    People fight for all kinds of reasons, even silly ones, like who is the best football team! I was atb a football match and the man in front of me was hit in the face by someone running past. No reason to do that at all apart from being a thug!! I agree with you, it is not acceptable at all to fight.

    Sometimes they fight because of being drunk, there are many reasons. We need to make sure these people are dealt with accordingly by the Police, and get the help they need within their communities.

    Hi sjp

    People fight because of frustration and it’s a way that some people express themselves. It is far better to negotiate with someone and come to some agreement than fight.

    Fighting isnt really appropriate in a civilised community. Basically that is the role of a councillor in a way, win by debate rather than ‘handbags at dawn’ ;o)

    Just want to say that I noticed you are in Y6, I wish you luck in your final year at primary school.

    Thanks and regards. Gary.
