taxpayer monies to protect gypsies from hearing abuse from motorists.

batbat

I had something else of a horrid nature to post first today, and then ran across this. The usual lunatic loony tune kind of thing that had this person post a comment on the Mail’s comment page.  “Daftland” How appropriate.  Hard to understand how grownup and educated people can be so ?? I’m looking for something beyond stupid.
Hey ... why the heck should I worry?  As I keep on saying, the Brit taxpayer is a wealthy individual with tons of cash to throw away.
If they aren’t, someone needs to inform the folks who spend their money of that fact.  Cause I don’t know too many Brits who feel very wealthy.  The town and city councils that spend taxpayer money must believe they are at the rate they come up with new things to spend on.  Ho-hum.

Hey .. talk about the enemy within.

Another one from Daftland,keep them coming they are hilarious the next one sillier than the ones before

Council wants £500,000 to erect sound barrier to stop gypsies hearing abuse from motorists

A council is planning to spend up to £500,000 building a noise barrier beside a dual carriageway after a group of travellers complained about the sound of passing vehicles and abuse from motorists.

Around 50 people who have moved onto the camp beside the A14 near Milton in Cambridgeshire say their lives are being made a misery by the constant rumble of traffic.

(uh huh. And just who decided to set up camp and live on that site? )

They also claim they are being victimised by passing lorry drivers who are beeping their horns, flashing their lights and shouting obscenities.

The barriers could be installed when the dual carriageway is improved during a major project beginning next year.

But Tory-run South Cambridgeshire District Council insist the travellers shouldn’t have to wait that long in such an ‘uncomfortable place to live’.

The TaxPayers’ Alliance yesterday branded the plans ‘a farce’.

Spokesman Mark Wallace said: ‘Given that the residents of this site are self-declared travellers, it is amazing that they do not simply move on somewhere else if they don’t like the fact they are living next to a dual carriageway.

‘There is very little reason why taxpayers should bear a massive bill because of the surroundings people have chosen for themselves.

‘If you choose to buy a house next to a dual carriageway then you know what to expect. It should be no different in this case.’

The camp, known as Blackwell, was opened as a transit site for travellers in the 1970s but became an official council-run facility in 1993 and home to a settled community.

The A14 is situated on a grassy embankment above the site.

The council has already secured a £15,000 grant to widen and improve the entrance to the camp but is applying to the Government for more money to build the barrier.

Nick Wright, the councillor responsible for planning, said: ‘It’s such a noisy place to live. When you go down there it’s almost a job just to have a conversation.

‘Their homes obviously don’t have any double glazing or sound proofing. The travellers hear everything as truckers hurl abuse from their windows and blow their horns.

‘They can’t always distinguish what is being shouted but they know it’s negative.

‘I just hope this publicity does not encourage the lorry drivers who do not blow their horns to start hooting them as they pass.’

Sebastian Kindersley, the leader of the Lib Dem opposition, admitted if the noise barrier was installed this year it would only be a temporary measure until the start of the A14 redevelopments.

And he hinted the council would dip into its own reserves if it failed to win a grant for the project.

‘If the Highways Agency says our demands are impossible we will tell them to get knotted,’ he said.

‘The travellers live between a motorway and a rubbish dump - it must be pretty desperate and something should be done urgently. They are entitled to their privacy.’

The National Romani Rights Association(CORR) blamed the council for choosing a poor site in the first place.

Chairman Basil Burton said: ‘As far as I’m concerned it’s disgusting that the local authorities have placed a gypsy site next to a busy motorway in the first place. But this barrier should be better than nothing.’

Three years ago it emerged South Cambridgeshire District Council had spent close to £1million on attempts to evict travellers from Smithy Fen in Cottenham, one of the country’s biggest and most notorious illegal camps.

Homeowners in the area have complained of soaring crime, threats and anti-social behaviour.

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.
