Caroline Lucas set to see if Brighton currency idea is sound as a pound

The Argus: Caroline Lucas set to see if Brighton currency idea is sound as a pound Caroline Lucas set to see if Brighton currency idea is sound as a pound

Caroline Lucas is to set up a working group to investigate the feasibility of giving Brighton and Hove its own currency.

The Brighton Pavilion MP met with business leaders yesterday to discuss plans for a Brighton pound.

Representatives from Wired Sussex, Brighton and Hove Economic Partnership and the Tourism Alliance heard Tony Greenham of the New Economics Foundation outline the possible benefits of the scheme.

Mr Greenham said the complementary currency would be purchased with sterling at a one to one exchange rate. The sterling received would be held by the East Sussex Credit Union, a licensed deposit taker with assets of more than £1.3 million.

Once converted the currency could not be converted back into sterling or any other currency. It is not expected that national chains would take part in the scheme.

Dr Lucas said: “It could work in a similar way to the new Bristol pound, which involves an electronic payment system and strong participation by the local credit union and the council.

“Other proposals could include ‘time banking’, an initiative which promotes social inclusion by enabling people to ‘trade’ their time rather than their money so someone who does an hour’s painting and decorating, for example, can use the credits earned to buy an hour’s gardening from someone else.

“There’ll now be much more consultation and discussion, with a small working group looking into how best to take the process forward.”

Claire Ottewell, the chairman of the city’s tourism alliance, said a possible stumbling block for her members is that most of them belong to multiple chains.

She said: “The jury is out on the idea. I will askmymembers if they want to take it further.”

Brighton and Hove City Council leader Jason Kitcat said that a complementary currency scheme could give businesses access to finance through the East Sussex Credit Union.

He said: “I think the idea has potential. Whether it is as a business- to-business currency or for shoppers needs to be looked at. If it can work anywhere it can work here because there is such a strong sense of place and we have the technological expertise to make it happen.”

A local currency will mean more her beloved travelers and squatters can steal from normal hard working people.

I see the negative loudmouths are getting agitated already. One even admits above that they know nothing about local economies. So what are you doing commenting on a story about the local economy, you blithering idiot?

Regional currencies are designed to stimulate local economies, and have done. It's a good idea. If you want to have a hissy fit at the Greens, this isn't the place to do it.

Now bore off down to Stanmer Park and uproot some dandelions or something.

Is such a scheme really top priority for the people of B&H when so many are out of work or finding it difficult to make ends meet.

Of course, in the case of Lucas, it's a case of how much public money can I skim from the trough while I'm a sitting MP.

Did the Lewes pound provide a positive stimulus to the Lewes economy? Is it still going? What lessons cn be learned to make a Brighton pound successful? Does the Bristol scheme working or are there other working examples? I would like to know, perhaps the Argus could do some investigative journalism on what could be a significant economic evelopment.

I can see that if you shop at local traders and sufficient numbers of local businesses take this up then there could be a significant economic boost and a benefit of keeping money in the community. Those that only shop and trade with corporations and multinationals do not seem to be the people who this scheme is initially aimed at.

It is easy to take a pop at this as it is an example of lateral thinking and change to the othordox, which frightens some people as demonstrated above.

The Lewes pound people were interviewed on the radio a few months back stating that it had little benefit and actually a PR campaign promoting the businesses in offer would have been more successful.
However, the increase in parking charges in the city has gained national coverage and been a PR disaster for the city particularly as our local radio stations are advertising rail trips into London at a price cheaper than a day bus ticket.

Au contraire. Globalisation has been a fantastic success for developing countries with plentiful supplies of cheap labour. It is the developed West that has suffered with its increasing advances as it is increasingly unable to compete with the lower costs of production.
This scheme is nonsense. As with any form of currency it relies on people accepting it and no-one who is visiting the city is going to accept Brighton pounds as change from sterling as they will not be able to spend it when they return to their own town. Likewise big businesses will not acept it and have their hands tied as to where they can utilise it. Neither will workers accept it in their pay packets and have their spending choices restricted. So we will be left with a few hippie traders in the North Laines using it between each other as they do currently.

Kirby and Weatherly would not propose such nonsense. Its another example of the Greens fiddling whilst Rome burns. They are getting close to finalising their ten commandments for how we should live our lives. Let's see what have we had so far...
1. Thou shalt not eat meet on Monday.
2. Thou shall not play the National lottery for tis bad for the working class who cannot be trusted to spend their money responsibly.
3. Thou shalt not burn yuletide logs at the time formally known as Christmas.
4. Thou shalt not refer to each other as Mr or Mrs for thou art gender neutral and it is an abomination to two citizens and the Lord Phelim.
5. Thou shalt not use thy car unless thou is rich and can afford to park it.
6. Thou shalt not attend Farmer's Markets for they are the crucibles of speciesism a discrimination akin to racism and homophobia (this commandment to be phased in by 2016).
7. Thou shalt not use money save for the Brighton Pound and otherwise return to the barter system for Caroline delights in clean exchanges amongst the self-rightous.
8. Thou shalt ride thy bike the wrong way down one-way streets for the laws of the road do not apply to thou and Jason shall rise up and apply his laws to his people and smite the petrolheads.

Two more to go. Or have I missed anything?

Are there schemes that work? If the answer is yes, then can they be applied to B&H successfully? If yes then we should explore doing so. If no is the answer to the above then we should not proceed. That is the grown up thing to do.

Kirby and Weatherly would not propose such nonsense. Its another example of the Greens fiddling whilst Rome burns.

Thou shalt not burn yuletide logs at the time formally known as Christmas. 4.

Thou shalt not use thy car unless thou is rich and can afford to park it. 6.

Thou shalt not use money save for the Brighton Pound and otherwise return to the barter system for Caroline delights in clean exchanges amongst the self-rightous. 8. Thou shalt ride thy bike the wrong way down one-way streets for the laws of the road do not apply to thou and Jason shall rise up and apply his laws to his people and smite the petrolheads.

Any money this costs would be better spent on PR and discounting. HMRC won't take the Brighton ££, utilities won't take it, most people won't want it as it restricts their ability to spend where they want to. Any chain stores won't take it. Shops won't want to see their existing customer base go from sterling to the BP as there is nowhere for businesses to spend it. Sterling margins will erode etc. etc. The biggest lose for any business is that people go wholesale for the BP. The receiving business will go bust as the article says there is no way to convert BP's back to sterling.

Commercial organisations offer barter services that haven't worked to any degree here in the UK. The issue is that people want to buy but not sell the artificial trade ££.

6. Thou shalt not attend Farmer's Markets for they are the crucibles of speciesism a discrimination akin to racism and homophobia (this commandment to be phased in by 2016).
7. Thou shalt not use money save for the Brighton Pound and otherwise return to the barter system for Caroline delights in clean exchanges amongst the self-rightous.
8. Thou shalt ride thy bike the wrong way down one-way streets for the laws of the road do not apply to thou and Jason shall rise up and apply his laws to his people and smite the petrolheads.

Two more to go. Or have I missed anything?
Yawn, yawn.

How laughable that you and others seek to misrepresent a scheme that could aid local Brighton and Hove businesses. I also note how few of the nagative posters say a peep about the forthcoming £50 million of cuts over the next two years forced upon the council by the Tories. What have your Weatherley and Kirby done to defend the council's budget...deafening silence. It seems to me that many of you actually want to do down the city.

I also note how few of the nagative posters say a peep about the forthcoming £50 million of cuts over the next two years forced upon the council by the Tories. What have your Weatherley and Kirby done to defend the council's budget...deafening silence. It seems to me that many of you actually want to do down the city. HJarrs

Are there schemes that work? If the answer is yes, then can they be applied to B&H successfully? If yes then we should explore doing so. If no is the answer to the above then we should not proceed. That is the grown up thing to do.

Your comments make those made by sbiscorrupt seem well thought through and relevant. You would do well to stop posting until you improve your critical thinking and problem solving skills.and can produce even the most basic argument. To be frank your comments are at best ridiculous.
Hmmm... so you are saying that if there are schemes that work to provide a benefit for local people and businesses we shouldn't introduce them? Is that correct?
Hjarrs - For clarity, your assertion was completely incorrect and highlights the weakness in your ability to use two basic skills as mentioned.

Your comments consistently portray you as the green parties 'village idiot' of this site and you should consider either stopping posting, or throttling your urge to spout nonsense. If you don't believe the scale of your problem then read a few of your posts.
What an absolute joke. No real argument of any substance so just indulge in (not even very witty) ad hominem attacks.

One of the joys of reading this article is to read the succession of witless missives from the usual dinosaurs, sociopaths and wingnuts at the bottom.
Exactly the sort of ridiculous post we should have expected from you. No views beyond getting something for nothing and the world owes you a living, keen for others to provide for you in exactly the way / shape you want it. I am surprised you even bother to post, or does someone in social services do it for you?
That's the verdict from the Wingnut-in-Chief!

Lets put one urban myth to bed shall we? Landlords of HMO are responsible for ensuring the appropriate Council Tax is paid for their property. It is just that the Council Tax department doesn't hold individual tenants as responsible for paying the bill. The department has arranged it like this to save itself from having to chase all these HMO tenants for their 1/6th (or whatever the divide is) of the overall rate chargeable against a given property.

As for the Brighton pound, I agree that it is a ludicrous suggestion considering we are a (ahem) city by and large dependant on tourism. Local currency is a gimmick that would do little towards ensuring and encouraging local growth.

Thou shalt chop down ash, oak and other trees at Wild Park, and so create a paradise for sheep and the shepherd, having driven out the people with thy fencing and destroyed the habitat of some 90 species, at a cost of £120,000.

(That’s real money by the way, not made-up Brighton pounds).
Labour and Conservative policy is different is it?

If I am not wrong, the change of habitat to calcareous grass land has been progressing for a number of years over several administrations.

How laughable that you and others seek to misrepresent a scheme that could aid local Brighton and Hove businesses. I also note how few of the nagative posters say a peep about the forthcoming £50 million of cuts over the next two years forced upon the council by the Tories. What have your Weatherley and Kirby done to defend the council's budget...deafening silence. It seems to me that many of you actually want to do down the city.
The fact that supposedly such high cuts took place this year and no one I know has noticed any difference in public services makes me wonder how much money must have been wasted over the the years. Thank goodness the council is being forced at last to be careful with our money.

Your comments make those made by sbiscorrupt seem well thought through and relevant. You would do well to stop posting until you improve your critical thinking and problem solving skills.and can produce even the most basic argument. To be frank your comments are at best ridiculous.
Hmmm... so you are saying that if there are schemes that work to provide a benefit for local people and businesses we shouldn't introduce them? Is that correct?
Hjarrs - For clarity, your assertion was completely incorrect and highlights the weakness in your ability to use two basic skills as mentioned.

Your comments consistently portray you as the green parties 'village idiot' of this site and you should consider either stopping posting, or throttling your urge to spout nonsense. If you don't believe the scale of your problem then read a few of your posts.
What an absolute joke. No real argument of any substance so just indulge in (not even very witty) ad hominem attacks.

One of the joys of reading this article is to read the succession of witless missives from the usual dinosaurs, sociopaths and wingnuts at the bottom.
Exactly the sort of ridiculous post we should have expected from you. No views beyond getting something for nothing and the world owes you a living, keen for others to provide for you in exactly the way / shape you want it. I am surprised you even bother to post, or does someone in social services do it for you?
That's the verdict from the Wingnut-in-Chief!
How are your benefits flowing?

Just remember, you are owed a living by people like me who get up at 4am to ensure that we get the job done, that triggers the pay and in turn the tax to be passed to people like you.

If you need more, let me know and I'll consider writing you a personal cheque.

Alternatively you could join society and maybe get some work instead of relying on others!
Ah! The argument lost, the stereotyping begins.

Funny, Andy R was supposed to be a shop steward in other posts, so would clearly have a job. If he is on benefits or has a job is irrelevant to the subject, which is that here is an idea that could benefit the local economy - you continuously do not answer whether you agree with local money if it could be shown to benefit the local economy.

Personally I work and pay a significant amount of tax and need no condescending lessons from you. I owe you nothing. If you don't like getting up at 4am, then get off your lazy backside and get another job!

Two more to go. Or have I missed anything?
7. Thou shall waste millions of pounds by building bicycle lanes that no one uses.
8. Thou shall build ridiculous bicycle parks that no one with a bike worth £30 or over would use (for fear of being nicked).
9. Thou shall have ridiculous facial hair and a name that sounds made up and like a chocolate bar.

It might just be that the council is being better run under a Green adminsistration.

The Tories were useless and Labour, while they made some notable achievements, fritted away an opportunity to transform B&H at a time when money was plentiful.

The council has been very successful recently in levering additional funding for a number of infrastructure schemes, which get the trolls frothing at the mouth.

Amazing how a party called Green "sneaked in" cyclepaths. Nobody could ever have imagined that they would have built them from their manifesto commitments!

It is clear that most of the above will not join in, that is not a problem as there are many that will support a scheme if it can be demonstrated to work, particularly if it supports our local shops and suppliers.
Your comments make those made by sbiscorrupt seem well thought through and relevant. You would do well to stop posting until you improve your critical thinking and problem solving skills.and can produce even the most basic argument. To be frank your comments are at best ridiculous.
Hmmm... so you are saying that if there are schemes that work to provide a benefit for local people and businesses we shouldn't introduce them? Is that correct?
Hjarrs - For clarity, your assertion was completely incorrect and highlights the weakness in your ability to use two basic skills as mentioned.

Your comments consistently portray you as the green parties 'village idiot' of this site and you should consider either stopping posting, or throttling your urge to spout nonsense. If you don't believe the scale of your problem then read a few of your posts.
What an absolute joke. No real argument of any substance so just indulge in (not even very witty) ad hominem attacks.

One of the joys of reading this article is to read the succession of witless missives from the usual dinosaurs, sociopaths and wingnuts at the bottom.
Exactly the sort of ridiculous post we should have expected from you. No views beyond getting something for nothing and the world owes you a living, keen for others to provide for you in exactly the way / shape you want it. I am surprised you even bother to post, or does someone in social services do it for you?
That's the verdict from the Wingnut-in-Chief!
How are your benefits flowing?

Just remember, you are owed a living by people like me who get up at 4am to ensure that we get the job done, that triggers the pay and in turn the tax to be passed to people like you.

If you need more, let me know and I'll consider writing you a personal cheque.

Alternatively you could join society and maybe get some work instead of relying on others!
Ah! The argument lost, the stereotyping begins.

Funny, Andy R was supposed to be a shop steward in other posts, so would clearly have a job. If he is on benefits or has a job is irrelevant to the subject, which is that here is an idea that could benefit the local economy - you continuously do not answer whether you agree with local money if it could be shown to benefit the local economy.

Personally I work and pay a significant amount of tax and need no condescending lessons from you. I owe you nothing. If you don't like getting up at 4am, then get off your lazy backside and get another job!
Always interesting to hear from the green parties very own 'village idiot', especially when she is clearly a tad annoyed at being found out.

In the most basic language I can muster, the Brighton pound is a nonsense, if you had more than a couple of effective brain cells you could work that out for yourself. As you seemingly don't then have a good read of all the comments above, where there are many cues and also some real-life evaluation.

It's never easy for people like you Hjarrs and your view of what significant tax is, is I am sure somewhat short of mine.

Accordingly,whilst you claim what you claim, in reality you are I suspect just another benefit grabber.

Kirby and Weatherly would not propose such nonsense. Its another example of the Greens fiddling whilst Rome burns. They are getting close to finalising their ten commandments for how we should live our lives. Let's see what have we had so far...
1. Thou shalt not eat meet on Monday.
2. Thou shall not play the National lottery for tis bad for the working class who cannot be trusted to spend their money responsibly.
3. Thou shalt not burn yuletide logs at the time formally known as Christmas.
4. Thou shalt not refer to each other as Mr or Mrs for thou art gender neutral and it is an abomination to two citizens and the Lord Phelim.
5. Thou shalt not use thy car unless thou is rich and can afford to park it.
6. Thou shalt not attend Farmer's Markets for they are the crucibles of speciesism a discrimination akin to racism and homophobia (this commandment to be phased in by 2016).
7. Thou shalt not use money save for the Brighton Pound and otherwise return to the barter system for Caroline delights in clean exchanges amongst the self-rightous.
8. Thou shalt ride thy bike the wrong way down one-way streets for the laws of the road do not apply to thou and Jason shall rise up and apply his laws to his people and smite the petrolheads.

Two more to go. Or have I missed anything?
7. Thou shall waste millions of pounds by building bicycle lanes that no one uses.
8. Thou shall build ridiculous bicycle parks that no one with a bike worth £30 or over would use (for fear of being nicked).
9. Thou shall have ridiculous facial hair and a name that sounds made up and like a chocolate bar.
Amazing how a party called Green "sneaked in" cyclepaths. Nobody could ever have imagined that they would have built them from their manifesto commitments!

If you can't get out of your car, then so be it, but let the rest of us have the choice to safely use a healthy and cheap form of transport.
Yep just a shame we spent all that money on cycle lanes for only you as the lanes are empty.

Yawn, yawn.

How laughable that you and others seek to misrepresent a scheme that could aid local Brighton and Hove businesses. I also note how few of the nagative posters say a peep about the forthcoming £50 million of cuts over the next two years forced upon the council by the Tories. What have your Weatherley and Kirby done to defend the council's budget...deafening silence. It seems to me that many of you actually want to do down the city.
The fact that supposedly such high cuts took place this year and no one I know has noticed any difference in public services makes me wonder how much money must have been wasted over the the years. Thank goodness the council is being forced at last to be careful with our money.
It might just be that the council is being better run under a Green adminsistration.

The Tories were useless and Labour, while they made some notable achievements, fritted away an opportunity to transform B&H at a time when money was plentiful.

The council has been very successful recently in levering additional funding for a number of infrastructure schemes, which get the trolls frothing at the mouth.
Do you reckon. Why do they keep on trying to get through massive council tax rises if they are so responsible.

The Green Party is a disgrace. It cost £3.50 to park for 5 minutes to collect something from a HiFi shop today in London Road. What do you think I did - had lunch there and looked in other shops or collected my stuff and drove off. If I need to go back I will get somebody to wait in the car so I don't need to pay for parking. Not everyone is rich like Caroline Lucas and the Green people. Shops no doubt in this area and the North Lanes and Brighton generally have seen a drop in trade. Initially they can cut their costs by reducing people's hours or not replacing staff. After a while they can't carry on and the city, tourists and residents will lose out. Get rid of the Greens please and quickly.

I can see that if you shop at local traders and sufficient numbers of local businesses take this up then there could be a significant economic boost and a benefit of keeping money in the community. Those that only shop and trade with corporations and multinationals do not seem to be the people who this scheme is initially aimed at.

It is easy to take a pop at this as it is an example of lateral thinking and change to the othordox, which frightens some people as demonstrated above.
The Lewes pound did stimulate local spending and does still exist. However, the Lewes pound has become a collector's item amongst the red hand defenders of King Willy's men due to the Lewes connection to anti popery.
It is quite probable that a Brighton pound would attract interest from outside the town for some negative reasons.

Hmmm... so you are saying that if there are schemes that work to provide a benefit for local people and businesses we shouldn't introduce them? Is that correct?
Hjarrs - For clarity, your assertion was completely incorrect and highlights the weakness in your ability to use two basic skills as mentioned.

Your comments consistently portray you as the green parties 'village idiot' of this site and you should consider either stopping posting, or throttling your urge to spout nonsense. If you don't believe the scale of your problem then read a few of your posts.
What an absolute joke. No real argument of any substance so just indulge in (not even very witty) ad hominem attacks.

One of the joys of reading this article is to read the succession of witless missives from the usual dinosaurs, sociopaths and wingnuts at the bottom.
Exactly the sort of ridiculous post we should have expected from you. No views beyond getting something for nothing and the world owes you a living, keen for others to provide for you in exactly the way / shape you want it. I am surprised you even bother to post, or does someone in social services do it for you?
That's the verdict from the Wingnut-in-Chief!
How are your benefits flowing?

Just remember, you are owed a living by people like me who get up at 4am to ensure that we get the job done, that triggers the pay and in turn the tax to be passed to people like you.

If you need more, let me know and I'll consider writing you a personal cheque.

Alternatively you could join society and maybe get some work instead of relying on others!
Well....that'll have lots of people scurrying back to the drawing board rethinking who they thought I was.....

You really are quite dim aren't you?

Had this been Kirby or Weatherley then there would not been a peep. Is it an organised campaign I wonder?

Are there schemes that work? If the answer is yes, then can they be applied to B&H successfully? If yes then we should explore doing so. If no is the answer to the above then we should not proceed. That is the grown up thing to do.

Seems there are far too many problems within local housing, business, tourism, jobs, or lack of them to deal with so lets spend tax payers money, without consultation, on a scheme that we can highlight to take the heat off the other worrying issues. Ms Lucas and her followers seem out of touch with the real issues that matter to real people. Shouldn't she be working on issues that real people care about instead.

Before rubbishing the idea, look at the info on the Bristol Pound which apparently is doing rather well and helping local businesses . I am not saying that this is automatically a good or a bad idea, but just consider it before dismissing it.

Are there schemes that work? If the answer is yes, then can they be applied to B&H successfully? If yes then we should explore doing so. If no is the answer to the above then we should not proceed. That is the grown up thing to do.

It is clear that most of the above will not join in, that is not a problem as there are many that will support a scheme if it can be demonstrated to work, particularly if it supports our local shops and suppliers.
Kirby and Weatherly would not propose such nonsense. Its another example of the Greens fiddling whilst Rome burns. They are getting close to finalising their ten commandments for how we should live our lives. Let's see what have we had so far...
1. Thou shalt not eat meet on Monday.
2. Thou shall not play the National lottery for tis bad for the working class who cannot be trusted to spend their money responsibly.
3. Thou shalt not burn yuletide logs at the time formally known as Christmas.
4. Thou shalt not refer to each other as Mr or Mrs for thou art gender neutral and it is an abomination to two citizens and the Lord Phelim.
5. Thou shalt not use thy car unless thou is rich and can afford to park it.
6. Thou shalt not attend Farmer's Markets for they are the crucibles of speciesism a discrimination akin to racism and homophobia (this commandment to be phased in by 2016).
7. Thou shalt not use money save for the Brighton Pound and otherwise return to the barter system for Caroline delights in clean exchanges amongst the self-rightous.
8. Thou shalt ride thy bike the wrong way down one-way streets for the laws of the road do not apply to thou and Jason shall rise up and apply his laws to his people and smite the petrolheads.

Two more to go. Or have I missed anything?
Yes, I think so:-


Thou shalt chop down ash, oak and other trees at Wild Park, and so create a paradise for sheep and the shepherd, having driven out the people with thy fencing and destroyed the habitat of some 90 species, at a cost of £120,000.

(That’s real money by the way, not made-up Brighton pounds).
Labour and Conservative policy is different is it?

If I am not wrong, the change of habitat to calcareous grass land has been progressing for a number of years over several administrations.
I'm afraid you're wrong - it's not calcareous chalk grassland that's there, but woodland. Ask the Forestry Commission.That's why the Council had to replant trees in Stanmer Park to make up for those they'd cut down without obtaining permission.

Also, it's worth pointing out that the landscape there has been managed for a number of years, rather than being wiped out on a whim, as is now happening.

As the party in power, the Greens are overseeing the eradication of habitat where their own council survey discovered more than 90 new species previously unrecorded in the area.

This clearance will allow an ever-expanding portion of the park to be fenced off so it can be grazed by sheep, with the administration taking funding that was really intended for farmers as a consequence.

This means that money that would have gone to helping conservation of nature elsewhere has therefore been diverted to destroying much-loved green space in a public park on the urban fringe.

Please do explain how felling trees to make money in this way fits in with Green Party philosophy? Perhaps our MP would like to comment? Surely it's basically the same as clearing the Amazon rainforest for grazing - except the Greens obviously prefer sheep to cattle?

I am amazed that the national press who seem to pick up on most daft green policies haven't investigated the outrageous amount of money that is spent on sheep here and the way the trees are being destoyed, especially now there is the ash disease

Your comments make those made by sbiscorrupt seem well thought through and relevant. You would do well to stop posting until you improve your critical thinking and problem solving skills.and can produce even the most basic argument. To be frank your comments are at best ridiculous.
Hmmm... so you are saying that if there are schemes that work to provide a benefit for local people and businesses we shouldn't introduce them? Is that correct?
Hjarrs - For clarity, your assertion was completely incorrect and highlights the weakness in your ability to use two basic skills as mentioned. Your comments consistently portray you as the green parties 'village idiot' of this site and you should consider either stopping posting, or throttling your urge to spout nonsense. If you don't believe the scale of your problem then read a few of your posts.
What an absolute joke. No real argument of any substance so just indulge in (not even very witty) ad hominem attacks. One of the joys of reading this article is to read the succession of witless missives from the usual dinosaurs, sociopaths and wingnuts at the bottom.
Exactly the sort of ridiculous post we should have expected from you. No views beyond getting something for nothing and the world owes you a living, keen for others to provide for you in exactly the way / shape you want it. I am surprised you even bother to post, or does someone in social services do it for you?
That's the verdict from the Wingnut-in-Chief!
How are your benefits flowing? Just remember, you are owed a living by people like me who get up at 4am to ensure that we get the job done, that triggers the pay and in turn the tax to be passed to people like you. If you need more, let me know and I'll consider writing you a personal cheque. Alternatively you could join society and maybe get some work instead of relying on others!
Well....that'll have lots of people scurrying back to the drawing board rethinking who they thought I was..... You really are quite dim aren't you?
In comparison to you, I suspect not. As to people scurrying back to drawing boards then recent publicity on the effectiveness of job centre plus suggested a fairly low energy response to benefit claimants, so make your own mind up and in the interim please do continue enlightening us as to why anyone may give two hoots as to who you are and what you do?
He's a union man. He supported the Labour candidate in the recent elections and lied about being told no rocks were thrown at Mike Wetherley. He's a nasty piece of work.
Hilarious...utterly hilarious....

It's almost Pavlovian how you can always be relied upon to come trolling into a discussion. I could almost set my watch by it.

Any abuse from you can of course only be treated as high praise.

I suppose that, for as long as you are here, your own planet is getting a rest at least.
Yes and as always we can rely on you to not actually confirm nor deny any of the less savoury facts made about you.

You never did say what you were doing at the university the day Mike Wetherley got attacked.

Your comments make those made by sbiscorrupt seem well thought through and relevant. You would do well to stop posting until you improve your critical thinking and problem solving skills.and can produce even the most basic argument. To be frank your comments are at best ridiculous.
Hmmm... so you are saying that if there are schemes that work to provide a benefit for local people and businesses we shouldn't introduce them? Is that correct?
Hjarrs - For clarity, your assertion was completely incorrect and highlights the weakness in your ability to use two basic skills as mentioned. Your comments consistently portray you as the green parties 'village idiot' of this site and you should consider either stopping posting, or throttling your urge to spout nonsense. If you don't believe the scale of your problem then read a few of your posts.
What an absolute joke. No real argument of any substance so just indulge in (not even very witty) ad hominem attacks. One of the joys of reading this article is to read the succession of witless missives from the usual dinosaurs, sociopaths and wingnuts at the bottom.
Exactly the sort of ridiculous post we should have expected from you. No views beyond getting something for nothing and the world owes you a living, keen for others to provide for you in exactly the way / shape you want it. I am surprised you even bother to post, or does someone in social services do it for you?
That's the verdict from the Wingnut-in-Chief!
How are your benefits flowing? Just remember, you are owed a living by people like me who get up at 4am to ensure that we get the job done, that triggers the pay and in turn the tax to be passed to people like you. If you need more, let me know and I'll consider writing you a personal cheque. Alternatively you could join society and maybe get some work instead of relying on others!
Well....that'll have lots of people scurrying back to the drawing board rethinking who they thought I was..... You really are quite dim aren't you?
In comparison to you, I suspect not. As to people scurrying back to drawing boards then recent publicity on the effectiveness of job centre plus suggested a fairly low energy response to benefit claimants, so make your own mind up and in the interim please do continue enlightening us as to why anyone may give two hoots as to who you are and what you do?
He's a union man. He supported the Labour candidate in the recent elections and lied about being told no rocks were thrown at Mike Wetherley. He's a nasty piece of work.
Hilarious...utterly hilarious....

It's almost Pavlovian how you can always be relied upon to come trolling into a discussion. I could almost set my watch by it.

Any abuse from you can of course only be treated as high praise.

I suppose that, for as long as you are here, your own planet is getting a rest at least.
Yes and as always we can rely on you to not actually confirm nor deny any of the less savoury facts made about you.

You never did say what you were doing at the university the day Mike Wetherley got attacked.
These "less savoury" facts apparently being....that I voted in an election, and I challenged the accuracy of a report in a local paper.....

"Of his (mayor's) salary – currently £51,000, though the figure could change – Ferguson said he would take it in Bristol pounds, a currency introduced this year and proving a success".

Someone seems to believe in the Bristol project...maybe if it becomes a runner here, politicians might like to demonstrate their faith in a Brighton pound similarly?

Had this been Kirby or Weatherley then there would not been a peep. Is it an organised campaign I wonder?

Are there schemes that work? If the answer is yes, then can they be applied to B&H successfully? If yes then we should explore doing so. If no is the answer to the above then we should not proceed. That is the grown up thing to do.

It is clear that most of the above will not join in, that is not a problem as there are many that will support a scheme if it can be demonstrated to work, particularly if it supports our local shops and suppliers.
Kirby and Weatherly would not propose such nonsense. Its another example of the Greens fiddling whilst Rome burns. They are getting close to finalising their ten commandments for how we should live our lives. Let's see what have we had so far...
1. Thou shalt not eat meet on Monday.
2. Thou shall not play the National lottery for tis bad for the working class who cannot be trusted to spend their money responsibly.
3. Thou shalt not burn yuletide logs at the time formally known as Christmas.
4. Thou shalt not refer to each other as Mr or Mrs for thou art gender neutral and it is an abomination to two citizens and the Lord Phelim.
5. Thou shalt not use thy car unless thou is rich and can afford to park it.
6. Thou shalt not attend Farmer's Markets for they are the crucibles of speciesism a discrimination akin to racism and homophobia (this commandment to be phased in by 2016).
7. Thou shalt not use money save for the Brighton Pound and otherwise return to the barter system for Caroline delights in clean exchanges amongst the self-rightous.
8. Thou shalt ride thy bike the wrong way down one-way streets for the laws of the road do not apply to thou and Jason shall rise up and apply his laws to his people and smite the petrolheads.

Two more to go. Or have I missed anything?
1. "meet on Monday";
2. "thou shall";
3. "formally";
6. "farmer's".

Personally, I blame the teachers. Especially the Latin teachers. At the public (sic.) school wot General Dreedle went to.

How would it be a dictatorship if a by-election is called?

Do try and keep up....
How would it be a dictatorship?

How about arbitrary removal of powers given to an elected body without due process...

And what would be the 'legal' definition of incompetence perchance?

Mind you - you may have just displayed the perfect example of 'sheer incompetence'...lol
Good Lord, you're just not very bright, are you?
Are you sure you shouldn't have called yourself BorninBrightonyester
