I see from the BBC website that:
Travellers at Dale Farm in Essex have vowed to resist eviction by locking themselves to property on the site.
Let me get this straight. These people are 'Travellers', and they are protesting about being made to move on because they want to stay in the same place where they have built a permanent, static community.

This is a new definition of 'travelling' of which I was previously unaware.


  1. It promises to be an interesting week, since it seems all the sensible travellers have now indeed left, and the die-hard agitators are now running the show!

  2. According to the Beeb, the council can no longer speak to the 'residents' - they have to speak to the celebrity supporters, who have taken over the dialogue. Come the revolution ...

  3. If they really want to "travel" let them build proper sites (on land with suitable planning permission). Other caravan users have to make use of these, but of course, they aren't "ethnic minorities"...

    Rather than try and evict these idiots I have a better idea - they have built reinforced walls around the site, so simply make sure that they can't get out, and cut off the power and water! They will soon be wanting to escape...

  4. It's the classic 'one law for them' situation. If you or I break planning regs, the law has no hesitation in pulling the offending building down, by force if becessary. Unless you are either a) a 'minority' of some kind, or b) not a soft target. Those who play by the rules get shat on - yet again.
