It's debate day - The Argus

The Argus: Neil Vowles with some of the postal votes Neil Vowles with some of the postal votes

Hundreds of people are expected to gather this evening for one of the city’s most anticipated political debates of recent years.

The Green administration’s proposal to increase council tax by 4.75% has split the city ever since it was announced earlier this year.

Brighton and Hove City Council leader Jason Kitcat has stuck to his guns – claiming the rise is crucial to save essential care services.

Meanwhile Labour leader Warren Morgan has argued a 2% rise would be sufficient while Geoffrey Theobald, Conservative leader, has backed a freeze in rates.

Under current Whitehall rules, town halls cannot increase council tax by more than 2% without triggering a local referendum.

So if taken forward, the residents of Brighton and Hove would get to have their say at the ballot box on May 22 – the same time as the European elections.

Such a vote is estimated to cost the public £230,000.

Ever since The Argus broke the story of the proposed rise back in mid-January, the phones in the newsroom have not stopped ringing.

We have been inundated with views, questions and the occasional rant.

But not all has been negative. Many have praised the Greens for the “bold” move in an attempt to save public services.

With the strength of public feeling, we decided to not only hold our own referendum but also a public debate.

The Argus post room has been swamped with questions which we will put to your political leaders tonight.

Those we don’t have time for, we will ask afterwards and print the responses.

Michael Beard, The Argus editor, who will chair the debate, said: “The potential for the country’s first ever council tax referendum in Brighton and Hove has sparked fierce debate across the city.

“That is why The Argus has decided to stage The Argus Council Tax Debate at Hove Town Hall from 7pm tonight, so that the leaders of the three main parties in Brighton and Hove can explain where they stand on the budget, council tax and the proposed referendum, and why.

“We were determined that our readers, both in paper and online, should have all the facts, figures and arguments in front of them.

“Tonight’s debate will also give you the chance to ask the questions you want answered to the city’s political leaders.”

The proposed rise took opposition leaders and residents by surprise with the council thought to be working to an increase of about 2% for the 2014/15 financial year.

But, with a budget gap of more than £2 million, the Greens claim an above-inflation council tax rise was their only option.

If it goes ahead, it would result in an average Band D property increase of £71.64 a year to £1,578.92.

It would form part of a revised budget, which would have to be agreed at the council’s cross-party policy and resources committee next Thursday.

The rise would then go before all 54 councillors on February 27 with Conservatives (18 members) and Labour (14) able to unite and vote down the Green plan.

If it went ahead, the proposed referendum would then follow on May 22.

Setting out his stall before the debate, council leader Jason Kitcat, said the rise was needed with social care “in crisis”.

He added: “We should be proud to live in a caring society – one which has chosen to look after those who need it most.

“While our ageing population creates more demand for social care services, there is less and less money each year to keep providing what our most vulnerable need today, let alone the coming years.

“However there is only so much that can be taken from councils before there are few or no meaningful services left for those who depend on them.

“Given the further £100million our budget will shrink by in the next four years, we have reached a point where the city faces a significant choice: Either we don’t want to pay more to care for our most vulnerable citizens or we speak out for those who are rarely heard: the elderly, the frail, the disabled, the vulnerable.”

He added: “Our proposal is a clear, a practical and principled approach to protecting essential social care services. With this major step we should trust our city, and let the people decide.”

However, Labour leader Warren Morgan will argue residents cannot afford the rise.

He said: “Since 2010 water bills have gone up by 4%, gas and electricity prices have risen by over 8%, fares by more than 4% and clothing by a whopping 10%.

“In the same time real wages have fallen by 2.2% according to the Office of National Statistics. One in three Brighton and Hove residents has rising debts.

“They can’t afford a £6 a month tax rise. Labour say that residents should not be made to pay for Tory cuts to local councils.”

He will also argue the money for a referendum would be better spent on public services, and is expected to conclude that a 2% council tax increase is fairer – the same as set by nearby Kent and Surrey County Councils.

Geoffrey Theobald, Conservative leader, will state his party’s case for a freeze on council tax rates.

He said: “There is absolutely no appetite for a council tax rise of any kind – let alone one more than double the rate of inflation. The Argus ‘referendum’ results will back this up.

“After mortgage or rent payments, council tax is the biggest monthly bill that most people have and, as councillors, I believe that we have a duty to keep it as low as possible.”

Everyone is welcome at tonight’s debate, but we advise arriving well before the 7pm start time to avoid disappointment. Admission is free.

The Argus referendum ends tomorrow. To take part, vote in our ballot below:

If the Greens had not squandered ratepayers money on useless, expensive vanity projects, like cycle lanes, a well as the chaotic new systems at the Seven Dials and the Vogue roundabouts, they would have had more to spend on the really important services they are moaning about. That is something to be remembered when election time comes around.

The elderly, the frail, the disabled, the vulnerable and now cyclists. Exactly how many have you ignored until you feel the need to use them for your political ends. How about cutting the massive overspend in the communiction department for a start, what was it last time over £100,000. And surely if the intention is to raise tax money or all these people there isn't a need for a general tax hike just the departments they use. That should cut any increase if you freeze all the other budgets and only give a 2% raise for those places.

Will the funds be ring-fenced and how secure will that ring-fencing be? I've hear that there were some tentative suggestions being made about taking funding from the Housing Revenue Account (HRA). If the Green administration shows such basic ignorance of how funding is organised within local authorities, can we trust them with any additional funding they claim they require for essential care services?

Ah yes, but that transport budget is made up of fines and parking fees which make a £16m profit. Residents pay over £100 for their parking permits which apparently is the "cost" of running the scheme. Yet Bristol City Council only charge £48 a year which apparently is to cover the "cost" of the scheme. Is Brighton and Hove Council really that incompetent that it costs them over DOUBLE to run a residents parking scheme ? Or is it more likely that they want loads of cash for their vanity projects ?

I am vehemently anti most of the traffic measures that the Greens have imposed on the motorist. There have been thousands of column inches devoted to these topics and I don't intend to address them here.
In addition - how come a Green council can't manage to organise a very basic and simple refuse and recycling collection? They never come on the day they are supposed to, and that's if they come at all. We haven't had a recycling collection for three weeks now.
So they want more money via the council tax. I would be amenable to this as long as it is ring fenced.
I don't want any more money spent on bus lanes that don't work, or unused cycle lanes. If the money is to be spent ONLY on social services and social provision, and on repairing the existing roads PROPERLY, I don't have a problem.
But of course that means that I DO have a problem, as this will never happen.

How many more times, most of the highways spending is from a different budget, often funded at a national or regional level. Vanity project or much needed improvement? You are welcome to your opinion but it is just that. Nothing chaotic at the Dials over and above the "chaos" you would expect from seven roads converging on one small space.

Er, would you by any chance just happen to be a student?

Well, yes actually I am a student actually, though I don't see what that has got to do with anything.

I think one of the reasons that there is so much hate for Caroline is that anti-Green people (who have not been to university, are unemployed and not very intelligent) cannot stand to see a strong, successful woman like Dr Caroline Lucas PhD make such a fantastic success as one-time leader of the Green Party; nor can they bare to see how popular she is with the people of Brighton.

Oh God, I just KNEW that you had to be a student!

As a Green, could you please explain 1) what is a 'one people and planet biosphere diversity city' that you say Brighton is due to become, and 2) how much will it cost us hard-working tax payers for you 'snot' Greens to implement it?

What rubbish. Just because you are anti-cyclist does make providing cycle lanes vanity projects. Amazing how upset some people get when a tiny proportion of the transport budget is spent to improve the lot of the thousands of cyclists in the city and who have been largely ignored for years!
How is your mate 'Brussels' Lucas after her run-in with plod? Not like her to be so quiet!

Nobody in her constituency has seen hide-nor hair of 'Brussels'; is she still actually in Brighton?
Actually I have seen her a number of times. Last time I actually spoke to her was at an anti-gagging law meeting here in Brighton. Weatherley and the Kirby couldn't be bothered to turn up but she did.

Yes ... nice ideological strides but in fact, the Green Administration is here to administer a city. My city! The city where I and others live, send our children to school, look after our elderly parents, use the pavements and the roads, await the refuse trucks and recycling vans, use our local parks and bowling greens ... oops sorry, your nice green administration put a stop to that one didn't they.

So please do try and differentiate between ideology and pragmatism.

Are the roads less potholed?
Are the pavements better lit?
Are refuse and recycling rounds on time and with a reasonable frequency?
Are our parks better maintained?
Are our schools better equipped?
Are our verges better kept?

There ... I've given you a pointer as to the type of concerns residents who are asked to increase their Council Tax levy would have.

Oh and just as a matter of personal interest ... how safe are the fish in local authority ponds?

Twinning Brighton with Beit-Ummar in Palestine is far more important than fixing roads, just so that you petrol-heads can cause pollution and give us cancer.

How dare you suggest that I leave the town I have lived in all my life. If you can find any of these other parts of the UK that you say are so envious of us in Brighton, then I suggest that you, Caroline Lucas, Jason Kitkat, HJarrs and all their green cronies get on your bicycles and peddle out of Brighton and go to them as quickly as possible, I can guarantee that a lot of residents, that are as sick of the Green party as I am, will be there to cheer you on your way. Having read a lot in the press, I think you will find that the majority of the country are laughing at Brighton’s current council, and are thankful they have not got anything to do with the green party. Hopefully Brighton’s brush with green politics will have killed that party stone dead.

I am immensely proud to live in a city whose population were smart enough to vote in a Green administration; if you don't like it, tough.

Leave Brighton if it bothers you that much
Er, would you by any chance just happen to be a student?

They are the ones who are just stupid enough to vote for the Green Party...
Well, yes actually I am a student actually, though I don't see what that has got to do with anything.

I think one of the reasons that there is so much hate for Caroline is that anti-Green people (who have not been to university, are unemployed and not very intelligent) cannot stand to see a strong, successful woman like Dr Caroline Lucas PhD make such a fantastic success as one-time leader of the Green Party; nor can they bare to see how popular she is with the people of Brighton.
Oh God, I just KNEW that you had to be a student!

As a Green, could you please explain 1) what is a 'one people and planet biosphere diversity city' that you say Brighton is due to become, and 2) how much will it cost us hard-working tax payers for you 'snot' Greens to implement it?
As you are so clearly anti-Green, I very much doubt that you are intellectually capable of understanding what a 'One-People-And-Plan

et Biosphere Diversity City' is.
Yes, my degree in psychology and my M.Phil research post-graduate degree would mean that I am completely incapable of understanding the concept of a one people and planet biosphere diversity city.

Sorry to have bothered you....

Yes ... nice ideological strides but in fact, the Green Administration is here to administer a city. My city! The city where I and others live, send our children to school, look after our elderly parents, use the pavements and the roads, await the refuse trucks and recycling vans, use our local parks and bowling greens ... oops sorry, your nice green administration put a stop to that one didn't they.

So please do try and differentiate between ideology and pragmatism.

Are the roads less potholed?
Are the pavements better lit?
Are refuse and recycling rounds on time and with a reasonable frequency?
Are our parks better maintained?
Are our schools better equipped?
Are our verges better kept?

There ... I've given you a pointer as to the type of concerns residents who are asked to increase their Council Tax levy would have.

Oh and just as a matter of personal interest ... how safe are the fish in local authority ponds?
Twinning Brighton with Beit-Ummar in Palestine is far more important than fixing roads, just so that you petrol-heads can cause pollution and give us cancer.
Oh dear liefling ... you really have lost all credibility. Is that what they teach at university now? If you cannot construct a well reasoned argument and back it up with verifiable facts then just revert to insults?

How dare you suggest that I leave the town I have lived in all my life. If you can find any of these other parts of the UK that you say are so envious of us in Brighton, then I suggest that you, Caroline Lucas, Jason Kitkat, HJarrs and all their green cronies get on your bicycles and peddle out of Brighton and go to them as quickly as possible, I can guarantee that a lot of residents, that are as sick of the Green party as I am, will be there to cheer you on your way. Having read a lot in the press, I think you will find that the majority of the country are laughing at Brighton’s current council, and are thankful they have not got anything to do with the green party. Hopefully Brighton’s brush with green politics will have killed that party stone dead.
We students are all going to vote Green to make sure that we are re-elected next year.

You can do a number of things;

1) Accept it
2) Become bitter and twisted, sit at home eating pies and smoking, and continue ranting on Argus forums
3) Leave Brighton.

Your choice.

Erm, you're a bit creepy really, aren't you?
Just so you all know, I have copy and pasted all of these anti-Green comments and sent them in an email to Jason Kitcat.

All we have done for you people, and this is how you repay us? Do any of you have any idea how hard the Greens work for you? No, we don't boast or brag about it, we just work quietly and efficiently to make Brighton a better place for everyone.

Do you have any idea whatever how hard Ben Duncan works for the travelling community? He even works unpaid overtime on this issue, but does he ever receive thanks from you lot? Green Councillors Anya Kitcat and Alexa Phillips has worked REALLY hard to get Brighton twinned with Beit-Ummar, and we should see this happen later in the year. Any thanks from you lot? No, just hate.

No doubt you would like the incompetent Labour Party back in power? Well, tough; the Greens will utilise the student vote and we will be back in power next year. We students have already started campaigning for the Green Party and will help return them to power next year.

We will continue to work hard for all of you people in Brighton (even though you don't deserve it after the way you criticise hard-working Greens)

I am going, I have had enough of you Green haters

I am immensely proud to live in a city whose population were smart enough to vote in a Green administration; if you don't like it, tough.

Leave Brighton if it bothers you that much
Leave Brighton? Isn't that what students do when they've got their degree in pseud bolloxology?

I don't know what your career plans but good advice would be no to go into politics. Obviously not your strong suit

It is difficult to be sure but my diagnosis is possible Trollitis or alternatively watching too many episodes of 'The Young Ones' (resulting in Adeitis) or 'Citizen Smith' - the latter condition is known as Wolfyism and is listed on the WHO web-site as having its origins in an outbreak in Tooting, London.

Exposure to the real world can often cure the latter two conditions.

I have also seen improvements from the use of acupuncture - see www.UNeedleme.com for recommended, local clinics.

He won't resign;

The Greens will continue to lurch from crisis to catastrophe.

As our student friend says, it is not impossible that a bloc of student votes could, conceivably, return the Greens to power.

What about raising the extra funds needed to help pay for staff pensions,redundancy payments,bike lanes ,transgender toilets etc by putting a mansion tax of £1,000 on each property over the value of £100,000 in brighton &hove,in addition to the council tax we are already paying.

Er, would you by any chance just happen to be a student?

Well, yes actually I am a student actually, though I don't see what that has got to do with anything.

I think one of the reasons that there is so much hate for Caroline is that anti-Green people (who have not been to university, are unemployed and not very intelligent) cannot stand to see a strong, successful woman like Dr Caroline Lucas PhD make such a fantastic success as one-time leader of the Green Party; nor can they bare to see how popular she is with the people of Brighton.
so anyone who doesn't agree with you and the green party are all "(who have not been to university, are unemployed and not very intelligent) "
and I was here thinking One-People-And-Plan et Biosphere Diversity City.
Unfortunately I never got to opportunity to go to university however as a '29 yr old employed college educated person' I'm considered a troglodyte by your standards then?
You clearly show the contempt the current Green Party administration and SOME members have for anyone not 100% kissing their a**e
"are way or the highway" comes to mind.
I will note however, that I am in favour of quite a lot of the greens policies, along with a a few of Labours and Conservatives come up with one or two sometimes too. It's just a shame that most politicians seem to forget they are here to serve the people not there own agendas.

Er, would you by any chance just happen to be a student?

They are the ones who are just stupid enough to vote for the Green Party...
Well, yes actually I am a student actually, though I don't see what that has got to do with anything.

I think one of the reasons that there is so much hate for Caroline is that anti-Green people (who have not been to university, are unemployed and not very intelligent) cannot stand to see a strong, successful woman like Dr Caroline Lucas PhD make such a fantastic success as one-time leader of the Green Party; nor can they bare to see how popular she is with the people of Brighton.
so anyone who doesn't agree with you and the green party are all "(who have not been to university, are unemployed and not very intelligent) "

You've hit the nail on the head, mate.

Unfortunately, instead of the Greens saying "Ok, what is it that the people of Brighton want and need?", their attitude is "We are going to give the people of Brighton THIS, whether they want it or not" (Cycles lanes, 20MPH speed limit, etc).

I'm not saying that Labour or Conservatives are any better, it's just the whole Green Party, and their achingly trendy, politically-correct and 'right on' views in my eyes, make them worse than any other party

How dare you suggest that I leave the town I have lived in all my life. If you can find any of these other parts of the UK that you say are so envious of us in Brighton, then I suggest that you, Caroline Lucas, Jason Kitkat, HJarrs and all their green cronies get on your bicycles and peddle out of Brighton and go to them as quickly as possible, I can guarantee that a lot of residents, that are as sick of the Green party as I am, will be there to cheer you on your way. Having read a lot in the press, I think you will find that the majority of the country are laughing at Brighton’s current council, and are thankful they have not got anything to do with the green party. Hopefully Brighton’s brush with green politics will have killed that party stone dead.
We students are all going to vote Green to make sure that we are re-elected next year.

You can do a number of things;

1) Accept it
2) Become bitter and twisted, sit at home eating pies and smoking, and continue ranting on Argus forums
3) Leave Brighton.

Your choice.
Erm, you're a bit creepy really, aren't you?
Just so you all know, I have copy and pasted all of these anti-Green comments and sent them in an email to Jason Kitcat.

All we have done for you people, and this is how you repay us? Do any of you have any idea how hard the Greens work for you? No, we don't boast or brag about it, we just work quietly and efficiently to make Brighton a better place for everyone.

Do you have any idea whatever how hard Ben Duncan works for the travelling community? He even works unpaid overtime on this issue, but does he ever receive thanks from you lot? Green Councillors Anya Kitcat and Alexa Phillips has worked REALLY hard to get Brighton twinned with Beit-Ummar, and we should see this happen later in the year. Any thanks from you lot? No, just hate.

No doubt you would like the incompetent Labour Party back in power? Well, tough; the Greens will utilise the student vote and we will be back in power next year. We students have already started campaigning for the Green Party and will help return them to power next year.

We will continue to work hard for all of you people in Brighton (even though you don't deserve it after the way you criticise hard-working Greens)

I am going, I have had enough of you Green haters
Look what is so special about Beit Ummar? It's deeply involved in the Israeli–Palestinia

n conflict and it has an 80% unemployment rate. And those are just its good points.

Are we supposed to be grateful to be twinned with possibly the second most ghastly town on earth (behind Crawley)?
I have lived in Brighton all my life and I've sadly seen it changed beyond recognition by these green dictators. Green girl summed it all up when she said "DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH WE ARE DOING FOR THE TRAVELLING COMMUNITY?" Coming from a non council tax paying non contributing freeloader in support of another group of non contributing individuals this is no surprise really. When the greens push their permanent Irish travellers site through on our beautiful south downs at an initial cost of £1.7 million this is just the beginning. The running costs will run into hundreds of thousands of pounds, and guess who will have to pick up the bill? YER GOOD OLD COUNCIL TAX PAYER.

I doubt it; my girlfriend is reading for a PhD at Sussex, and she says that she comes into contact with 18-19 year old kids (first time away from Mummy and Daddy) who really think that the Green Party is the greatest thing in the world.

I showed my girlfriend some of the comments that Green Girl has written, and she says that it is exactly the sort of thing that she hears students saying in the Union bar, i.e stuff helping the homeless, the poor and elderly, let's twin Brighton with some hole-in-the-ground in Afghanistan because we need to , you know, show 'solidarity' as world citizens.

in 20 years time, Green Girl will probably be leader of the Green Party; she's got the spiel.....

Yes, but in the warped mind of our student friend, Palestinian = good.

And don't forget, Caroline Lucas loves Islamic hate-preachers, even when they advocate that gay men should be thrown off the top of buildings, and that gay women should be gang-raped and set on fire. Google Caroline Lucas+Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi

She also defended him and his comments about wife-beating and genital mutilation, and toning women to death. 'Brussels' Lucas has shared a platform with him on no less than three occasions

Cultural relativism has a lot to answer for.

No, it's far more easy for you people to knock him, isn't it?

If all of you Green haters left the house more often, you'd realise how people in other parts of the UK envy us in Brighton having a Green council; maybe you'd all like the incompetent Labour Party back in power again?

I am immensely proud to live in a city whose population were smart enough to vote in a Green administration; if you don't like it, tough.

Leave Brighton if it bothers you that much
How dare you suggest that I leave the town I have lived in all my life. If you can find any of these other parts of the UK that you say are so envious of us in Brighton, then I suggest that you, Caroline Lucas, Jason Kitkat, HJarrs and all their green cronies get on your bicycles and peddle out of Brighton and go to them as quickly as possible, I can guarantee that a lot of residents, that are as sick of the Green party as I am, will be there to cheer you on your way. Having read a lot in the press, I think you will find that the majority of the country are laughing at Brighton’s current council, and are thankful they have not got anything to do with the green party. Hopefully Brighton’s brush with green politics will have killed that party stone dead.
We students are all going to vote Green to make sure that we are re-elected next year.

You can do a number of things;

1) Accept it
2) Become bitter and twisted, sit at home eating pies and smoking, and continue ranting on Argus forums
3) Leave Brighton.

Your choice.
Or we could campaign to make students pay council tax as that would make things slightly fairer.

She is probably from Hertfordshire; Mummy is very involved in Pony Club, and Daddy is an accountant.

Green Girl is probably called Gemima, Portia or Charlotte, and decided to study in Sussex as she is currently rebelling against her upper-middle class upbringing and decided that joining the Greens was edgy and alternative

Erm, you're a bit creepy really, aren't you?
Just so you all know, I have copy and pasted all of these anti-Green comments and sent them in an email to Jason Kitcat.

All we have done for you people, and this is how you repay us? Do any of you have any idea how hard the Greens work for you? No, we don't boast or brag about it, we just work quietly and efficiently to make Brighton a better place for everyone.

Do you have any idea whatever how hard Ben Duncan works for the travelling community? He even works unpaid overtime on this issue, but does he ever receive thanks from you lot? Green Councillors Anya Kitcat and Alexa Phillips has worked REALLY hard to get Brighton twinned with Beit-Ummar, and we should see this happen later in the year. Any thanks from you lot? No, just hate.

No doubt you would like the incompetent Labour Party back in power? Well, tough; the Greens will utilise the student vote and we will be back in power next year. We students have already started campaigning for the Green Party and will help return them to power next year.

We will continue to work hard for all of you people in Brighton (even though you don't deserve it after the way you criticise hard-working Greens)

I am going, I have had enough of you Green haters
Small point - if you and your Green buddies don't like what we the people of this great city have to say about you then you should all leave - you and the Green councillors are not Brighton and Hove born and bred and aren't welcome here.

From rwo of Green-Girl-1990's many posts: "Well, yes actually I am a student actually, though I don't see what that has got to do with anything.

I think one of the reasons that there is so much hate for Caroline is that anti-Green people (who have not been to university, are unemployed and not very intelligent) cannot stand to see a strong, successful woman like Dr Caroline Lucas PhD make such a fantastic success as one-time leader of the Green Party; nor can they bare to see how popular she is with the people of Brighton."
and
"I imagine that all you sados are just angry because you were two stupid to get in to university."

This spoilt little girl from Surrey (stockbroker belt?) has shown her contempt for the people of Brighton who have not been privileged enough to go to university. Just because people haven't been to university, doesn't mean that they are stupid. She shows her own lack of education - she can't spell for a start; furthermore, she shows her lack of education in respect of the way she perceives people think and their right to freedom of speech. She also shows her utter stupidity by confirming what we already know by her admission that the Greens are using the student vote to skew results in elections and that supporting non-taxpaying people such as the travellers is given priority over meeting the needs of the local council tax-paying residents. She obviously hero-worships people at the top of the Green administration, whether locally or nationally. She cannot construct her own arguments but just spouts Green dogma fed to her by her leaders, showing that she is unable to think for herself. If she gets her degree, I would be very surprised.

She shows her utter lack of understanding of what local councillors are supposed to do for their community, but, of course, she would lack understanding as the Greens have been her tutors and they do not know how local government works and show their lack of experience and understanding in everything they do in Brighton.

This little girl should go home to Mummy and Daddy and grow up or perhaps she should go to live in Beit-Ummar and never come back.

This spoilt little girl from Surrey (stockbroker belt?) has shown her contempt for the people of Brighton who have not been privileged enough to go to university. Just because people haven't been to university, doesn't mean that they are stupid. She shows her own lack of education - she can't spell for a start; furthermore, she shows her lack of education in respect of the way she perceives people think and their right to freedom of speech. She also shows her utter stupidity by confirming what we already know by her admission that the Greens are using the student vote to skew results in elections and that supporting non-taxpaying people such as the travellers is given priority over meeting the needs of the local council tax-paying residents. She obviously hero-worships people at the top of the Green administration, whether locally or nationally. She cannot construct her own arguments but just spouts Green dogma fed to her by her leaders, showing that she is unable to think for herself. If she gets her degree, I would be very surprised. She shows her utter lack of understanding of what local councillors are supposed to do for their community, but, of course, she would lack understanding as the Greens have been her tutors and they do not know how local government works and show their lack of experience and understanding in everything they do in Brighton. This little girl should go home to Mummy and Daddy and grow up or perhaps she should go to live in Beit-Ummar and never come back. peachesncream

No, it's far more easy for you people to knock him, isn't it?

If all of you Green haters left the house more often, you'd realise how people in other parts of the UK envy us in Brighton having a Green council; maybe you'd all like the incompetent Labour Party back in power again?

I am immensely proud to live in a city whose population were smart enough to vote in a Green administration; if you don't like it, tough.

Leave Brighton if it bothers you that much
Yes ... nice ideological strides but in fact, the Green Administration is here to administer a city. My city! The city where I and others live, send our children to school, look after our elderly parents, use the pavements and the roads, await the refuse trucks and recycling vans, use our local parks and bowling greens ... oops sorry, your nice green administration put a stop to that one didn't they.

So please do try and differentiate between ideology and pragmatism.

Are the roads less potholed?
Are the pavements better lit?
Are refuse and recycling rounds on time and with a reasonable frequency?
Are our parks better maintained?
Are our schools better equipped?
Are our verges better kept?

There ... I've given you a pointer as to the type of concerns residents who are asked to increase their Council Tax levy would have.

Oh and just as a matter of personal interest ... how safe are the fish in local authority ponds?
Twinning Brighton with Beit-Ummar in Palestine is far more important than fixing roads, just so that you petrol-heads can cause pollution and give us cancer.
Twinning Brighton with Beit-Ummar may seem terribly important when you're an ideological 20 something year old, whose most important concern is getting the next essay in on time, and the next cheque arriving from mum and dad. But when you leave the safe haven of university you will realise that it isn't. What you will find is important is having a good job, good schools for you kids, having roads that don't tear you car to bits (greens do have cars you know, the green councillor who lives near me has a relatively old petrol Peugeot) and being able to park without it costing a fortune. So when you and your friends go to vote just remember that one day you will be voting for the important things, and I can promise you which trendy Arab country the place you live wants to twin with, will come very low down on your list

Don't waste money on a referendum. Leave now and let us have a chance at getting some other eejits to run our city instead of having to wait.

Let's see :

1. Sell either Hove or Brighton Town Hall - we don't need two.
2. Pay freeze for all council employees paid over £28k a year
3. A pay cut of 10% for all council employees earning over £60k a year
4. A limit of 4% pension contributions by the council to employees pension funds
5. Alternative rubbish and recycling collections so each is every other week
6. Do what the government did in 2010 and call ALL suppliers in and demand a 10% cut in charges or risk not having their contract renewed
7. 20% cut in councillors allowances
8. Remove subsidies for things like Pride, The Fringe Festival
9. Don't spend £900k on new frontage for the Brighton Centre
10 Divert 50% of parking revenue to general council expenditure ( I know the council can't actually "do" this but apparently they are standing up to council cuts so they should either do it and see what the government does or campaign for it to be allowed.

These don't even touch the budgets for the 75% of services outside those given to the elderly and vulnerable - all of which could be cut as well.

The referendum and emotional blackmail around the "cuts" to the vulnerable is a smoke screen.

Ha, ha! You have been done and you know it! Way, way too obvious on pandering to the prejudices of you moanerati. No doubt "green girl 1990" will become a regular feature of this comments board.

We have a debate today as whether to fight cuts or accept them. Nobody that comments on here seems keen to tell us which social services or voluntary sector funding they will cut if we do not raise council tax by 4.75%. Come on Labour and Tory supporters, tell us!
Oh for the love of God, just be honest and admit that Green Girl is a total exemplar of the arrogant, politically-correct student voter demographic that you Green's are so desperate cultivate.

You Green's are just so incredibly desperate, aren't you No doubt Green Girl is 'off message', but please don't engage in desperate damage limitation; my girlfriend is reading for a PhD at Sussex and tutors idiot children like Green Girl on a daily basis. Green Girl is typical of the immature student vote that you Greens are always trying to cultivate.

Because God knows, no one else will vote for you...
You can't admit you have been done can you!

Sadly, this obsession with the Green supporter stereotype shows what a sad lot you moanerati are. What this article is about a referendum to save services for the most vulnerable, but it seems you are all too happy to avoid which social and voluntary services are to be cut if we don't have a 4.75% CT rise.
God, you just can't be honourable and honest and admit that green girl is the typical student demographic that you are desperately courting, can you?

I would have more respect for you lot if you just admitted that green girl is a desperate embarrassed to you and that yes, you do persue the student vote, but this is not the sort of person who represents the Green ideal.

You continue to dig a hole for yourself; why not just be honest?

I am guessing you actually live in Portugal.

That is EVERY property in Brighton and Hove.

So you want to pay another grand a week in Council Tax for these morons to waste? Hmmm? Why didn't I think of that. Oh yeah. I am not mentally challanged.

If you are in Portugal stay there . Despite their problems at least you have got sun.

Things are getting very worrying now with the admission that the Greens have deployed a security team at tonight's meeting. This is the sort of thing that happened in Germany in the 30s when Hitler was in power and we know where this led...oppression in Germany, Hitler's attempt to dominate the world, world war II and the extermination of millions of human beings in concentration camps and through warfare. Could this be where we are heading if the Greens gain more power?

et Biosphere Diversity City', yet hardly anybody gives them any credit for this. Similarly, Brighton is soon to be twinned with Beit-Ummar in Palestine; this is all thanks to the hard work put-in by Ben Duncan, but do any of you Green haters thank him? No, it's far more easy for you people to knock him, isn't it?

If all of you Green haters left the house more often, you'd realise how people in other parts of the UK envy us in Brighton having a Green council; maybe you'd all like the incompetent Labour Party back in power again?

I am immensely proud to live in a city whose population were smart enough to vote in a Green administration; if you don't like it, tough.

Leave Brighton if it bothers you that much
How dare you suggest that I leave the town I have lived in all my life. If you can find any of these other parts of the UK that you say are so envious of us in Brighton, then I suggest that you, Caroline Lucas, Jason Kitkat, HJarrs and all their green cronies get on your bicycles and peddle out of Brighton and go to them as quickly as possible, I can guarantee that a lot of residents, that are as sick of the Green party as I am, will be there to cheer you on your way. Having read a lot in the press, I think you will find that the majority of the country are laughing at Brighton’s current council, and are thankful they have not got anything to do with the green party. Hopefully Brighton’s brush with green politics will have killed that party stone dead.
We students are all going to vote Green to make sure that we are re-elected next year.

You can do a number of things;

1) Accept it
2) Become bitter and twisted, sit at home eating pies and smoking, and continue ranting on Argus forums
3) Leave Brighton.

Your choice.
Erm, you're a bit creepy really, aren't you?
Just so you all know, I have copy and pasted all of these anti-Green comments and sent them in an email to Jason Kitcat.

All we have done for you people, and this is how you repay us? Do any of you have any idea how hard the Greens work for you? No, we don't boast or brag about it, we just work quietly and efficiently to make Brighton a better place for everyone.

Do you have any idea whatever how hard Ben Duncan works for the travelling community? He even works unpaid overtime on this issue, but does he ever receive thanks from you lot? Green Councillors Anya Kitcat and Alexa Phillips has worked REALLY hard to get Brighton twinned with Beit-Ummar, and we should see this happen later in the year. Any thanks from you lot? No, just hate.

No doubt you would like the incompetent Labour Party back in power? Well, tough; the Greens will utilise the student vote and we will be back in power next year. We students have already started campaigning for the Green Party and will help return them to power next year.

We will continue to work hard for all of you people in Brighton (even though you don't deserve it after the way you criticise hard-working Greens)

I am going, I have had enough of you Green haters
Green Girl must have the day off as the Uni tutors are on strike !

You can tell she is a true green with her so caring attitude towards her felloe human beings and her determination to inflict 4 more years of pain on us.

So people of Brighton beware, go out and vote and get rid of the snot greens, now you have heard from one of the zealots on the street.

At the end of the day the bottom line is this; our Brighton is being systematically destroyed by these greens. I've lived here all my life (unlike most of the green rabble) and I can safely say the place has changed for the worse since the greens were voted in mainly by non council tax paying students.. It won't be long before they are voted out but what's the alternative? Career politicians all seem to come from the same mould.

Ha, ha! You have been done and you know it! Way, way too obvious on pandering to the prejudices of you moanerati. No doubt "green girl 1990" will become a regular feature of this comments board.

We have a debate today as whether to fight cuts or accept them. Nobody that comments on here seems keen to tell us which social services or voluntary sector funding they will cut if we do not raise council tax by 4.75%. Come on Labour and Tory supporters, tell us!
Oh for the love of God, just be honest and admit that Green Girl is a total exemplar of the arrogant, politically-correct student voter demographic that you Green's are so desperate cultivate.

You Green's are just so incredibly desperate, aren't you No doubt Green Girl is 'off message', but please don't engage in desperate damage limitation; my girlfriend is reading for a PhD at Sussex and tutors idiot children like Green Girl on a daily basis. Green Girl is typical of the immature student vote that you Greens are always trying to cultivate.

Because God knows, no one else will vote for you...
You can't admit you have been done can you!

Sadly, this obsession with the Green supporter stereotype shows what a sad lot you moanerati are. What this article is about a referendum to save services for the most vulnerable, but it seems you are all too happy to avoid which social and voluntary services are to be cut if we don't have a 4.75% CT rise.
Moanerati! Hilarious, so so so funny funny funny. Doesn't get old no matter how much you use it. But seriously it just shows your arrogance in dismissing any one who dares to have a different opinion to you as a moaner.

So, the sooner the better it returns to "Dole on sea" the better then?
So tell me HJarrs, how have the Greens improved life for me as a non cycling, tax paying resident of this city? This city where I and others live, send our children to school, look after our elderly parents, use the pavements and the roads, await the refuse trucks and recycling vans, use our local parks and bowling greens ... oops sorry, your nice green administration put a stop to that one didn't they.

Are the roads less potholed?
Are the pavements better lit?
Are refuse and recycling rounds on time and with a reasonable frequency?
Are our parks better maintained?
Are our schools better equipped?
Are our verges better kept?

Because like it or not HJarrs, it is those issues, and similar issues, that a local authority is supposed to concern itself with first and foremost. Not twinning with some Palestinian settlement, not making sweeping grandstanding referendums at the expense of already overly taxed residents, not by wasting time on ludicrous gender neutral terminology ... the list of the idiotic suggestions made by your green pals goes on.

I don't care who's in charge to be honest with you but the facts are plain to see, this administration Is anti tourist. For example cancelling the zombie walk for the sake of 2 grand! what ****! This amazing fun event attracted thousands of people and mostly by train. The parking charges are laughable and the only reason the city is busy in the summer is because of foreign language students, who I think are great by the way.

Where have you been hiding mimseycal, time to stick your head outside of bubble Brighton? The council is having to deliver many more services whilst facing cuts year on year! Are the verges better kept! How ridiculous. Take a look around at neighbouring councils, how about across the country. You tell me which authority facing similar levels of government cuts has managed to retain as many services as B&H? In Carlisle last week they were proposing to take away all the kids swings and slides in a third playgrounds to save money and you are worried about trimming a few verges! In our city we lost a mobile library, in many places they have lost the majority of their library service! The running of councils is no longer about improving services, it is about hanging on grimly to as much as you can. Despite this in Brighton and Hove schools results are up, the council has been able to bring in a lot of external money for infrastructure projects to improve the lot of pedestrians, bus users and cyclists, the first council houses in over 20 years have been built, lead on the living wage etc, etc, etc.

You tell me mimseycal, how are all those services you list you expect to be improved when we face £26 million cuts this year and similar next? We will have lost over £100 million over 4 years. You tell me what Labour and Conservatives will magically do to improve the situation? Sure, they will turn away the government grants for transport improvements to avoid a bit of criticism in the Argus comments, denying the city investment. The Conservatives plan to privatise and outsource and cut and Labour? They will do what they have all over the country, cut, cut, cut and wring their hands.

Despite this in Brighton and Hove schools results are up, the council has been able to bring in a lot of external money for infrastructure projects to improve the lot of pedestrians, bus users and cyclists, the first council houses in over 20 years have been built, lead on the living wage etc, etc, etc. You tell me mimseycal, how are all those services you list you expect to be improved when we face £26 million cuts this year and similar next? We will have lost over £100 million over 4 years. You tell me what Labour and Conservatives will magically do to improve the situation? Sure, they will turn away the government grants for transport improvements to avoid a bit of criticism in the Argus comments, denying the city investment. The Conservatives plan to privatise and outsource and cut and Labour? They will do what they have all over the country, cut, cut, cut and wring their hands. HJarrs

I think that we all share your concerns, and it is indeed sinister that this Green supporter states that there will be a 'security team' on hand. What are they there for?

Still, the Green's, being Marxists, hate democracy; I would not be in the slightest bit surprised if they instigate some kind of disorder and then play the 'victim' card
At the end of the day the bottom line is this; our Brighton is being systematically destroyed by these greens. I've lived here all my life (unlike most of the green rabble) and I can safely say the place has changed for the worse since the greens were voted in mainly by non council tax paying students.. It won't be long before they are voted out but what's the alternative? Career politicians all seem to come from the same mould. All with hidden agendas, looking after themselves, back handers and corruption. And to top it all they all seem to be as thick as **** and socially inept. Non of which helps the tax payers of this once great town. IT'S SO SAD TO SEE IT GOING DOWN THE PAN.
So, the sooner the better it returns to "Dole on sea" the better then?
So tell me HJarrs, how have the Greens improved life for me as a non cycling, tax paying resident of this city? This city where I and others live, send our children to school, look after our elderly parents, use the pavements and the roads, await the refuse trucks and recycling vans, use our local parks and bowling greens ... oops sorry, your nice green administration put a stop to that one didn't they.

Are the roads less potholed?
Are the pavements better lit?
Are refuse and recycling rounds on time and with a reasonable frequency?
Are our parks better maintained?
Are our schools better equipped?
Are our verges better kept?

Because like it or not HJarrs, it is those issues, and similar issues, that a local authority is supposed to concern itself with first and foremost. Not twinning with some Palestinian settlement, not making sweeping grandstanding referendums at the expense of already overly taxed residents, not by wasting time on ludicrous gender neutral terminology ... the list of the idiotic suggestions made by your green pals goes on.
Where have you been hiding mimseycal, time to stick your head outside of bubble Brighton? The council is having to deliver many more services whilst facing cuts year on year! Are the verges better kept! How ridiculous. Take a look around at neighbouring councils, how about across the country. You tell me which authority facing similar levels of government cuts has managed to retain as many services as B&H? In Carlisle last week they were proposing to take away all the kids swings and slides in a third playgrounds to save money and you are worried about trimming a few verges! In our city we lost a mobile library, in many places they have lost the majority of their library service!

I think that we all share your concerns, and it is indeed sinister that this Green supporter states that there will be a 'security team' on hand. What are they there for?

Still, the Green's, being Marxists, hate democracy; I would not be in the slightest bit surprised if they instigate some kind of disorder and then play the 'victim' card
At the end of the day the bottom line is this; our Brighton is being systematically destroyed by these greens. I've lived here all my life (unlike most of the green rabble) and I can safely say the place has changed for the worse since the greens were voted in mainly by non council tax paying students.. It won't be long before they are voted out but what's the alternative? Career politicians all seem to come from the same mould. All with hidden agendas, looking after themselves, back handers and corruption. And to top it all they all seem to be as thick as **** and socially inept. Non of which helps the tax payers of this once great town. IT'S SO SAD TO SEE IT GOING DOWN THE PAN.
So, the sooner the better it returns to "Dole on sea" the better then?
So tell me HJarrs, how have the Greens improved life for me as a non cycling, tax paying resident of this city? This city where I and others live, send our children to school, look after our elderly parents, use the pavements and the roads, await the refuse trucks and recycling vans, use our local parks and bowling greens ... oops sorry, your nice green administration put a stop to that one didn't they.

Are the roads less potholed?
Are the pavements better lit?
Are refuse and recycling rounds on time and with a reasonable frequency?
Are our parks better maintained?
Are our schools better equipped?
Are our verges better kept?

Because like it or not HJarrs, it is those issues, and similar issues, that a local authority is supposed to concern itself with first and foremost. Not twinning with some Palestinian settlement, not making sweeping grandstanding referendums at the expense of already overly taxed residents, not by wasting time on ludicrous gender neutral terminology ... the list of the idiotic suggestions made by your green pals goes on.
Where have you been hiding mimseycal, time to stick your head outside of bubble Brighton? The council is having to deliver many more services whilst facing cuts year on year! Are the verges better kept! How ridiculous. Take a look around at neighbouring councils, how about across the country. You tell me which authority facing similar levels of government cuts has managed to retain as many services as B&H? In Carlisle last week they were proposing to take away all the kids swings and slides in a third playgrounds to save money and you are worried about trimming a few verges! In our city we lost a mobile library, in many places they have lost the majority of their library service! The running of councils is no longer about improving services, it is about hanging on grimly to as much as you can. Despite this in Brighton and Hove schools results are up, the council has been able to bring in a lot of external money for infrastructure projects to improve the lot of pedestrians, bus users and cyclists, the first council houses in over 20 years have been built, lead on the living wage etc, etc, etc.

You tell me mimseycal, how are all those services you list you expect to be improved when we face £26 million cuts this year and similar next? We will have lost over £100 million over 4 years. You tell me what Labour and Conservatives will magically do to improve the situation? Sure, they will turn away the government grants for transport improvements to avoid a bit of criticism in the Argus comments, denying the city investment. The Conservatives plan to privatise and outsource and cut and Labour? They will do what they have all over the country, cut, cut, cut and wring their hands.
Oh HJarrs, I haven't been hiding dearling. I just wonder where this green administration gets off. They are not the only ones who are facing cuts. My disposable income has been effectively cut with the increase in fuel, food and council tax as well as a freeze on income.

Unlike the green administration I have to lump it and still pay my bills. The green party though throws a hissy fit, set a council tax increase at over 4% and expect the tax payer to fund their grandstanding.

The cuts did not come out of the blue (no pun intended) you know. There is nothing all that unforeseen about it. Why have they not planned better? Do they really not realise that taking on the running of a city means you have to actually know what you are doing? Did they honestly believe that when they were warned about cuts that these cuts would not have an impact?

Verges need cutting, roads need mending and refuse needs collecting. And when your resources shrink you concentrate on getting your priorities right. And like it or not, BHCC Green Councils' priority is the residents that live here ... not their ideology, not their grandstanding and certainly not whether or not we have gender neutral affixes on our forms.

As for the other parties? Do you honestly think that by being as lousy as the rest of them you are selling yourself?

I believe it is known as a "straw man" argument. I think you will find many playing along quite happily!
Wrong m'dear ... a straw man argument is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position. There is no misrepresentation of the fact that our roads are still potholed, though admittedly they have nice shiny new 20mph signs painted on them. The collection of our refuse and recycling is still rather haphazard. Serious council debating time has been taken up by ludicrous notions such as the one that suggested it might be an idea to have cows wander around on a major route into Brighton ... never mind the money spent on grazing sheep - for the tourists of course.

If you are going to use specific debating terminology, it would help if you actually understood what it meant.

We can see the impacts of the climate crisis in The South West that other party's have failed to address with their completely useless ideologies. We can see the collapse of public services.

I've lived here all my life (unlike most of the green rabble) and I can safely say the place has changed for the worse since the greens were voted in mainly by non council tax paying students.. It won't be long before they are voted out but what's the alternative? Career politicians all seem to come from the same mould. All with hidden agendas, looking after themselves, back handers and corruption. And to top it all they all seem to be as thick as **** and socially inept. Non of which helps the tax payers of this once great town. IT'S SO SAD TO SEE IT GOING DOWN THE PAN.
So, the sooner the better it returns to "Dole on sea" the better then?
Dole on Sea?

I guess that means all you Greens will stay here then following the next election.

Like other Brightonions (I appreciate that you regard us as inbred moanerati) here, I have never heard that term in reference to our city.

If I didn't already know that you are such a terrible comedian I'd probably be offended by it, but I understand that you're up against it rather at the moment, being on the dole here or elsewhere isn't much of a laughing matter after all.

Actually I think you'll find you have a party member who has shown the Green Thickarti to be exactly what they are - arrogant and out of touch ..... and of course on their way out in just over 12 months time.
Ha, ha! You have been done and you know it! Way, way too obvious on pandering to the prejudices of you moanerati. No doubt "green girl 1990" will become a regular feature of this comments board.

We have a debate today as whether to fight cuts or accept them. Nobody that comments on here seems keen to tell us which social services or voluntary sector funding they will cut if we do not raise council tax by 4.75%. Come on Labour and Tory supporters, tell us!
Let's see :

1. Sell either Hove or Brighton Town Hall - we don't need two.
2. Pay freeze for all council employees paid over £28k a year
3. A pay cut of 10% for all council employees earning over £60k a year
4. A limit of 4% pension contributions by the council to employees pension funds
5. Alternative rubbish and recycling collections so each is every other week
6. Do what the government did in 2010 and call ALL suppliers in and demand a 10% cut in charges or risk not having their contract renewed
7. 20% cut in councillors allowances
8. Remove subsidies for things like Pride, The Fringe Festival
9. Don't spend £900k on new frontage for the Brighton Centre
10 Divert 50% of parking revenue to general council expenditure ( I know the council can't actually "do" this but apparently they are standing up to council cuts so they should either do it and see what the government does or campaign for it to be allowed.

These don't even touch the budgets for the 75% of services outside those given to the elderly and vulnerable - all of which could be cut as well.

The referendum and emotional blackmail around the "cuts" to the vulnerable is a smoke screen.
Which party are you standing for?

Such obvious sense here - all of it - whoever put the options above before the electorate would, without doubt, wipe the board at the next election.

At last a voice of reason here.

How dare you suggest that I leave the town I have lived in all my life. If you can find any of these other parts of the UK that you say are so envious of us in Brighton, then I suggest that you, Caroline Lucas, Jason Kitkat, HJarrs and all their green cronies get on your bicycles and peddle out of Brighton and go to them as quickly as possible, I can guarantee that a lot of residents, that are as sick of the Green party as I am, will be there to cheer you on your way. Having read a lot in the press, I think you will find that the majority of the country are laughing at Brighton’s current council, and are thankful they have not got anything to do with the green party. Hopefully Brighton’s brush with green politics will have killed that party stone dead.
We students are all going to vote Green to make sure that we are re-elected next year.

You can do a number of things;

1) Accept it
2) Become bitter and twisted, sit at home eating pies and smoking, and continue ranting on Argus forums
3) Leave Brighton.

Your choice.
Erm, you're a bit creepy really, aren't you?
Just so you all know, I have copy and pasted all of these anti-Green comments and sent them in an email to Jason Kitcat.

All we have done for you people, and this is how you repay us? Do any of you have any idea how hard the Greens work for you? No, we don't boast or brag about it, we just work quietly and efficiently to make Brighton a better place for everyone.

Do you have any idea whatever how hard Ben Duncan works for the travelling community? He even works unpaid overtime on this issue, but does he ever receive thanks from you lot? Green Councillors Anya Kitcat and Alexa Phillips has worked REALLY hard to get Brighton twinned with Beit-Ummar, and we should see this happen later in the year. Any thanks from you lot? No, just hate.

No doubt you would like the incompetent Labour Party back in power? Well, tough; the Greens will utilise the student vote and we will be back in power next year. We students have already started campaigning for the Green Party and will help return them to power next year.

We will continue to work hard for all of you people in Brighton (even though you don't deserve it after the way you criticise hard-working Greens)

I am going, I have had enough of you Green haters
Green Girl you are a true Green.

We are SO proud of you! You say:

" I am going, I have had enough of you Green haters"..........

............and what do you do?

Stay, and make yourself more and more unpopular with our ever more ridiculously misguided ideology.

I've found that it is a good rule of thumb just to accept that posters are indeed whom and what they proclaim to be. Answer or address the posts you want to answer or address and leave the personalities be ... It sort of stops you sliding into conspiracy theory mode, starves your propensity to paranoia and generally speaking makes the whole posting experience a lot less fraught ...

I realise that there may well be posters who delight in trolling, flaming and generally sowing mayhem. The thing is that their enjoyment is largely derived by reading posts trying to 'out' them. I refuse to feed their perverse pleasures and the best way is to ignore the poster and address the post.

There speaks a man clearly lacking a sense of humour!

The odd thing is that I am a converted "green hater" - a fully signed up member of the in-bread moanerati, who expected great things of an entirely new political beginning here in Brighton.......

......the wheels very quickly came off that expectation.

Get rid of the ludicrous spin and start delivering proper services to the council tax payers of this city and we moanerati will cease to have a reason for our existence. I for one would be delighted to see that day.......

........until that happens I reserve the right to have a good laugh at the ridiculous Green spin.

Leave Brighton if it bothers you that much[/p][/quote]How dare you suggest that I leave the town I have lived in all my life. If you can find any of these other parts of the UK that you say are so envious of us in Brighton, then I suggest that you, Caroline Lucas, Jason Kitkat, HJarrs and all their green cronies get on your bicycles and peddle out of Brighton and go to them as quickly as possible, I can guarantee that a lot of residents, that are as sick of the Green party as I am, will be there to cheer you on your way. Having read a lot in the press, I think you will find that the majority of the country are laughing at Brighton’s current council, and are thankful they have not got anything to do with the green party. Hopefully Brighton’s brush with green politics will have killed that party stone dead.[/p][/quote]We students are all going to vote Green to make sure that we are re-elected next year. You can do a number of things; 1) Accept it 2) Become bitter and twisted, sit at home eating pies and smoking, and continue ranting on Argus forums 3) Leave Brighton. Your choice.[/p][/quote]Erm, you're a bit creepy really, aren't you?[/p][/quote]Just so you all know, I have copy and pasted all of these anti-Green comments and sent them in an email to Jason Kitcat. All we have done for you people, and this is how you repay us? Do any of you have any idea how hard the Greens work for you? No, we don't boast or brag about it, we just work quietly and efficiently to make Brighton a better place for everyone. Do you have any idea whatever how hard Ben Duncan works for the travelling community? He even works unpaid overtime on this issue, but does he ever receive thanks from you lot? Green Councillors Anya Kitcat and Alexa Phillips has worked REALLY hard to get Brighton twinned with Beit-Ummar, and we should see this happen later in the year. Any thanks from you lot? No, just hate. No doubt you would like the incompetent Labour Party back in power? Well, tough; the Greens will utilise the student vote and we will be back in power next year. We students have already started campaigning for the Green Party and will help return them to power next year. We will continue to work hard for all of you people in Brighton (even though you don't deserve it after the way you criticise hard-working Greens) I am going, I have had enough of you Green haters[/p][/quote]Green Girl you are a true Green. We are SO proud of you! You say: " I am going, I have had enough of you Green haters".......... ............and what do you do? Stay, and make yourself more and more unpopular with our ever more ridiculously misguided ideology. HJarrs, your apprentice is ready for the real world now, you can finally hang up your hat, a job well done, a thoroughly honorable retirement sir![/p][/quote]That's great, but like a true argus anti-green whinger, you're so wrapped up in your anti-green fervour that you haven't noticed that 'Green_Girl' is a character someone (borninbrighton1968) created specifically to get a rise from people that aren't very intuitive, such as yourself and all the other's who've been pulling their hair out responding to 'Green_Girl'.[/p][/quote]There speaks a man clearly lacking a sense of humour! The odd thing is that I am a converted "green hater" - a fully signed up member of the in-bread moanerati, who expected great things of an entirely new political beginning here in Brighton....... ......the wheels very quickly came off that expectation. Get rid of the ludicrous spin and start delivering proper services to the council tax payers of this city and we moanerati will cease to have a reason for our existence. I for one would be delighted to see that day....... ........until that happens I reserve the right to have a good laugh at the ridiculous Green spin. Richada

I realise that there may well be posters who delight in trolling, flaming and generally sowing mayhem. The thing is that their enjoyment is largely derived by reading posts trying to 'out' them. I refuse to feed their perverse pleasures and the best way is to ignore the poster and address the post.
Well you would say that given that you've now got egg on your face, passionately arguing with a troll and bragging to them about how many degrees you have etc etc. For all your qualifications you were sucked in hook, line and sinker in this instance and in the eyes of anyone who can see that you're 'feeding a troll' without knowing it, it just looks daft.

With kitkat's past in the private sector, the council should not be letting this fool make decisions regarding the people of Brightons tax money, as it is more than obvious this person could not organise a drinking session in an ale house

Leave Brighton if it bothers you that much
"if you don't like it, tough. Leave Brighton if it bothers you that much".

Interesting approach. What would you say if the Green party lose the next election and their successors strip out all the "Green" initiatives (including the pointless twinning with a town in Palestine)? What then if the response to your complaint about this is simply "if you don't like it, tough. Leave Brighton if it bothers you that much".
