Squat closes after noise complaints

First published in News

A squat in a pub has closed after complaints about parties in the early hours of the morning.

The squat in The Mariner in East Street, Brighton, closed on Monday last week.

A Sussex Police statement said it was shut “after several complaints from local residents about anti-social behaviour at the premises over the past fortnight, including parties into the early hours”.

The statement continued: “Officers worked closely with the new owners and Brighton and Hove City Council, entering the squat peacefully at midday on Monday. The four people within were spoken to and voluntarily left the squat.

“The building has now been returned to the owners.”

Sergeant Dave Bennett, of Brighton and Hove’s Regency policing team, said: “Whilst I appreciate that in the current climate there has been an increase in squatting in commercial premises that does not give people the right to affect others’ quality of life. As has been shown, reports like this will be dealt with in a timely and positive manner.”

I'm just waiting for the inevitable comments about a lack of affordable housing, Tory policies, they're just vulnerable people blah blah blah.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

If there was enough affordable housing vulnerable people wouldn't have to enter a property they own tin order to have warmth and shelter, a basic human right. Until we get the tories out rich landlords and property developers will continue to allow accommodation to sit empty whilst vulnerable people die on the streets.

Well, even if there was enough affordable housing people would still enter premises and sqaut and carry on like they have.

20 years ago I used to squat buildings and we would party on like there was no tomorrow.

Tomorrow has actually come around for me, but I can understand why they have done what they did.

I also understand that when young and with no responsibilities to tie you down it is quite an enormous amount of fun to stick two fingers up at the system in a pointless way, take drugs, get **** and destroy.

The feckless @rseholes.

Fast forwarding myself to the present though: If I was living next door to that pub I'd have been amongst the first to be knocking at the door and threatening to pull their guts out through their noses.

The observant amongst you will have noticed some non sequiturs in my logic and sentiments between the above couple / few paragraphs.

I put that down to getting older, having responsibilities and generally being more miserable and uptight.

That's what the years do to you.

Yes I know all these poor vulnerable people want to do is have a party in peace, is that too much to ask? Surely everyone deserves the basic human rights of warmth, shelter, alcohol and loud music.

**** those politicians for stopping them from having all night parties and keeping the neighbours awake at night.

"Vulnerable people"??? So vulnerable people participate in anti-social behaviour and have parties into the early hours? Whilst they're slowly expiring from TB and starvation they decide to have an all-night rave? Hey, it makes sense! One would want to party as much as poss just before they keel over and take their last breaths. I only hope all that Special Brew doesn't go to waste...

That pub had been empty for 15 months. Good space going to waste, so people with nowhere to live moved in. Can't see a problem with it!
