Brighton and Sussex students row over no.25 bus
Facebook has become the site of a battle between Sussex & Brighton students. The weapon of choice for both sides appears to the 25 bus; which has long been a lifeline for both universities. The original group ridicules Sussex campus and accuses its students of pomposity: as can be seen its self-descriptive statement “We have all endured their snooty attitudes and ridiculous attempts at retaliation to our chants so I say the time has come to take a stand”.
The petition was soon met with a near identical opposite; which not only uses the same picture of the 25, but copies the above text verbatim. Despite some extremely colourful language: it remains difficult to tell if these “petitions” contain any real malice, or if the whole thing is a bit of harmless banter.
