Mr Smith

I just wonder if Mr Smith realised what a wonderful job he was doing for Lewes when he wrote his frankly amazing article for the Sunday Times. Never mind the fact that he is clearly delusional, that's clear from the outset. What I found uplifting was reading all the tolerant, reasoned and liberal comments in your thread. Unless I missed one I don't think there was one comment ( excpet the, I am sure, tongue in cheek suggestion that perhaps Smith might be burnt in effegy this November ) that shows any intolerance on the part of the people of Lewes. On the contrary it shows them for the a kind and generous bunch, much as I remember them when I lived there many years ago. Get a life Mr Smith!

There are plenty of journalists living in the town, maybe one could write an article in response.

Of course there is some racism in Lewes, there is racism everywhere. It's lessened over the years but it hasn't vanished completely yet. His article was unfortunately somewhat lacking in rigour and was written by a white man on behalf of black/mixed race /dual heritage people. Not good.

B ugger all this nonsence, life is to be lived and enjoyed, do not waste time on fools with personal hatred, have a good old drink and be merry for tommowr we shal die, but alas we never do, so said that b loody New York woman whose name escapes me, Dorothy Parker. Leave Mr Smith with his anger and be happy you good people of our lovely Town and region. His article lacked TRUTH in our opinion, that was the problem you all have and I understand it. End Off now please
