Through the Back Door

Avoiding Cllr Driver at All Costs
You may have noticed some interesting 'goings-on' in Margate this morning and I was watching it all happen below me from 1,000 feet over the Turner Contemporary Gallery.

The Prime Minister, cleverly avoided our local anarchists, diversity champion, Cllr Driver and the handful of assembled anarchists, animal rights and socialists, protesting bravely outside the front of the gallery and the other VIPs, the Qatari's landed at Margate football club.

A Small Protest
You may notice that the large crowd of welcoming protestors, referred to by Cllr Ian Driver on his weblog, isn't really that large and impressive from above.

More photos later if you pop in as I'm processing them now. The internet has been very slow today. Putting-up the high-resolution shots might take days at the present rate of upload!

Was Driver there? I didn't see him (nor any diversity champion), though I did see the Wicked Witch of The North with her usual half a dozen followers.

Our local political protest movements are self indulgent and rather quaint.

They're also rather stupid John: I was horrified to see many of them shouting abuse at the RNLI members who happened to be there!

slow broadband in Westgate.....

Superfast broadband should be available 1st of September 2013. Most fibre optic cabinets have been installed already in Westgate.

Anonymous 3:05 pm,

In their infantile fantasy world they probably take the RNLI to be some Government paramilitary organisation that is out to get them.

The usual suspects are already moaning about loss of business in Margate today due to the TC being shut. Why can't they see the bigger picture, in that such a high profile visit (like the Queen before him) can do wonders for publicising Margate, particularly if they'd gone to the trouble of making banners actually welcoming him! Idiots.

Which wicked witch of the north? There are a few?

I wish they didn't stand on the new plants while they protested, I thought that was rather thoughtless and its not wise or indeed pleasant to shout abuse at local Lifeboat crews.

Of course there were few protesters at that time of day. They were all at work, weren't they?

Yeah, right.
