Beach To Be Beached?

Just back from my triumph at the Baftas having handled Harry's Bentley with style and aplomb, only once scraping it on a pesky bollard round the back of Leicester Square. I don't think he'll notice, he's as blind as a bat, and besides he'll be too euphoric to whinge after scooping a couple of gongs. Good to see Brucie getting a fellowship too, although I did catch a glimpse of 'Mr Entertainment' and I fear he ain't going to make the transition to HD TV without a lot more, er, work. The poor old fella's got more lines than a Tube map.

Speaking of 'dos', I'm told by the Standards Board for England, which oversees ethics at local councils, that its deliberations in Fannit's famous 'f*cking tosser' complaint have now concluded, and that the adjudication will be published 'within the next two weeks'. Regular readers will remember our glorious Tory leader, Sandy Beach, was alleged to have called the Mayor of Margate a 'f*cking tosser' at a black tie do in April last year, and apparently said to another Labour councillor who attempted to intervene: 'Come on, just put your face in mine.'

Word on the Ile's grubby streets is that Mr Beach may not come out of it too well, and could be forced to step down. Leaving the way open for, er... Well, maybe you'd like to make your own suggestions from the list of Dad's Army duffers who currently run the place. Or perhaps they'll go for 'new blood'? Step forward Councillor McSniggles?
Sandy: 'F*cking tosser!'

My vote goes to local entrepreneur and part time monopoly pro Jim Goodun. He has the right contacts.

I would prefer Labour to be in but if we have to have Tories then my vote would go to Simon Moores who at least is not one of the old guard with all that implies in Thanet, He has on occasion been shown to have his own mind at least although he seesm to have swallowed a lot of party guff and rubbish from the unelected twits who run Thanet since he was elected.

3.31pm Good idea then the mayor could justifiably call him a f*cking tosser.

I certainly won't be sorry to see the arrogant tosser go. At least Latchford is polite & courteous to us TDC staff struggling along on minimum wage.

Latchford "polite and courteous"?!

Are you from a parallel dimension?

To be fair, Mr Ezekiel seems highly representative of the man in the street.

Y'know, that man in the street who shouts at passing cars, smells of eggs and lives in a skip.

4:21, I only ever get to meet Latchford in evenings when he's drunk, & he's always chatty & friendly. Maybe he's different when he's sober...

How about that chap with the beard and twelve kids Chris Wells?

4.47, you should have been at the Save Westgate Pavilion meeting t'other week.

Old Roger the Dodger must have been at a barrell of The Fannit Brewery's Old Offensive...

My counterfeit money's on Cyril Hoser making a comeback.

Jethro, I see no wrong in shouting at passing cars, smelling of eggs and living in a skip. There used to be a woman in Broadstairs who used to wear a tea cosy on her head and shout at passing cars, its a genetic trait in these 'ere parts. There was also that dude who used to stand on Ramsgate seafront wearing a pair of ladies bloomers and playing a plastic trumpet. Was he on the council?

.....Mr Ezekiel seems highly representative of the man in the street.
You mean he's common???

Perhaps this was why he had his meeting with the esteemed bunch of 'businessmen' mentioned on Bertie Biggles site!

Did anyone happen to see what colour smoke was emerging from the pub chimney afterwards? Blue with a hint of grey, perhaps?

So who will give me odds that Sandy will walk away without any further action and that the laughable Standards Board will find that no further action is necassery. I bet that the Freemasons phone lines and the Tory Old Boys network have been overload trying to find a way to keep him 'clean'.

He's the acceptable face of Thanet Toryism. Laughable but true. They'll do anything to keep him fronting them up.

Michael Child said...

The thing I find most appalling here is when I got the EA report on Pleasurama I emailed the leader and another prominent member of the cabinet in the hope we could resolve the issue without damaging Thanet publicity, they didn’t even deign to reply to me.

The man on the street know what's wrong with Margate, Tdc certainly is not in touch, ie they do not want a Turnip centre, they want dreamland to be an entertainment centre which would attract more people to Margate than any Turner centre could ever hope to achieve. Helping existing businesses/shops rather let them shut down and fill them with a grant funded enterprises, REDUCE excessive parking charges, yet reward it's own workers with free parking, the new drop in/libary in Margate is a complete failure....it's time to start listening to the man on the street where more common sense prevails.

the good thing about jewish men is that they have circumcised penises so you know you can go down on them without getting a mouth full of cheese. which is preferable imo
