There’s been a lot of talk recently about the EU referendum, and quite rightly, there’s opinion on both sides of the campaign, but I just wanted to make sure that I made it puibllicly clear that I myself will definitely be voting to REMAIN, and here’s three reasons why: New citizens a.k.a migration, people from EU or non EU countries, or even from other parts of the UK for that matter, have enabled Peterborough City Council to collect record levels of Council Tax receipts, to spend on their services and reduce the impact of Tory Government budget cuts, given us record levels of employment in our city, providing qualified staff[…]
