Mike is to visit the campsite in Victoria Gardens in Brighton with the BBC.
Mike has called on the campers in Victoria Gardens to leave, after clearly stating that long-term camping in public spaces as a form of protest is unacceptable. When families across Brighton & Hove are struggling to pay Council Tax, it would seem logical that everybody should at least pay their fair share, especially when extra services will be required to clean up the inevitable mess when the campers eventually leave.
Commenting, Mike said: “I’m looking forward to visiting the campsite with the BBC tomorrow. The point of the protest was made long ago, it’s now just about a group of lazy campers hanging around for a fun time in front of our Royal Pavilion. This is not something that the public should have the pay for or put up with. Hard working taxpayers have had enough of these freeloaders.”
