Beau Diddley

Cripes! Look what's just plopped into my box! A letter from Dr Beau Webber, Roger Gale's Manston mouthpiece, to the new majority owners of the former airport!

Dr Beau is, er, far from congratulatory. In fact, if you ask me, his tone is slightly menacing. But that's just what you'd expect from a campaign that hasn't exactly held back from using personal threats by its henchmen against anyone who dares to utter an alternative view.

Anyhoo, take a gander and make up your own mind (click on the pics to big 'em). I couldn't possibly comment, considering the restraining order I'm under... but I'm sure you lot will! Pip pip!

You Geste of course.

The letter is firm and sticks to the facts as understood by the author, and is no more than I would expect from a pro Manston supporter. Nothing wrong with that. I detect no menace, only honest questions which need answering. Will you be publishing the response to this missive?

There is no airport and no planning permission for an airport.
Dr Beau Webber should stick to his day job at the Kentish third rate university and mind he doesn't get neutron scattered.
What excessive utter pompous tripe he has written.

Anonymous said...

His claim that his organisation has the backing of 23,000 good Kentish and Thanet people falls down at the first hurdle. Can he prove they are all "good" and can he prove that they are all from Kent and Thanet? No doubt amongst the 23,000 are many that do not want an airport or extra runways in their backyards and would rather that it was elsewhere.

This is clearly politically motivated - to try and save Gale's increasingly egg-covered face (indeed both his faces). It takes a snide pop at Labour's Scobie, yet makes no reference to KCC Leader Carter's swift and enthusiastic endorsement of the sale of, and plans for, Manston.

I have not been against an airport as some have been - more of an agnostic I guess - but I am beginning to sense that party politics is running through the pro-lobby more than a real interest in the commercial future of the area.

There has been virtually no support - theoretical or practical - for Gale and Sandys from within the Tory Party outside Thanet, yet they say nothing about this. They are simply building to score points against their political opponents locally - either directly of through their cronies such as Webber

Richard Eastcliff said...

OK, I'll settle for 'arsey' Mr BEMBOB. And I very much doubt there will be a reply, but should one come my way I will, of course, publish it in the interest of balance, natch.

Anonymous said...

Beau certainly seems an arse. What idiotic tripe.

Even he can see it's no longer an airport. Gale is abusted flush and the other ppoliticians were either deliberately deceiving sma over a cpo or have drifted away to the business park idea.

Probably land banking as a park is the way forward.

What a bizarre letter. Does anyone know why this chap is so desperately anxious to retain the airport? Does he just enjoy leading his raggle-taggle army and writing rambling, vaguely menacing letters to companies? Has he been listening to Megaphone Man? Is Iris Johnston really the Manston bunny? So many questions.

What else do you expect but completely bias views on trying to open a new airport on the former airfield site, this proves it has nothing to do with jobs. This lot are acting moronic, no logic, no sence, they bliet about its history when it usrd to be an airfield, lets examine for a moment, cargo, passanger flights, other aviation trades, pilot practice for airlines, a museum, a cafe, 700 very under used, 4 owners, 2 of which had aviation knowledge, no profit, huge losses, polluting the aquifer, the surface, and no plans for protecting Ramsgate, too far from London, not enough catchment area.
Now lets look at the laeful owners, a multi use site, at leadt hundreds if not thousands more jobs, no environmental impact least not as much as aviation produces, schools which are needed for our already creaking education system in Thanet, homes for people which will have the moneybto buy them bringing new money, good for TDC and Kent.
If it were about jobs, even if the new owner produced 1000 jobs, it would be more than the maximum 350 jobs the old use of the site produced, thats not even 1 job per acre.
Poloticians are playing games, non more than the current lot at TDC.
Stop calling it an airport, as it isn't, it is however a brown field site for development.
SAY NO TO CPO.

Funny how they accuse the new owners of not knowing what their Support Group neglected to tell the public ?

It seems they object to a purchase during ongoing litigation but thought seeking a CPO during ongoing use litigation was fine.

It would be interesting to know what plans were afoot in military exercises especially a Royal Marines SBS one of 1989. Denial of channel ports and assets to an imaginary Soviet invading horde. Just like WW2 then, plans to blow up Manston as it is in the wrong place strategically.

I hope that by now, everyone concerned with transparency and integrity in the Manston affair has called, written to or emailed the Democratic Service bod at TDC. Failing that, contact Iris herself.

Why? Because this time the council and Iris in particular must not be allowed to accept a petition, publicly or in private, which includes signatures obtained as a result of false claims made by supporters of the former airport.

If they have been told in advance, it is my understanding that any council officer accepting such a petition would be in breach of local council codes of conduct. When you contact the council, ask them to look at the Manston Phoenix and Manston Pickle sites which have highlighted this issue.

This is no time for a repeat of the last time the council bent over backwards to accept a petition which was ultimately rejected by the council's own officer responsible for Democratic services.

Also, please contact all news sources and tip them off so they can keep an eye on this. This will be a real test of the council's integrity.

10.24 the aquifer has been polluted for years. Speak to Southern Water who will tell you that only 2per cent of our tap water comes from Thanet's aquifers. Pollution has come mainly from over extraction allowing saline water in. It's very difficult to get out once in. Whether the airports operations have added to this is not clear. However, we can suspect.

Anonymous said...

Aquifer contamination may be the wrong question anon 10.24

There are two remediations that were kept secret from Thanet public knowledge until FOIs from Richard Card.

Sericol and Thor.

Many NHS hospitals have direct abstraction licences for laundry cost saving. But it appears QEQM does not abstract its own non-potable water. So that is OK.

But there are direct abstraction licences within the zone of Sericol. That is K Laundry and Newlands Farm.

In 1993, when Sericol huge contamination of aquifer was discovered, Rumfields drinking water abstraction was switched off. The question is whether they had been abstracting contaminated water for 30 years from 1963 to 1993 and whether it has had an adverse health effect.

As so often happens Thanet Online and its team of blah blah bloggers already know the answers. Whereas the rational approach would be to try to promote expert inquiry.

So within the hazard zone of Sericol there are three abstractions. K Laundry, Newlands Farm and Thor remediation.

Thor has not tackled mercury contamination yet. Thor remediation is expected to take decades and Sericol contamination to remain a problem for the foreseeable future.

The most dangerous form of mercury is reckoned to be just 0.5% of the total mercury contained in a plume at Thor.

There have been reports from beachcombers of mercury being found on Margate beaches. The problem there would not be drinking supply but waste drains and sewage outfalls probably. Whether investigation of drain integrity, flowing away from Thor position, is meritted would be for Southern Water and TDC.

Hope that was helpful.

1999 USA criminal inquiry re Mercury waste shipments

What is worth keeping an eye on is the Cato Ridge South Africa Thor site. Cato Ridge has a "Dry port" facility I think now that would mean containers can be railed direct to port for shipment. If there is mercury still in leaking containers there and if it is returned to company (Thor) country of origin.

Hence when mercury remediation does begin at Thor Margate maybe keep a close eye on how much they are treating ??

SEMBOB How does this sit your beliefs

£1bn against £20m, 144 jobs against 4000, a future for Ramsgate or certain doom, a real company against a Delaware off shore style company, a tried and tested successful business plan against a tried and tested failed business plan, a UK based established company or a USA 3 month old company, the owner or a long protracted CPO,

Or are you so set in your ways you cant see whats good for Thanet?

Even if TDC are as stupid to proceed with a CPO and rule out housing even though its not their job (its plannings Dept's job) then there are still a few flies in your ointment, 1) The CPO has to be in the public interest and we all know now that this could not ever be the case as I have shown above 2) If the planning rule out houses then the owners will appeal and win, as there is no reason not to build houses. We are just lucky that its a mixed development with 4000 jobs included and not all houses.

Still Even More Bemused Of Birchington said...

Purple Om, have you read today's letter page in The Isle of Thanet Gazette where people put it far more eloquently than me? The only prospect for jobs within two years is with Manston flying again. And remember we are 144 jobs down at the moment, how does that sit with 4000 jobs in the distant future. The hangars are for rent at Manston, but as yet there are no takers. The discovery park is full of firms that have moved from elsewhere, so by and large no new jobs. All the new owners will do is make room for 4000 people to work. That doesn't create jobs. Perhaps we could get some ice cream salesmen on £80,000 a year to set up stall on the runway.

There are plenty of reasons not to build houses at Manston and to reject any such proposal eg overbuild, empty houses, contamination etc.

You have contentiously complained about skilled jobs at Manston now someone has bought the place and said they will create 4000 skilled jobs in industry.
Please can you explain to all that have read your posts since the closure of Manston why you feel the need to contradict yourself so unashamedly?

Manston is bust again and the Riveroak plan is as feeble as DP if not worse.

The issue rather than an unrealistic cpo is why our politicians have failed with thousands of jobs lost in the area.

Typical Left Wing argument Purple Om. You claim I have said something that I haven't then accuse me of contradiction. I have never complained about skilled jobs at Manston unless you mean that I am disappointed to see them go. Take a reality check Mr Purple Om. Anybody can say they will create jobs. Where are they? When will the first employee be taken on? Will these be new jobs or existing jobs moving from elsewhere? If A.Gloag had done what she initially said she would then perhaps Manston would have been taking staff on by now. All I see at the moment is 144 more people on the scrap heap and multi millionaires playing monopoly while Thanet seeks a solution.

You need to consider pollution at Manston because it's on the aquifer and would be new/extra pollution to the roads.

We don't need an airport or offices etc. Once DP is filled with 6,000 science jobs as was at Pfizer, we could then consider other sites.

The Manston site should be cleaned and used as a park. The aquifer would eventually then be cleaned and refilled.

At worst it will be left as derelict like the Hoverport or Port. Or indeed Dreamland and Pleasurama.

Purple Om said...

The calls for the head of Kent's county council leader Paul Carter to resign by SMA is just another reminder of their desperation and bullying tactics against anybody who dare try and tell the truth about Manston airport. There has been many such victims including Cllrs MP's and public, when will the main offenders be held to account?
I think now it is obvious to anybody other than Iris and her merry band of SMA supporters that Manston airport will never be granted a CPO by anybody and its time for TDC to announce it. This delay in announcing the end of proceedings against the owner is doing terrible damage to any investment in Thanet and especially in Ramsgate with a lot of planned regeneration for our seafront. Speaking of which the new anti-stance of the pleasurrama site is, Thant the beach in front of the site will become private for the owners of the flats and the toilet block will be knocked down because it spoils the view. In my opinion these new rumours are no more far fetched than the others like the site is the public's or the sites flood defenses or the wall behind the site or the shadow the new building will throw.
When will people understand that this development is vital for Ramsgate without it Ramsgate may very well find itself being left behind as who will want to invest on a seafront with a building site for the foreseeable future?

If you believe that I would prefer jobs to go overseas or to London then you are sadly mistaken.

My reference to jobs from elsewhere refers to the fact that existing jobs have moved from place A to place B without actually generating any new jobs.

All I am asking is where are these 4000+ jobs in the next 20 years? Will they arrive on a regular basis, in a few years time, or never?

Ian Driver thinks he can delay the pleasurama site from being built so it will return to the people of Ramsgate he has not done his homework AT ALL. Lets just assume that he gets his way and SFP sell to TDC for their costs of £7 million and TDC find that money, what would it cost to build the public space that a very few people want? Lets just say it costs £3 million, thats £10 million that TDC don't have but the far more lightly story, would have to be a CPO of the site that would take 3 years + the time it would take to build the public space + the cost of the legal fees around £11+million and maybe 5-8 years to complete putting off any investor from investing on Ramsgate sea front and killing any chance of Ramgates regeneration. What some people don't understand is the shops and hotel are things for Ramsgate not what a developer would choose to build as there is less profit in these things than flats. Lets just say that this development doesn't go though than we are bound for TDC to sell the site to another developer with a far less attractive building with no shops or hotel, Leaving us with a huge box like structure full of flats.

As for TG aviation, they have not just suddenly lost money cause they moved to Lydd whichbis mire central in Kent and nearer London, more over flies over nothing within a mile unlike Manstgone, they have lost money since before they left, lets see if they get more than thec200 hundred that appeared to suppiort the concert laid on by SMA and supported by Iris, who would show up for an openning of an envelope, so careful next time your openning your post.

Manston's old owners all had cargo arriving at the airport are we expected to believe the old owners turned down chances to expand the cargo side of their business just to go bust?

Iris and TDC need to be investigated, there are leaks from her Council and Cabinet to SMA as seen on there website, the TDC officers and legal with investigations do not suppirt a CPO of the brownfield Manston site, KCC favour the mixed use development due to the vast benefits it will bring in school places, doctors places, jobs and homes, all needed, Westminster do not want it, it is unlawful to follow up on, sma are intimidating and bullying there way to force it and Riveroak have nothing new to offer which hasnt failed previously. This is becoming the biggest mistake of TDCs history, why the delay, announce now it is over your fooling no one Iris, Mike Richard, at least there are some in council with ambition and common sence. Work with the new owners to bring jobs, as you are now delaying development. The acting chief executive needs to force the end of this now, as said, it iseven unlaful and cannot succeed, press on now with the new vision, enough misguided support of something which does not exist anymore, SMA get a life NO TO CPO, ITS OVER.
