Judging by the number of letters published here each week, it is clear that the people of East Sussex welcome any opportunity to air their varied and vibrant views.
Why not then organise a supervised Speaker’s Corner in Lewes perhaps on a Friday or Saturday morning when it could be associated with the various weekly and monthly markets ?
Poetry, opinions, impromptu stand-up comedy and, occasionally perhaps, even sit-down protests. As I said – why not? Hyde Park Corner, Tower Hill and now I suggest VOX LEWES – the voice of the people. Cost ? All it needs is a “soapbox”! After all, speech is free or it jolly well should be!! Speak Up!
