Have your say

It’s nice to read that Julie Dore has responded to the 300-strong petition calling for Sheffield to do more to welcome more refugees into the city,but just when is she going to respond to the thousand of Sheffielders who don’t want any more?

We who live on the council estates see two out of three empty properties go to immigrants.

I would like to know what the ratio of immigrants and refugees to local people should be as the balance seems to be swinging.

Just when are the council going to give homes to these Syrians in Whirlow, Dore, or Totley?

We all know the answer is never, it’s the estates that have to live with them.

I just wonder just how many of the 300 petitioners actually live on council estates?
