I've not posted here for a while and to be honest probably will not do so again. I do still blog you can read my musings at The Thanet Star where I write about Thanet in general but I've given up with TDC to be honest. Getting beaten up by TDC builders and then harassed by a cop not liking my reporting him to the police complaints commission (over the aforementioned assault's (lack of) investigation), took that spark right out of what should have been a blog about doing basic gardening (because the council can not maintain even a featureless yard). I never got an answer out of the council over any of these issues and all three councillors failed to even stand for this area when the elections came around. That's not to say that they did not stand. (No one much felt like cleaning up the mess the council had made when it was clear that helping earns you a ride in an ambulance).

I have started to talk about green issues again at The Green Moral and I have been talking about geek stuff and my general opinions like how much I loath the council and their workers when they are not up to the job (talking about that hello to the chap who serviced my boiler thanks for the advice that was dead handy). Anyway things of the geeky and opinionated nature are found at the oddly-named Fantastic Site of Lord Matt, Super Geek. Don't forget if you liked this blog come and see The Thanet Star - I think you might love it.

What follows is an archive of neglect that is officialy denied by TDC.

Final Post

This is the final post in this blog.

I'm too angry to write anything balanced and have frankly given up trying to make the yards look good - they are now all overgrown so that you can not even tell we even bothered.

What's the point? TDC refuse to talk to us and all inclination to do anything has long since been lost.

I honestly wonder if the people at TDC actually hate the people that live in the Millmead Estate sometimes. As I say I'm fustrated beyond the will to continue. All I can say is to TDC is "You're Fired!"

I write about other topics at The Thanet Star so maybe I'll see you there.

It's not just Millmead the council can't be bothered to sort out!

Reporting on another story: - it seems that Newington Estate get's it just as bad, if not worse.

Every tenant of the council feel the council don't listen and the police are against them. (I recon it becuase the cops akll take bribes from the drug dealers).

TDC do not feel the need to listen to anyone!

With Sandy Ezekiel being foolish and cllr Green getting forbidden to blog it's no wonder a simple issue like making a yard look nice is beyond the council.

It is now ONE YEAR since the civil servant whom my local councillers passed the buck to was due to have called me.

don't care about "the pooer" people and that is a fact!

Milmead - junk yard of thanet.

There has been an ongoing issue with people dumping whatever crap they want in the streets outside my home.

This post is dedicated to all those vile litter-bugs who think they can abuse the world and get away with it.

I, for one, am sick of my environment being violated.

About a week ago I spoted a truck carrying a wrecked caravan drive down the dead end road that is Denton Way, Kent (CT9 xxx).

The next day I noticed this unsightly wreck parked toward the top of the same road.

I took a photo in order to provide evidence of it having been dumped.

car_regMy wife was the first to spot them. A family out for a little recriational fly tipping. How nice.

By the time I had grabbed the camera they were shuffling off after updating the pile with some fresh new off cuts of green carpet.

I at least got a photo of the leaving the "scene of the crime".

They then backed up the road and arround the corner (where I got the shot of the number plate) and waited for a child to come out of the block before they drove away. (no, I didn't photo the child that sort of thing is not on).

The registration of the car is DG03PZM so if any one knows the owner perhaps they can let thier name be known.

So that's the story of the fly tippers captured "on film" doing the deed.

I also broke the story here (just so you know).

Sandy Ezekiel and the double standard.

Last winter - a time of year when Margate never looks its best - another bloody foreigner with an unpronounceable name came to Margate. He brought a camera crew with him, and he was making a film about a flaky Russian single mother who had exchanged a crumbling tower block in Moscow for an equally crumbling one overlooking Dreamland, the kind of funfair of which nightmares are made. With a sub-plot that involved cyberporn and pre-teen vodka binges, it was clear that he wasn't making a holiday programme.

Which seemed like a gift for Sandy Ezekiel, Thanet's leading Tory, who has never tired of exposing how the Labour-led council has allowed the town to be overrun by refugees. Was not the film's very name, Last Resort, another nail in Margate's coffin? On Tuesday last week, councillor Ezekiel called for the resignation of the tourism chief, Iris Johnston, for allowing this "derogatory film" to be shot.
