We've seen today two public servant write a letter to the
main party leaders to tell the about the 'dramatic
deterioration' of the Peterborough.

It appears to be due to the sharp rise in migrants -
16,000 have arrived since rules on EU migrants changed in

- Schools have plummeted in the league tables
- health services are overwhelmed
- crime is up
- a drastic shortage in housing.

Personally I'm worried. I don't dislike immigrants, but
we should reconsider the amount we let in and ensure they
can looked after along with the rest of us.
daily mail article published today.

@Peter: Completely agree with the list you provide. I
live in Werrington and seen the area change rapidly over
the last few decades. It used to be a sleepy little
neighbourhood and now the council have crammed in so many
people it is having a serious effect on services - my
daughter only just got into the local primary and there
are kids there who don't even speak English... it's

Like you, I have nothing against immigrants but there
surely has to be a limit? I pass the job centre daily and
it amazes me how many Eastern Europeans are hanging
around, surely they can't be getting benefits after only
being in the country 2 minutes? 'Official' figures show
only 10,000 immigrants have arrived here in six years?
Don't make me laugh Mr. Brown...

That's really shocking!  I heard a radio-programme about the massacre being commemorated the other day. They were on their way to be aplogised to.

just curious

My lovely Polish plummer has gone home after installing the most lovely bathroom. My neighbour wanted the same work, but sadly was quoted 5 times as much by a local chap to do the same.

God was drunk when he made me, but that's OK 'cause I forgive him.
