A few Ramsgate and Medway Queen photos and a bit of a ramble.

Photos first

























 It’s been a busy week in my bookshop and very nice to have the bank holiday break now. News wise we did get woken up by the earthquake which seems to have been caused by seismic activity ten miles under Pegwell Bay. Having checked the vibration wasn’t caused by drunks breaking the shop window downstairs I went back to sleep and dreamt of the legendry island of Lomea vaguely wondering if it was a earthquake that did for it.

The flack is starting to fly on the new UKIP councillors front and their ill advised use of social media.

Apart from Cllr Bertie Braidwood http://www.kentonline.co.uk/thanet/news/ukip-councillor-investigated-over-offensive-37485/ a quick look at facebook and twitter suggests there are at least another five who have like some dubious site or another.  

I may ramble on here

  1. I am sure you're right that Councillor Braidwood won't be alone; he has a certain Conservative Councillor from Deal for company as a starter. What is equally distasteful is the indignation claimed by Councillor Bayford. His reaction is in sharp contrast to his, and his fellow Conservatives', initial silence over the now infamous "AIDS" phone message left by Councillor Gregory, and the allegedly racist joke circulated by the (then) Conservative Councillor Latchford. I somehow doubt that Bayford is really bothered about what Braidwood has posted, but is more interested in political point-scoring. Politicians of all Parties will probably behave similarly, and it is only when they stop this hypocrisy that the electorate may begin to view them less negatively.

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.
