Ramsgate 1, Margate 0

The latest edition of the Lonely Planet Guide to the UK describes Ramsgate as 'picturesque', according to a report in the Kent on Sunday newspaper.

Margate also gets a guernsey, but is rapped for exhibiting 'the melancholy air of a town past its prime'. Meanwhile Boredstares 'plays the Victorian nostalgia card' to attract the tourists. No surprises there, then.

Don't believe every thing in the newspapers this looks like propaganda designed to stop Ramgitonians such as yourself lowering the tone of Margate.

The Lonely Planet Guide to Bulgaria was surprisingly accurate so they do try hard to give a true representation of what they find. Maybe we should write our own guide to Planet Thanet.
