A Pound For Your Thoughts

It's not often I grace the teeny-tiny streets of Boredstares with my presence, dear reader, and then it's usually under the cover of darkness. After all, I wouldn't want to be mobbed by the paps!

So forgive the gloominess of the above sepiatone, but it's there to illustrate that the Range Rover-loving Boredstarians now have their very own [trumpet fanfare] - pound shop! I must say it's furnished me with a delightful feeling of schadenfreude to know that the Dickensoned Dickensians can now step out of their tanning shops and binge on 3kg of sticky crap for a oncer, or cop a handy four gross of clothes pegs for a sov. When Iceland opens up in the former Woollies this autumn, it'll complete the town's transformation from picturesque, Devon style quaintness to all-out Isle of Sheppey chaverama!

But wait! Perchance I spoke too soon! This is 'PoundPlus'! And a quick call to my spies on the east side has confirmed that everything in the shop costs a pound or more! Kuh, typical! I suspect it won't be long before the canny traders of Cliftonville latch onto the scam and start opening PennyPlus stores!

Surely Richard you would know that the Folk of Broadstairs and St Peters would not accept anything less than ' Pound Plus' !

Dunno - some of them accepted a two-bob councillor.

The good people of Cliftonville dont need Broadstairs Pound Plus they already have ample shops and no problems with cars mounting the pavement trying to run down predestrians.

Just out of interest Don, you call your blog 'Promote Thanet' but at the moment you're promoting Jersey. Any reason for that apart from hypocrisy?

You can take a joke.


Move up one place.

Let me ask, did you buy it here on the (Fair)Isle or at the Manston Duty Free?

Or did your friends buy it at the hotel or Fedex it to you from Jersey this morning? Perhaps it's from the restaurant-owners designer collection?

Another one who can't spell.

What is this? The Thanet Brains Trust annual outing?


I'd suggest that anyone who is happy to see African Cargo planes flying over my garden every 10 minutes is actually a pretty spiteful bastard.

Do respond.

In English this time. Punctuate correctly and add an 'a' to Fnarr.

Praps there was none to be spotted!

As for your intemperate language, I can only assume that you dwell in the Dickensian hell that is Cliftonville / Margate?

I understand that Alphabetti (sic)Spaghetti is indeed used a sex-aid in some parts of the Isle. Surely an 'X' or a 'W' would fulfil your sexual fantasies more fully?

Rhetorical OK, ffs don't respond.

Whoops...

A closer re-read has changed the meaning of Anon 1.26pm's last comment.

Doh!
