Then and now

It appears that some of Thanet's blogging community are beginning to show their true colours.

Maciegrace the staunch defender of Margate, has admitted that she finds its population rude and ill mannered.

Rick is getting praise for his Sherlock Holmes impersonation, although there is still passionate pleas for 'brevity' in his chronicles.

Matt of the Thanet Star is not actually a blogger, but a highly paid salesperson for that small corporation Google.

The hypocrite Taxi driver, accusing bloggers of promoting issues like Chinagate above more important issues. Then posting on Chinagate, thus getting more comments than on any other previous post.

ECR our resident Plane spotting, council bashing, defender of the Eastcliff in Ramsgate has spat his dummy out of the pram (if you are prepared to dish it out, be prepared to accept it).

However if you are looking for consistency type 'naked Thanet' or 'aquifer Thanet' into google and our very own Peter and Michael are in the top 5 (varies) results.

A step forward for Thanet.

With the planning application for the China Gateway finally approved, I can't help but think this is a victory for the silent majority against the vocal minority.

All that Thanet needs now is for the Airport's expansion plans to come to fruitation, and hopefully Planet Fanet will not become a retirement village.

Malmesbury, not in India.

In the day and age of poor customer service, I am happy to say that I have found a British company to rave about.


I ordered a spare part off the internet, this promptly arrived after 5 days. As it turned out I had ordered the wrong part, so I phoned the customer helpline. At this point I was sweating and shaking with trepidation at speaking to an Indian call centre and being placed on hold for 30 minutes, then when answered me not understanding the person on the other end and vice versa.

But Linda answers within 3 rings, introduces herself and asks how she can help (I nearly fell off the sofa). Within 5 minutes she has identified the correct part, explained I could have it FOC (5 year guarantee). Gives me a free post address to return the part that I incorrectly ordered, and told me that I would get a full refund. The call centre is open 7am to 10pm, 7 days a week.

All I need now is Dyson to supply my gas, electric, internet, phone, etc etc etc.
