20mph limits do help road safety

The Argus:

1:00pm Friday 25th July 2014

In its latest advertisement (Argus July 18) lobby group Unchain the Brighton Motorist asks your readers why, if 20mph speed limits are safer, in 2013 did the number of casualties nationally increase on 20mph roads whilst they decreased on those with 30 or 40mph speed limits.

The Argus: argus button

1:00pm Thursday 24th July 2014

ONCE again Labour Councillor Warren Morgan introduces party politics into his argument against further council tax charges by claiming that the need for a local increase is “due to the Conservative Government cuts”.

Thanks very much to all

The Argus: argus button

11:54am Thursday 24th July 2014

I have thanks for so many people. First of all to the lovely sponsors – the Theatre Royal, hotels, restaurants, supermarkets and Drusillas, the Sealife Centre and the Wheel, without their help there wouldn’t be a raffle.

Holy hollyhocks

The Argus:

Let’s stop fighting over housing

The Argus: argus button

1:00pm Wednesday 23rd July 2014

It was a little disappointing to read the letters from Julie Cattell (Labour’s ideas are stolen, Letters, 21 July) and Chris Henry (Charter is too late, Letters July 17).

Behaviour is bad

1:00pm Wednesday 23rd July 2014

The Argus: argus button

1:00pm Wednesday 23rd July 2014

In response to the story about students studying (or not studying) material for an English exam and to reassure parents, the same thing happened to an A Level group I was at the old Brighton Grammar School.

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.

Use cycling lanes

11:35am Wednesday 23rd July 2014

On a recent very busy weekend I had to drive along the coast road from Shoreham to Brighton.

Introduce a rule

The Argus: argus button

1:00pm Tuesday 22nd July 2014

We wait and wait

The Argus: argus button

1:00pm Tuesday 22nd July 2014

Can I please ask? As the council seem to have no intention of doing anything to the King’s Road where the ground is unstable at the bottom of West Street can they turn off the traffic lights so the traffic runs freely?

Quit our quarries

The Argus: argus button

1:00pm Tuesday 22nd July 2014

Last year, during a two-month period of unusually warm weather, six people drowned in former quarry lakes across the UK.

Don't drink and drive

The Argus: argus button

1:00pm Tuesday 22nd July 2014

So Betty Teague thinks it’s OK to drive under the influence of drink (Argus July 14). I think the headlines should have read: shamed gran is caught driving over the drink drive limit.

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.

State control won’t work

Animals suffer too much

The Argus: argus button

12:00pm Saturday 19th July 2014

Green council is failing to set right priorities for city

The Argus: argus button

12:00pm Saturday 19th July 2014

We have read a lot about Brighton and Hove City Council and there has been plenty of opposition to ‘static’ roadworks – ie those that never progress, to potholes and street cleanliness.

Rubbish stench is overwhelming

The Argus:

12:00pm Friday 18th July 2014

Since the bin men in Brighton joined the national strike last Thursday, household refuse for that day was not due to be collected until yesterday.

Labour talking 'hogwash' about the Greens

The Argus:

12:00pm Friday 18th July 2014

Michael Inkpin-Leissner is penning utter hogwash when he talks about people’s attitude to Caroline Lucas (letters July 10), basing his arguments on a flawed opinion poll not even about the MP, her constituency or the general election which was held almost a year ago – a long time in politics.

Give us all a laugh

The Argus: argus button

12:00pm Friday 18th July 2014

May I suggest that the town gives the Hippodrome to the Green Party. They are the biggest laugh since the great Max Miller!

Citizens deserve better

The Argus:

3:00pm Thursday 17th July 2014

Labour’s Caroline Penn is apparently ‘appalled’ by our administration’s proposals to address the £25m budget gap we face next financial year, including a 5.9% council tax increase (Letters, July 8).

Tax rises were over 8%

The Argus: argus button

3:00pm Thursday 17th July 2014

Labour Group Leader Warren Morgan’s letter (Argus 10 July 2014) in which he attempts to berate the local Green Party over the suggested 5.9% council tax increase is breathtaking to behold.

They have got it wrong

The Argus: argus button

3:00pm Thursday 17th July 2014

Cllr Warren Morgan is a desperate man. He claims in a recent letter that the Green administration proposal of a 5.9% council tax rise for the next financial year is to enable Caroline Lucas to get voted in again. Really?

Labour awaits the end of the Green council

The Argus:

3:00pm Thursday 17th July 2014

Tim Ridgway’s admiration for Caroline Lucas and her Green Party colleagues continues to grow (Argus July 7) in almost direct correlation to the growing anger felt by many about the problems her party is causing.
