I have just had my lunch while watching PMQs which was almost enough to put me off voting for anyone.

It did however make me think about the use of the question in debate and how they are much easier to ask than to answer.

On the local history front I have been interested as to how much interest there has been in stuff relating to Broadstairs, with considerable feedback related to the Dancing Queen World Record Broadstairs 22nd May 2011 picture, so here is the link to the blog post about that then. This includes link to pictures of the event and has some videos of the dancing embedded in it http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/2011/05/dancing-queen-world-record-broadstairs.html



Back to the questions, on the Manston front, for those who only want aviation use for the site, what use would thy like for the site if aviation just proves unviable and therefore impossible there? And of course the other way around, if the DCO gets approved and Manston gets turned into a busy airfreight hub, do those against this think there will be some way of living with it or will they just move away?

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.
