It Came from Outer Space

I was stunned, nay amazed, to read in this week's Thanet Times, the front-page story that ice from a passing aircraft 'may' have smashed the roof of the Councillor Greens in Ramsgate.
It was only last May, that the home of another Labour councillor and 99th most popular Party blogger, Cllr Nottingham of Northwood, was struck by lightning, in what appeared to be an act of divinely-inspired and passing  political comment from the Norse god Thor but for two Labour bloggers  to have their roofs damaged, is remarkable from a probability perspective, even more so, given Ramsgate Mayor, David Green's position on the future development of the airport.



I'm delighted that nobody was injured during the unfortunate incident but whether it was indeed ice that caused a gaping hole in the Green residence is open to speculation, as the expert opinion of the builder, quoted in the newspaper, isn't conclusive evidence. In my own opinion, it's just as likely to have been a small black hole, ball-lightning a photon-torpedo a micro-meteorite or indeed, another Act of God.

The popular proverb does of course claim that 'lightning never strikes twice in the same place' but clearly Ramsgate is an exception in a political sense and I'm now wondering which Labour councillor may be next in line to receive a passing politically-charged salvo from either the Almighty or ET? The Thanet Times account of what may have taken place in the town last week, is previewed in the attached video clip.

In fact, if it hadn't been the front-page story I can't think why anybody might have bought the newspaper in the first place! The next episode may even feature the alien abduction of some unlucky Labour councillor or member of the cabinet, just to keep this local interest story going.

Anyway, here's wishing you all untroubled and clear skies a Very Merry Christmas and A Happy 2010 ahead!

Better than the bolt of lightening to hit the Mayor of Margate!

Oh but of course that's okay. Mayor of Margate kicked out of home by wife; and that's not news! But there again some of us know his ex wife; and the stories she might be willing to tell!

Grow up Moores. Your in with the bad guys, and if that's where your happy to be; then suffer the consequences!

See you at the polls in 2011!!

(NB I've edited out the more offensive and libellous remarks in this comment as you will see. Not much Xmas spirit there and reminiscent of the creature 'Caliban' in Shakespeare's 'Tempest'. - DrM)

Labour's Marko North-hart says he was kidnapped by alien beings!

I started having weird dreams back in 1997. I couldn't sleep at night and became afraid of the electorate. One of the nightmares brought back a memory of a time when Kinock was party leader.

I had a flashback of going into the political wilderness; this was the key to unlocking all the experiences New Labour had brainwashed me into forgeting.

I realised my memory had been altered. I was taken from my bedroom in the middle of the night. A ray of light came through the window and I was beamed up to a transport vessel. The room I was in narrowed towards the ceiling... to be continued..

LOOK OUT FOR PART 2 IN THE NEW YEAR!
