Following on from my recent mention of the demolition site in Northdown Road, apparently left abandoned by the site owner, when I past by midday this was being boarded up, about blimin time! As you can see from the picture below this site was previously left in a potentially dangerous state.
I was told last week, that the owners of the site, had not been helpful in making the site secure, putting Thanet council in the awkward position of sorting the mess out, presumably using council funds, to sort out.
Anyhow just as an experiment of sorts, I thought I'd conduct a consumer test on my local council representatives, sending them a link to my earlier posting on the matter, Labour Cllr S Hart, Conservative Cllr M Jarvis, Independent Cllr T Watt-Ruffell, of the three, so far only Michael Jarvis responded, despite Labour selling Cllr S Hart as Dane Valley's wonder councillor, and Ted Watt Ruffell has never responded to emails.
Just a quick mention on Manston, it seems to me that, the issue of a few flights at night has become a magnet for cranks from across East Kent, Herne Bay seems one hotspot, I note one blogger is even suggesting that I'm a bigot, tut tut, I'm not quite sure that anyone could possibly hear planes from Manston, finally, my last post was a reaction to the Gazettes trawling up a comment, out of context, although its fair to say that having pointed in the past to some of the dubious adult advertising carried in both the Gazette and Thanet Times its unlikely that those employed by Kent Regional News (Northcliff Media) are likely to be to kind.
