The fact is Lewes is full of inbred yokels who have an average IQ of minus 100. These people have no social skills, no interest in anything remotely interesting, and have never travelled beyond their poxy town. They are basically provincial oiks - the type that give the provinces a bad name. Most of them are on dole too. I would love nothing more than to see whole lot them replaced by DFL's.

I'm confused Kronstein?! You have been to Lewes? If you had you would realise that it is an afluent sub London commmuter belt town.
The majority of the population have a white coller job within the area or London, nearly all the children within the town will go onto a University level education. Many of the population will holiday abroad and certainly will travel beyond the town to socialise usually within cosmopolitan Brighton or the South of England and London.
Before I left to live in the Midlands for work purposes, my family and friends were well travelled. I enjoy an open world view which I owe much to the inclusive lifestyle enjoyed within Lewes.
Lewes itself has a vibrant culture with many interesting events and activities every year culminating in the Bonfire celebrations, an event that the entire town populace spends much time and money across the social spectrum to make a success. Every time I return to Lewes there is always some form of cultural festival or event happening.
As for DFL's well I welcome them, new people who assimilate bring new vibrancy to the town. My parents were actually DFL's in the 70's, but they came to Lewes to raise and family and participated in the life of the town. They are now 30+ years later well regarded civically and all people regard our family as old Lewisians.
Why don't you visit Lewes rather then post idiotic comments...you will find a fascinating, vibrant and welcoming town!

I agree with Kronstein & the post by Dr Strately. I think anyone could be forgiven for mistakng Lewes as the inspiration for the marvellous film, 'The Wicker Man' (1973, starring Edward Woodward). Lewes - a town, it seems, full of stone-age losers and bumpkins, arguing stupidly and pedantically about matters, the answers to which are common sense to anyone with a rounded and intelligent view of the world and its affairs. How many residents of Lewes actually have a passport, or have even visited, for example, the town of Hastings? An extremely small number, no doubt, would be the answer.
Parochialism, interbreeding and just being (let's face it) 'thick'do, indeed, have much to answer for..

Oh dear - the sun seems to have got to a few people and brought the weirdos out.
I can only assume that John Plumefield, Dr Stately and Kronstein have never actually been to Lewes. I'm not sure how a town that is suppoosed to be full of DFLs can be inbred or full of bumpkins?
I agree that not many Lewesians go to Hastings - why would we there's nothing there?!

I'm glad my post has solicited such an impressive response. Maybe Lewes really is different, but EVERY other East Sussex coastal town seems to be full of useless pagan weirdos on the dole. Whilst I realize Lewes is not coastal, I was assumed it was no different judging by the article I read yesterday in the Sunday Times. So if it really is full of DFL's then thats great, it must be an exception to the rule. Your average DFL is worth 10 locals. DFL's bring civilization, culture and education to the inbred provinces.

Thankyou Kronstein, Strately and Plumefield for so clearly demonstrating what prejudice is. Smith's article in the Sunday Times Magazine may have been sincerely written in the belief it would highlight the difficulties minorities still face when moving to small towns; however, his casual trashing of this community (and it is his and his family's community as well, whether he likes it or not) in a national newspaper has rightly left many people very hurt and confused.
As so many others have pointed out, prejudice exists everywhere - whether it's national, local, social or any other area of human existence. A previous post pointed out that promoting a positive understanding of different peoples goes a long way to eliminating prejudice - I'm sure Smith's demand for a celebration of Black Culture in schools was meant in this vein - but I think he really needs to understand his article had a completely opposite effect. To me it came across as contradictory, devisive, inflammatory and entirely prejudiced against almost everybody in this town. In other words a very poor piece of journalism which should have been rejected by a national newspaper.
So, are we all racist? No, of course not. Are we all prejudiced? Yes, in some way or another all of us are. Smith's article demonstrated some of his own prejudices very clearly. His thoughtlessness has been hurtful to me and to my town, but sadly I believe it will be eventually most hurtful to his own family. As for Lewes? Well, it's certainly not Utopia but it's a great place with many great people. We'll continue to enjoy our rich heritage, our beautiful location and above all our diverse and interesting community.
