Councillor Ian Driver says Thanet Council is institutionally homophobic, racist and sexist.
He’s determined to drag it kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.
And he believes two councillors, Ken Gregory and Mike Harrison, should be drummed out of the chamber for their behaviour.
“Thanet really is another planet when it comes to treating people with respect,” he says, “It’s like we’re in a parallel university.”
A rally for equal rights in Thanet is planned for Thursday July 12 in Hawley Square, Margate, at 5pm, followed by a march on the council building.
