This paper is obsessed with Eastern European crime. Please, let's just embrace their cultures and ways.

The Police and the Courts have. They don't even deport them! _ a real lesson in liberalism for you all!

After all, who gives a stuff about the elderly these days, we are even happy for them to freeze to death! Strange priorities, but heh! - who are we to argue????

As if you said who cares about the elderly.. It's more who cares about what happens to the eastern European. Don't come over here if your commit crimes like that. They deserve more than just deportation but hey, 99% of eastern Europeans are let off with their crimes as our government are too scared to stick up for our country and punish them with real punishments like they would any English person. Deportation and more should be encouraged. D
