OVER THE LAST TWO DECADES, one of Wisbech's most ardent campaigners has been Victoria Gillick. She came to nationwide attention when she challenged the rights of doctors to give confidential contraceptive advice to teenage girls without bringing parents into the loop.
She spoke at the controversial public meeting over immigration a couple of years ago. Now she has painstakingly compiled a report on how she sees immigration affecting Wisbech and the surrounding area. The information and statistics contained in the report are, she says, all via Freedom of Information requests. She has asked me to host the report on this blog, and I am happy to do so, but I make no claim over the accuracy of the statistics, and I neither endorse or refute her personal conclusions. The report is long and detailed, so it will be published in sections over the next week or so. I have put statistical information in blue font. The remainder are Mrs Gillick's own views. YOUR VIEWS ARE WELCOME, both for and against, and you can make them known via the contact form at the bottom of the blog, or via Twitter - https://twitter.com/wisbechevenmore
