Whether it be British, Polish, Russian or Martian the fact is the crime rate and nature of crime is becoming a problem in Boston.

Perhaps we could have a Polish or Russian officer on the beat.

Perhaps with the dire lack of funding we are lucky to have any officer on the beat.

When I joined " The post office " in 1974 they had just stopped morning inspection, every postie had to line up to make sure they were in uniform to meet the public.  One postie got sent home for wearing brown shoes.  I do not know what the inspector would of made of KON's legs ;) ;)

I think the main thing that riles me is the way our little town has changed over the years.

Being dragged up in Boston during the 50's and the 60's I have first hand knowledge of the changes ( not always good ) to our little market town.

Perhaps the town centre now resembling the centre of Prague, Warsaw or Moscow, twangs the nostalgia strings.

Over the years various councils and planners have decimated our heritage.  My pet hate being the scar that is John Adams way, that has split the town down the middle.

I yearn for the typical Saturdays of my youth.  Morning spent at the leo Saturday club at the old Odeon cinema.  Then down west st to Jimmy Ward for a Sarsaparilla ( I think this is correct spelling).  Then home for fish and chips ( dad owned a chip shop ) then join another 2,000 souls down Shoddy's Lane.

I yearn for Sharpes fruit and veg delivery via horse and cart.  I yearn for collecting coke from the gas works in an old pram. I yearn for the caffs that seemed to be on every street corner, Rosies caff,  Spic and Span, Cherry corner , The beacon and even Tony's caff. I yearn for the livestock market on a Wednesday.  I yearn for the pop factory. I even yearn for old Sargent Flynn the bobby who used to clip me around the ear.  Saturday nights at the best venue in the country ( The Glider ).

I am not racist, but I think something as to be done to stem the flow of migrant workers, this town is not big enough, that is a fact.

I am sure you manage if it was a big influx of say Yorkshiremen?

You may have heard of the EU and the free movement of labour  (which is an economic benefit) perhaps?

If your own personal taste is bothered how about moving to Latvia or join the many Englsih criminals in the south of Spain.  xxxx :-*

Is that why you moved away Mark? did  the sweaty grape crushing feet of the Boston vineyards upset your delicate palate.  Personally, a 15.7% influx of Yorkshiremen in Boston would send shivers down my spine eeehbygum ;)

We have to face it, they are here to stay.

I have no problem with that.  What I have a problem with, is people who say there is no problem.

We are a little market town and we are not able to cope with the big influx.

Anyone who has an opinion on the subject is branded a racist.

We can not take the head in the sand attitude, there is a problem and 1.7 million households did not send their census form back.  37% East Midland households did not send them back.  So how many live in houses of mutiple occupation?

With an increase of 15.7% in Boston ( official ) and no extra money to pay for our already over- stretched services it is no wonder people take a dim view on migrant workers.

This may sound a bit extreme, but if all migrant workers were made to carry their passport, then asked to show it on demand. I would think in no time all migrants that are here illegally would be identifyed.  Then the home office then could take action against these people.

I have no objection to anyone willing to work and create a better life for them and their families. It is the people that have come here illegally and rob innocent people that I object to.

I will wait for the replies with interest, but what I say is correct, perhaps the the way I want to remedy it may be a bit extreme.

The bank of Qwerty ;)  I like it ;D

hi all

the debate about the impact of foreign nationals goes on and there will always be both positive and negative views of having them here

i've noticed on another thread there is differing views concerning a recent incident involving (allegedly) a foreign national so i've decided to begin recording the figures of all the court cases dealt with by boston magistrates and reported in the boston standard and/or the boston target

i will not be recording anyone who's been referred to lincoln crown court

so starting from last weeks papers (wednesday july 18th 2012)

there were 5 crimes committed by foreign nationals all of which were men
there were 4 crimes by locals/brits of which two were men and two were women

foreign crimes = 55.5%
locals crimes   = 45.5%
On the latest official figures it shows that Boston's population has increased by 15.8% since the 2001 census.  We all agree that the majority of this rise is by migrant workers.  So on the working out above 55.5% of crimes is being committed by 15.8% of the population of Boston.  I rest my case

The fact he was a not English is not the issue.  If he was a ginger haired dwarf with one eye that would be the description.  I was warning people that if this low life approached beware.

I do not want to drag up a racist type thread.  But this is relavent to this post.

GHM's mate who is recovering from a stroke was walking his dog when he was approached by a foreign national.

This low life offered to sell him a gold looking ring.  He refused and tried to walk away ( remember he is recovering from a stroke ).  He then produced a gold looking curb chain and proceded to put it around the man's neck.

He told him in no uncertain terms to remove it, which he did.

When he got home and looked in the mirror he saw this low life had taken his expensive 22 carot gold chain and substituded it with a worthless one.

This is not a racist thread but a warning to all not to be duped :(

Will anyone be awake to watch it?

Tonight's England/Italy match is the 16th of the tournament and we haven't seen a 0-0 yet, while I feel we are capable of getting a positive result here and progressing to the semis, at 6/1 with Ladbrokes the 0-0 bore draw over 90mins looks the bet tonight.

I agree ;)

I like the way your think, it's flawed but if ever England get over the half way lineyou never know.  Will anyone be awake to watch it?

John Beck has been appointed as Kettering's new manager on a two-year contract.

You have to feel sorry for the Kettering fans. First they were moved away from the town. Then they were demoted two divisions. And now they've got two years' worth of unattractive hoofball to look forward to.

A bit like us really :o

Talking of Linos, what happened to Chris Wade?
