But what is worse as far as I am concerned, is that this 'montage' was part of Margate Rocks Visual Arts Festival. Who funded this? Our very own TDC, spending council tax payer's money.
I am sorry but I think it is utterly unacceptable for TDC funding to have been spent on this disgraceful montage. Is TDC utterly insensitive to local businesses and Margatonians who despair at the state Margate has been reduced to.? It would appear so. Who in their right mind at TDC, allowed money to be spent on a 'montage' depicting Margate as a rubbish dump?
I hope that incompetence, arrogance and insensitivity are not integral to TDC under its 'Leader's' direction as these traits perhaps reflect his leadership style? At least he can complain to his friends when he next drinks in The Lanthorne that the "'Those f***ing peasants in Margate don't appreciate bleeding art!"
Having moved towards Broadstairs, I show for your appreciation a photo sent to me of a wildlife hedge in spring glory in Culmers land 'park'. You might just notice that another TDC nonsense is evident with the fence on the wrong side of the hedge?
Who is the real vandal in Thanet?
I have just read IOTG and the 'Leader's View' and 'Our Leader's' explaination of the TDC funded 'montage' is quite extraordinary. Here it is:
" Well it was there to shock and make seaside visitors remember that the environment we enjoy is under threat from debris such as plastic bags. This is something we all need to remember when enjoying a trip to the beach and countryside ..........." ( read the IOTG for the rest if you can be bothered).
Is that his own interpretation of a piece of 'modern contemporary art' or is he just spewing out the nonsense that TDC were fed to pay for it? If it is his own interpretation of a montage showing Margate as a rubbish tip, then no wonder the arty-farty crowd get all the support and financial help they do. We in the meantime, discover that we are saddled with an 'Emperor' who really does believe he is wearing a fabulous suit of New Clothes'!
