I'm catching up with all the gossip here on the Ile de Thanet after returning from my brief sojourn at Nookie's Nest in Folkestone.
There currently appears to be a squalid tussle taking place on the shabby north side of the Ile, where the local MP Sir Roger Wind has been in the papers over something his secretary has done.
Personally I don't understand the ins and outs, and would rather steer clear of such tittle-tattle, but James Bond is promising to publish the true story tomorrow, and the editor of the Gazunder will apparently be going head to head with Sir Rodge on BBC Radio Kent.
Everyone in The Arsonists' Playground is waiting with bated, and no doubt rather rancid, breath.
Here in the calmer climes of the mediterranean style south side, we tend not to go in for such grubby stuff. The biggest news round here is that our local brewmeister Eddie Gadd is setting up in larger premises on the outskirts of town.
The affable Eddie, known to his friends as The Gaddfather Of Ale, currently brews his beer at the Belgian Bar on the harbour. I have to admit to slumming it there occasionally, and even enjoying the odd drop of Gadd's No. 5, although Krug is really more my tipple.
Anyway, good luck to Eddie, who's well on his way to becoming a brewing magnate, and thereby adding another millionaire to Ramsgate's ever-growing list!
