The Grauniad reports that John Kampfner (Who he? - Ed) will be heading up the trust that's overseeing Margate's putative Anthea Turner Centre. Kampfner is a former editor of the News Statesman (Righto - Ed.). Kent County Council were apparently impressed with his 'drive and enthusiasm'.
Well he'd better put his foot down if you ask me. The story states that the Ike and Tina Turner Centre is 'scheduled to finish construction in 2010'. The last time I looked, not a sod had been dug. And there's still a questionmark hanging over some of the funding, from what I hear. If it's finished by 2010, I'll eat my monocle!
