one problem and two different ways to face it.

A tale of two towns.  Well, one is a city and the other is a village.

I keep promising myself I won’t bother with this kind of post, and here I am again. Sometimes, some things can’t be avoided.

Take a look.

Council to blow £2.5MILLION to turn this squalid travellers’ site into a deluxe park. Caravans will have their own driveway, lighting and soundproofing and cost the same as a first-time buyer’s property

Critics said it would be cheaper to buy houses for the travellers in Bath
Gypsies moved onto the council-owned greenfield site five years ago
Lib Dem-controlled authority bizarrely claim building the site will save them money as they won’t have to keep moving the travellers along
The site is currently a muddy field with litter piled high

By Rob Cooper

A council is planning to spend £2.5million on a traveller site for just 13 caravans - which will cost as much as the average first time buyer spends to get on the property ladder.

Bath and North East Somerset Council will spend £190,000 ( $ 317,092.92 ) on each pitch on the green belt site while neighbouring properties sell for just £160,000.

Opposition councillors have slammed the project and insisted it would be cheaper to buy properties for gypsies to live in.

HERE, for the rest

However .... in another place with another group, a village decides to take the vermin on and not accommodate and appease.



Victory for villagers as gypsies are FINALLY told they will be evicted from illegal camp… but four-year battle has cost taxpayers £200,000

The Supreme Court has rejected pleas for the travellers to be allowed to appeal eviction ordered by the Court of Appeal
Gypsies moved on to site in ‘military-style’ operation overnight four years ago - after council offices had closed for the weekend
Group had argued that eviction would violate their children’s human rights
Council has spent £200,000 fighting the case since November 2009

By Lucy Crossley

A group of gypsies who used human rights laws to stay in their illegal camp for more than four years have finally been told to move on - leaving taxpayers with a legal bill of £200,000.

The 78 Irish travellers, who hail from just four families, had refused to budge despite facing three different courts, a planning inquiry, a council, and a battle by locals who accused the group of trashing their village.

Last October the camp in Hardhorn, Lancashire, who had flouted planning rules, appeared to have lost its case when they were told to move out by the Court of Appeal.

However, despite being given four months to quit the site without the chance to appeal, the group used a loophole to take their case to the Supreme Court claiming the eviction ‘violated’ the human rights of the 39 children living on the site in 60 caravans.

Now the Supreme Court has rejected pleas for the travellers’ to be allowed the right of appeal under a ‘point of law of general public importance’.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. 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.
