Simple pleasures, like taking a stroll around town, on a Sunday, doesn't seem as popular as it once was, I notice parks are generally thinly populated, it's probably a sign of the times why stroll when you can shop at Westwood even the seafront at Margate appeared lonely and unloved.
I suppose it is still April but in the sun it seemed warm enough, strolling around looking for somewhere to eat is not one of my best skills, and Sundays is always a difficult with me, since many eateries choose to do roast dinners, which in my opinion are always best home cooked, eventually settled for Beano's, not a bad choice as it happens, simple food, liver and bacon a classic.
Not sure what or why but it was pleasing to see children and teenagers in scouting clobber, march down past the Turner Contemporary along the front and then up the High St. as I say I don't know what it was all about but good to, that children are still involved in such groups.
I just wonder how much longer it will be that people will be allowed parade with the Union Jack and the St George Cross before being accused of hate crime or offending feeble brained Labourites and wolly liberals.
Anyway as we know shortly the Farage road show comes to town, and I just hope that he will be able to speak without the previous nonsense from Thanets red brigade a strange mixture of eccentrics from militant little ladies understandably upset over animal rights at Ramsgate port, but no so keen on fellow humans, bulk standard socialist worker types, the odd councillor and a sprinkling of what appears to be work shy layabouts who've spent too convincing themselves that cannabis improves their health.
Anyhoo that's enough, I shall now, have a break, still briefly I'm looking forward to seeing the UKIP leader (if I can get a couple of tickets) and I hope this time Thanets thugs and the slippery cheer leaders step back.
Finally and it needs saying I've not become a member of UKIP but they certainly have a valid cause and one which I agree, Europe is without legitimacy, no question and migration is completely out of control, its simply true we don't have the space or the need for more people.
