Labour party wants your views on how to improve Brighton and Hove

The Argus: Labour party wants your views on how to improve Brighton and Hove Labour party wants your views on how to improve Brighton and Hove

BRIGHTON and Hove’s Labour group has announced it will give residents the chance to say how a future Labour council could improve the city.

The party has set up an email address for residents to submit their own ideas on improving the city’s services.

Announcing the initiative, leader Warren Morgan said: “Residents of Brighton and Hove know from first-hand experience what works in the city and what doesn’t.”

Residents’ suggestions will help us further develop the policies we would bring forward as a Labour administration if we are elected to run the city in 2015.”

To send your views to the party email ourcity@brightonhovelabour.com

Make more of the town centre a shared space (like New Road) or totally pedestrianised! Introduce a congestion charge for single occupants of motor vehicles. More places to park bicycles...

“Residents of Brighton and Hove know from first-hand experience what works in the city and what doesn’t.”

I know from first hand experience that a Labour admin doesn't work in the city. Can we also replace Warren Morgan with someone that uses his/her energy more constructively and pro-actively, rather than spending all of their time politicking, scheming and opposing good ideas just for the sake of it?

It doesn't really matter about residents opinions because whoever is elected tend not to listen anyway . Just get shot of all of the "Party's" and elect Independents in each and every Ward.

Totally agree - all the time and money wasted on 'party games' when what we really need are councillors that concern themselves with the needs of, and providing cost-effective services for, residents, businesses and visitors within constraints set by government and not to be trying to achieve various ideological goals in isolation.

I follow this already and end up voting for different 'parties' in local, national and European elections.

Having experience of these various parties, all of whom are self interested, at least we're being asked for our views.

Sadly, I don't think it'll make a jot of difference.

Can't be worse than the greens though.

Re examine all the so called road improvements and make necessary changes, re surface key roads, sort out the recycling and road sweeping and graffiti removal service, lower parking charges in winter to encourage out of season trade, particularly weekdays, manage the homeless issue - we now have homeless people begging and drinking outside the taxi rank and the theatre intimidating tourists. Sit and watch this happen. Manage the student population more robustly - the homes and behaviour are disgraceful. Fine them for fly tipping rubbish which happens every week. Come on warren stop being so wishy washy and get to grips with the non contributors. Stop officers opening park gates to any travelling groups. Remove hippy vans and non taxed wagons from our roads.
The town looks a mess warren. I had a mate staying with me last week from Hackney and we walked into town from Coombe road area and he could not believe the state the city was in. He grew up in Liverpool and said it was like being back there in the 1970s.

Yes - get an independent review by traffic planning experts rather than the eco-activist socialist amateurs currently scr*wing up the roads and making congregation and pollution worse. These incompetent idealists who then blame everyone else for their failings and spinning to make it look like they are improving the situation.

Just shut down the 'Sustainable Traffic department' as a green waste of time and money.

Get the planners to look at options for reducing congestion whilst meeting the needs of residents, businesses and visitors instead in a pragmatic, realistic, economic way.

Do that and NOTHING will ever get done. Constant conflict between independents just trying to look after their own form of nimbyism. "Not in my ward!". A sense of collectivism that party politics brings with it ensures that policies do get enacted. Sometimes we may not agree with them but at least we move forwards albeit sometimes slowly.

Yes - especially after all idiotic schemes the greens have introduced? Un-enforceable and unenforced 20mph zones, unused cycle lanes, Lewes Road cycle lanes that are now on their 4th reincarnation, increased congestion, increased pollution - yes the greens are very good at this!

So they got the Seven Dials right - even morons can occasionally get the right answer - in spite of their incompetence!

And why should anyone accept the greens socialist eco-activist views on what the other parties want to do - they arrogantly ignore everything everyone else says.

We need real traffic management experts - not rank imbecile greens who's only answer to everything is an idealistic simplistic anti-car pro-bus pro-bike policy championed by the gurning idiot Davey and don't provide any real solutions.

For instance where is a proper park & ride to encourage visitors to come to Brighton, spend money and support businesses, and to leave their cars behind?

This isn't a Q&A, so knowing a little bit about Warren Morgan, I very much doubt he's doing this out of genuine interest and desire to make things better for people. It's a lot more likely that he's just doing this as a way to find stuff that'll help him talk the talk and tell people exactly what they want to hear so they vote for him. Don't expect any of these suggestions to become reality if his party take the majority, you may think you love him before election day, but he'll just become a new hate figure thereafter. Don't believe me? Type his name in to the search engine above and read some of the letters about him from 6 or 7 years ago. People must have amnesia because the Brighton public were hating on him back then in exactly the same way that they're hating on Jason Kitkat now.

It's a lot more likely that he's just doing this as a way to find stuff that'll help him talk the talk and tell people exactly what they want to hear so they vote for him. Don't expect any of these suggestions to become reality if his party take the majority, you may think you love him before election day, but he'll just become a new hate figure thereafter. Don't believe me? Type his name in to the search engine above and read some of the letters about him from 6 or 7 years ago. People must have amnesia because the Brighton public were hating on him back then in exactly the same way that they're hating on Jason Kitkat now.
And why do we care what the socialist anti-capitalist eco-activist green fanboys who ignore what the residents think as they themselves are so arrogantly sure of what is right for 'Joe Public'?

Now why don't you go back to your own sad little dream world of spinning tales about how wonderful the green party has been over the past 4 years and start thinking of more insults to throw at opposition parties and those voting ratepayers that disagree with your idealistic policies and subsequent incompetent implementation.

You really are a totally wretched little party!

It makes a change from Warren Morgan taking his policies from the Argus comments board.

Socialist? Yeah I guess. Anti-capitalist? Nope. Eco-activist? Not active enough to be able to claim to be one. Not a green party member either if that makes any difference.

Pachallis, you need to come to terms with the fact that we don't live in the 1960s any more and being a paranoid Joseph McCarthy type just comes across as being a bit weird to most people.

If I'm wrong Pachallis, then which of the points above to you believe that Warren will prioritise and get straight to work on for the people? Resurfacing all roads? Independent traffic review? Tackiling the 'Student Problem'? Reducing congestion by means other than reducing the number of cars? Making Brighton Gypsy and homeless proof? As much as I think he's Brighton's most devious politician, I'll at least say that he probably has enough intelligence to have a good belly laugh at 80% of the suggestions above. I'll especially look forward to seeing Warren sitting at a taxi rank all day trying to infiltrate the homeless gangs and personally standing in the way of traveller vans (shopping bags in hand) when they try to enter the town's parks.
