Maybe it's time to ditch the DFL tag. How about welcoming strangers rather than being territorial and fearing change. You might get to something worth hearing from someone who knows what lies beyond the castle walls. For the record, my family go back well over 150 years in Sussex, that I can trace. Celebrate equality and diversity and to hell with the inbred hillbillies who give Lewes a rep that we could well do without.

Ah DFN, the intelligentsia have voiced an opinion. Agreed Canoeman, blow ins can become the biggest patriots. Don't have much time for patriotism either - leads to racial cleansing and wars. I lived in Cornwall where visitors were pretty much hated and called Emmets. People moving to the area had a bit of a hard time too - local builders and traders etc were very happy to take their money though. At risk of sounding like a bleedin hippie, live and let live is the only way forward.

if that is to be them dfl's need to leave their city ways behind when they leave,that means don't push your way through a crowd,say excuse me,please and thank you at the right times,and look after your neighbours instead of isolating your community, and turn up to bloody torch making.That will do for a start.Get used to the fact that shops here don't open on bank holidays because the pace of life used to be slower and rather than make us move at your pace learn to move at ours.

If you really are a new man and you take your 25 year old wife to bed at 9 o'clock you should be used to fireworks by now.

Strange because I generally find the rudest people in town are the gob-sh!te council / benefits families who have been here for years and the stiff-upper-lip old goons who look at anyone without a boater funny

Given that Londoners who move here have not gone for an obvious choice, most have chosen Lewes BECAUSE of Bonfire, Harveys, pace of life, etc. It's people who've moved from Brighton who sometimes have the snobbiest attitudes to Lewes, I find.

Disagree OFB - the worst people in Lewes are the self-employed 'creative' types. Rude, arrogant, but luckily easily recognised.

In London they refer to UFL's. Up from Lewes. Knuckle dragging obsessives who bang on about one night of the year as though it defines the whole town.

you are quite right but at least we don't dress like twunts and drone on about how you just can't buy coffee at midnight here

My family have lived here for generations and i do not have a problem with DFLs, I take it as a complement that they think so much of our town they are prepared to give up the 24 hour coffee shops etc and move here. The only people I hear moaning about bonfire are the idiots who come to Lewes on the 5th and then moan because its too loud and all the smoke, if they dont like it they will stay away next time. Also there are parts of the town that could do with a bit of pollution in the gene pool!!!!!!
