Eastcliff Richborough

I notice that ├╝bercodger Angina, and my old mucker Ram Skate, have been banging on about the Pleasurama development today.

Quite by chance, it ties in with a little offer that's come my way via one of my City chums.

With 4,513 luxury apartments being built on the charred remains of the former funfair, there's going to be quite a draw on the National Grid. Now that Tone has waved the, er, green flag at all those nuclear Johnnies, I've been offered the chance to jump on the investment bandwagon. The plan is to re-open Richborough as a nuclear power station, and cash in!

It should be a little uranium mine, unless those garlic munchers at EDF get the contract to run it and coq it all up. Still, if they do, look on the bright side. The benefits of glowing in the dark will more than compensate for their inability to install a decent public lighting system round here!

Seems only fair that EDF get the contract. If you look at the huge chain of nuclear power stations that are dotted along the North Coast of France (that'll be the bit closest to us, of course), then it's safe to assume that they're already au fait with this technology.
I'm sure there will be plenty of work for the locals, though, when they dig Richborough up and move it to Northumberland, the bunch of stea.... actually, i'll stop there.

Steam puddin's. I'm sure that's what you were about to say.

Small point. EDF( Formaly SEEboard) only supply the the electricity, and of course connect the supply to the posts.
The majority of Street Lights are owned and maintained by KCC. The rest are Urainian owned.

Thanks for pointing that out Snaily. I was thinking more of the delays introduced by EDF in getting the new heritage lighting installed here on the East Cliff, earlier in the year. The KCC light(n)ing squad generally seem to be quite responsive.

While we're on the subject of lighting, some of the Dickensians have been writing to the local rags complaining that their fancy new seafront illuminations have made their quaint little town look like Blackpool. I suppose now that they make their own decisions about lights, they only have themselves to blame!
