Today's Sadscene leads with the news that the traditional London cabbies' charity fun run to Margate has been cancelled due to the fact that there is, in reality, no more fun to be had in the Arsonists' Playground. Unless it's with a can of petrol and a box of Bryant and Mays, that is.
The run's been going since 1973, bringing mentally handicapped children and their carers to the town for a spot of welcome levity by the seaside. But no more, as the organising committee claims there is 'not enough to do' in the town. Committee chair Michael Range told the paper: 'It's down to inadequate facilities.' Other runs to Herne Bay and Hastings will continue, with Mr Range adding: 'We don't get the help from Margate. It's always been a battle. Margate has, for a while, been a thorn in our side. It's been a great venue for 30 years but not anymore.'
Blue Rinse shagpiler Sandy Beach is quoted as saying he could not understand the decision, and that he thought it was 'just politics being played out'. Personally I think Sandy should get his head out of the, er, sand, or his arse, or wherever he keeps it and take a good look around him!
