A Hair Do To Dye For

Finding a suitable tonseurist to tackle the old Eastcliff barnet has proven problematic since Jamie the Harbour Barber over in Margate's old town packed up his scissors and pulled down the shutters for good. Most of the Sweeney Todds in these parts wouldn't know a hair do from a hair don't.

But I'm pleased to report that an excellent new gentlemen's grooming salon has opened in Ramsgate High Street, just up from the NatWest. Run by a couple of enterprising Turkish lads who've relocated from Norf Lundun, New Image offers cut throat shaves, singeing, threading, pattern design work and all the, er, trimmings. Haircuts start at sick squid, with discounts for students, kids and OAPs. I took advantage of their hair colouring service. Well, knocking on 30 and working in the meedja one really has to say goodbye to the grey!

They're open all hours, including Sundays and Bank Holidays. Just the kind of hard working chaps we need around here. And who knows, if you click on the flyer above and print it out, they might chop a oncer off your bill too!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM YOURTHANET.

"The news that UKIP's HQ DON'T WANT THANET TO KNOW"


I was interested to read in last week's YourThanet that Gerry O'Donnell, who is registered with the Electoral Commission, as the leader of the Ramsgate First Party, described himself in his letter as " an Independent Candidate for the forthcoming General Election"

Does this mean that he will be leaving the Ramsgate First Party, and if so, will the party's registered Treasurer 'Leslie Trevor Shonk' be taking over as caretaker leader until the party has a leadership contest, or is Mr Shonk busy enough as it is, with his other job as UKIP's Parliamentry Candidate for Thanet South?

OR put ELECTORAL Commission Ramsgate First, in to GOOGLE.

What does this have to do with the barber?? Electoral Commission lists will be updated at the next election. Trevor Shonk is no longer Ramsgate First Treasurer. Both he and Mike Taylor had divided loyalties all along but at least Trevor stayed loyal to UKIP and didn't party hop like Mike who had to find a party who was actually willing to take him - the Tories must be desperate in Thanet. What Gerry decides to do in the next election is up to him surely, at least he is trying to do something.

A barber exclusively for men?
I don't have a drawer full of ruined bras, so that I'd have to put up with radical, male, extremist sexism like that!!!

Hairdos will roll!

Are you still rocking the green mohican, ECR?

The Electoral Commission register is not a list. It is a GOVERNMENT register of political parties, and needs to be changed everytime there is a change, not at a general election. A Party and its officers are registered all year round, not just for elections. It appears that MR SHONK is breaking the rules by belonging to two parties, and being a registered officer for one and a candidate for another.

BY LAW THE REGISTERED PARTY TREASURER IS THE LEGAL TREASURER. Just saying he is no longer the treasurer won't stand up in court. Changes have to be reported to the Electoral commission and signed by all registered party officers.

In the eyes of the law Shonk is both the leagally registered treasurer of Ramsgate First and has to send in reports. And he is also a UKIP candidate.

Trevor Shonk did not party hop he broke the rules by remaining an registered officer of Ramsgate First. That is worst in the eye of law

Not as such, 4:59pm. But I have opted for a tasteful 'Mugabe' down below!

Down below where, ECR? the mind bogles!

Well personally I think that if the credit crunch is hitting ECR's employment badly, maybe a change of image is required. I would suggest dying the old barnet bright red or blue, shaving the sides with funky designs and gelling the top. I'm sure you could then replace that Radio1 DJ on the lottery show at least. ;o)
