L2, please elaborate. As a SE Londoner I can’t see the similarities.

I suppose what local2 means is that the luvviedom typified by Viva Lewes is very much like living in an oh-so-smart London suburb.

As soon as you enter Lewes you are greeted by graffiti, smashed up windows and homeless people everywhere. Gangs is at an all time high. You posh snobs just don’t want to accept that it’s happening around your beloved town.

Like Hyena, i grew up in SE London (Deptford/Lewisham/New Cross) and just got off a brief stint in Whitehawk... Lewes is a little slice of heaven in comparison... this post is outrageous!

Local2 Where are we speaking of? I use train regularly,and see none you you mention.. Enter by car,again,same question! Lewes is a beautiful Town with far less of what you mention than many other Towns. Yes,we have one or two beggars ,again nothing like other Towns. Don’t like it,move on!

As you stated above you grew up in London, you have no idea what Lewes used to be like, get your head out your a*s and take a-look at what’s going on around you, just because it’s “worse” in other towns doesn’t mean nothing is happening here.

Decent citizen are you seriously trying to say there’s no graffiti in Lewes? Have you ever left your house

L2, oh I though you said it was like a suburb of London, which it isn’t. By the way I’m not posh or a snob I just have a grip on reality.

How can you say you have a grip on reality when you’re blatantly refusing to accept what’s happening around you? And you have the audacity to call me deluded?
Its Londoners like you that are ruining this town, you’ve come from a place where crime is high and seem to think it’s acceptable around Lewes, and we all need to get a grip.

I knew we’d get to the DFL rant eventuality.
I must confess though that I spray my tag at every opportunity, routinely break windows and am a member of a gang, I’m also homeless and have substance abuse issues.

Most parts of London are actually nice places to live.
And Local2, the crime in Lewes (80s/90s) used to be a lot worse than it is now. There were well known robbers, thugs, drug dealers and small time criminals running riot.
All good fun, if you had your wits about you.

Lewes is full of pretentious twats now, i've lived here most of my life and dealing with them on a daiy basis is really hard work!

i repeat, get a grip.
a small bunch of anti social kids, and hand full of break-ins does not constitute a "crimewave" worthy of stating i guess is time to move to a safer town" and the other dumb rhetoric you see here and the FB page.
Get a grip, or move out and let more of us nice Londoners move in.

Sussex gammon you complete and utter snob, these breakings and antisocial kids you mention have never been so high around Lewes, its because of attitudes like yours that’s why we are on the verge of a crime wave. Constantly trying to brush it under the carpet and compare other places that are worse. Go back to your 3rd world city you daft c*nt or dont come here with your wannabe superiority.

Any way you slice it you should probably move, make room for more of us 3rd world snobs and our crime wave.

If you can provide statistical evidence that crime has never been so high then blame austerity and write to Maria. Having a pop at Londoners in general is simply ridiculous, and by the way Deptford, New Cross , Lewisham, Woolwich and Plumstead aren’t renowned for the ‘poshness’ of their residents.
