Dear anonymous guest,
I do not resent the pedlars - I said that they were a problem. It is not the selling that causes aggravation, it is the size of some stalls and pitches (and maybe the quantity). This causes bad feeling between pedlars, performers, audience and motorists (when pedestrians spill onto the road), especially on the Sunday when the morris teams all dance. I realise that it is a free world but since the council purports to control the pedlars by licencing, then maybe they should exercise that control by removing the unlicensed pedlars and making sure that the licensed ones don't take up an unreasonable amount of space. Compromise is the name of the game.

PS I am actually a mate of one of these pedlars I apparently resent so much.
PPS Sorry about rising to troll bait. Bad habit.
