Bob Geldof says Margate is ugly! Apparantly he prefers Deal, Smarden and Faversham. The Thanet blogoshpere is on fire and it's hit the national press. The irony is that the offending comments were in an article entitled 'Bob's Love of Kent' in the Kent County Council freebie mouthpiece 'Around Kent'. Bob's company Ten Alps has the contract to make the £1.6m Kent TV.
Perhaps Bob has been misquoted and he meant plans to erect the Shell Lady in the historic old town. Or perhaps he just doesn't like spectacular sunsets.
