  1. Thought I’d get in before “real world”. I often shop after dark and have never experienced any problems either going to or coming back from whichever local supermarket I decide to walk to.

    I strongly dislike the way in which some commentators here, by the use of gross exaggerations, try to make Ramsgate- indeed, the whole of Thanet- seem like a wholly dangerous and dirty area.

    • Of course in a world where we’re meant to celebrate and embrace the neurodiverse and all sorts of differences amongst us, it should surely be extended to the way in which everyone interprets and comments on events around them. As such one person’s exaggeration is anothers honest assessment and so surely has equal validity. Or is acceptance of alternate views a moveable goal?

  2. You are correct,Phyllida.These parasites and vermin are but a very tiny minority of the population,fortunately.

  3. Aldi going up in the world!

    People being mugged for its groceries.

    Harrods eat your heart out.
