Angina Hits The G-Spot

Ooh I say! It all seems to have gone a bit saucy down at our luxury Granville Theatre and Cinem, here on Ramsgate's trendy East Cliff! Not only have they erected new signage which consists of a very large G with three spots underneath, but on 14 and 15 November they're putting on The Angina Monologues, 'a humorous, spirited and poignant look at the lives of 10 very different women featuring subjects as diverse as Cockney weddings, trips to Benidorm and Stolen art'.

Presumably inspired by the celebrated off-Broadway hit The Vagina Monologues, or even Thanet's very own Angina Monologues, or perhaps comedian Sol Bernstein's, er, Angina Monologues or maybe Canadian corporate therapist and former heart attack patient Lou Eisen's, um, Angina Monologues oh gawd I think I've lost the plot.

Meanwhile I hear a couple of bright sparks over in Margate are planning to strike a blow for masculinism with a plan to stage their new play The Denis Dialogues. And apparently they've found the perfect venue for it...

I do hope your accountant, Cyril, had nothing to do with this latest, ink related, international fiasco:


IRANIAN CABINET MEMBER "QUALIES COURTESY OF CYRIL"

Parliament in Iran has voted to sack Interior Minister Ali Kordan after he admitted a degree he said he obtained from Oxford University was a forgery.

Mr Kordan said he received the doctorate from Oxford University in good faith, but his certificate was revealed to be a crude fake.

Both conservatives and moderates MPs called for his dismissal.

Correspondents say President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may now have to submit his whole cabinet for a vote of confidence.


At the Cliftonville synagogue a spokesman for Cyril said that rumours he was being made an hero of Israel are greatly exaggerated.

The Lido used to have a very good theatre to seat 1,500 people years ago until it was demolished. A notable part of its structure was the sliding roof which would be opened on summers' evenings at the interval and at the end of a show to let out smoke and bring in fresh air. Now, I'm showing my age!

you lot can scoff at Rick but those of us with looong memories well remember the antics of former Comrade Hoser.
At the time he was the Chairman of TDC's Finance Commitee, he was accused of and subsequently found guilty of printing money ( US Dollars ) cheques, cheque cards, GCE certificates, driving licenses and other naughty things,,,he was only found out because he had given his daughters some money to take to the USA on holiday with and they were arrested for passing fake dollar bills, the Yanks dont take kindly to that sort of thing!
I refered to him as former Comrade Hoser because like a lot of Thanet Politicians he has flirted with several factions before settling for the local Tories presumably because they are a soft touch and dont ask to many awkward questions, he was at one time a member of the British Communist Party.
I can still remember the newspaper headline at the time...
Chairman of Finance prints his own money.

LOL I think he's gone to the Great Treasury in the Sky now but his son is still around Thanet apparently.

Cllr Hoser's court case was 26 years ago and I still have the cuttings somewhere. It was a sensational story at the time and I can't help thinking some of the current councillors are of the same mould - and could perhaps themselves end with a day in court and a stretch inside as well eventually.

Hoser kept his printing press in a basement in Hawley Square, Margate - handy for the council offices I suppose. I think a firearms charge may also have been involved surrounding the discovery of a sten gun or machine pistol at said basement - I could be wrong though.

Interestingly, he was behind the launch of the Thanet Council lottery which, in 1981, was the first of its kind in the country. It is not know if he produced his own winning tickets or not!
