Dahn to Margate

Chas & Dave: the vaguely menacing cockney duo who sing about their love of the Kentish seaside town. (At least when they were still on speaking terms; according to yesterday's Sun, this is no longer the case.) But they never proposed building a Dubai-style peninsula of islands off the Kent coast as a solution to Britain's housing shortage. This argument was left to me on the TV show Homes Under the Hammer, broadcast on BBC One on Monday 28 November. If anyone has a recording of it, drop me a line as I wouldn't mind a copy. My extravagent suggestion was based on a mixture of audacity and frustration with the South East's housing shortage, and made on camera before the extension of Britain's licensing hours.
