Some old pictures of Ramsgate. Forming local government around an airfreight hub, airport and other local issues and Margate's dark satanic mills

 Pictures will expand if click on them and as you can read the weather 111 years ago, rotten.

21 Conservatives or at least something like that, May’s Marauders – I think they are interested in cuts, although cuts of what – real estate perhaps?

13 UK Independence Party, possibly hoping for? The DCO so the government can use a compulsory purchase order to buy The Manston Airport site? is that wrong? leaving the EU for Thanet?

12 Independent UK Independence Party who want to find a financial partner so the council can use a compulsory purchase order to buy The Manston Airport site. I think this was the group that started out wanting an airport so they couldn't fly to Europe, Thanet politics is a very complex issue. Anyway Bob said - no dice.

6 Labour, only six of them after Iris and her serling work resolving the issues in Ramsgate where most of the Labour vote came from.

2  Independent Party. Indipendent

2 Independent Independent Party. More independent. 

On the whole I think the important thing here is not to panic. We know the answer is 56 it's the question that's the problem 

They have to form a wosisname? Government, augment, failure, something like that, no overall wosisname? Controls.

What should we say our objectives are?




Dog poo



What do we want?

To win


Big dinners

What will we get?

Long and rather boring meetings.

After a very persuasive argument on the benefits of flying in bananas on Facebook I have now to admit to having changed my stance over Manston.

I am now inclined to favour the freight hub with Roger Gale, wosisface and RSP, I would say sacrificing a few years off the lives of the oaps in the Thanet coastal towns is a small price to for reducing pollution levels in the rest to the southeast. Getting a situation where the pollution generated by over 10,000 freight movements p.a. only arrives in the Thanet towns before it harmlessly blows over Europe. As the scientific community are coming down with the view that PM2.5s are the main cause of dementia the oaps probably wouldn’t know too much about it anyway.

To quote RSP’s 2018 Preliminary Environmental Impact Study (non technical summery) 1.1.108 “There is health evidence drawn from the scientific literature that allows potential impacts on mortality and rates of certain diseases due to changes in noise and air pollutant exposure to be predicted quantitatively (in numerical terms). The scientific evidence shows that, depending on the level of noise or air pollution concentration, these may affect diseases of the heart, lungs and circulation system, mental health and wellbeing, and the overall risk of premature death.” I do wonder how they are getting on calculating the mortality rate? “In numerical terms.”

One difficulty for me on this one is the two secondary schools in listed building in Ramsgate, two of my children are studying in one of them, of course as part of the airfreight hub planing consent (DCO special 7 card whist trump rules para 1.1.108b) we could remove the conservation zone and listed building status so they could be fitted with double glazing, Or better still demolished to make way for modern buildings.

You know another interesting aspect of the particulate pollution associated with the 10,000 freight movements which would burn at least 10,000 tonnes of avgas on the ground at Manston per year would be a reduction in fertility here in Thanet. This could go some considerable way to solving out housing problem 

And of course when you get right down to it. Do we really want people wandering around charged with a lot of healthy sperm? 

You know how some people have difficulty distinguishing between left and right, or in one embarrassing case Port and Starboard (famous twins Ransomely) with me it's, up and down.

Srewth I forgot, here are some pictures of Margate's dark satanic mills in celebration of the new cap and vein

Post a Comment

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.
