It has come to my attention that TV Choice ( Christine Tongue) has been trying for some time to interview Our Leader and his minder 'Woger' on camera for the documentary that has been worked on for some months in regard to all aspects of the proposed China Gateway at Manston.
It would appear that the 'Deadly Duo' are happy to burst in on other people's PR opportunities in Margate and scatter 'petitions' around the shop so to speak, but are extraordinarily shy about appearing on film for TV Choice! They appear to be happy to have a cosy chat (over a cup of tea, naturally) as long as it's not recorded on film. What are they worried about?
They seemed quite happy to put themselves about in Pegwell Bay Hotel last week, promoting jobs, jobs and more jobs for Thanet to come from China Gateway, whilst trying to rip off poor CGP for a ransom strip and 5 acres at Manston Business Park for a cool £2.25 million and at the same time expressing 'doubts' about Phases 2 and 3 with their partners KCC in EKO LLP.
I have great unease when I see my two Councils (KCC and TDC) playing at property speculation on Manston Business Park whilst spouting hypocritical nonsense about how they are really concerned about regeneration and job creation in Thanet. Aren't these the guys who have allowed the 'key regeneration site' in Margate to become effectively 'land-banked' by Waterbridge and Mr Godden?
They are clearly too ashamed or embarrassed to go on record for TV Choice who might actually ask some pertinent questions of them. Instead, I suppose, we can look forward to another 'Leader's View' in IOTG this week (yawn ), after last week's respite.
