You couldn’t make up …
It could only happen in Thanet …
The story of the Fake Sheikh.
Why did the leader of Thanet Council get a mate to dress up as a rich Arab?
And what was the Fake Sheikh doing in Ramsgate harbour?
And if you thought Thanet Council is behaving badly these days – in 1982 members of the Tory group were trying to punch each other’s lights out!
For the whole story of the Fake Sheikh of Ramsgate see this summer’s issue of Thanet Watch magazine, in newsagents across Thanet now.
