  1. Will Brian White and Doug Brown be there?

    And which are in favour of it?

  2. So lovely parts of Wales can put up with chemical waste incineration plant, used tyre mountains, etc but Ramsgate is so pristinely special it mustn't have industry ?

    The area is getting a good Wetherspoons. With imagination and an end to the Pleasurama nonsense the seafront can re-establish rail access. Let's get busy. You may have to watch that the concrete plant isn't the thin end of the wedge to bringing in chemical and radiation waste for encasing in marble and concrete. Assuming that is not yet on the agenda why not have some enterprise and employment. Where is the rule that Ramsgate has to be a lovely place to live for a privileged few and a giro munching town for the rest ?

  3. Anon 08.26 Ramsgate's and Thanet's regeneration is being built on seaside tourism not dust and polluting industrial facilities. The port could easily become a marina facility that will continue the tourism initiative. Why put years of work at risk.?

  4. Yes that's right 08:26 Wales can have dirty industry if it wants but Ramsgate doesn't need it. Nor we we need a crappy Weatherspoons in the Pavilion. Why does every industry have to be polluting or aimed at employing hundreds of the giro munchers as you describe them?

    If the Port staff can't revive the Port except by this sort of dirty industry then they should be sacked and new staff found. Are we paying the for a closed Port and live animal exports?

  5. Which councillors support this factory?

  6. Yes indeed TransEuropa stopped paying April 2011, so the port staff and management have been leaching off the backs of council tax payers for nearly four years. No wonder the public sector finances are in such a mess. Cllr Everitt says it makes a profit. Laugh out loud. Perhaps if what he calls "profit" was being direct debited from his bank account every month he would have put an end his charade and this shambles years ago.
