"People’s concern about the bill and what it contains is obviously substantial enough for them to be doing this. Chichester isn’t any different to any other city. We still have concerns and doubts and issues about what the government is doing. Chichester may look as if it’s a true-blue city but, actually, there are other opinions, there are other points of view and that’s what people tend to forget about Chichester."- Phil Wilson, pictured right
