  1. Ramsgate has been seen to be in the news a lot more lately… No more than an isolated incident. Mental health issues run rife round thanet as an whole….no more than the crimes of the council Tony…R x

  2. All Thanks to Thatcher this is he long term effect of Dole by the Sea. Turned a nice area into the pits. With the help of open door policy.

  3. Ann, i think you will find the Labour party is the one
    championing the open door policy. Corbyn has already said that he will accept all the migrants in Calais and elsewhere.
