Could anyone (or Webbo) please explain why my following post was deleted?
"Has anyone here actually bought a Borough programme? If you look in there you will see that a group from KwaZulu Natal will be joining their ranks and putting on a traditional dance performance in town on the afternoon of the 4th. Let's leave the outrage to them shall we?"

Not to mention an interesting piece about the amount the Zulus suffered at the hands of the white man and their fightback.

Could have been Stevie Freeman that deleted it. Seems to do a good job of deleting posts on FB when the going gets tough.
Poor tactic to make threads look unbalanced/one-sided. Naughty naughty!

hi tea in a tea cup - no I didn't even see it and I don't have power to remove anything from here actually - I have however had emails asking if im ok and that they were shocked and worried - so I do wonder what it said? ive heard a photo of me was shared - are you all going to come get me? as it quite clearly stated in a few posts "you know where I live" and "where I work" - im not afraid im just sad for Lewes!

Apologies Stevie I didn't quite realise my post had descended into that! That sort of behaviour is unacceptable. As a Labour member who used to live in Lewes I don't wish to see any of this!

This Forum really is vile.
I saw what was written about and the photo of Stevie yesterday.
What thoroughly nasty cretins.
Hope you're ok Stevie - don't let these idiots stop you. x

Stevie freeman, please educate me on how you think I am a racist by supporting the zulus.
I never have been and never will be a racist! And would like to add am also offended to be seen as one by my support of the zulus. may as well be offended, everyone else is!! We are encouraged as a society to accept one another and great strides have been taken to help combat racism, although I am well aware it still goes on. In all my years in bonfire I have to say I've never heard such outrage regarding racism in fact it's never even crossed anyone's mind until you and that group which nobody ever heard of started spouting such inflammatory rubbish!! Whilst I support your fight against racism, I can't help but feel you are barking up the wrong tree here. If it's 5 minutes of fame you're after I would suggest to you that you take this ridiculous fight else where and use it for a much more worthy cause. What will you do once the 4th has been and gone? Take a few days off and congratulate yourself on causing a devision where there wasn't one. until you came along. It's all very well raising awareness but really???

Hi Si, maybe come see me at the shop and we can have a chat face to face - I find these online discussions don;t often go anywhere constructive - also there have been a whole bunch of people in discussions for past two years with Borough, off the internet about this, just trying to keep it quiet - I didn't start the petition but I applaud whoever did because it was clear nothing was going to change - im just an easy target I guess as people seem to know who I am, where I live and where I work and they are bringing round some pitchforks it seems!

Someone ought to tell the Borough people have been talking with them for two years about this, they must have been mighty deaf with all them rookies going off, they claim the first time of a meeting with diversity lewes was back in the spring of 17 and the issue was not formally raised ,it was raised only formally three or four weeks ago rather a lot less than 2 years ago and thats a fact

Good day to you all

I fundamentally disagree with her on this subject. But anyone who has talked about where she lives or works is pondlife of the lowest order with a bit of knuckle dragging thrown in. How dare you treat someone that way for having the temerity to disagree with you.
