The Writing's On The Wall


Lord luvva-bleeding-duck!!!!! I go away for a mere year or two, and return to find that our beautiful Great Wall of Ramsgate has been whitewashed by some numpty with a roller and a pot of Wilko's finest! Priceless works of art ruined in less time than it takes to jackhammer a Banksy off the side of Poundland. Grrrrr! And harrumph!

Of course, this being the Ile de Thanet, the most important thing now is to find a politician to blame. My personal preference would be to crucify the duffers who allowed a bunch of faux developers get their grubby mitts on the Pleasurama site in the first place. Once they've been dealt with, we can move on to tarring and feathering the twit with the paint pot, finally reserving the full Edward II treatment for the feeble-minded who think that selling the freehold for the site to SFP is going to lead to any result other than rows of concrete sticks eyesoring our lovely seafront until we're all long dead and buried. Kuh!

So, ECR, you say you have returned? I hope this is not another fleeting visit, though I am concerened that with your rather untriumphant return, we suddenly have vandalism to the Great Wall of Ramsgate...Any relation between the two ECR? A few too many halves down the Belgian Bar perhaps?

Joking aside, good to have you back old chum!

If you are back you better sort out your out of date side bars and dont get upsetting Tony, he's only just come back after a 4 month break.
Sort out your Richard's Thanisaurus before he sues you.

Peter Checksfield said...

And sort out Moores while you're at it, he deserves another blog war!

Help yourself to any pictures you want Richard and feel free to photoshop them, hope you are back for a bit at least we could do with a different angle on some of the Ramsgate stories.

Richard Eastcliff said...

Richard Eastcliff said...

You can do better than sweeping. On the Manston web site they are looking for an assistant to the Air Traffic Controller. Just imagine it, you direting all the jumbos over Herne Bay or even to land at Lydd.
