I will not be going back to the Canterbury Bell

I thought I would be writing a glowing review of the Canterbury Bell, but sadly not.

A friend of mine wanted to try the Canterbury Bell which is that new venue that has opened up opposite Westwood Cross. I wish we had gone somewhere else.

From the outside it looks fantastic. Inside it looks great too. The food was another story.

We had to wait an age to even get noticed at the bar which was not that busy fortunately we were seated fairly promptly but things sort of went down hill after that.

Canterbury Bell's main thing is the chicken rotisserie and so I figured that I would order that. The dessert was nice enough but the chicken was dry, burned on the outside and pink in the middle. When I was asked how my meal was I said that I was unhappy. No comment on the decidedly undercooked insides and a passing excuse about the chicken being one of the ones that was in there too long.

For the price I expected much more.

I was left hoping that they check that the food had reached the minimum safe temperature as pink chicken is often a sign that it is undercooked.

By the time we were finishing a fairly average latte I was glad we were seated by the toilets. Judging by the state of the gents I was not the only one to end up with a bad tummy.

I do not plan to return any time soon.

UKIP Expels local deputy leader

Ex Tory and deputy leader of the Thanet UKIP group, Rozanne Duncan, has been expelled from the party for comments made on an unbroadcast TV program.

Another blow to UKIPs hopes, perhaps, as the December ICM poll for the Guardian showed UKIP slipping to joint fourth place after the Lib Dems gain 3 points.

Rozanne Duncan was forced out of UKIP "without hesitation" for bringing the party into disrepute.

Given all the crazy stuff that UKIP have defended their members spouting what on earth could Rozanne Duncan have said to be kicked out?

However we can only guess, at this time, as to what on earth she might have said to get herself removed as the comments have not been published and the TV program has not gone to air.

However given that this was the woman who tried to convince me that it was not seagulls ripping open rubbish bags but East Europeans the mind boggles as to what she might have said.

According to Thanet Council's website she was one of only three UKIP members of the council. I guess they are down to two now.

I suppose Kent's Laziest Tory (now UKIP) Councillor Chris Wells can be deputy leader if he wants. Mind you given how Well never did know what his Conservative party mates were saying suggesting that their estimates were spurious and invented (because he thought I had come up with them) perhaps it will only be a matter of time before Chris Wells joins Rozanne Duncan in looking for another party.

Are we seeing the end of UKIP in Thanet? (Probably not quite yet).
