Dreamland evacuated

Rain stops play at dreamland, due to heavy rain and possible lightning, about 1.50 pm today security bods removed the public from the amusement park, and into the entrance area.

Still on the plus side is been a great day so far, with a test train on the scenic railway, I assume punters such as myself and grand kids will be back in the park shortly.

No refunds are available the park is technically open although visitors have been turfed out and not allowed back in at this stage. 14.26

Sun is out and so are paying guests , outside the amusement park with still no concrete information, when or if it will open.

@15:01 the sun has been out for ten minutes and Dreamland park is still not open and still no news as why or when the park reopens.

With no information left the park @15:20.

In my view this situation was badly handled, it may well have made sense to evacuate the park during heavy rain for safety reasons but not informing
customers what is happening and when the park might reopen is inexcusable.

I visited the park at the weekend and was very impressed with everything, the staff were very professional and helpful, the mood was good enhanced by various entertainment, facilities clean, the rides in good condition, overall I thought the experience as pleasurable as any park.

East Kent Sacrificed as France damages the UK Economy

Cutting through the back roads early this morning on the way into Margate, my attention was drawn to work at Manston airport to create a lorry park, it struck me in the dim light, as a somewhat weird and sinister sight, a line of tower lights have been placed along on the runway.

As I drove down Spitfire Way, I'm thinking,  how the hell are hundreds of trucks going to negotiate their way to the airport. (At its peak more 6,800 trucks have used the channel tunnel in one day).

Spitfire Way is a signifcant route out of Thanet travelled by many of us, who have to go outside the area for work it looks like commuters and those who live in Manston will be stuffed ,still the fat cat Tory masters in Maidstone and Etonian low lifes in Downing St. or indeed property speculators wont be losing any sleep.

It's some time since I last posted but the creation of a lorry park, at Manston is worth a mention,  my main thought is that, this may not have been possible without the Leadership of Kent County Council,  Paul Carter, has I understand has often suggested such a thing and has now got his way. So far his administrations has had many achievements traffic management is not one that comes to mind, in fact it's the controversies I recall, such as the failed broadcasting project, poor children services and fat payoffs to staff for reasons that have never been explained.

The background to the chaos at our channel ports, is the UK governments ineffectual reaction to repeated attacks by French activists. I think the Labour had it right the other day (not that they did Jack **** when in government) but its about time the government demanded compensation from France.

Part of the current disruption to cross channel traffic is caused by the plight of migrants, and I can understand why, they are so determined to get to the UK, however when we see the news, perhaps a question to ask is why are refuges are sleeping in tents and shacks, France is a rich country couldn't they do better.

My theory is that the limp attempts to keep channel crossings open are part of the French authorities conducting a covert economic war, some of the recent disruption has come from industrial disputes, it seems that France allows special interest groups to run riot, can anyone imagine Kent police to allowing trade unionist to blockade roads with mountains of burning car tyres such has recently been the case.

When will Cameron and his cronies man up and sort out France. It looks like Thanet is about to be cut off by the lunatic scheme to divert lorries 60 Miles from the channel ports.

Vote for Scobie and who knows what we will get

I'm thinking that few people gave much thought to who actually organised the stop ukip demonstration in Ramsgate this last weekend. Although I noticed a SWP member (Socialist workers party that no longer take part in elections) apparently organising things.

From talking to people at the protest I understand those taking part were mainly in support of the labour candidate Will Scobie, although there was a broad spectrum of left wing activists.

The labour party are not hiding their contempt for the democratic system by using  their stop Farage slogan on campaign literature, so I wonder whether they ought to be a little more open in what appears to be corporation between themselves and the far left.

It seems a bit rich, that Labour give the impression that they have become a moderate and responsible party, with all the journalist in town, you would think that some of them might just scratch the surface to see what lies underneath.

UKIP as a political party has really been created by the lack of debate from mainstream politicians such as Labour  Liberal Democrat and Conservative, unwilling to have an honest debate over the european union.

Seems that Labour are trying to paint UKIP as a bunch of thugs, when in actual fact they themselves created a climate in which honest debate was unavailable.

Sadly mainstream opinion is with UKIP, because Labour in particular have deserted ordinary people a long time ago, and in the process betrayed their own working class based background by gifting jobs, welfare and housing to people with no connection an no loyalty to the UK.

Labour only cares about jobs for the boys the party elite, forget the working class.

Labour heavy bought in to sort out Fannit South

You may remember actor and presenter Ross Kemp as one of the Mitchell bruvvers in East Enders and latterly what I take to be infotainment programme's on satellite TV  about  "gangs" "war" and other such testosterone fueled malarkey, anyway luckily for the Scobie fighting for Saff Fannit, it turns out that the TV celebrity happens to be a life long labour bod, who despite having little association with Thanet now wants to get involved.

So what's burning up  Labour luvvie Ross, seems UKIP have (shock horror), targeted Thanet South as a likely seat for Nigel Farage, 

I doubt that Ross has over-loaded his brain with the thought that Labour has it seems itself cynically groomed young Will Scobie, first I presume hardly out of education and probably no real work experience, he was given an easy seat on the local council, then shortly after made Mayor of Margate(shows some contempt for Margate), and then selected for the county council, targeted just like Farage targeted for winnable seat. 

A cynical move by Will Scobie and the labour party targeting a seat which is loaded generally toward the conservatives but aware the right wing vote would be split by UKIP.

Crikey what next Ray Winston knocking on you door on  Thursday asking you to Vote Naaaow.

Do we really want Scobie????

Dismal Labour and other thoughts on Thanet general election

Is this the most depressing election ever, despite all the assurances to the contrary, I'm sure any rational person has dismissed the idea that Ed Milliband is tough enough, or that his retched crew of no good charlatans are up to governing.

I've had little time to study the form of Thanet's contestants in the race to parliament, however sad as it is Thanet North will only ever see Gale displaced by the passage of time, good knows why but that is how it is.

Thanet South is certainly s mixed bag the best candidate being Russ Timpson, and i don't just say that because he's the liberal democrat, certainty otherwise the choice is dismal, the Tory  previously a UKIP man,  of the rest Ian Driver the Green candidate is the only other stand out man, if for nothing else exposing some of the less than wholesome activities and shocking events of the local council.

Will Scobie has for me shown himself to be the surprise non-entity, the best so far from him appears to be, that desperate plea for people to vote tactically, a tactic deplored generally by mediocre politicians who've little or nothing to offer.

It seems such waste, still finally we've the UKIP party leader, Nigel Farage it's difficult to comment on, since the media in general and state funded BBC journalist in particular have been busting their balls to discredit and demonize Farage ever since the European elections.

I think Thanet south electorate have a real choice and if anything it's wide open, they can act like sheep and be herded up like sheep by Labours young inexperienced Will Scobie, (who as I understand has rarely if ever had a real job that didn't involve working for the labour party) , or they could go for some of the exotic, perhaps the passionate "man of the people" Ian Driver, maybe the voters of Thanet could, dare I say it challenge the media bigotry and vote for Farage because if no else, he at least has had the courage to question and raise the concerns of those who would like Britain to be a sovereign country not ruled from Germany.

Finally you could make a completely rational choice and vote Liberal Democrat, and acknowledge the accomplishments of the liberals in government, lower tax, better opportunity's for children and real help for children from poor backgrounds, or why not just go mad and vote for the know nothing & no experience Scobie, despite all the doors and orchestrated rise to labour parliamentary candidate, ask yourself this what has young will achieved. Errrrr.....
