Towing The Party Line?

Holy joysticks! Footling around on eBay just now, I came across this offer from our favourite Blue Rinser. Yes, the flying doctor/Tory councillor is giving us the once-in-a-lifetime chance to see a banner of our choice tugged around behind his teeny-tiny plane on Christmas Eve!

Bids start at £150, and proceeds go to chariddee. You also get the opportunity to go in the Doctor's cockpit, as long as you weigh less than 185kg (that rules out Santa and most Margatonians then).

With only three days of the auction left, the Doc has yet to be made an offer, but I'm sorely tempted. Seeing him tug TORIES OUT OF THANET or EASTCLIFF RICHARD IS THE BIZ around the Ile would be the Christmas present to end all Christmas presents. Although I'd be a bit ginger about joining him on the flight. You never know, he might develop finger trouble with the ejector button!

If your struggling to find a Xmas pressie for a certain friend of yours, what about gifting:

How about 'Thanet welcomes everyone irrespective of race, colour, creed or sexual orientation'? That should get him going.

I'm all for the odd conspiracy theory, but I'm not putting up with any more of that Irritating Bloke's bollocks. I've just had to remove five more of his feeble mutterings.

If he wants to say I'm in a conspiracy with Dr Biggles (who has also banned him) to deny him access to the world of Thanet blogging, he can go tell it to Tony Flaig because I've turned comments off for the foreseeable future.

Please note that this has nothing to do with the fact that in the 70s and 80s I was a member of the SAS, the IRA, the UVF, Special Branch, MI5 and MI6. I thank you.

Don't be fooled by 'Biggles' latest publicity stunt. The real winner here will be his banner flying company & his inflated ego.

He will most probably get his media cronies to cover the event in as many papers & on as many tv channels as possible.

Thinks....'Infratil..Oasis..Airads =
Charity stunt'
