Great Wall Comes Tumbling Down

Or, to purloin another musical metaphor, Hey Jude!

Well, only one tile went missing from the roof here at the old cliff top mansion during the Great Storm Of 2013, which I regard as a bit of a result. But a tour of the Millionaires' Playground in the Toyota Priapus this morning revealed that GO'D's own Great Wall failed to make it though the night, leaving the Pleasurama Eyesore looking more like The Great Hairy Mound Of Ramsgate.
A team of crack Cardy-ologists are already on the scene, making good with the wood, so hopefully the winner of the All-Comers Badly Painted Krankies Lookalikes Competition 2011 will be back in its rightful upright position soon!
I suspect a few other nosey bloggers have taken the opportunity to wander around the open site, checking the foundations of cliff walls etc, you'll probably be hearing from them shortly.

Meanwhile, around town, there seemed to be little damage apart from the odd fallen branch. Oh, and the beach appears to be in the process of reclaiming our lovely, but deserted, port!

Well we can't blame this one on Driver, not unless he has taken up praying, which he probably would if there was a photo shoot opportunity in it.

"There's a hole in the Great Wall of Ramsgate. TDC are looking into it!"

Must we have Gerry's ugly mug back there? And why hasn't the site been cleared already and the hoarding taken down?

Pleasurama will not happen and the site needs clearing before January snows and another Summer lost.

Not much left to be damaged in Ramsgate.

Indeed. Now that Greggs has gone, it's the end.

Greggs is definitely of more concern than Manston. Soon The Bankrupt Shop will be bankrupt and The Pound Shop devalued. The Duffers will sort it all out.

Lots of room on the Chemo Bus Tour though!

"Chernobyl. Ramsgate of the Urals"

Is allegedly how they advertise.

What does Sister Assumpta have to say?

"De ferking wall is like me with the mother superior. It didn't go down without a fight."

Has Greggs gone as a consequence of the Morrisons opening Who will be next?

When approaching the Great Wall from the Belgian Bar, I always look forward to seeing the horse's arse. Are you telling me it's gone?
