In the head­lines for wrong rea­sons

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

JUST re­cently Peter­bor­ough has made the na­tional head­lines more than once.

Firstly, for be­ing the cap­i­tal city for mi­grants. It seems we now have al­most as many peo­ple from over­seas here as lo­cal born and bred English.

Se­condly, we now have the du­bi­ous rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing top of the ta­ble when it comes to mind­ing one’s own busi­ness – even to the ex­tent that if we drop down dead in the mid­dle of the city we could lie there for up to two hours be­fore any­one would en­quire whether or not we need help.

It’s a pity that when Peter­bor­ough is brought to the at­ten­tion of the me­dia na­tion­ally it is usu­ally some­thing detri­men­tal. AN­THONY B L MAR­TYN El­ton Road
