Brighton butcher stages delivery protest

The Argus: Traders and residents help butcher Graham Maides unload stock as a protest at the lack of a loading bay outside his shop in London Road, Brighton Buy this photo » Traders and residents help butcher Graham Maides unload stock as a protest at the lack of a loading bay outside his shop in London Road, Brighton

Traders and residents gave a butcher a helping hand to get his goods across the road.

The human chain of helpers for M & B Meats yesterday (November 22) were protesting against restrictions preventing the Brighton butcher from unloading outside his London Road shop.

Butcher Graham Maides said: “If I stopped outside my shop for just a few minutes to unload I wouldn’t cause disruption because the road is wide enough but I’m not allowed to.

"But if I park where I can get away with it, I hold up traffic because it’s only one lane. We can only hope the council will listen.”

A Brighton and Hove City Council spokeswoman said the restrictions were in place to prevent delays and that there were places nearby where Mr Maides could unload goods.

It's better than the rubbish you buy in the supermarket and excellent value too!

But I suppose if you only buy the organic stuff from waitrose that you find so "reassuringly expensive", then you might not be so keen!

Surely not! says...

There are plenty of good quality, good value butchers in Brighton. This is not one of them. The meat is reasonably cheap though, if that's all that matters to you.

Meat is Murder! It's time our Green council banned these purveyors of dead flesh. Eat lentils instead and save the world.

If we all ate lentils the greenhouse (intestinal) gases would increase significantly and probably blow a large hole in the ozone layer - not to mention somewhere else.

This protest was the first of many as I understand and a gentle shot across Ian 'the idiot' Daveys bow. As the number of assited unloadings increase across the city he will need to start listening. If you want to let him know how you feel call or email.
