Condition of Kent Roads

maybe this is still the KCC repair team
I know that keeping the highways and byways in good repair is an expensive business, but after riding in the car today I know it is one we are spending to little on. Our roads are becoming pothole ridden axle breakers. I find it disgusting that the tax generated by cars and lorries is obviously not being even in a small way spent on road repairs. Times of austerity is all well and good but the time to fix the roof is before it rains. Our roads are in a deteriorating state and getting worse by the Day. Given that winter is coming and frozen surfaces deteriorate we are building up for a storm that will cost a lot more to rectify than had due diligence been observed and proper maintenance been done.
Even local roads and pavements here in Thanet look like weed groves, huge clumps of grass and weeds grow on every street and Avenue. If it carries on our roads will be given green belt status rendering the repairs needed,ie those caused by these unwanted triffids covered by squatters rites legislation. We are going to see a perfect storm caused by local councillor and county council s lack of concern for our roads and pavements. I get around in an electric wheelchair but even now have to choose my routes and given the lack of maintenance going on if things get much worse I won't even be able to take the routes which I now consider as being safe.

Thoughts on Donald Trump

Well last night was the final debate between Trump and Clinton and I must say earlier today I tweeted that I am officially bored by the US election. That's right as a Brit I don't understand the American election process and it has got to the final stages and I am exhausted, no wonder Hillary collapsed a couple of weeks ago. Lets get round to the reason for this post. Donald Trump in my very humble opinion is on an ego trip and he appears to have kidded a lot of people to believe in his egotistical rants. Nothing new there then but I have been sitting here listening to Christine and the Queens  on iMusic. Think about that for a moment iMusic is an Apple creation and you cannot get anymore Apple Pie American than the Apple corporation.  Christine and the Queens  on the other hand is  a manufaction (is there such a word) Héloïse Letissier manufactured the persona of Christine to cope with her own sexuality and here creative desire read an interview with here given to Laura Snapes of the Guardian Newspaper
Héloïse or as I shall hence forth refer to her Christine has created this alter-ego to deal with the world and her sexuality/performer/perceptions. Christine loves her queerness and the fact that her life is a performance and I assume the same to be true of Trump and he wants to be a performer as the most powerful position in the world. The difference the stark reality is that Donald T


rump thinks he is real, he thinks he is Gods gift to the US of A and he will be able like Moses be able to find the promised land. Unfortunately I believe Trumps ideal of a promised land is somewhat removed from reality and unlike Christine who knows she is a made up mixed up star Donald has yet to come to that reality. I could go on and make further comparisons but will leave you to make up your own mind. Héloïse knows Christine is not real but I am not sure if Donald knows that he is not the messiah.

A Brits view on Donald Trump

From where I am here in Britain Donald Trump looks a lot like one of the Snow White Dwarfs, maybe not in stature but in name. Dopey Donald is what I will Christen i him. To us over here in the UK he looks like a loud mouth bully and on top of all of the loud mouth bullying he is more than a little bit of a dope. His grasp on world politics are no better than my ten year old grandsons. In fact when he was on the news today bragging about how Mexico's going to pay my grandson chirps up "but that's not what the Mexican president says" so that makes Trump a liar as well! So Dopey Donald is really no different, he tells lies, he ain't got a clue on foreign affairs and he has the charisma of a rattle snake. And he is running for president?
What amazes us Britsis that people hang on his every word and to top it all they seem to believe him! That is amazing! Now he thinks that not paying taxes is a good thing, it's not like he can't afford to pay tax. I mean he's ain't struggling to bring up the kids whist working two jobs  on minimum wage. No it's okay for the poor to pay taxes. Donald dopey Trump doesn't have to contribute to keep the country safe the poor can pay for the air force. No a billionaire don't have to pay tax for the navy. A billionaire don't have to play the tax game because he is clever just let the poor people who are scrapping a living let the pay taxes for schools and roads for fire services etc etc. Let the pay taxes
