Clubbing Scene

with Roger Oldtwat

Thanet's top new venue, Club ECR, has been oversubscribed less than 24 hours after it opened.

Looking fit and relaxed, the exclusive club's reclusive owner Richard Eastcliff, 29, told the Gazunder: 'I'm amazed! Blogger only allows a maximum of 100 invited readers, and we reached that target within hours. Everyone's enjoying the laid back atmosphere and the freedom to indulge in witty banter to their heart's content!'

Mr Eastcliff is now considering opening a chain of Club ECRs right across the south east to cope with demand. 'We have strict membership rules and the bouncers deal with any unwelcome intruders,' he added. 'We've had no trouble with our private members. It's a winning formula!'

look at www.thanetstrife.blogspot.com
is some-one else about to start joining in? Did you reject this new 'biggles' from your club?

Eastcliff Richard said...

Yep - didn't even get within a hundred metres of the front door!

Over on the northside we had two planes (the red and white and a yellow)doing circuits in the late morning at 9 min intervals and one 3 minutes behind the other. Hope the windows were not rattled too much or too often as they passed over your exclusive club.

Come on ECR open up your blog to the public as before, it must be getting boring if everybody is agreeing with everything you say in your "invited only" club.

Are you Bertie Biggles as well, ECR?

Eastcliff Richard said...

No.

Blogs for members only. Victory for Biggles? Communication and debate stifled. No criticism to be seen (no fun either).
What a shame.

Bertie Biggles said...

Please come back into the open, ECR, its hard work trying to keep a temporary blog going until normal service by you lot is resumed.

My mate's mate used to have a breeding pig called Bertie Big Bags because the pig had massive bollocks.

Eastcliff Richard said...

Um, yes Bert.

As for a come back tour, it's fine for journalists who are presumably NUJ members and therefore have legal assistance, and who work for humungous newspaper groups who have libel insurance, to egg anonymous bloggers on for the sake of good copy, but as an anonymous blogger it's a bit more complicated.

I agree it looks like He Who Must Not Be Named's blanket accusations have had the presumably desired effect of killing off criticism, but believe me I have plenty of other good reasons for not being in the public eye at the moment.

Besides, it's given us Thanet Strife, which is a marvellous addition to the Thanet blogosphere if you ask me. Keep up the good work Bertie!

Thanks for your kind words, Dickie, old chap; its bally hard work to keep a blog running! Come back soon, as I need to spend some time fixing the Sopwith when I can move more than just my fingers.
