    Anyway good luck to those patriots doing the march, take your umbrellas not nice having Urine thrown over you, have a good day, be safe and never never surrender, and thank you ! I am a Brighton resident and it makes a refresing change to have pariots in our City
    Oh so you're a Brighton resident are you.

    So you don't mind your council tax going up in order to pay for policing the drunken violent weekend MfE organises each and every year?

    You're quite happy for your 'mates' to boast about how much they are costing this city?

    You're quite happy that the money being spent on policing a drunken bunch of violent idiots could have been spent on the community ...on a kid's project ...on our hospital ...on outreach services? You know things that actually HELP the people of this city.

    Perhaps you and Steve Sands (the guy who has near enough been arrested at every single demo on violent and homophobic hate crimes) and the other three MfE supporters in this city should indeed pay bill for this event each and every year seeing as you are the one's wanting the MfE here so badly!
    No I don't mind at all !! Because there is also a police bill for Pride and for the London to Brighton bike ride and all the other socially acceptable events that are held in Brighton. You cannot have it all your own way !! With regards to arrests made I think you will find that mostly the arrest are of the UAF / Antifa
    You really don't know much about these events to which you speak of do you?

    Firstly Pride started as a protest for equal rights (to which we still don't have) and has indeed to this day still continues that protest line. It also raises funds for charities in this city. The violence usually comes in the form of homophobic violence. Those shops that line the route make a fortune on that day. The entire gay scene makes a fortune that day. Brighton Pride brings money into this city.

    Secondly ...London to Brighton bike ride ...not even a protest's a way for many people to achieve something and to raise money for charity. Not one bit of violence ever reported. This event brings money into this city.

    Lastly ...MfE. Not a protest but billed as a 'family event' but yet has nothing planned which you would normally find at a family event (unless you think walking from A to B counts as a family event?) The night before the 'family event' groups right wing supporters go looking for trouble in St James St and in recent years London Road. Then on the actual day of this 'family event' we see adults already drunk and abusive by 10am ...the abuse comes in the form of racist and homophobic. The one's that are violent are the groups of men (am guessing the same ones who go out Saturday night) who roam the side streets looking for trouble. These men have come to Brighton under the MfE banner thus they tar each and every one of you.

    The majority of you stay in places outside of Brighton (wasn't it Worthing last time?) ....the entire 'family event' shuts down business on the seafront ...even Charles St and Bar Revenge shut it doors!!!

    This event costs more then what it gives back all it seems to give back for the past god knows how many years now is nothing but homophobic and racist abuse as well as violence!

    So tell you what ...see if you can opt out of paying for Pride and the London to Brighton bike run ....and the rest of us will opt out of paying for MfE ;)

    P.S. Suggest you take a closer look at the statistics with regards to arrests ;)"

March for England route to be reviewed after Brighton road collapse

The Argus: March for England route to be reviewed after road collapse March for England route to be reviewed after road collapse

Sunday's March for England event may be moved following the collapse of a road, police have confirmed.

The annual nationalist march is due to be held along the A259 King’s Road, Brighton.

Earlier this morning (April 25) part of the road collapsed.

Workmen had been fixing a fire exit at the Fortune of War pub, situated below the road.

The hole is located where nationalists are due to congregate ahead of the march on Sunday.

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said experts were on the scene carrying out an inspection.

She added a decision would be made later today or tomorrow into whether the march should be moved further down the road.
