Offcuts

Blimey! The local rumour mill is currently running rampant (eat your heart out Wossie!). In my capacity as 'The Master of Bullshit', here's the latest goss:

1. Our council's rugged leader is reported to be thinking of stepping down before the next local elections. Hopefully his cohort of duffers will go with him. Perhaps he's 'Wilton' under the strain? Or is he finally facing the 'Ax(minster)' (Geddit!!?!!?!??).

2. Unlucky Jim has bought himself another piece of prime Margate real estate. This time the shopping arcade is set for the 'regeneration' treatment (i.e long, slow decay into nothingness, followed by a mystery fire.) Needless to say, the arson attack on Dreamland's Scenic Railway earlier this year, which we all thought would be a piece of piss to solve, still remains a, er, Jimmy riddle.

thought there was only one Hart in the local labour party - Clive - who is the other one?

Oh dear and I was just hunting for the flags. Please don't say it was just a dream - don't want to continue with the current nightmare!

The other Hart is Dennis who was a councillor for one of the Ramsgate wards until 2007.

Lets start speculating on those in the wings waiting for Sandy to sail off on his yacht - Moores? Wells? any other contenders - Wise?
does it mean the deputy has to go to as they are in place courtesy of the leader! What a thought?

Clive Harts no good. Looks too much like a spiv double glazing salesman, and doesn't handle pressure well. Also murky background - does he really live off incapacity benefits due his bad back, or does his wife support him?

Labour should go for someone with a bit of substance and charisma, but can't see anyone in the current line up that fits the bill.

As for Moores/Wells/Wise - they strikesme as the good, the bad and the ugly - but which one is which!?

Any combination of the above would be preferable to the three Stooges. Stinky Pinky and Perky who are all bad and ugly

Anonymous 1.32p.m. What an imagination you have. I think you'll find it's Sandy who may be going. I heard something about the Standards Board.

If there isn't a change of leader the Tories won't be back in that's a dead cert! He's certainly not a vote winner for a tory run TDC

The trouble is that while the bloggers are just a handful of Labour misfits and malcontents, Sandy Beach has hundreds of friends and customers who are very loyal to him. Even the Labour ones.

I heard that he is up for a 3rd term and that they are going to double the council tax to pay for a statue in honour of him at the entrance to Ramsgate.

Apparently he has been practising his pose, where he will be facing east with his hand up to protect his eyes from the sun as he looks for all the low flying jets coming in to land at Manston, and with the other hand, sticking a finger up to the residents of Eastcliff.

The title of the statue is .... "SWIVEL".
