Thank goodness there are still plenty of sensible people around that support the likes of JBS Family Butchers.
I think the real nastiness of this affair comes from the “against brigade” of John Sawyer’s window displays.
If people are so sensitive about it, they do not have to look at it and as for suggesting that other businesses in Borehamgate will suffer is absolute nonsense. If people wish to go to Marimba, then they simply need to enter the precinct from Market Hill, but to suggest that people avoid the area is nothing short of blackmail.
If anything, perhaps more people will use the precinct, particularly after the national media coverage.
