East­ern prom­ise

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Views -

The Hun­gar­ian gov­ern­ment has warned its ci­ti­zens that Pe­ter­bor­ough’s a no-go zone be­cause the au­thor­i­ties have lost con­trol be­cause of un­con­trolled mi­gra­tion. It is well doc­u­mented that the huge in­flux of mi­grants has caused prob­lems in the city, but MP Ste­wart Jack­son is right when he says the claim is silly. It did make me chuckle when coun­cil leader John Holdich re­sponded in in­dig­nant fash­ion. He said: “It’s a great shame that peo­ple who have never vis­ited Pe­ter­bor­ough choose to talk us down.’’ Err, John, I don’t think we want to be en­cour­ag­ing more peo­ple into our al­ready over­crowded city!
