Radio reporter hits the nail on the head

Have your say

I wonder how many Sheffielders heard John Humphries’ report on the Roma in Page Hall on Friday morning on Radio 4?

And I wonder what those who live there now think of their local councillor Mrs Richards who appeared to make every effort to stop her local constituents talking to Mr Humphries about their concerns.

He, however, listened to them and understood in his final statement that people were wondering why their lives should be affected for years while people integrate into their community.

This does not make them racist.

But he could see that they feel they are on the front line of a European political project and had not asked to be there.

So a radio reporter hits the nail right on the head while our political elite both at local and national level bury their heads.

What a disgrace.
