A picture posted on Facebook by the Green party about their recent election victory has "angered certain people."
The post in question is a doctored photo of a ten-pin bowling game in full swing with newly elected Swale councillor Tim Valentine striding down one of the lanes and using the head of defeated Tory Andrew Bowles as the bowling ball.
The artistic impression now seems to have been hurriedly deleted but not before another wag commented: "If only I could animate that photo into a video clip it would go viral in Swale!"
Another added the celebratory cry of "Strike!"
Our colleagues on KentOnline received an anonymous complaint saying the cartoon was not funny and had made "certain people" very angry.
It was Valentine, a retired professor of psychology who lives in Selling, and his colleague Alastair Gould, a Faversham GP, who put Swale council in a spin by knocking out its leader Andrew Bowles from his hitherto safe seat at Boughton and Courtenay.
Valentine polled 825 votes and the good doctor received 915 compared with Bowles' 621.
Mr Bowles had held the seat since 1987.
