  1. used to party in Brighton all the time in my youth. I can tell you some horror stories. None of them involed ghosts.

      But I bet they put the willies up you.

      1. one or two

  2. I have to say I was dismayed at Benjy’s shameless plugging of the Grindr App over two pages in The Standard last week, and NOT because of the revelation that he met his 23 year old beau on it (no, this critique is not motivated by jealousy, I assure you!).

    But it does raise concerns that PN is blurring the line between journalism and advertorials, and rather confirms the agenda behind the Grindr overkill of late.

    Of course PN needs advertising to survive, but can it please in future distinguish between what are genuinely impartial news stories and which are written to a PR agency’s brief?

    Nuff said, and in the meantime the search for an eligible Jewish boy with credentials my mother would approve of continues (sigh)…

      I think that might be your problem. Most people have no problem with Jewish people, but they have a BIG one with their mothers…

      1. Whatever her failings, Spanner, my mother still makes the best chicken soup ever.

          Doesn’t every Jewish mother?

  3. sorry, why is this on pink news?

      I asked the very same question (and comparing PN to the Brighton Tourist Board) a couple of hours before you did. For some unknown reason, my comment is no longer here. Funny that.

  4. Even the BBC News sites has features within it magazine section. Why can’t this site have something similar?

    1. The difference being that the BBC is not commercially driven and can therefore be trusted to give impartial coverage in its magazine-type features:- in contrast to the shameless propaganda that passes for its main news coverage of course.

    By all accounts Brighton is becoming a scarier place anyway, without the need for an exhibition.

    With violent attacks on the rise in the St James area (the gay neck of the woods..), be careful if and when you visit.

    My own thoughts are the ever increasing rise in the number of stag and hen parties are to blame, along with the fact that Brighton has always attracted some pretty nasty individuals and groups.

    The only ghosts that I’d like to see in the area of those of the local politicians, many of whom do nothing, but say lots.

    1. I agree, there is a growing increase in hate crime against LGBT in Brighton and it is just as homophobic as anywhere else.

    “Huge gay nightlife”…?

    I love Brighton but I wouldn’t call it ‘huge’…
