OVER 60 per cent of the good folk of Redditch voted for BREXIT thereby telling the 10 per cent of the town’s population who come from the EU that they are not wanted here. The Poles, Czechs, Hungarians, etc, who have migrated here to live and work among us, pay their taxes, spend their money in our shops and enrich our culture.

Many of them speak better English than some locals I know.

Racism and xenophobia triumphed last week – and I am so ashamed of this town.
