Latchford's Legacy

Well, it's the end of another news week, fellow millionaires!

And as the whole of Ramsgate waits on tenterhooks to learn the outcome of last night's Duffer cabinet meeting to decide the fate of our Royal Pavilion (will it be Wetherspoons?), it's got me thinking about the devastation that has been visited on our lovely seafront over the past decade or so. One name keeps springing to mind - Latchford!

For it was none other than Colonel Sir Roger Latchford OBE (pictured above in happier days with his former chum John Worrow) who, in his capacity as Regeneration Supremo and Chief Ezekiel Toady under the previous Tory administration, presided over most of the crap decisions that have blighted the Millionaires' Playground, and continue to do so.

Pleasurama, for example. Wasn't it The Colonel who was the chief flag waver for SFP and Tiny Terry's Royal Sands development? And look what a pile of steaming whatsit that turned out to be! I understand the Duffers' legal eagles are even now going through the paperwork with an electron microscope to try and discover why The OBE-ed One insisted there was no 'long stop' date built into the contract. I suspect, though, they won't find the Holy Grail of a get-out clause. The Pavilion's woes also stem back to his time in the driving seat, when his hands were clearly on the steering wheel that was up Ezekiel's backside.

(By the way, where is our Sandy? He must be out of chokey by now. Has anyone spotted him? I'm offering a crisp tenner to the first person who emails me a recent photo of the ex-con!)

Of course, Latchford is now head of the Kent contingent of the Purple (Foreign) People Eater Party. So he can now presumably lord it up in Maidstone, without having to get his hands mucky with all this Ramsgate mullarkey. In fact I'm told that he's ordered his Ramsgate contingent to desist from the previous protocol of regular chinwags with the local great and good. That's democracy folks!

Anyway, the Dom is on ice and I've got some of that nice duqqa dip waiting. Before I go, I'd urge you to sign this petition. No, silly! It's not the one to save the airport. It's the one to save that skatepark in Cliftonville that the Duffers dug up last week! Thus demonstrating that, no matter which side of the island or what colour banner is flying above Cecil Square, the Duffers will always be, er, duffers!

Moustache!

Any truth in the rumour I've started that Farage wants to stand in Thanet because he likes flying and thought he'd be able to park his plane at Manston? The closure of Manston is a ploy to stop Farage.

Maybe we could turn Manston into a massive church set up for thousands of gay marriages to happen at once.

That should please Rog.

Farage probably wants to stand in Thanet because of the high proportion of immigration-blaming pensioners that blight our sceptic isle. And that's just the councillors.

Now, ECR, don't start something with Latchford that will embarrass him publicly. He'll announce that he isn't standing for election again for personal and family reasons and then change his position completely when an enquiry (supposedly) clears him. Just like he did when he was accused of circulating a racist email some years ago. Mind, he is about 132 now and always looks half-asleep or half-cut in pictures.

As the Rabbi said, 'Thanks for all the tip-offs.'

Meanwhile it would appear that I've been blocked from the Broadstairs! Facebook group, the one where all the xenophobic airport hoo-ha about 'bloody immigrants' took place last week, for re-posting this item on their page. Apparently they don't like politics. Or anything to do with Ramsgate, it would seem.

It's just yet more proof of how insular and barren Boredstares is, if you ask me. Wouldn't want to upset the builders' wives, would we?!

Word is that Theresa May this week was exasperated and she shouted "Well who the hell is this Hamilton"

It appears to have been a report codename identity to conceal the real identity of a senior Kent detective.

In January 1985 Kenny Noye rottweillers found a ski masked combat suited man lurking in the garden. In what was described as a vicious fight Kenny stabbed the intruder in self defence. It turned out to be Dc Fordham of the Met Police.

Then arose a turf war as Kent carted off Kenny and Met could not get the murder their jurisdiction under their Brinks Mat inquiries.

Met with their noses outa joint have a look at what might be bent in Kent policing and they come up with lorry hijackings and the 1981 1 million pound Bluebell Hill cash van robbery.

And an outside force is called in to investigate one particular Kent senior CID officer who became referred to in confidential reports, Theresa was told, as "Hamilton".

I do recall that Northumbria Police were called in to investigate Margate's DI Ken Sainsbury (Cyril Hoser forgery case officer I seem to recall) but I have absolutely no reason to suspect a link. Perhaps there was another and quite separate inquiry into Kent Police by an outside force at that time ?

Of course the question for our Theresa is the extent the name David Norris was associated with police allegedly on take. And as you know just six days before the 1993 Stephen Lawrence killing, the trial started of the Margate based UDA hit team who killed David Norris (No relation of Clifford Norris)

One month after Stephen was killed the Norris murder trial collapsed. A success for defence barristers like Michael Mansfield QC who had become Doreen Lawrence's barrister?

Anyway Theresa getting her hair off. "So are there any other funny Thanet tories I should be aware of ?"

Sir Humphrey cleared his throat "There is Cyril's mate arrested for paramilitary activity 1987 ... and exempted from charges and inquiries re UDA paramilitary collusion. Which is rather the genre of the Margate based UDA hitmen in the David Norris murder"

"So Humphrey Thanet tories obviously expelled this man ?"

"In a manner of speaking they in fact promoted him to tory Assn Vice Chair"

"Oh cobblers ....."

"Yes minister"

40 years ago Broadstairs was a quaint, gentile seaside resort.

I know there isn't any shale gas under Thanet but I'd still allow fracking in Pierremont Park, just to p*ss the old codgers off.

8:19, pleased you remember the Broadstairs of 40 years ago. Perhaps you would be so kind as to tell those of us that don't, all about it.

By the way, ask the local plod where they are more likely to be spat or pissed on a Saturday night in Thanet and you will find it is still Ramsgate. Ramsgate has not been peaceful since the USAF Air Police left!

Oh dear Richard you have got the wrong man, It was Richard Nicholson when Labour were in control pre 2003 who signed the contract. Still let us not let facts get in the way of a good story

It was indeed Richard Nicholson who signed the original agreement. However, this was updated in 2007 by the Ezekiel administration. In other words, both parties have been involved in this cock-up No wonder they're closing ranks to try to hush up what went wrong.

And 1:42 and 4:11 the Manston agreement was also agreed by Hart after Ezekiel/Bayford were removed from power. Both Bayford and Hart still say they support the airport.

As does Gale and Sandys - the latter the only one of them to oppose night flights - which is the only viable route for Manston.

None of them mention the water supply or removed monitors of course.

TDC and KCC have failed us. A council of corrupt pensioners scurrying around to hide the removal of the Manston monitors by Infratil and TDC. Simply denying the pollution at Thor mercury and the economic collapse of Kent whether Dreamland or Medway or Dover.

The disgrace of Airlines such as Saudicargo or KLM or Cargolux or My Cargo or MK flying in at night with Manston closed and Ostend gunrunners to Africa or banned EU aircraft.

The destruction of Kent is complete.

There is no Kent economic policy.

We have junky towns on the scrapheap while we fund our councils to the tune of £2BN.

The town centres taken over by tramps, junkies, Special Brew yobs and stagnant pensioner-councillors.

Time for Change.

As Mayor I will introduce daily drug den raids to secure our towns and prevent drug abuse and burglary. And a no-shame-no-blame policy for addicts.

If you are on illegal drugs now is the time to get off them or onto legal medication.

As Mayor I will ensure the drug den raids and arrests increase.

Go to your doctor, chemist, hospital, police or a friend. Ask for help now: it is no-blame-no shame and the the drug dens will be closed.

Drug dens will be identified and closed and the drugs network rolled back.

No more Junky Towns in Rape Nation in Failed Kent.

Frontline Kent faces 85% of illegal drugs seized on the Continent. And rogue airports like Ostend leaking like a sieve in dealing in arms, blood diamonds and drugs to African war-zones.

And pandemic zones like Ebola in Guinea or TB in Romania or London.

All Kent drug dens raids and arrests and drug seizures will be publicised. The drugs will be torched, and the money and cars and jewellery returned or placed in a community fund.

Kent's coastal towns will reverse the seachange of failure in drugs. With benchmark policing with Switzerland and Holland and Japan.

A crackdown on crack dens. Smack down on smack dens. No heroin, cocaine or crack in Kent.

No dealing or growing of marijuana or skunk or hash.

Time for Change.

A 24/7 arrest warrant from the Courts for drug den raids: a Judge will get out of bed and sign the raid warrant. No more drugs dens or drugs stashes.

No junk Judge's like Glick and his Bar cronies and liar-lawyers.

Drug dog searches in suspected drug dens in tower blocks, barns and warehouses and ships and ports.

Police raids on illegal flights and late flights at Kent's airports and shippin gin ports or illegally berthed off Margate.

Drugs dealers cautioned and Special Branch surveillance.

International criminals abroad on the Costa Del Crime and Asia will be targeted: no hiding place and no drugs routes.

A crackdown on crack dens. A smackdown on smack dens. No heroin, cocaine or crack in Kent.

Time for Change

As Mayor every day I will be asking of Kent Police how many drug dens raids and how many arrests and how many drugs seized. And asking of the NHS Ambulance paramedic teams how many registered junkies and drugs use. And paramedic pub kits.

Day after day. How many drugs raids. Day after day. How many drugs arrests.

No white powder and no horse in The White Horse County.

Invicta on drugs in Kent.

The waiting is over.

The pensioners have failed us.

The Toxic Three of Carter, Gale and Wild have failed us.

Gale and Sandys have failed us.

Garbutt for Mayor in May 2014.

Time for Meiji Kent.

Time for Change.

I do see your point in being tough but its a bad policy and it has been tried over many years there are better ways. Dont force up the price of drugs by cracking down. It will only increase the amount of drug dealers coming to get a better price. If drugs could be free there would be no point for them to be imported or sold

Anonymous said...

8:30 meet there to wave off the KLM flight as good riddance, and hopefully Buchanan and Pedro are on it.

Sympathy for the staff is minimal: get another job or retire like the rest of us. It's not RAF Manston tax-funded for national defence and hasn't been for 10 years which is why it keeps failing.

Rather, the banned aircraft like Iran Air have been extemely dangerous and we need a Police investigation as to who allowed that.

Hart was meeting Buchanan every month and never said anything? The RTC/TDC councillors never said anything?

Good riddance to Manston and a better future as a cleaned-up field.

Anonymous said...

8:54 putting up the drugs price through seizures/reducing supply increases drug dealing? How so?

And drug use declines by providing free drugs?

You're toking on a fat one.

Surely reducing the illegal supply while providing prescription drugs for existing users is the way forward in reducing both drug use and dealing and illegal/contaminated drugs? Along with reducing HIV and burglary etc etc?

has being tough on drugs ever worked in the last 50 years when there was no law you either took them or you did not its down to information how to stop people taking them
most of the drugs taken in Victorian times did not make a problem its the crime to fund the drugs that causes the problem if people want to die taking drugs let them
take the money out of it

Read up on it when you think if its not worth it to the barons to import or to the chain underneath them the chain breaks down it would take only a few weeks to see a major slump in crime if you wanted to go further make alcohol a prescription drug then you would not need hardly any police at all 90% reduction in crime in total the NHS also would have enough money to treat all and give their workforce a pay rise

Already on the market in East Kent, a 765 acre farm can be yours for only £5million.

No not Manston but a portfolio of land and property overseen by the Prince of Wales who says says the land boasts “possibly the finest grade one and two land in Kent”.
It currently grows salad and arable crops.

So can Manston become a grade one farm?

Joe Turner said...

No, anon, Manston cannot be a 'Grade 1' farm as this is a designation which is determined by a soil survey. Much of Thanet is Grade 1 or Grade 2 under the Agricultural Land Classification, but being as Manston has not been agricultural for many years, it would not be possible to give it an ALC grade.

In fact, turning an airport into any kind of agricultural land would be a monumental task, and would probably be impossible.

Farmland for an airport is possible but it depends on the contamination which is easy to verify. Converting a WW2 airfield after WW2 probably wasn't too bad but Manston was used for decades so is brownfield land. The barracks area may not be though?

Anonymous said...

Cargolux have been using Stansted since Sunday, but as with any business they will go where the best price is. Normally with cargo aircraft the airport is determined by the shipping agent not the airline, if the shipper wants to stay at Stansted then that's where they will stay, if the shipper wants to return to Manston for any reason they will return.

“I have a willing buyer, and it depends whether the owner wishes to strike a deal.

“But anyone who thinks they are just going to buy Manston and develop it into a big housing estate has another thing coming.

“There is a lot of contamination on the land, and there is a significant archaeological site underneath, which will need to be excavated.

Well it seems as though the tax payer is going to foot the bill for manston airport keeping ramsgate down. Seems to be 1st on the list for gale and co no matter how much money it loses. When will these MPs understand its not what this area needs why should the tax payer pay for the airport when if the money it receives was spent on a little TLC on doing up the 3 towns for tourism. That would bring so many more jobs and prosperity.
SHAME on all the people that have pushed the olds in power to bring this to Thanet its all lies it will never employ the 1000s that Thanet needs. Now there will be less public money for the things that would make a difference. It has never worked as a private airport while tourism is booming in the uk its so sad.

Old windy bag forgets the big dig up at RAftracyland prior to its sale for pipe bombs and the like. As for archaeology its a pity not one dig took place when any infrastructure was paid for at public expense because of dodgy planners at TDC.

If we have pollution problems old windy its Nitrates unless you and the EA have hidden things such as lead (Pb) deposits.
