    Which part are you most stunned by, to have a fair view of many opinions and get a debate going you may have to broaden your comment. I don't think anyone is right or wrong, but it is good to share feelings so that we may all be more tolerant towards each other.

    I'd agree with you Kevin open discussion and debate of issues is what this forum should be about. I do enjoy stimulating debate.

    I personally think the insulting part came when the councillors linked incomers to crime, thereby smearing a whole section of the community without any thought .
    On its own incomer is neither here nor there, linked to an open accusation of incomers and crime increase it becomes very insulting.
    The article also mentioned social housing, if correct that the councillors linked incomers crime and social housing in one sentence then effectively they are stigmatising one section of the community.
    That shows a worryingly bigoted view.

    I don't disagree with any of the above.

    I too am an 'Incomer', and use this to great effect when engaging in banter with the unsophisticated local savages, what!

    I'm sure my unsophisticated local savage friends would be ashamed to be represented by that community council, btw.

    Sorry Pete I couldn't help notice that you referred to some members on this forum in derogatory terms yourself. How do you rationalise your comments with your criticism of Wick Community Council?
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Well for starters my names not Pete but you should remember we use anonymous names for a reason so I'd appreaciate you not using first names even if they are wrong makes me feel you have that creepy stalker vibe going on !

    Secondly I'm not a member of a community council so not accountable and therefor not held to a higher standard.

    But when it's comes to you I have l'oreal moments I'm afraid.

    Because you're worth it

    Of course the number of reported crimes has gone up as the number of incomers has risen.
    There is more population, more people with enough bottle to report crimes, and more people expecting the law, and enforcement of, to apply to everyone.

    Well Pete it was a predictive text error, but it may prove more predictive than predicted!
