence - are we really supposed to wait 2 years to be rid of these lame ducks?

Wells now announcing Riveroak's plans would - shock horror well I never - include night flights is laughable. He didn't realise that? Rather, we've had game=-playing on the damage caused by Manston and Infratil etc since UKIP won the 2015 election to reopen the site then quickly cancelled it.

How polluted is the aquifer and what cleanup has been done? Why has the extradition process for Infratil directors not begun?


* KCC Int links: Virginia /Hungary refreshed? ANd East Europe: Romania etc.



* Good a new campaign on press/radio as Kent vaccinations: below 83% safety level: Pandemics.



KP/Blue Light policy on vaccinations etc? And Left is Life? KP liaison with hospitals/new vaccines?



* I couldn't attend KP Blue Blowers concert at Broadstairs - is there a set list/video?





Garbutt for Mayor 2019 or sooner.

Time for Meiji Kent reforms.

Garbutt for Ramsgate Mayor: May 2019 - or sooner @timg33


Just a few quick points:

* what an awful election - for Kent and UK. Just awful. Indeed: nothing has changed, nothing has changed - except more stagnation

* many thanks to those who voted for me on Thursday and obviously it's disappointing not to win but there we are. Please contact me if you want change in Thanet and Kent: email timgarbutt@yahoo.com and Twitter: @timg33

* To vote Independent against Rosettes makes a big difference in national elections - and the vote would be significant for any TDC or KCC council

* My policies below - for Garbutt as Ramsgate Mayor 2019 - or sooner

* Clearly Robot Rosette votes can only explain the Blue-Red votes and no other parties - and words fail me as to Craig Mackinlay being re-elected given the election fraud trial

* Interesting that a Generation Gap is opening up in politics with more young voters amid concern over Brexit and the awful Dementia Tax etc. Clearly Thanet's over-70s councillors are of the past and have failed

* I refused to attend the election night count in protest - and one of the main Ramsgate hotel guests Nick Timothy, Theresa May's beard, no doubt sacked soon (within 2 hours of writing this they were)

* Indeed Thanet South may see 2 more MP elections in 2017: the July trial by-election and then October another national election

But Thanet has seen not just the wipeout of the UKIP vote - and Brexit - but also every senior TDC/KCC UKIPer now rejected: Wells, Heale, Shonk, Piper and Fairbrass.

TDC is a lame duck council with lame duck MP's and national government.

Nothing done since 2015. And before: I've never heard of most of the MP candidates just popping up a week or so before the election and now disappearing.

Garbutt for Ramsgate Mayor 2019 - or sooner.

Or same-old same-old stagnation.

Policies below and regular updates on Twitter: @timg33

Time for a council tax strike - slowpay, wrongpay, refusepay - to take back Ramsgate's £17M tax to spend in Ramsgate and create East Kent Council.

Let Mackinlay and Gale raise any shortfall from Parliament.

Plus extra investment.

More details later.

Top 3 priorities for South Thanet?

1. Close Manston airport completely and dig up the runway – with a $1 CPO to end the SHP New Town and Parkway farce. And to clean and refill the East Kent aquifer that is under the runway.

2. Extradite and jail the Infratil directors and Police investigation into the removal of the Manston monitors and faking of pollution data with TDC and KCC.

3. End the corruption around Pleasurama, and shoddy governance around Pavilion etc, with tax havens such as Belize and Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands in main Kent projects

All of these could be put in place Minute #1 of Day #1 of Garbutt in Parliament.

These policies would end the sloth and dirt that the various parties and council administrations have allowed. TDC is one of the worst councils in UK according to the government itself(!) and Thanet has some of the highest deprivation in SE England.

And this with £2BN KCC budgets, £30M – not allowing for failures and corruption – at TDC and £400k at RTC.

KCC is overly-focused on Maidstone and TDC on Margate. And we have too many and too underpaid councillors. And too many and too overpaid civil servants.

The politicians and civil servants have repeatedly failed us and these policies will begin the change with an East Kent Council as a counterweight to West Kent and Medway.

Blatant travesties of justice as with the High Court of Corruption of Lord Grabiner of BHS and One Essex Court legal criminals and close and cleanup Thor mercury factory near the Hornby Factory could be more easily implemented.

While I will ensure Climate Change – the greatest threat facing humanity – is top of the agenda in Kent. At the moment there are no Climate Change policies at all. So, that would include:

• all public sector buildings switching to renewable electricity

• public buildings with solar panels

• end plastic bag sales: Ocean Plastic and Beach clean


Clearly Brexit after just a year is an utter shambles, and I am completely opposed to it and the destructive effects here in East Kent to the tourism industry, universities and schools and exports.

If you are in the 48% Remain Group then vote for me.

If you are a Tory dissatisfied with Mackinlay’s Battlebus fraud and inaction vote for me.

If you are Labour and dissatisfied with the cosy Thanet deals and corruption then vote for me.

If you are Green or Libdem and concerned at Thanet’s invisible candidates then vote for me.

If you are under 30 then vote for me.

If you are UKIP – if they actually exist now - don’t vote for me. And we need a vote of no confidence in Well’s TDC: promising to reopen Manston then reversing that policy within a month of being elected given the known monitors and aquifer crimes.

Garbutt as an Independent will have the ear and support of every Party leader and Cabinet member in Westminster and Whitehall.



You can already see my success in my East Kent politics work so far:

•Manston closed


•Infratil airports in EU closed – and Rotorua NZ


•Total petrol stations in East Kent closed for Myanmar war crimes


•Margate’s Joshua French released from Congo Death Row


•Gang of Four sacked and jailed


•Richboro power station demolished


•Ramsgate Gasworks demolished


•ChinaGate cancelled


•Toxic Three now Toxic Two: KCC’s Carter and Wild


•BrettGate cement works end: phase 2 but not phase 1


•0% TDC salary fraud ended


As MP I will continue this work for Kent and regions such as ASEAN.

High Court of Corruption: Garbutt for South Thanet MP - Letter to Chief Constable Pughsley, Kent Police



Letter to Chief Constable Pughsley, Kent Police

Dear Chief

I wanted to write to you formally in the General Election campaign on the corruption and criminal points in my manifesto and highlight several of the criminal scoundrels:

1. Manston-Infratil crimes: the extradition of the Infratil directors from Wellington in New Zealand ie Fitzgerald and Clarke, and Bogoievski and Baker and TDC/KCC complicity in removing the monitors at Manston and faking the data from 2004 onwards

2. Charles Buchanan: similar points as 1 as but now in UK at Lydd airport

3. Gloag-Stagecoach: similar issues to point 1 ie banned aircraft and illegal overflights and failure to reinstate missing monitors and fines 2013-14

4. TDC-KCC complicity in both the above points: Berry, Button and Sproates and KCC Toxic Three now Two: Carter and Wild

5. Sangcom/GPT MOD Saudi arms deals frauds continue: part of Al-Yamamah with former Thanet MP Jonathan Aitken jailed

6. Margate's Joshua French was released from Congo Death Row last week – so no longer a UK Police issue

7. Lord Grabiner: the disgraced "apogee" Chair of BHS/Taveta: secret shareholders - astonishingly still a High Court judge and bizarrely a barrister too - in effect sitting both sides of the bench and marking his own homework

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2016/05/01/lord-grabiner-to-be-quizzed-by-mps-over-bhs-collapse/

8. Ian Glick QC and Guy Hollingworth complicit with clerks in - also of One Essex Court - false and fraudulent costs in High Court and false imprisonment

http://www.oeclaw.co.uk/barristers/592/ian-glick
http://www.oeclaw.co.uk/barristers/profile/guy-hollingworth

9. Judge Mann, Crying Judge and Teacups Judge - aiding and abetting as point 8

10. BSB and Law Society incompetence and coverup: Leavor QC, One Essex Court barristers and clerks etc - clearly a wider parliament and police review of the failing self-regulation of the courts is needed

11. PBI Law: Steve Palmer Hollingworth's accomplice as point 8

http://www.pbip.com/about-pb-ip/team
https://www.linkedin.com/in/ukstevepalmer/?ppe=1

12. Messrs Conway and Kelly of Law Step: posing as - and/or aiding and abetting - HMRC officials:

https://www.lawrencestephens.com/people/andrew-conway/
https://www.lawrencestephens.com/people/lawrence-kelly/


13. Thor Mercury Margate and Cato Ridge: Environment Agency (and Manston role given the East Kent drinking water aquifer under the runway)

14. The blatant Tory 2015 election fraud - the largest in UK history - trial now underway with Craig Mackinlay as scapegoat for 30 MP's and Party HQ Battlebus bussing in supporters and obviously issues of wider electoral reform

The Manston crimes would only pollute the c.130,000 people in East Kent - with resulting increases in cancer - but it is worth noting that the Manston weather station and pollution monitors are one of the key facets of London and South East England's weather and pollution network. The faked data would skew the air pollution figures upwards already c.50k UK deaths.

It’s also worth noting the cost to the taxpayer in lost fines revenue, increased tax cost, and time and damage to HMRC and legal system.

And a wider issue remains around UK national security with flights by Cargolux now based at Stansted and KLM - perhaps piloted by the Dutch King given recent reports - but especially gunrunning and drugs flights - including UN sanctions for blood diamonds etc - as well as Afghan KAM Air and Egyptair via Ostend airport just a few minutes fly-time across the Channel.

Obviously Manston closed in 2014 after being sold for $1 and all the other UK and Europan airports as the directors fled to NZ, but in my MP role I've urged no a no-expense-spared to bring back Infratil's directors: orange jumpsuits, leg-irons and handcuffs.

Corrupt barristers and lawyers and judges are almost an axiom in the UK legal system, with libel tourism for Russian oligarchs etc, but obviously an issue if caught.

And as you know all the above aren’t now denied merely coverup and silence.

Please consider this a formal police statement and/or witness statement and please advise if you require any further information.

How East Kent won D-Day with Fortitude. Garbutt MP for South Thanet 8th June - Stand down Craig


The 6th June is fitting to recall East Kent's role with General Patton in D-Day, the greatest invasion ever.

With 2,700 ships - plus another 1,900 landing craft - with a first wave of 130,000 soldiers and 2,000 tanks and another 12,000 vehicles the stakes were high.
The Russians were urging an invasion, having taken the brunt of the carnage on the Eastern Front. And Allied troops were grinding away in Southern Italy and at the Salerno landings, as at Dieppe earlier, almost thrown back into the sea.

A failed invasion of France would extend the war by at least another year - bad weather in the Summer had already rescheduled the invasion.

Frontline Kent is familiar with the power of Channel storms and Goodwin Sands tides. And a BBC documentary also detailed the isolated Galway Bay weather station detecting Atlantic storms so delaying D-Day 5th June to 6th June.

While just two weeks after D-Day the innovations of Seabee Mulberry harbours and PLUTO (over 1.5M tons of steel and concrete) were destroyed in fierce storms. Fair stands the wind for France not always in the Channel.

Moreell's contribution in Seabee efforts from Trinidad (calypso steel drums music originating in fabrications from Seabee leftover fuel drums) through Tarawa to Tinian, was recognised as - with echoes of John Paul Vann - the only nonserviceman to become a USN Admiral.

A delayed or failed D-Day and Hitler could have developed nuclear weapons for New York or Moscow - and certainly expanded V1 and V2 rocket attacks on Kent and London or any future landing grounds.

Hence Fortitude North and Fortitude South.

Fortitude North was one of Churchill's wackier ideas to invade Norway and Denmark - but commando raids and bombers pinned down 12 divisions of German troops in Norway and 6 in Denmark. Far from Normandy or Kursk.

Fortitude South from Kent was to persuade the German High Command that the D-Day invasion would take place around Calais and not Normandy.
Paul Kennedy's "Engineers of Victory" book on page 257 details:

"American and British theatrical backroom staff ... and set designers joined the war effort. Tens of thousands of inflatable full-sized tanks and trucks were openly arrayed across fields near Kentish ports...and a stupendously effective and total blackout was imposed across the counties of Hampshire, Dorset and Devon where the real invasion armies lay...A not very happy General Patton with a recognisable radio sign was temporarily dispatched to take command of this mythic army."

While the ultra-secret work of the now-famous Bletchley Park codebreakers, and XX DoubleCross German agents in UK, created the sounds and movement of an Army Group Patton. And also safely shepherded the troop convoys across the Atlantic and Channel away from Uboats - a danger evidenced and still present in the SS RIchard Montgomery LendLease explosives ship:

"overestimating the number of German divisions bivouacked in Kent, the Wehrmacht kept no fewer than 19 of its own divisions in the Pas-De-Calais region (4 behind Dunkirk alone)...with only 18 divisions between the Seine and the Loire."

Astonishingly, Fortitude reduced by over half the number of troops around Normandy.

As did Hobart’s Funnies of ingenious flail tanks for destroying mines etc.

The Germans were convinced not only that the invasion would be at Calais but even when D-Day occurred, that the Normandy landings were a diversion. Two German tank divisions were actually recalled back to Calais from Normandy as late as 10th June.

Just one extra SS tank division in Normandy awaiting the landings, would have increased the acres and acres of Commonwealth War Graves sites.

Bloody Omaha as depicted in the opening scenes of Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan movie - or Pointe Du Hoc - would have been far bloodier.

And even, as planned, Nelson's Column relocated as war booty -from a renamed Totenkopf Square rather than Trafalgar Square?- to Berlin.

As late as 3rd July(!) General Jodl believed Army Group Patton would invade Calais with 18 infantry divisions and 6 armoured divisions and 5 airborne divisions.

And by then of course the German divisions could not move due to the Allied air forces, and French Resistance, bombing of roads and railways and bridges.

And these days with the good folks of Liberation Route EU - supported by Martin Schulz former President of EU and now German Chancellor candidate this Autumn - Fortitude is ideal for East Kent to fast-forward tourism activity and with the Jorvik-style Landings Attraction.

That all the more apt in the celebrations of the Battle of Medway #BOM350 and no doubt Margate and Opal Coast's role in the Spanish Armada.

Kent's WW2 heritage, whether Dunkirk Little Ships or Baedeker raids or Channel Dash or MTB boats or Hellfire Corner, or with Blitz fears of another Guernica, Ramsgate Cu Chi-style Tunnels or even the more mundane yet rare Anderson Shelters, is a rich seam to mine.

As is its lesser-known WW1 heritage with Ramsgate in particular as the main Canadian military, and Canadian Red Cross base, or Ashford preserved WW1 tank, as the WW1 100 anniversary draws to a close in 2018.

And wider calls to recognise the Chinese Labour Corps and Vietnamese Labour Corps as well as Indian, Sikh and Japan and Thailand contributions to the WW1 Allies.

Perhaps it’s all the more fitting with Chartwell and Chevening just a few miles away, and a few years earlier, Ramsgate as Wellington's headquarters for invading Europe and defeating Napoleon at Waterloo.

But there is no doubt East Kent had helped win D-Day with General Patton and his invisible army, under SACEUR then POTUS Eisenhower.

* I am astonished Craig Mackinlay MP hasn't resigned over the blatant election fraud in South Thanet: the largest election fine ever. And if he were to be elected - by Party rosettes and low turnout - and then convicted there would need to be another election?

Outrageous.

Stand down Craig.

I refuse to attend the election night count in protest at this blatant election fraud: the whole election expenses budget spent in just one hotel to bus in supporters. It's beyond innocent until proven guilty and as plain as the nose on your face.

No wonder he's silent on Kent corruption at Pleasurama etc.

Stand down Craig.

Garbutt for South Thanet MP: Thanet interview on MP manifesto



An Interview from Isle of Thanet News below. Apparently they're worried about some of the corruption points being libellous in their view - and even the Battlebus already with the largest ever UK election fine and want to censor them:

https://theisleofthanetnews.com/general-election-2017-south-thanet-candidates-in-the-spotlight/

But below is the full article as provided:

Clearly it's an interesting compare and contrast and raises questions over the accuracy of Kent reporting - just today KM published their list of candidates for South Thanet and couldn't even get that right:

http://www.kentonline.co.uk/election/south-thanet/

The correct list:


https://www.thanet.gov.uk/media/3855681/south-thanet-statement-of-persons-nominated-notice-of-poll-and-situation-of-persons-nominated.pdf




A. Please state your name, party and occupation (if applicable)

Tim Garbutt, Independent.

Advertising and Marketing Consultant.

I describe the campaign as “Stop the Pollution. Stop the Construction. Stop the Corruption”. Time for Change

Twitter: @timg33

Blog: http://lovekentloveramsgate.blogspot.co.uk/2017/05/garbutt-mp-let-1000-flowers-bloom-in.html



B. What are your top 3 priorities for South Thanet?

1. Close Manston airport completely and dig up the runway – with a $1 CPO to end the SHP New Town and Parkway farce. And to clean and refill the East Kent aquifer that is under the runway.

2. Extradite and jail the Infratil directors and Police investigation into the removal of the Manston monitors and faking of pollution data with TDC and KCC.

3. End the corruption around Pleasurama, and shoddy governance around Pavilion etc, with tax havens such as Belize and Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands in main Kent projects

All of these could be put in place Minute #1 of Day #1 of Garbutt in Parliament.

These policies would end the sloth and dirt that the various parties and council administrations have allowed. TDC is one of the worst councils in UK according to the government itself(!) and Thanet has some of the highest deprivation in SE England.

And this with £2BN KCC budgets, £30M – not allowing for failures and corruption – at TDC and £400k at RTC.

KCC is overly-focused on Maidstone and TDC on Margate. And we have too many and too underpaid councillors. And too many and too overpaid civil servants.

The politicians and civil servants have repeatedly failed us and these policies will begin the change with an East Kent Council as a counterweight to West Kent and Medway.

Blatant travesties of justice as with the High Court of Corruption of Lord Grabiner of BHS and One Essex Court legal criminals and close and cleanup Thor mercury factory near the Hornby Factory could be more easily implemented.

While I will ensure Climate Change – the greatest threat facing humanity – is top of the agenda in Kent. At the moment there are no Climate Change policies at all. So, that would include:

• all public sector buildings switching to renewable electricity

• public buildings with solar panels

• end plastic bag sales: Ocean Plastic and Beach clean

• increase wonky fruit and veg and end food waste in supermarkets and schools and farms etc

• increase recycling from 40% in Thanet - and coffecup recycling and bottle deposit schemes

• increase Fairtrade goods in supermarkets and shops and public sector procurement

• measured expansion – and robust scrutiny - of Vattenfall’s Thanet windfarm with free electricity

• treeplanting and hedgerows for biodiversity eg bees and India 50M trees in one day

• increase electric car charging points and electric buses/public sector cars/vans

• develop graphene products at Kent University/CCU and vaccine research with Pfizer

• expand pedestrianisation of town centres and seafront

• while 30 minutes a week school lessons on Climate Change and Red Cross first aid and Yingluck computers would be useful



C. What are the most important economic factors for South Thanet and how do you aim to boost them? (ie tourism)

Improving the town centres and Discovery Park after the loss of 5,000 jobs out of 7,000 are two vital economic policies.

In many towns the public would be horrified at the loss of 5,000 jobs rather than the lies and deceit of 50 jobs at Manston. Especially the 21st Century #STEM jobs in pharma and tech that are the future for Young Kent and Future UK.

While the decay in the town centres is plain to see after ludicrous town planning such as Westwood Cross the-out-of-town-shopping-centre-next –to the town-centres. And still the nonsense overbuild of a 4th Town Centre.

The continued secrecy and lies at TDC and KCC even with FOI restricts any candidate or member of the public from being able to evaluate public sector policies.

EKFOS – EK film office and studio and JazzWat – Buddhist temple and jazz club would all create Creative Industries jobs.

The 2nd swimming pool: 50M Olympics and ice rink instead of £1M fire station would be part of a cohesive Regeneration of disused/derelict sites eg Develop old gasworks site and Old Police Station in Ramsgate.

Perhaps Craig Mackinlay outgoing Tory MP – or the other invisible candidates -should be encouraged to bring the Nick Timothy Battlebus of Party HQ tourists back to boost the economy of local hotels?

It’s one coach trip we’re unlikely to see again.



D. What would you aim to do in regards to housing and homelessness for South Thanet?

This isn’t one of my main policies for development as Thanet has the highest number of empty homes in Kent.

And Kent has c.28k empty homes.

We need repairs and bringing back into use not more newbuild.

Hence the absurdity of SHP Manston New Town or housebuilding at Discovery Park or the Westwood 4th town Centre.

Clearly KCC has been infected with a cement culture of construction councillors and glory-protect civil servants. While the Developers Group at KCC of construction companies ensures every problem looks like a cement problem.

While the national policy of housebuilding promises – and fluff of Garden Cities -has never achieved more than c.80k new build per year.

While basic policing such as picking up the homeless from the town centres or Tent City – along with Streetdrinker Square and heroin Alley - and placing them in hostels is viable given the No Night Homeless policy already in place in London.

Either the police are overwhelmed or they can’t be bothered – and certainly funding more tech kit won’t be a substitute for the elbow grease of sustained effort.



E. The health service is going through transformational change. What services are priority for South Thanet and how should they be implemented?

Clearly the public have been badly-served by Kent NHS: most if not all hospitals in Special Measures. 12 GP’s struck off for incompetence. And SE Ambulance in Special Measures. And asbestos deaths in schools. And major pollution and cancer scandals such as Manston-Infratil and Thor mercury.

The current NHS reviews seem to be Backoffice reorganisation for bloated salaries and pensions and not in the best interests of Public Health. Yet again there seems a wilful ignorance of the requirement for 3 hospitals in East Kent given the travel distances involved at the coast.

I will support a public-led review of NHS performance – free and excellent - on the above including Resilience and Pandemic preparedness and support the Julian Brazier East Kent Medical School in Canterbury to ensure East Kent has enough nurses and doctors And ASEAN international programmes.

As well as a Medical Commissioner and Education Commissioner to focus NHS and School efforts as with the Police Commissioner – and ensure a focus beyond pensioner health and needs.

And improve Public Health on Tobacco, Road Safety Heroin and Cocaine – an outrageous failure with the most drug deaths ever.

The Tory Dementia Tax is utterly repulsive as is ending Winter Fuel – and as foolish as foxhunting or nationalisation or a penny tax on everything - and should be revoked with a full review of Social Care for an Ageing Population.



F. Thanet has one of the highest unemployment rates in Kent. How would you aim to tackle this as an MP?

The above points are all viable parts of the plan and I would initially increase unemployment through P45 reform of the failing public sector.

Then focus on Youth employment and a Locate in East Kent function to boost apprenticeships and larger employers at Discovery Park. And greater coordination of schools, colleges and universities with an overhaul of wasteful Beckham Studies courses.

Unemployment would be far higher without the padding of employment courses, part-time jobs and zero hours contracts.

The missing 5,000 jobs could be replaced and increased with a further 3,000 jobs ie vaccine production for UNSDG30 eg TB and malaria nets manufacturers.

As always the Manston airport talk of 20,000 jobs is utter nonsense to whitewash the monitor crimes – and a part of the foolish belief that one sector or one project could instantly replace decades of decline.

And a tourism focus as part of the East Kent Council and Benelux etc strategies will need to be built eg Kent Orchids, Spanish Armada, Fortitude-Patton and Dunkirk Little Ships and Van Gogh.

While local banks need to pull together from bank head office cuts, with Town Commerce Groups and local lending etc.

Clearly Brexit after just a year is an utter shambles, and I am completely opposed to it and the destructive effects here in East Kent to the tourism industry, universities and schools and exports.

If you are in the 48% Remain Group then vote for me.

If you are a Tory dissatisfied with Mackinlay’s Battlebus fraud and inaction vote for me.

If you are Labour and dissatisfied with the cosy Thanet deals and corruption then vote for me.

If you are Green or Libdem and concerned at Thanet’s invisible candidates then vote for me.

If you are under 30 then vote for me.

If you are UKIP – if they actually exist now -don’t vote for me. And we need a vote of no confidence in Well’s TDC: promising to reopen Manston then reversing that policy within a month of being elected given the known monitors and aquifer crimes.

Garbutt as an Independent will have the ear and support of every Party leader and Cabinet member in Westminster and Whitehall.



G. What experience would you bring to the role of MP?

I’ve several decades in advertising and marketing for business clients across various market sectors and regeneration projects such as Cardiff Bay and tourism clients.

And the public can see my success in my East Kent politics work so far:

•Manston closed


•Infratil airports in EU closed – and Rotorua NZ


•Total petrol stations in East Kent closed for Myanmar war crimes


•Margate’s Joshua French released from Congo Death Row


•Gang of Four sacked and jailed


•Richboro power station demolished


•Ramsgate Gasworks demolished


•ChinaGate cancelled


•Toxic Three now Toxic Two: KCC’s Carter and Wild


•BrettGate cement works end: phase 2 but not phase 1


•0% TDC salary fraud ended


As MP I will continue this work for Kent and regions such as ASEAN.

•end Invesco UK investment in OrbitalATK USA and Textron cluster bombs manufacture – and phosphorous


•end KCC public sector pensions in Fossil Fuels and Tobacco


•Demolish Arlington House 160’s tower block eyesore


•instigate Conflict Minerals Ban eg Coltan in DRC Congo in computers/phones


•instigate G20 to achieve 0.7% GNI aid target


•UN disarmament: nuclear/WMD and naval


•EU arms exports ban outside of EU


•Tobacco: over 25 and store permits


•#Space: Kent research ie satellites and space junk


•End Landfill: site clearance


•End NATO 2% target: UK 2.3% and EU average 1.3%


•Kent orchards


•Brexit: 48% cancel



Thanet has failed. Thanet party politics has failed. Thanet’s pensioners have failed the next generations.

Garbutt MP: let 1,000 flowers bloom in Meiji Kent. And beyond.


Tim Garbutt candidate MP for South Thanet in East Kent in 8th June election said:

"Actually it should be 1,912 flowers not 1,000 that should bloom across East Kent. And not just any old flowers but the rare Kent Orchids.

Orchids are the flower of East Kent - indeed they should probably feature on the East Kent flag of a white horse on a green background.

And a gift of 1,912 Kent Orchids would form the basis of Meiji Kent Flower Diplomacy with USA and Japan to commemorate the 1912 donation of 3,000 cherry blossom trees from the mayor of Tokyo to Washington DC.

And apt for the Johnny Appleseed programme of Climate Change.

East Kent's famous orchids should also be used to build greater links with Japan and USA and other nations across ASEAN and the Levant and Africa.
And of course our near-neighbours in Benelux and Europe.

As MP I will be urging KCC's $3BN budget and Foreign Office and - a reformed British Council after the Myanmar scandal -funds to encourage the orchid industry as well as the beautification of our towns and villages.

And, fittingly with the Visit Kent Tourism initiative on Battle of Medway #BOM350, reviving the Battle of Flowers.

In the first instance orchids should be prioritised for Virginia, USA and Japan ie for Fukuoka and Virginia Beach, and Osaka of course, and Beaufort, North Carolina with San Diego.

And of course Ostend in Flanders and Calais on the Opal Coast and Rotterdam.

Consideration should also be given to the existing twin towns as well as Arnhem and Almeria and Ramsgate and Margate in South Africa and Australia. While the dusty KCC links to Hungary, and Poland, Bulgaria and Romania should be revived.

How absurd that Canterbury and CCU University – and the Broadstairs tourism campus -with one of the largest Romanian populations outside Bucharest has no Sister City programmes in place.

While a fresh look needs to be taken on how the various Japan and USA think-tanks and societies and university courses are funded and coordinated if UK is to achieve its export aims already some 17 years behind schedule.

So that 1,000 flowers can bloom rather than the usual rash of cement projects poisoning the well of political discourse - and sustainable economic and cultural development - in The Garden Of England.

• Time for vote of no confidence in TDC: the latest UKI(P defection back to Tories means almost a hung council: 28 UKIP to 27 non-UKIP
