GREENLEAF = compost.

What a waste of natural resources that GREENLEAF rag is. Not only is it just the half-hearted crowing of a minority administration trying to look like it’s making a difference, but it’s also the typical (of all political parties) dishonest reporting of the current state of affairs; in particular: “Meanwhile the city’s much loved parks have been shielded, which means they are all open and properly maintained.” Well, when was there ever a park in Brighton shut due to lack of maintenance? The answer is, of course: never – otherwise The “much loved” Level would’ve been shut down years ago and still be shut. And in terms of “proper” maintenance, “much loved” Queen’s Park is set on the same course as The  “much loved”  Level with the total lack of maintenance of the dry stone retaining walls being, doubtless, part of the same long term care strategy that was applied to The  “much loved” Level, i.e. the one where the council lets the basic fabric of a property fall into wrack and ruin and then looks around for handouts to restore it. [Didn’t work with the West Pier, ed.] So, as with The  “much loved” Level, be prepared for ” “much loved” Queen’s Park to suffer an emetic dose of Heritage Lottery Funding to blight an otherwise  “much loved” park.

“Green councillors have won…£1.2 million for the regeneration of the Level.” No, Greens, the host body, the Conservatives, did (admittedly with a great deal of help from your parasitic selves) – you just signed off on the crass project.

More smug photos of Jason Kitcat to contend with (kat and kream spring to mind). Still you can’t blame the Greens for trying to avoid a “Charles Kennedy” moment – though is it really wise to make Bill Randall Mayor? Doesn’t that entail a lot of “entertaining”? Perhaps that Chas K moment will entertain us after all.

And just keep banging on about what a great job the Greens are doing about the parking! Keep encouraging all those visitors to drive to Brighton, don’t deter them from using their cars! Refurbish that Regency Square car park! Now that you, the Greens, have had to lend £3 million of our money to the i360 you’ve got to protect the investment by funneling those polluting cash-cows down to the sea-front for years to come!

Ah, let’s,  yet again, take a moment to contemplate the meaning of Green Integrity. Mmm, that’s better.

One Response to GREENLEAF = compost.

    Reminds me of the old joke:
    POLI+TICS = POLITICS
    ‘POLI’ is a Latin word meaning ‘many’ or ‘multi’; ‘TICS’ means ‘blood sucking creatures’.

    Taking this theme a little further:
    By inserting the word ‘green’ in between ‘poli’ and ‘tics’, we can create an entirely new word:
    ‘POLIGREENTICS’ or ‘many green blood sucking creatures’.
    A quick google search reveals, amongst other alarming facts, that green blood sucking critters, “…can torment humans and animals and can transmit disease. They are all parasites of humans or other host animals and are abundant at certain times of the year”. [Around election times perhaps?]
    Turning to the plant kingdom, ‘sap’ is the word used for ‘plant blood’. Another quick google for ‘green sap suckers’ and we find a whole host of common garden variety pests. They too serve little purpose as, “They suck out the life juices and often inject diseases at the same time”.

    So there you have it. Whether it’s a case of many green blood suckers, or sap suckers, ‘poligreentics’ is bad for the environment.
    Therefore, by this logic, it’s easy to deduce that ‘The Green Party’ is bad for Brighton!
