it is not him personally, but i get your drift. why oh why will the council not consider Park and Ride? if they really don't want cars in the city, give them somewhere else to go that doesn't cost the earth. it is no good saying that there is a park and ride at withdean, as it only holds a few cars. proper sites are needed, and fast

Everyone wants park and ride- there simply are no suitable sites. To the north we have the national park, and waterhall is on top of our drinking water supplies so cannot be concreted over.
To the east and west we have built up areas.

Where then?

I foresee this thread going nuts.

As in 'I have divine right to drive my car as fast as I please. The Greens are tawts. Anything on less than 4 wheels are the scum of the universe. Kitcat et al are out to kill us all via UFO out of body experiences. And please sign a online form that defies the democratic system of voting.'

And it's over to the usual ranters and misinformed Argus readers...

In the midst of a recession when many businesses are struggling to continue paying and employing workers why does he insist (against the will of the majority of residents in Brighton) to push through anti-car parking charges and measures which are seriously damaging many sectors of the Brighton economy.

Is it true as everyone is saying that Jason Kitkat changed his name by deed poll to that of a chocolate bar? Has he considered doing the same to give him more credibility amongst his colleagues. If so what type of chocolate would he most like to change his surname to?

Against the majority? What anti car 'measures' are you referring to?
If you mean bus lanes and cycle lanes, surely the message is a positive one of rebalancing the road environment to reflect the needs of all road users as opposed to just that of car drivers.

Mr Davey when is your party going to take action to improve the woefully low recycling rates in the city.
In my street less than 10 per cent of homes recycle and we have front and back gardens so there's no excuse?
Is you reluctance to do this because you are afraid of the unions?

Yes - against the majority. As the front pages of many newspapers have reported most people in Brighton are hostile to the Greens. As the Economist said car owners can't stand them - the rest of the population have no interest in anything they have done and don't support them. Don't take my word for it talk to people on the bus, in the shops and not just those as the Green Party Christmas do.

Rebalancing?! The parking charges haven't rebalanced they have made Brighton unaffordable to visit for families and anyone other than those on very high incomes. It isn't fair that Brighton should have been sacrificed as a warning to the rest of the country of the consequences of voting in the green party. The Tories and Labour party might be laughing but the rest of us are worried sick about the damage they are causing.

I am also a cyclist and am supportive of certain cycle lanes. I am not however supportive of cycle lanes that are expensive to build, unpopular with cyclists and suffocate the entrance arteries to the city by causing traffic build up which will cause higher levels of population for those that chose to walk or live near the roads where these lanes have been built.

Mr Davey how did Caroline Lucas get to Stanmer park for a photo shoot a few weeks ago and who removed an inaccurate press release littered with false claims and inaccurate figures about the Lewes Road public consultation from the councils website after the press published the release.
Why did your party then not re issue a release apologising for the false aims and inaccurate data?
Why did the council withold the officers report into the Lewes road feasibility study? Are you happy to be part of a party which is failing to act honesty and openly with the electorate?
