|View over Margate in Snow 2013|
I took my camera with me on the way to the council offices and grabbed some scenic photos, which managed to make the town appear quite colourful in the sharp contrasts thrown by the light and snow.
Other than Easyjet's apology to the town of Margate, following the weekend's furore, I have news from Thanet Council, that my Standards hearing is now set for 10:00 am on 30th January, as a public hearing. I'm told that Cllr Dr. Jack Cohen has refused to accept my public apology for my satirical description of him here as 'Sober Jack' and so the matter will now proceed to its final inquisitorial stage at great public expense.
Presently, the Council's public works department is trying to establish whether the budget exists to build a scaffold in Cecil Square, outside the magistrates court and if not, would Cllr Driver's soap-box (more of a large crate really) and a length of rope thrown over the bus stop sign, satisfy the small army of Health and Safety officers.

I suspect that places at the hearing may in short supply, so best apply to the Council's democratic services department if you plan on saving a good seat.
The diversity examination by ordeal, subsequent sentencing and prompt execution, promises to be a family day out in the finest 18th century tradition and I plan to wear my best wig and make a fine speech, before the soap box is pulled away and I'm left to dangle in front of a cheering public.
One of my favourite Monty Python clips is shown below by complete coincidence!
