Just a quick reminder that Boredstares will be the venue for a public meeting this evening to discuss the China Gateway project. Organised by local campaigner Chiristine Tongue, it kicks off at the Red Hall at 7.30pm and all are welcome.
And as if by magic, Ms Tongue's film Thanet Under Threat has appeared on BoobTube to coincide with the gathering. I've added it to this post, but to be honest I haven't watched more than a minute as the thought of enduring over an hour of Ms Tongue's dreary voiceover had me reaching for the phone to dial the Samaritans. That and her opening gambit: 'Thanet is in East Kent and has three historic seaside resorts, the most popular of which is Broadstairs'. Kuh!
Still, there is a very amusing, Noggin the Nog style opening animation which condenses the last thousand years of island history into a few seconds. I wonder if Our Greatest Living Thanetian, Oliver Postgate, had a hand in that? If anyone sticks with it as far as the end credits, perhaps they'd be kind enough to let us know!
