As residents of Fir Vale we were astounded by Nick Clegg’s reported comments in the Sheffield Star on Tuesday.
Residents are angry and totally baffled that EU migrants who are contributing nothing but a constant stream of anti-social behaviour can be given benefits by the state. They are not working and have no realistic chance of finding work. Benefit tourism is not a “local issue” but has been caused by the abject failure of central government to control access to the welfare state.
We are very tolerant people, from many ethnic backgrounds and faiths, and we do not like to be lectured on tolerance by a sanctimonious, middle class liberal. The situation in Page Hall is intolerable – perhaps you should try living here before preaching on the subject?
