O’ lovely Eastbourne gets £2 million to help rebuild its Victorian pier but Brighton & Hove got no such offer when our west pier needed it

The Pier owner must be a friend of David's to get so much money given at such a time when things are meant to be tight.

This money should be used to house the homeless but of course it won't be, they aren't important to our government.

Complete co-incidence of course the Eastbourne is a marginal seat that the Tories hope to win at the next general election

Perhaps he could show some appreciation to the firefighters that managed to work so hard and SAVE 2/3rds of the pier.
By not cutting back on firefighters, removing fire engines, and closing stations, and stealing their pensions!

Maybe if he cut the number if immigrants coming in here claiming benefits we'd be in a better position than we are now and have a bit more cash.

Eastbourne was a Tory seat until the Lib Dems took it with a very slim majority. It's right near the top of the Conservatives target list to win back next year so that's why Cameron has decided to hand £2 million of tax payers to rebuild the pier in Eastbourne! If Eastbourne were a safe Labour seat or a non-marginal have wouldn't have bothered. £2 million of tax payers money (which they keep telling us they havn't got spare with all the cuts) is a small price for the Tores to pay to gain another seat in May.
In a way it's a mis-use of public money.

Nice 'jolly' by the seaside for Dave and George. Nothing better to do? When will one of 'The Royal' be arriving?

What a cynical bunch you are...look at it as it is, a good news story. I'm sure they would have done the same in any seaside town.

Apparently, according to a news article just on TV, this money is part of a much larger sum being shared by various tourist towns.
Brighton is going to spend their share on a tourist hostel.

Not if UKIP have anything to do with it. Eastbourne residents know what they have to do to help get OUR country back.
