I have been shopping in Lewes on two afternoons this week and the litter left
in the precinct has been pretty bad. On both occasions a Robinsons tour coach stopped outside the law courts and its passengers alighted to spend an hour or so around our shops. What visitors much think I don't know, but
the situation seems to have got worse since the College students returned.
Education and a little law enforcement would go down well.

It seems the barbarians are at the gates - or through them - and we all have our hands tied behind our backs. In the old days we were able to do a bit of community policing when we saw something anti-social happen.

Pedant, don't jump to conclusions, and do try not to be offensive. I mean that no-one dares to speak out when they see something happen. Your comment seems to put you among the Barbarians.

So having your hands tied behind your back prevents you from speaking out does it Grunge?

No, it's the well-founded fear of being hit or knifed by some druggie if I do speak out.

And, just to be a total misery, I would like people to keep their feet off the seats in trains and buses. Or is that somehow interfering with their human rights, but not interfering with someone else's human right to expect to keep their clothes clean on public transport?

Be realistic, BB. I'm not just talking about Lewes. How would you like to tackle a group of foul mouthed litterers on a late night train from London, for example?

Er, I have. And they responded in the way I expected them to, which was apologising and shutting up. Most people do.
I do understand your fears, though Grunge, and you just have to go with your instincts whether to challenge yobbish behaviour or not. I have done so on a few occasions and not got into any trouble, but its always a judgement call.
