Anthea Turner Centre

There appears to be a lot of kerfuffle here on the Ile de Thanet about something called the Turner Centre.

The powers that be are going to spend £30m building this centre, for painting and such like, in the sea off Margate. This is apparently because a painter called Geoffrey Turner stayed at a B&B there once on his way to somewhere else. And also because some lady called Tracey (urg!) who comes from Margate and is famous for making beds says so.

Now excuse me, but really, Margate? Surely Ramsgate, the new millionaires' playground, would be more appropriate? Here we appreciate the finer things in life, and a new arts centre/cafe complex in the marina would be just the place to sit and sip my latte on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

And while we're at it, perhaps we could think of a better title for it? How about naming it after one of my hugely influential and highly creative showbiz pals? The Anthea Turner Centre (tracksuits not allowed) has a much classier ring to it.
