RamSoc Ruckus

video

Bleurgh! Eeurgh! Phthaaaa!!!! No, er, no... that's... just.... look, I'm not sure I can even bring myself to peep at this blog from behind the old Ron Arad sofa after that last item. Let alone write anything. I don't think I'll be letting Ted do another Pet Care Corner any time soon.

Any-old-how, I've just been catching up with all your luvverly emails, and this one immediately grabbed my attention:

Attached is a short video from the Ramsgate Society meeting on Friday. Some peeps just got up and started having a go about something, but I couldn’t quite follow all of it. Something to do with the Ramsgate Society and planning matters. I only got the tail end, after I’d fished my phone out my bag, but stick it up on the blog if you like.

From what I've heard this bit of argy-bargy, concerning a planning application in Liverpool Lawn, was about as animated as this particular meeting got. No wonder people were feeling uppity, after being subjected to several hours' discussion about the size, colour and quantity of bollards in the Millionaires' Playground!

Still, you have to applaud Walph 'Mr Wamsgate' Hoult's Kissinger-like diplomatic effort at calming the situation down. And if you're quick, you might spot a Doctor Who character. Definitely not one that you'd have to hide behind the sofa for, though!

Whether right or wrong...these guys (McCarthy's men) are just about the only poor buggers trying to stop Ramsgate from getting royaly stitched up by Fannit council. Good luck.
PS. Great ruckus though.

TDC stitched Ramsgate up over the Victorian bus shelter at the bottom of Royal Parade. The TDC directors don't live in Thanet and don't care about Thanet. As long as they can work from home and have the odd goody (i mean working) trip to china, they will continue to rip us off.

Eastcliff, slightly off subject, but your insistence on calling Manston Chas 'n' Dave Airport. Surely, with Infratils total disregard for its neighbours (night flights) or anything local (thanet earth v imported fruit), surely they will name it Dame Kiri Te Kanawa Airport?

How about 'Dame Kiwi Fruit Te Kanawa International Airport'. Has a certain ring ne c'est pas?

Manston Mangoes International?
Banana Republic Airport?
Lemon International?

Anon 2.32 I think there is already a John Lemon airport in Liverpool. Name it after Margate's most famous artists either Tracy Island airport or Turnip airport.

Football clubs have stolen the march on selling naming rights for stadia. Why not airports, something to reflect the locals/local area?

Special Brew International?
Superkings Airport?
Viagra International?

Nah, let's just call it 'Manilla Airport'. Might be a bit confusing geographically, but it certainly reflects the local, brown envelope economy.

I think it is either Ralph Hoult is a Cyberman or possibly that is Tegen storming off at the beginning
