Skateboarding News - An Apology

Would you Adam and believe it. You take a day off, and this is what happens.

I thought I'd give one of the Gazunder journalists a crack at writing a post yesterday, while I was getting my act together for my annual holiday in Cannes.

"Make it light," I said. "Make them laugh, make them smile. They come here to be entertained. They don't want some dreary old pony about local issues. They can get that elsewhere".

And what do I get? 17 column inches on some skateboarding park! Which in turn has prompted our local, car-crushing councillor Dave Green to append a comment which would make one of Fidel Castro's four hour speeches seem a model of brevity.

Better cancel my holiday.

I was delighted to find such a serious strand posted when visiting from 'another place' for some entertainment. Your staff reporter is to be congratulated on doing a bit of spade work into TCDT. It would be nice if you could direct him to delve further into finances of TCDT by extracting info from Charity Commisioners and Companies House sites. I tried but my ICT skills are still basic. I can only speak for myself but my nose is sensing a bad smell which might be the sea-weed in Margate Harbour?

Well that damn staff reporter from the Gazunder spent three whole pounds of my own money downloading TCDT's files from Companies House - that's his bonus up the Swanee!

If you'd like to email me at eastcliffrichard@yahoo.co.uk I'll send you the pdf files, they're no use to me!

If you're shy, you can always set up a yahoo mail account in some fictitious name.

Thanks! I will need to find some-one to interpret them. Will get in contact. What is a yahoo mail account and why should people want to have a fictitious name?

Some people say I'm hiding something, because of the beard.

No mate, you're hiding something in your beard.

Saw that skateboard lot out on a protest march last night.
Firstly in Bellevue Road, bouncing footballs of off car roofs and spitting at passers-by whilst constructing rudimentary sentences out of the words f*ck, c*nt and in*it. Must've been about 30 of them.
They'd thinned out to 15 or so when I saw them again, a few hours later, on the seafront near Catweazel's Bar Beirut.
Toyed with the idea of coaxing them into the place and getting them to kick-off but, sod it, he can tidy the place up himself!
