Sir Beachy Head says...

All those things are likely to happen but not definately. It cannot be guaranteed, as we only have the present moment in which to live, the future is just our imagination using memories of past events to try and predict events to come. This is a common error in mankind.

As my old chum Euripides wrote. 'No one can confidently say that he will still be living tomorrow.'

Massive queues outside Harry Ramsdens and the ice cream kiosks while the footprint of the former Waterfront building remains deserted.

Echo, please don't suggest people 'move along a bit' - if visitors want to bunch up together around the piers then that's fine by me; I'd rather stay away from their empty beer cans and weed smoke.

The council will throw tonnes of 'surface dressing' over our appalling roads to hide all the worn bits, it won't set because of the heat, and will stay soft, chipping everyone's cars.

S+D Leisure will find another way of charging idiots ridiculous amounts of money for a load of old crap.

Another council project will be discovered to have people on the books whose presence is a massive conflict of interest.

The price of petrol will go up.

Another pub will become a Tesco or similar,

The council still won't have had the flag pole on top of their office fixed.
