A Serious Proposal

I've been over at Rochester this afternoon, talking to ITV Meridian News about 'Leap year' proposals.

With Valentine's Day approaching fast, this is of course a Leap Year, which give the girls an opportunity to 'pop the question' and propose marriage to the boys. As a result, Meridian think using an aircraft banner is a good idea and wanted to hear about the more unusual jobs of this kind that we've done, such as the one over White Hart Lane, which appeared on BBCs Match of the Day, featuring a bemused former England Manager,'Sven' wondering what it was all about.

Mind you, if the aircraft doesn't work, the young lady in the photograph appears to have other ideas of her own!

I guess she looks like the security for Miss Margate at the next margate carnival.

Is this a bit like "a modest proposal"?

Swift, a man ahead of his times!

"A Modest Proposal, is a satirical pamphlet written and published by Jonathan Swift in 1729. Swift suggests in his essay that the Irish might ease their economic troubles by selling children born into poverty as food for rich gentlemen and ladies."

There are about 6 or 7 people that use this blog although at times it apears like there are more. It is done by using multiple names and number clocking.

I wonder what David Cameron thinks about Mr Gale justifying his chum Mr Conway's behavior and why is Mr Gale supporting a man who has clearly done wrong? ummm!

We can't trust the Conservatives with our money.

What's this got to do with the story it's posted under?

In fact, taking your comment, there are about four or five people like yourself (multiple visits) who consistently "troll".

Unlike some other weblogs in Thanet, you can see the webcounter and it also 'clocks' unique visitors, returning visitors, their IP address,where they came from, what they read, how long they stayed on any page, what comments they left and so on..

Shall I continue?

Political commentators have been "stunned" by the "deafening silence from the Labour benches during Prime Minister's Question time." Enough said!

Straying even further from the thread. The Independent has a good analysis of the MP's expenses issue at:
