      We were in central Brighton today for the first time in ages.

      It really is a shithole.

      Quite how anyone can be possessive over such a dump is beyond me.
      Have you been to Stoke?

      The homeless problem certainly isn't unique to Brighton and Hove, although we are a bit of a magnet for those unfortunate to be homeless and therefore it is magnified here. I like street art but I have to agree, the tagging really is getting out of control. I love the city, and will always defend it because there are so many great things about it and lovely areas, but the city centre really has become blighted it. It does seem now that every time a shop space becomes empty, overnight it's covered in graffiti. Part of the problem I guess (apart from the taggers themselves obviously!) is that, these days, there are more empty shop spaces. It's a shame, especially being such a tourist hot spot. Do wish the countless hen and stag dos would f### off though.
      Always a depressing site over the weekend seeing groups of (usually mostly massively overweight) hens and stags rampaging around the city centre with no shame

      I’m fine thanks. I had a fast 16m run to knock off this morning, which I have just finished, so I had my feet up sipping water last night. Shower, breakfast then I’ll ready myself for today’s feast of football....this time with a few beers.

      Air rifles at the ready....taggers are fair game. They are hardly going to report being shot at whilst vandalising property.
      Not the first suggestion of vigilante action that I've heard. Perhaps the authorities should act before somebody else does.

      A bit of tagging has led to calls of vigilante action and revelling in the deaths of three young men.... **** me!

      Ultimately, it all comes down to cash, not enough police on the streets,a CPS under budget and having to decide in the public interest which cases it can pursue, not enough prison space so offenders are given lenient sentences and council services stretched to breaking point across the board meaning cleaning up vandalism is a very low priority.

      I think the mistake was made when some walls were allowed to have semi-official graffiti art allowed to remain which seemed an encouragement for more graffiti. The problem will remain a problem because as a society, we are fractured and weak.

      Pathetic whataboutery.

      Do I take from this you expect Brighton to be compared with Stoke in further discussions about the embarrassment you live in?

      This needs to be bounced as this is a huge issue in our city that needs to sorted out. Is there anybody out there taking action?
