Ramsgate First First

Hurrah! The first piece of local election literature plopped through my letterbox this morning, and it's from those Ramsgate First people who want their own teeny-tiny council here in Kent's answer to Monte Carlo.

Couldn't see much in the way of policies, though, apart from repeated and, to be frank, rather repetitive reassurances (eat your heart out Wossie!) that they want to put Ramsgate, er, first.

Still, they're hoping for a swathe of teeny-tiny councillors, and promise 'we do as you say', so I might pop round to their HQ at 45 King Street later on and suggest they wear their Reg Grundies on their head and go 'wibble'. That should liven the local political scene up a bit!

45 King Street? That would be the site of the old Rubble Tons Cafe, wouldn't it? Are you sure it didn't say 4&5, the UKIP HQ?
I think that'd be more like it!

I haven't got their leaflet to hand at the moment, but I admit I was similarly confused as the only party political offices I'm aware of on King Street are UKIP. Which was one of the reasons I was going to trot down and take a look. Apart from the obvious attraction of a quick game of Simon Says, of course.

I think 45 is Ralph Holts Photographer Shop, but I think some of the personnel frequent both?

Mr Holt of 'Magnificent 7' fame? You know, the chaps who are trying to raise funds to revitalise the Granville Theatre-Cine-Khazi-ma?

Articulate readers of this site may make sarcastic comments about Ramsgate First but they did force the council to hold a referendum and they won their fight for a town council! Hopefully the people of Ramsgate who supported their campaign will also support them on May 3rd. TDC could do with a bit of a shake-up.
