Lewes under threat from cockneys and chavs

Finding somewhere for a quiet drink in the town is becoming more difficult. Having bought my poppy, the town must have more poppy sellers than anywhere else, and having avoided a big issue seller, a penny whistler and accordian player, and the chavs outside boots, i went in search of my quiet drink.In my view 2 groups are taking over certain pubs.1---Cockneys--gor blimey accented, laugh at their own jokes, normal conversation isnt known to them, they insist on sharing their thoughts with everybody in the whole pub. I feel sorry with the bar staff who have to engage in banter with them, as their cockney behaviour becomes even louder and boring as they become even more pi**ED . Despite this they think they are a cut above, believing Lewes traditions old fashioned, and they are enlightened liberals. These liberals having left london when their areas population became too tinted for them. The yanks call this white flight. 2---chavs Baseball capped, cheap bling, burberry, he always insists on bringing his small child and dog usually of the rotweiller variety into the pub with him. The child is usually called rogan or dexter and his bird "wiv" him is attired in track suit, the top not meeting up with the bottoms there by exposing flesh round the navel region. Wearing bisto style fake tan and hero worhipping posh spice as the height of sophistication.Always on her mobile, so P***ED she cant walk in a straight line and bangs into other customers and tables and chairs.

Judging by this the Lewes Liberation Front could well become a reality. We'll amend the manifesto to include chavs, students and all other low life. Cleanse our town, long live the revolution.

I agree with you Bigot, finding a pub that isn't infested with the two aforementioned tribes is becoming more difficult as time goes by. Mind you, spending a night in a pub with more than three members of Lewes hockey club can be extremely tiresome.

Try Bridgeview social club then. No Cockneys, no chavs, cheaper beer than pubs, no one falling about drunk (except me), quiz nights, live entertainment and a place for a good chat to put the world to rights. Its worth a try, what is there to lose?

What exactly is a chav?

Janet, a chav is a member of Britains peasant under class. Friends, i cant stand left wing intellectuals either! The type that will turn up next saturday at the town hall to see Germaine Greer, well known ball breaker and female eunach! 15 per ticket. Germaine and Rolf Harris, Australia has a lot to answer for!

try the potting shed aka the gardeners there are never any chavs in there as it is a real ale pub and not a pint of white lightning in sight!

Rif Raf free pubs include the Lewes arms, the John Harvey, even if the tables and bar stools are too high, and im 5ft 10. The brewers arms amongst others. " Windy " Gale is complaining in the Sussex Express about the bonfire celebrations and is worried he will be subjected to a "fatwah." Complaining about bonfire in Lewes, is like complaining about water in Venice, what do they expect? Somebody with an axe to grind is far more likely to write a letter to the paper, than somebody who has enjoyed themselves, thereby giving in the local letters page an unrepresentative view of the event.
