My Lewes IDM Cont

What do you think about traffic wardens? I actually applied to be one. I think they’re vital. Lewes is a crowded Medieval town full of cars it wasn’t built for, and people should be stopped from putting cars where they shouldn’t be put.
Which Bonfire Society do you go to? Cliffe. It always struck me as being slightly independent, slightly out of order and slightly rebellious, which fits in with me.
Which newspaper do you read? The Times, and occasionally the Argus.
Are you pro or anti the Phoenix development? I’m in favour of knocking down the industrial estate and building flats. People need housing.
Favourite Lewes landmark? The Martyr’s Memorial.
How would you spend a perfect Sunday afternoon? I frequently walk round the countryside out to Ringmer and through Glynde. At the pub in Ringmer they often turn the jukebox off and allow me to play the piano.
What’s on your hifi? I haven’t got one. I go out every night so I don’t need one. My favourite song is You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away by the Beatles.
Lewes would be better if…
more people walked short distances instead of driving. Then there would be less traffic and we’d all be fitter.
What Lewes really doesn’t need is… to grow much bigger. We’ve reached an ideal size and we ought to stick with it. We want to keep all the fields around the town as fields.
