Whats with the swearing on the back page, the clarion is addressed to me and my family, i had to try and explain what a DFL c**t is t my 8 year old.
I know i cant protect them for ever, but i feel this piece cr*p is out of place on a Family publication.
I do hope that who ever thought it was funny to put this in print will be spoken to.

I think that's quite funny but then my kids have grown up with that word as part of their staple diet for years....and that was just from their mother.

A full apology has been made. Complaints don't need to be aired here.

This is really not the place to discuss this we have a members forum on the Cliffe Website.

How interesting. When other BS's drop an accidental clanger, who is that jumps down their throats? May I suggest that it is entirely appropriate that all bonfire boys views about this should continue to be aired on this forum

I know we have a place on the Cliffe forum, but i chose to this forum, not all Lewes people have access to the Cliffe forum, and i have not heard an apology.

Are you a bit thick Kendo or do you think that the whole of Lewes is Cliffe? Completely in-appropriate place to put this link

My kids asked what it meant, I told them it was a swear word and they left it at that. They know swear words exist and know not to use them.

They even had a little giggle about it.

NICE. I'm with Kendo. Cliffe claims to be biggest BS in Lewes. Entirely appropriate that it is aired on this forum. Free speech is what it's all about, not hushing up an embarassing incident.

I covered the piano legs. We don't allow c**ting language like "DFL" at HardChard Towers.

A little embarrasing me thinks. I am not a member but have heard about the article from "Disgusted of Cliffe".

Just managed to blag a look at the Cliffe's Clarion and there's no mention of a c**t or even a c*nt as a complete word or even with the asterisks as here. Would agree that there is language that doesn't belong in a family publication, however.

An apology has been sent to the committee and has also been sent out on the circular email that some members get. I expect there will also be one in the next clarion.
This forum is not the place for this sort of complaint and let this be the last of it please.

This forum IS...i repeat IS the place to air such a complaint. To bad Lucy.

Lucy this is the place to air views if you don't like it don't read it. the Clarion went to far, and i guess what, i can and will view my opinions on this forum and others so jog on !

this is a lewes forum and rightly this is the place to air one's complaints.

'This forum is not the place for anyone to talk about anything and let this be the last of it please.' See, Lucy, we can all do that.

This is the Lewes Forum as such Bonfire issues are always discussed. As a Cliffe member & a DFL cheesemonger ( actually down from Newick) I have made a complaint to the committee. They have apologised about the language but not the content. I think it should is an inappropriate place to insult people.

Kendo, your out of order. The Clarion is a private publication for members only. I've got a funny feeling that your no member of the Cliffe, you've stumbled over a copy and thought you would stir things up on here.
No Cliffe member would ever do what you've done. I hope you enjoy Littlehampton on Saturday.

Oh yes they would, Efflic. I'm proud to walk with the Cliffe and not ashamed to be DFL 50 odd years ago. Kendo probly used the Forum because he recognised that the Clarion Ed wrote the sad veses herself. So little point in complaining to her. She should stick to editing and leave the poetry to poets.

Effic nothing is private in bonfire not even in the mighty Cliffe,
not sure why you think a Cliffe member would not air views on this forum or any other ,Cliffe do make mistakes & they need to but this one right , is Kendo Cliffe, Waterloo, or even Southover who cares Kendo has a good point lets not forget that.

Blinking good poem ! But I would say that I have a sense of humour and don't take silly things to seriously.I'm guessing the poet thought it would make people smile and it worked for me can't please everyone hard crowd .

OOH I have started somthing here,
Yes i am a cliffe member and proud of it, i have been involved with bonfire, not just with Cliffe for a long long time, and why the hell would i go to Littlehampton when i am going to Newick.
There is no point on using the Cliffe forum, no one reads it.
Is what is on the back supposed to funny or a sad attempt at poetry
And i still have to explain to my son what THAT word means

Like suggested earlier a simple its a swear word is sufficiant for a 8 year old and move on .
