The Argus: argus button

12:00pm Wednesday 30th July 2014

Don’t open a conference centre at the i360 tower

The Argus:

1:00pm Wednesday 23rd July 2014

Is it good news that the i360 has an exhibition space and conference facilities – where’s the fun? (Argus, July 8.) If the i360 people want a conference centre they should get one on a land site, preferably with a car park. It's not appropriate for this beach site.

Don't drink and drive

The Argus: argus button

1:00pm Tuesday 22nd July 2014

Views are biased

The Argus: argus button

1:00pm Tuesday 22nd July 2014

The anti Israel views carefully avoid the facts, particularly that modern day Israel was brought into being by the United Nations, and on day one was immediately attacked by six combined Arab nations’ armies whose sole intention was to wipe Israel out – a policy since publicly supported and officially adopted by Hamas.

Labour ideas are stolen

The Argus: argus button

12:00pm Monday 21st July 2014

I’m sure we all agree with Caroline Lucas that fundamental changes are required in the private rented sector and her Private Members Bill is to be broadly welcomed (the Argus, July 15.) However, close inspection of her Bill reveals that many of her ideas are an almost direct lift of Ed Miliband’s plans for housing reform that were launched on April 30.

Lucas is our best MP ever

The Argus: argus button

12:00pm Monday 21st July 2014

Voters of Brighton Pavilion should take note of Labour’s desperate attempts to unseat Caroline Lucas in nine month’s time.

Green council is failing to set right priorities for city

The Argus: argus button

12:00pm Saturday 19th July 2014

Animals suffer too much

The Argus: argus button

12:00pm Saturday 19th July 2014

When this government came to power it pledged to reduce the number of animals used in vivisection. But the number of animal experiments in 2013 was the highest in nearly 30 years.
