Our lovely port and harbour here in the Millionaires' Playground is apparently being dredged this week, after five months of zip. Not before time. My spies with the blue blazers and brass buttons report that TransEuropa's Larkspur ran aground whilst in the turning circle within the port breakwaters on Thursday morning, only to wriggle free an hour and a half after her advertised departure time.
Why don't Thanet Council just admit they're planning to save a whole loada dough by turning the place into a beach? Which they will then eventually transform into yet another car park, with the aid of an EU grant, thus providing a revenue stream with absolutely no outgoings whatsoever!
