    I think Deal suffers from:

    (a) being "occupied territory", and the chippy mentality of insurgent colonials


    (b) the problem of being overshadowed by a near neighbour of such enormous strategic, historic and iconic importance. Not to mention commercial, as 17% of UK trade goes through the port.

    Deal is basically a glorified ex-mining and fishing village floating in a bubble of misbegotten snobbery and prejudice, with a few decent indepencdent shops and a load of poncey DFL-run and oriented ones that will be gone as soon as the London herd rush off the Next Big Thing.

    Anyway, do excuse me - I am off to visit a chip shop in Lowestoft because The Times listed it as the fourth best in Britain.
