Warren Morgan: A day to remember for all the proud Brighton fans

I don’t think anyone who was there will forget the day. And there were a lot of us there. For those of us who remember the parade in 1979 from Hove Town Hall or others since, I think we had an idea of what to expect, but what we got was in a different league entirely. Premier League.

Geoffrey Theobald: Stepping down after 50 years of public service

As you may have seen in the media last week, I have decided to step down as leader of the Conservative Group on Brighton and Hove City Council. I think that the time is right for those who will be leading the Conservative Group into the next local elections in two years’ time, then forming what I expect to be a Conservative Administration, now to take the lead.

Kanthi and Bas celebrating all things Dutch

Tom Flint: Brighton chef crosses the North Sea

I mentioned last week about how British culture has often made a hash of imitating the cuisine of other nations. Whilst this was a valid point, there is something to celebrate about the fact we have had so much choice when it comes to dining out for so many years.

Phelim Mac Cafferty: Disabled people have been scapegoated by the Tories

This week disability charity Scope reported that of the 13m disabled people in the UK, 89 per cent have said they will vote at the next General Election on June 8. 
This is very encouraging news for everyone except the Conservative government which has systematically scapegoated disabled people.

Offering everything from bespoke cocktail events, consultancy and training, they can do pretty much anything when it comes to drink.
