You are correct, something needs to be done! Maybe that something is to support the damn idea for once rather than condemning it like a heard of sheep!
For once, let Lewes be a 'normal' town, and evolve with the times.
If you had your way we'd all still be riding round on horse and carts!!
Cretins!

It never ceases to amaze me how a small number of mainly DFLs (from perhaps 10 or 20 years ago) think that they should control what happens in this town.
They obviously know best.

Can`t see that the site would be big enough. Mac D`s usually have big parking areas. Cannot see how this would work on the Cancer Research site. But as someone has posted, we get these stories on a regular basis.

This will get all the snob's sphincters going. I can just see them looking down their noses at the very thought of a McD's opening in our quaint little town {shivers} perish the thought !!!!
The cancer research place is far too small and not in the right place. The shop behind the volly though would be ideal

Snobbery/DFL (yuk stupid term) has nothing to do with it! The site mentioned is way too small (as is the St Peter and St James site) - there is nowhere in central Lewes big enough unless the new development at the law courts has a vacant plot or Santon decide to stick a unit on their development. Finally parking is an issue - most MCD want the high volume passing traffic - and on top of that there are outlets at Uckfield and Maresfield.

Oh perlease old cynic, do me a favour. If there was ever the chance of McD's coming to Lewes, the local upperclass snobs would drown in their Chateauneuf du pape. There would be uproar among the arty farty types too, you know the ones "oh goodness, not in this town surely"
I think i go to McD's about once every 5 years so i don't give a monkeys about them but i'd love one in Lewes just to shove it up the snob's ar$e$

What you land lubbers need is more antique shops! Not enough in Lewes, by half.

I don't see what would be wrong with having another fast food outlet in Lewes whether it be Maccie D or Burger King. What is the big deal? Behind the Volly was mooted years ago and I always thought that would be a good location. They aren't all drive-throughs, so their own parking isn't necessary.

I'll tell you what will be wrong with it for a small, vocal minority of this town. It will not be in keeping with what we already have, or, in other words, too downmarket for some people.

It's a wind up (paul graham=phil hunt=troll), designed to generate howls of outrage from the DFLs. But hilariously, tha only people it's managed to wind up are local and born and bred who are flailing away at their straw man.

Shame if it is only a wind-up, still there is always hope...

Born and bred - why the massive chip on your shoulder? Do feel inferior in some way that you have to be so angry? There are no properties in Lewes big enough to support a MCD and parking is such a big issues in the town even if there was a venue they would think twice. Still, if it did come to the town center the local rats would be well chuffed :-)

A McD oulet could be put in one of the empty shops near WH Smith. Let's face it, that part of the town wouldn't look any worse than it does now. The smell of their cr*ppy burgers 'I'm lovin it' already

I love the way that some people think that McDonalds - a brand that peaked in the late 1980s - is somehow modern. It's all a bit passe isn't it? Surely GBC or Leon would be far more 2013. Something that doesn't promote obesity in the fattest country in Europe.
Actually now I think about it Tesco have just bought the excellent Giraffe chain - healthy, affordable food for families, plus good burgers - surely that would be better than McDs?

Why do you blame the company for obese people. They have a choice whether to eat the stuff or not. If i go into a Mcdonalds, which is rare, or the Charky or any other fast food eaterie, i want the nastiest, unhealthiest fat laden burger you can get your hands on, not a bowl of fruit or bloody salad.
it's about time people started facing up to their own responsibilities and stopped blaming everyone else.

I second the proposal for Giraffe!
Tesco connection or not it is mightily preferable to McDonalds.
