I AM sorry to say I have to agree with Malcolm Moss, Wisbech has changed a lot within the last year. A lot of conversation you hear around town is foreign.

I would not class myself as racist as there are good and bad people of all nationalities, but I have come to realise that a lot of these visitors do not mix with local people. I also believe that Latvians have a completely different culture/morals to ours and this can lead to many problems in the future as communities divide up.

Homes that multi-let will end up run down as families move out or decide also to multi-let, then you have around four times more people populating an area that is not designed to take that amount of people.

The only people who seem to benefit from this invasion are the people behind big businesses. There are many advantages to bosses who employ agency staff, no holiday pay, easy to get rid of people they don't want, no redundancy fees, low wages, need I go on?. But I feel if a local business needs 200 staff to make that business run all year round, then those 200 people should be full time local people, and agencies should only be used for busy periods.
