In his fortnightly address to the people of Thanet, leader of the council Clive 'Bulldozer' Hart addressed the issues of the day. The piece was subtitled "Wot I Did Wiv My Weekend" describing how he spent time with his grand children. His grand children's teachers gave the piece a C- and said it needed work.

Clive Hart Thanet

There are a number of pressing issues around Thanet at the moment - Manston Airport, the Independent Report, the removal of the Chief Executive, Alan Foole to name a few - and Bulldozer Hart chose to ignore all of them and take the ostrich approach - if you pretend everything is OK people will forget about the issues soon. 

At this weeks full Council meeting, Clive proudly talked about a number of projects the Council were working on. The news for Ramsgate was very good news with a number of projects being put in place. These were all initiated by the Ramsgate Councillors and were a concession to the people of Ramsgate to keep them quiet. But then the list became a little bizarre. Because the silver fox started to take credit for a number of projects that were not his.

He bragged about the Friends of Ellington Park. A grass roots community group that recently won the Peoples Millions. He bragged about the Broadstairs Shed project - another lucky recipient of the funding. Ramsgate Tunnels was his idea. He bragged about the skatepark investment, despite the fact that a contract has yet to be rewarded. 

In his next leaders report, will Clive be claiming that he invented the wheel and that plans are in place for a teleportation device. 

Many local commentators have noted that this is getting beyond a joke. As Clive keeps saying that issues should not be political, people are noting that the current administration is getting desperate.

Keep calm and pretend everything is ok

Facebook Thoughts

I need to put a few more images out there. So here goes. I am going to try to target the search term "Alan Poole Thanet". At present, I have about 5% of the images when you do that search term. I am aiming for more.

Getting Out There

So I set up a Facebook site about ten months ago now. if you want a look.

Its very much a niche site, aimed at life in Thanet in Kent, where I currently live. Its been responsible for highlighting some of the current councils errors.

Clive Hart Closes Cliftonville Skatepark

The issue raised above was close to my heart, knowing lots of local skaters. The local council leader Clive Hart bulldozered a DIY Skate park at dawn. Shocking. 

However, I have noticed that when it comes to google, none of the images are indexed. Which annoys me. So here we go - lets see if you index this one google - hopefully you will and then I will have a good reason to start using you!

And sorry if there are errors in formating - I am still getting to grips with this.
