Flogging our Assets

There are only a few days left of the public consultation about the councils plans to sell off some of the publicly owned buildings in Thanet.

My concern is that some of these were leisure facilities and that the lack of leisure facilities is both damaging to tourism and social order.

Once again this business of making our towns nastier places directly benefits the out of town facilities at Westwood Cross, I am always suspicious when government makes decisions that the very wealthy benefit to the detriment of ordinary people.

Click here for the councils press release which has contact details should you wish to comment on this as part of the public consultation process.

    All this talk of needing to raise money for the Ramsgate swimming pool is flannel as by the time its built TDC will end up spending more.

    We need quality entertained not only in Ramsgate but elsewhere in Thanet.

    Look what Ralph and his team have done at the Granville.

    Flog off the ports at Ramsgate to a trust at say 40 million - job done.



Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
