Sean Keegan- an obituary

When SFP Venture Partners based in Tortola (In the British Virgin Islands) created a UK Ltd Company in 2006 it was done to satisfy the need for a UK entity in negotiations with Thanet District Council. Its ownership (1 share) has always been in the hand of Shaun Patrick Keegan, the father in Law of Colin Hill the money man controlling this land banking scheme.
This company was called SFP Ventures (UK) Ltd (registration number 05666803) and until recently has been the owner of 3 leases but not the Freehold.
On the annual return in 2015 Shaun Keegan was still the owner of the one share however when the return was sent to Companies House on the 7th January 2016 this had changed.
Which means on the 31st December 2015 Shaun Keegan relinquished control of SFP to an entity called Cardy Ramsgate Limited. So who controls Cardy Ramsgate Limited?
So the takeover of SFP was in the favour of Michael Stannard a director of Cardy based in Wincheap, Canterbury and the builders taken on in 2009 by Shaun Keegan. Now according to the TDC Portfolio Holder completion on the new development agreement brokered by the previous administration is imminent and building can commence
So some good news for the eyesore that is Pleasurama, however Thanet's finest (sic) detectives are again alleging that there is a restrictive covenant on the site despite all of their investigating and conspiracy theories no one outside their very small circle can come up with any shred of evidence and even an FOI has produced a zero response
My last blog on this was last July ( link here) so they have failed to find any trace of this phantom piece of paper and so the conspiracy goes on unabated

I won't go into why there is no covenant as it was all detailed in the July 2015 blog however after having a chat with a Councillor who was in the original Cabinet who made the decision to award the build to SFP he did point out the following facts.
1. There is no knowledge of a restrictive Covenant stating the land had to be for leisure*1
2. No Local authority would fetter their actions by creating a restrictive Covenant on land they might sell*2
It seems that the conspiracy theorists are having a field day because something that doesn't exist is subject of various theories of how it has vanished.
Kandy knows full well that Janet Woods had lent me her folder and it was copied and returned. If Janet moved and thrown her papers away so be it, What I had was before FORS even existed as it wasn't a constituted group until November 2013. The paperwork to which she refers is the treasurers stuff (cheque book, final accounts, and a cash box) and nothing to do with any files which have been collected over many months and clearly scanned and posted into the files section of the FB page for anyone to download.
The paperwork given to me with a promise not to pass them to Kandy and her co-cconspirators were returned to David Green before I left Ramsgate. I presume he has shredded them after he lost his seat in the 2015 election.

*1 There is a RC covering the view from Wellington Crescent which any developer's solicitor would discover in a local search
*2 This would preclude Ramsgate Corporation and TDC from creating one.

I will point out one thing for the latecomers into this conspiracy John Davis will have NO personal knowledge of FORS prior to March 2015. He wasn't part of the original steering group created at the beginning of 2013, neither was he at any time part of the constituted group. Original group members were Bayo, Duncan Smithson and myself. Even Kandy didn't put herself down for any of the main jobs for reasons only known to herself. Duncan came off as secretary because he couldn't pass Money Laundering for the bank account. John Davis only wheedled his way in after March 2015. To date no accounts have ever been published not even the interim ones I left with the treasurer's stuff.

Barry James you are often the topic of hate abuse on their facebook page. According to the admins on FORS, personal abuse will not be tolerated unless your name is Barry James. John Davis, Kandy Jones and Clara Gibson are all guilty of it. These are people representing the FORS constituted group. What an example they are setting.

What are your expectations on the outcome of this Matter or problems getting to the truth? Mr James.

Who supports this 'FORS' group? What isthe agenga for these so called Friends of Ramsgate?
Where do they source funding from?
I have watched this bunch of bitter twisted fools and wondered why they seemed to get away with contradicting their own rules with constant spite on their group but it is all making sense now as a follower of your blog and group on Facebook, We Love Ramsgate that they are filled with nothing but nastiness.
Keep up the good work!

I'm still waiting for John Davis and Kandy Jones to find evidence on this mysterious 'Covenant'. They have been banging on about this for over a year on their Facebook page and still nothing. My questions are:
Why do the likes of Nicholas Cooper, Gerhard Mueller, Terry Askew, Janet Wood etc not come forward and say they have seen the Covenant. They were to my knowledge the original founders of the steering group.
Are there any past/present Councillors out there who can enlighten us whether this 'Covenant' ever existed.
This is getting so tedious now. Lets have some answers to shut these bullies up.

Kandy Jones says that there was a copy and it was discovered by the "Elders" silly woman she means Janet and Geoff Woods. So following along from the last anon why was there no mention of this mysterious "Covenant" in the petition submitted to TDC in 2013 asking them not to sell the Freehold of the Pleasurama site.

Having worked for TDC for 25+ years I can state that this mysterious piece of paper is a figment of a deranged mind. Its just an urban myth or wishfull thinking in my opinion

Why don't you tell Davis and Jones to shut the f**k up?

How can -Pleasuram be developed with those rusty concrete pilings?

Either way, the site will need clearing?

Interesting blog Barry. Maybe John Davis and Kandy Jones UKIP mates can come up with some answers. Friends of Ramsgate Seafront has become a UKIP run Facebook page.
