Local ukip candidate is not looking good right now, after her chief of staff appeared to be doing something suspicious with expenses in a Kent restaurant. Heard this on the radio 4 this morning and obviously our thought was "which restaurant?". It's not actually that local, it's Margate. Janice Atkinson is intending to stand as Folkestone and Hythe candidate in the election, but hopefully she is now scuppered and that will throw ukip's local plans into disarray.
This is my site The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when I first moved to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a regular visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and things, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
