Living in Brighton certainly has its advantages, but sadly it also has one or two serious disadvantages.
We have three MP's; two Labour and one Green. The city council is under 'Green Minority Control'. How much worse could it get!
I don't know too much about Green Party policies other than a few years ago their manifesto promised to stop children having pet Rabbits, and to reduce the length of Artists copyright on their work. You can imagine what I thought about both of these.
One of their current policies has been to stop weed-killing. They have banned the use of Glyphosate on the streets of Brighton and Hove, and promised to employ an extra 20-ish 'gardeners' to cope with all the appalling growth of weeds everywhere. This hasn't happened, I quite expect they're too busy teaching 'gender reassignment policies' to our Primary School children.
Personally I take care of my own weeds and keep them to a minimum with proprietary brand weedkillers (non-Glyphosate), and our front and back are weed-free.
Elsewhere people are not so fastidious, and as you can see above, weeds are left to run amok, and spread where they will.
I'm sure dear Ms Lucas and her bunch of Green do-gooder dungaree wearing woke lovies are all very happy with their super environmental policies, but it does leave our streets looking a right bloody mess!
