How very dare you. Are you suggesting that members of the Flying Doctor Service take deliveries up the back passage?

Turning to "our" local Biggles - and indeed the first of the so-nicknamed - see his ground crew (Flight Sergeant Labour turned Tory Gregory) has joined the threats game. His latest post reads:

"Several actionable comments have been intercepted by the Google people, two of which I have asked them to identify the sender."

Fixated or what? If he ever commented on the sh*t in his own political backyard rather than making sick remarks about lightening strikes on Labour Councillors houses, someone may take him seriously.

You seem to have missed:

Biggles hits the Trail 1935

Eastcliff Richard said...

If Our Ken had moderation on and they weren't published, then how could the comments be 'actionable'? Well, they wouldn't be actionable for libel at least. If Ken had published them they might be, but then he'd have to sue himself as publisher!

Of course, they could still be actionable even if they weren't published if they were threatening, abusive, etc.

As for Biggles Hits the Trail Michael, I got that list off Wikipedia so maybe you'd like to pop over there and add it? Just goes to show how reliable Wikipedia is (has anyone looked at the Ramsgate page lately? It still has the Mayor as Kay Dark, an annual Powerboat Grand Prix and carnival, and the Gazunder owned by Trinity Mirror! And most of the guff in our newspapers is copied straight off it!)

Biggles was drafted in as a casualty replacement.

Now the Old Man (the CO) is anxious to keep the Hun chatting about how they can shoot at Biggles and not about how they would have shot at the casualty ?

Does anyone ever pay attention to Village Voice? It's at best, a couple of lines that don't really say a great deal.

Not a patch on the other Thanet blogs.

Anon 6.12, your are right on. Thanet blogs seek out the truth and inform. I have just spent a few days in Ramsgate and failed to find the Euroferries booking office. So where is it?
