Letter: Appalled that a bunch of mindless idiots descended on our town

Date published: 11 August 2017

Dear Editor,

I was appalled that a bunch of mindless idiots descended on our town to preach hatred and retribution.

Why don't these people just leave us alone?

Our borough is fantastic and inclusive with a really strong community feeling, the last thing we need or appreciate is a pack of mindless idiots creating an atmosphere of hostility and intimidation.

We are a proud town, and proud of the fact all our different communities rub along well together.

We don't want outsiders trying to cause trouble and damage the excellent cultural relations we have here in Rochdale.

Please do us all a favour, and don't bother coming back; you are not welcome and will be treated with the derision you so richly deserve.
