Welcome to!

This website was born from the Say No To New Bins campaign which I started in November 2003. Brighton and Hove Council trying to force this scheme upon us when the opposition was about 20 to 1 against the idea made me realise that they had forgotten the concept of democracy. They happily took our Council Tax, and felt little need to justify what they used these funds for.

This must change.

We have all been complacent. We have all allowed this to happen. Now people can post their views here (whatever they are, you may have to justify them with a good argument!) without fear of censorship.

The more we come together, the stronger we are. We can make a difference, and we can save and enhance this beautiful city with its Regency crescents and fascinating architecture.

The first thing to do is let us know you views, whatever they may be. You can do this by clicking on the top link to "Join the Forums ", and register your username (we never reveal personal information to anyone, or you may, if you wish, use a 'nom de plume'). Remember the aim of this site is democracy, so it is vital we hear from as many people as possible. Be sure to tell your friends about the site, even if they are not in the bin areas, they can comment on things that they are not happy about in Brighton and Hove.

Best Wishes,
