THIS town of ours is a wonderful place.

I spend much of my time in the town centre, having a coffee in Café Nero and watching life go by.

And I see people from different lands such as Italy, Czech Republic, Poland, Spain, Romania, North Africa and many more.

It is a great credit to this town for giving such a warm welcome to them.

They work hard, paying our government taxes and spending their money in our shops.

It’s wonderful to hear so many different languages being spoken around here.

I say thank you to Warrington that we are able to welcome them, as they are not entitled to any of our local and country benefits.

For all who sit there pontificating, objecting to their presence and disagree with this sentiment, well remember the words of former US President JF Kennedy: “Do not ask what your country or town can do for you, but what you can do for your country or town.”

One last thought, as President Trump said: “In life, it doesn’t matter if you win or lose, as long as you win.”
