Criminal traveller scum at it again. Isn’t it time for a ,,,, solution to this scourge?

Last week sometime a politician in Eastern Europe, I can’t recall which one now, suggested a final solution to the gypsie/traveller problem in his country.
Of course, those two words conjure up images of history that aren’t very pleasant. To say the least. BUT ... you can see what a menace these folks are and what problems they cause wherever they go. Not just here in the UK.  And they do this because they know damn well they are pretty much safe from any sort of retaliation. Well, what if they no longer felt so safe?  Just one time, just once, a few hundred bodies showing that the public just was not going to put up with them anymore, and bingo. The problem solves itself, finally.  There’s your final solution without the usual images of camps and barbed wire.
A roundup or two, no more, and there goes your problem. Protesters? Oh sure. You’d have those.  Same solution. Another problem solved. Next?

Travellers seize on Bank Holiday to set up illegal camps
Travellers took advantage of the Bank Holiday weekend to set up camps at two West Country villages in military-style operations while council officials were on the extended break.

Residents looked on helplessly as a 50-strong gang brought in mechanical diggers and set about concreting over a meadow, fencing off plots and install portable toilets on a site at Newent in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire.

The district council failed to obtain an injunction to prevent the work which included creating sewerage systems and providing electricity and water supplies.

One villager, who did not wish to be named, described seeing earth-moving equipment knocking a hole through a hedge before lorries arrived carrying hardcore.

“I don’t think the British Army could do better,” he said. “Nobody wants them here because it’s an illegal operation, but our main gripe is with the council because we warned them almost half a year ago.”

According to locals, a syndicate of four travellers clubbed together to pay £65,000 for the land at Southend Lane last autumn, although there is no planning permission for it to be developed.

Another band of travellers also worked around the clock 40 miles away at the weekend to turn three acres of farmland in Cricklade, Wiltshire, into an illegal camp.

Kieran Westman, a local resident, said: “They’ve already hard-cored the whole field and they look like they are here for good.

“It was like a military operation. The council served a stop notice, but they ignored that and carried on. Now the place is a real eyesore.”

Peter Colmer, vice-chairman of Cricklade town council, voiced his “disappointment” at Wiltshire county council for not being pro-active in dealing with the problem.

Well now, until somebody wakes up to the fact that problems like this can only be dealt with fatally and finally, look for more of the same.
Uh ... come to think of it, isn’t that what I predicted the last time I reported on this vermin in a previous takeover? More of the same.

The most recent Government figures show that of 2,539 gypsy and traveller sites in south-west England, 893 do not have planning permission and 317 are facing legal action.

A spokesman for the Newent-based travellers, giving his name only as Richard, said: “There’s 50 men working here because we need somewhere to live. We don’t want to cause any trouble and don’t want to bother anybody.”

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Cricklade travellers refused to talk about what was happening there.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
