"So what is Lewes like?"
"Well, it is a bit of a heritage town, stuck in a by-gone age. Culturally very difficult and not a typical slice of the UK".

At least they didn't say it was full of tory racist inbred firestarting loonies who buy a lot of string.

Unfortunately Lewes has more than it’s fair share

I'd suggest that the conversation was between two hedge fund managers deliberating about whether to fund yet another chain restaurant start up in Lewes - do we, don't we?
Any other suggestions?
Loved the cartoon.

Doesn't 'culturally very difficult' mean that there are a lots of people with differing views and beliefs? Traditional white working class to metropolitan elite. Interesting in a place that is not at all culturally diverse ie with a significant proportion of different races. Or have I misinterpreted them?

It's just Orwellian speak. And a USA cartoon which must have a Black American in it. Now over here that black lady would be married to the white lady and have a prosthetic leg.

Most people I come across think Lewes is full of hippies, Guardian readers and organic twine shops. On here though it's thick racists and posh DFLs in barbour jackets and 4x4s. It can't be both surely?

I can't understand, dears, why there is lately so much criticism of string and yogurt products on this Forum. Clifford can vouch for the quality of my products. Full catalogue on application.

I think the days of hippies and organic twine are nearly over.
I think it's more Boden-clad yummie mummies with 4x4 pushchairs these days.
Still plenty of Guardian readers though. The man in my local paper shop reckons he sells more Guardians than all the other papers put together. Guardian writers too.
I saw that Nick Davies in the waiting room at the doctor's once.

Wouldn't our (quite lovely) black female mayor would suggest Lewes certainly isn't "stuck in a byegone age and culturally difficicult"?

Would you have prefaced ‘quiet lovely ‘ if the mayor was white?
What are you scared of ? Mentioning she’s black?
