Bignews Margate

I really am beginning to get rather hacked off with all the snide comments being lobbed at me from the seedy north side of the island.

Just what are these 'defamatory' remarks Chippy Tone is accusing me of? And in whose opinion are they 'defamatory'? Has Tony gone and hired himself a top libel lawyer or something? Or is he just bandying the D-word about in much the same way our doctor/councillor does whenever he reads something about himself he doesn't like? And as for me being a nobody, isn't that just stating the bleedin' obvious? Or does he really think the thousands of people who read this blog each month imagine I actually am some kind of millionaire sleb with a media empire to rival Murdoch? If so, he must be nuttier than I thought!

I really didn't want to return to this topic, but poor old Tony is still blogging on like a man obsessed, so some response to his paranoid vendetta is appropriate I feel. At the end of the day two Thanet bloggers, one an anonymous nobody and the other a named nobody, banging on about who is more of a nobody than whom, is probably about as interesting as what I had for breakfast. Which was a formule petit dejeuner at a Maccy D's just outside St Malo, if you must know!

Update: For all those who've commented about other commentators' grammar on this post, I can thoroughly recommend one of our local centres of learning excellence:

I once had this problem with another Norff Fanniter.

I inquired just how much it would cost to fight an action for (a)Libel and (b) Slander or defamation - the answer I received from my learned friend was "unless the party had a good reason for an actionable case they would be wasting their money" he inferred they would risk everything and very probably bankrupt themselves in the process. Having trawled around the old Netty I cannot find any 'no win no fee' for the above I wonder why?

Well done young man, I'm glad to see you and Big Tony kiss and make up. Isn't life wonderful?

Now if I can just get that young SMEG chap to see 'eye to eye', so to speak, with that man Peter Chicklesfield we'll all be friends again....

Peter Checksfield said...

I'd gladly sit down over a nice cuppa with Stevie Boy, but I suspect he'd want something a little stronger.

Incidentally I've deleted my links to almost all Thanet bloggers...instead I've linked to the excellent site below as that way I can view all recent posts & comments at a glance:

When Jeffery Archer was up to similar
self publicising tricks as Fat Tone, A journalist said ,"we will not provide him with the oxygen of publicity" . To which another journo quipped ," lets just not provide him with oxygen"

Eastcliff Richard said...

Er, what offensive comments?

This is becoming sooooooooooooo boring, sums up the thanet blog scene at the mo!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Well quite. Tell that to Fat Tony.

>>but I suspect he'd want something a little stronger<<

I think we all would. But in the meantime, you'll have to do, eh?

I've been away for a while, so I don't really know what's afoot. All I want is humorous quips & local news/gossip!

Mr. Whyspoilanicecup of tea said...

Ignore those who name and shame themselves. Don't let the down grinders bastardize you.

In my own experience of things here, those who are most prone to blithering on about having been personally wronged are also frequently rude and arrogantly dismissive, both of individuals and, indeed, entire swathes of the local population.

They also appear to be void of all wit, and incapable of any self depracation.

It's also informative that someone who demands that you remove all links to his blog should still feel the need to post comments here. The 10watt glare of publicity keeps on attracting those thin gossamer wings... oh well.

Lucy Mail said...

Informative? I thought we all realised that if he stayed on his own blog, he wouldn't have anyone to talk at. I think even he realises that, though I wouldn't put money on it.

I find piss-poor grammar to be offensive, 7:58PM. Does that mean you'll be removing your comment and shutting down your blog?

Mr Whyspoilanicecupetc. said...

I'm pretty sure he realises a lot of things, but then instantly unrealises them, utilising the special gifts of an Iguano brain. Sadly, for me, I have previously been forced into earshot of said Special Gifts person. I don't recall any particular advantage being gained by him from knowing that I was cutting him down face to face either.

Lucy Mail said...

I've met him too. Credit to him that he takes his job very seriously.
But then, when you consider what he does, my last statement could be seen as an insult!

Anonymous said...

As Lucy insists on being a grammar pedant, then I suggest she learns how to tell the time as the post she objected to was 7.31 not 7.58.
Really boring being this picky, oh well people in glass piggeries .

Mr Whyspoilanicetc said...

I feel humbled by your generosity of spirit. One should always respect a man who takes his job, or perhaps we may even refer to it as a 'particular calling', so seriously. Such dedicated craftsmen deserve to be lionized, following the lead set by our proud Roman forbears.

You didn't interrupt your junket to Jersey to post this thread surely?
No wonder it drags on and on to the utter boredom of the rest of us. Just ignore him and resume entertaining us please with a cherry on top.

Quote of the week -

"My world is too large for small minds like yours" - Councillor Doctor Simon Moores, Thanet Life.

Well your f*cking head is certainly!

Forget ECR versus Tony or Lucy versus Peter's Cock & take a look at The Thanet Star!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Cripes! Talk about blog eat blog! Lord Matt is threatening to sue Dr/Cllr Moores!

Lucy Mail said...

Well then 9:51 AM (today), sorry to be pedantic about your pedantry but, if you notice, I left a gap between my reply to Mr Whyspoilanicecupoftea's comment and my reply to 7:58 PM's (yesterday) comment, which can, in some instances, signify two separate responses.
While I apologise unreservedly for the poor chronological ordering of my comment, I still think that you should try scrolling back and feeling like a complete twat, all the same!

Dear-oh-dear, do pay attention!

PS That last, separated bit was for you too! And this bit, for that matter!
