Shepway Green Party Flatter to Deceive
On the 12th June 2020, The Shepway Green Party stated on their website the following:
We cannot stop Otterpool and it would be dishonest to pretend that we could. Indeed, the honest truth is that we never said we would…
This statement is simply not true.
On the 13th June 2016, the Shepway Green Party via their website published an article making it clear they were opposed to the development.
On the 15th November 2016 at 7.00pm at Lympne Castle, Kent County Councillor Cllr Martin Whybrow (Green Party) backed and supported the No Otterpool New Town campaign. He made that statement in front of many Lympne Residents, who were present.
In the audience was future Green Cllr, Lesley Whybrow (pictured left), who too supported the No Otterpool New Town campaign.
Then on Dec 3rd 2016 there was a demonstrations outside the council office which went into Folkestone Town Centre. That’s where Jim Martin, now Cllr Jim Martin (Green Party) used the information from our website that Cllr Monk was a former double glazing salesman.
Then in Feb 2018 KCC Green Cllr Martin Whybrow, endorsed and signed a letter-to-Theresa May then Prime Minister, which outlined the deep concerns many had about Otterpool and called for a local referendum on the matter.
The Shepway Green Party can say what they like about Otterpool, but they were and have been opposed to it being built. They can air brush history by destroying evidence and videos. They can place fake news on their website, but for all intents and purposes, they are just like any other political party… they flatter to deceive to get elected.

As a Lympne Resident I clearly recall the Greens opposition to Otterpool when they were campaigning. Now they are in power, they have acquiesced and taken Monk’s shilling.
I believe only Labour are holding true to their opposition to Otterpool; and I’m certainly not a Labour voter, or supporter.
Shame on the Greens
I see in the rag run by Wimble; Mr Peter Day has said this off the Shepway Greens indirectly:
“Although mistakes can be rectified in due course, it does take a great deal of
time and money to rectify. And sadly this is true of Hythe High Street. It has been mooted, that the Controlling Group on the Local Council (Shepway Green Party) is to close the High Street in its entirety to motorised transport. This has been put on the Hythe Town Council agenda for discussion, and to suggest that the time closure is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Monday to Saturday. Is this another way of putting another nail in the “Hythe Street Coffin” and thereby closure by stealth”
I will not be voting for them again. Oh and who’s going to pay the £5K JR fees owed to the Council. It won’t be Cllr Lesley or Martin Whybrow I suspect.
The Shepway Green Party go into meetings behind closed doors, when they called for transparency prior to the May 2019 elections.
The Green Party Leader Cllr L Whybrow endorsed a JR over Princes Parade when she was on the Save Princes Parade committee. This cost the Council tens of thousands to defend.
They are backtracking on almost all the claims they made in their election promises.
And you’d think watching the Council video’s that Cllr Prater and Cllr L Whybrow were a love item the way they support each other.
When there is work to be done, one can hardly see Cllr Lesley Whybrow through the dust as she makes her escape.
