THE public has voted against an anti-immigration march through Boston town centre.
Sixty-six people supported a plan to postpone the march for reconsideration rather than hold it in the near future in an incredibly close result of 66 votes to 64.
The vote was held following a public meeting in the town’s Assembly Rooms, where members of Boston Protest Group, police and Boston Borough Council gave their views on the issues caused by immigation and the effect a march would have on the town.
After tonight’s meeting, Boston Protest Group leader Dean Everitt said he was pleased with the way the meeting had gone, and he hoped the result of the vote would be the right decision for the town.
