Rebuilding The Great Wall of Ramsgate

KCC have granted another year’s licence for the Pleasurama hoarding and the first of the pictures are due to go back up later today.

Here is the link to previous postings about the Great Wall of Ramsgate, pictures of the pictures and so on http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/The%20Great%20Wall%20of%20Ramsgate   


  1. Great news Michael.I thought the project might have ended up being abandoned.

  2. Another stupid UKIP idea scuppered - hurrah! Quite what UKIP were thinking of when they asked Kent Highways to get the hoarding put back to the original boundaries, god knows. On the other hand, speaking of GO'D, one does have to wonder whether his Great Wall is playing into the hands of Swiss Terry and his mysterious developers. Beautifying the hoarding only serves to camouflage the hideous eyesore they have turned our seafront into.

  3. At least moving the hoarding back would have returned a large slice of the promenade back to public use. As for the paintings, they do attract favourable comments from visitors but then as a visitor myself I guess I'm prejudiced.

  4. My take is that while it would have been nice to have a bit more prom, this is the best we would be likely to get this year and that it is preferable to have some paintings there than nothing at all.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
