Too many councils - Parish Council, Rural Council, Lewes County Council, Lewes DISTRICT Council, Lewes Council, Lewes TOWN Council, City Council??? (the only worthwhile one in the town it would seem, is the Bonfire Council (or is it Bonfires?)) - how in Gods name are we supposed to know who to complain to when "they" can't get it right in our locale without "them" chucking our complaints in the bin because its gone to the wrong quango? how do we know which one we're ever voting for and what power they've got? keep the public confused - and as for those bl@@dy bollards opposite Seymours - how are we supposed to keep craft fairs and the like going in the Town Hall? - I drove up from the station on Saturday morning and the road was stuffed with estate cars unloading little wicker baskets, homemade cakes, second-hand books, crotcheted baby blankets etc. - these people will soon stop trading if they are charged 5-00 to park for 10 minutes (being observed all the time by two red-coated-skunks to book them when it gets to 11 minutes) a 10 minute walk away and carry their produce through the rain - which Council signed up to those bollards I'd like to know - come on own up

LDC - Falmer stadium etc - Lib Dem
ESCC - Parking scheme (ie highways, bollards etc) - Tory
Hope this helps. Next time there is an election why don't you stand and help sort everything out Lopster!

Well if mystic - who is obviously "in the know" has only not heard of ONE of the list the fact that the rest all exist really does allow me to rest my case - perhaps I will stand - probably as a Green - not really had chance to think that one through - as long as I can promote things local and historic - up the Rooks - up the Seagulls - up Sussex Bonfire and up Harveys (particularly given the tragic news announced today that the great Youngs are to merge with Wells and CLOSE the Ram in Wandsworth - tragic black armband tomorrow)

A hypothetical question.
Just suppose a shopping mall or something else equally large (with no sports facilities) was proposed on the same site as the proposed stadium in Falmer. Taking the same area - would all those in favour of the stadium be equally in favour of this? If so fair enough, however if you think that a shopping mall should not be built then you may understand some of the sentiments against the stadium. For one moment forget football and what it means to you and other supporters.

But we have enough shopping malls, we don't have a stadium

Again some (not me) may think that we don't and feel that there are enough stadia etc. I am not saying you are wrong just presenting an alternative viewpoint.

To avoid expensive new stadium why not wait till the tide goes out at Brighton beach and play there. Lots standing room and sturdy railings to keep spectators off the pitch.

Arched gateway

Lots of back peddling by the Lib Dems in recent days regarding their election ambitions. A case of reality perhaps? more
