Oh My Cod!
From the new signage it looks as though Eddie Gilberts fishmonger and gourmet fish restaurant in King Street Ramsgate that closed after the tragic early death of its owner Johnny Dunhill is to reopen as a chippy.
Having just had a peruse of the news and the blogs it seems Tony Bignews is saying UKIP leader Nigel Farage is going to stand as candidate to be the MP of Thanet South – the constituency that covers Sandwich, Ramsgate Broadstairs and a fair old chunk of Cliftonville – Nigel Farage on the other hand, talking on the Andrew Marr show this morning seemed to be saying he was most likely to stand in Folkestone.
I would guess our Laura is breathing a sigh of relief as I guess this would have split the Conservative vote more than the Labour vote.
Personally I would be surprised if UKIP did anything like as well in the parliamentary and district elections as they did at County.
Voter wise though my take is that most of the swingers in the constituency may well be in Ramsgate and from what people are saying I would think Will Scobie is in with a very good chance either way.
Ian is certainly a very good speaker, I don’t think I could blog this way, when I see one our councillors with an exceptional skill, the thing that strikes most is how little the council as a whole seems to make of these skills.
We have Simon Moores who has considerable experience with ITC, and yet the council seem unable to get a convincing and watchable video of council meetings on youtube in a timely fashion.
It looks like the councils IT team could learn a lot from Ian Driver when it comes to producing a video.
After all our Trace, with her blue woman having difficulty inserting blue tampon, a very tentative series of sketches, which didn’t seem to do much for me when I was looking at them, did something. What? Hard to say really, perhaps to do with the any lose toys in my attic, but. Yes. I did feel the urge to go out and sketch after each visit.
I don’t think I would be much good at video blogging, but may give it a go at some time.
I had hoped to get to the new exhibition at The Turner Contemporary today but it looks like family commitments are not going to make this possible.
To be honest I had difficulty with the last exhibition, I went several times and it looked OK but just didn’t seem to make my artistic wotsisname revolve, so I am feeling a bit deprived and really want to se the Turners and Constables asap.
This isn’t something I can explain, as it doesn’t seem to be about whether I think the exhibition is any good, just that some exhibitions seem to inspire me to paint and draw and some don’t.
