Total Tosh abart Margate

Non italicised words by Kent Online, words it italics and pics by allatsea:

A Thanet town has been named as one of the hippest places to live in the country (named by a bung taking trash journo working for a freesheet).

The Times newspaper has crowned Margate the fourth coolest town because of attractions such as Turner Contemporary and Dreamland. Both of which can be ‘done’ in a few short hours and then……forgotten.

It also says that Margate had the hottest housing market outside London in 2015 (bollox).


The article said: “Margate, with its Turner Contemporary gallery and revamped amusement park, Dreamland, has started something on the east Kent and East Sussex coast.


“Trendy Londoners are pervading Folkestone, Ramsgate, Rye, Hastings, St Leonards and Hythe, not far from Dungeness and the film-maker Derek Jarman’s former cottage.


“Margate was the hot market outside London in 2015, says Rightmove, with a 24 per cent rise.”


Margate’s housing market has been called the hottest outside London

Top of the list was Finnieston in Glasgow.


About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
