Ramsgate on BBC Homes Under The Hammer

I watch BBC Homes Under The Hammer most days it is one of my morning rituals, well today they showed Ramsgate King Street. A couple of guys bought a derelict site ond eventually built two wonderful town houses. I say eventually because planning took them over two years. Now I dont pretend to know the details and I expect TDC's planning department have a rock solid alibi asto why planning took that long but my first thoughts on it was that is BAD. Any developer watching that programme this morning will have thought sod that I will build elsewhere.
We are at the end of one of the worst recessions in the last 100 years and TDC's planning department were not busy yet they took two years to sort out what they would and would not accept. COME ON GUYS. One man with a typewriter  and pigeon post would have been faster. We  pay TDC to act responsibly on our behalf and I must say I dont think they do a very good job in many areas but this on National Television was not showing Thanet in a good light.

Ukip or Greens for Thanet South

It seems the Green Party fancy their chances in next year's General Election. They are going to church everything including the kitchen sink at certain seats mainly ones that had Liberal candidates in the last election but don't be surprised if Nigel Farrage has to run against a Green candidate who has his full green party support. Personally I don't see Labour or Conservative throwing much up against Farrage, I just hope Thanet South voters don't vote Ukip. I would love to see Farrage fail to get into parliament. I would love to see Mark Reckless fall flat on his face at Rochester but then I am vehement in my opposition to Skip, I just hope the electorate see through Ukip the same way as I do.
