Canterbury, England

Mar 26 2011 Published by under Local

Canterbury is a beautiful medieval town with a great Cathedral. St. Augustine, the first Archbishop of Canterbury, founded a church there in 597. The cathedral became a major pilgimage site after Knights loyal to King Henry II murdered Thomas a Becket as he prepared to say evening prayers on December 29, 1170.

his video was taken on Thursday 1st 10 2009 night following a protest about cuts in jobs and possibly services due to the conservative councils recklessness overseas investment in iceland banks. It is also one of the most secretive councils in england were infomation on what is going to be discussed is hard to ascertain. Some councilors can refuse to be recorded by audio so the public dont know the kind of people they elect and they wont allow video recordings even though it is in the publics interest. Conservative MP Julian Brazier was also apparently in attendance but i did not see him or hear him. CCC has also employed 10 more council executives in the last 4 years bringing the number of executives employed by the council to 35 who each are on over £50 000 each more than any council in England yet we dont know what they do. The citizens advice bureau also lost its funding be for the banks crashed and although its a charity poor people need it more now than ever. i would’nt put it passed this council to also cut some of our library’s. Kent county council are as bad and are also run by the conservatives and they are responsible for our roads. their is a big need for rented property but the council is more interested in giving land to private developers much of which is not sold and remains empty while people go homeless. times article on £3 million cuts by council plus the face of the man who tried to take camera from me the chief executive officer and Tory Councilor
