    More and more nasty things happening in Brighton over the past few years.
    We’re all pointing at each other, but NOBODY is pointing at the homeless people being the source of the problem. If you even point in that direction, you’re labeled inhumane before you know it.
    But, we’ve seen more and more of them appear; First in the city centre, now also slowly outside of it; some national, some international.

    They’re coming in droves, and are making Brighton slowly go to hell.
    I’m a hardworking woman, and I’m expecting (with the rent/house prices being so incredibly high) to be able to walk around the main part of the city, without being constantly harassed by beggars and homeless people.

    And I have to be honest to myself: Maybe Brighton is now as it was anymore, and I’ll have to move on (most likely out of the UK).

      Homeless people need help, not your hatred. Homelessness is a problem in Brighton and all major cities in the UK but these people have mental health issues. Blame the Govt for poor funding that’s help cut the police force and outreach centres. I’m sorry love but you do come across as very callous and an uncaring person. Maybe you should move somewhere more in tune with your views.

    They all drink in big packs in the street and wind each other up. New road is the worst.. Get rid of the big bench and reorganise that area. The poor police have it the same every day. Could we get a regular patrol walking round. There never feels like any presence is there!?
