travelers causing grief. again. what else is new? read this one.

Here we fuckin go again. 

A sensitive issue. That means that liberal geeks are involved. Remove the liberal geeks and start running Britain as a country again instead of as a failed Goldenage Of Aquarius lefty liberal marxist socialist utopia. Start with our current liberal geeks in charge, Cameron and Clegg then work downwards though the government, the BBC, the local councils and anywhere else they’re infesting.

Rick, Lincs,

So what’s that all about?

It’s late, I’m not meant to be at the puter. I have the latest issue of a favorite computer magazine and a very good book and a new bottle of Bailey’s Irish BUT…
just before shutting down I needed to re-check something and caught this newest and maddening as in RCOB article.

Is there another word for DOOMED? I’ve used it to a point of loss of meaning. But damn it all, this place is ...  you know it is.

I’m posting the entire article.  For the pix use the link provided as always.
What a god damn freekin mess this place is.  I hope I’m not getting all worked up over something false here.  I do tend to anger over stuff like this very quickly.

Take a look for yourself.


Farmer who called 999 after gipsy death threats has her legal shotgun confiscated ‘in case she retaliates’

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
Last updated at 8:30 PM on 26th April 2011

Officers took 35 minutes to arrive after she was threatened with chainsaws and knives

A frightened farmer who called 999 after gipsies threatened to kill her was stunned when the police who eventually arrived told her they would confiscate her legally held shotguns.

Tracy St Clair Pearce, 50, was confronted by four men carrying a chainsaw and a knife, who warned her they would kill her cattle at her farm in Colchester, Essex.

She called police late on Good Friday to report the threat, but was left gobsmacked when officers took 35 minutes to get to her home, before telling her they would confiscate her shotguns.

The ordeal came just days after travellers set up an illegal camp on council land bordering Mrs St Clair Pearce’s home.
She has now lodged a formal complaint with police after claiming officers took more than half-an-hour to arrive following her terrified 999 call.
She said: ‘I am so angry and worried.
‘I could still get my throat slit in the middle of the night because that is what they threatened to do.
‘The animals are under constant surveillance now - it’s no way to spend Easter.’

Mrs St Clair Pearce’s furious brother, Stuart, added: ‘They obviously feel she is the threat to the travellers but she was the victim.
‘What I fail to understand is that the travellers feel that they are somehow protected by the law yet we do not feel like that.
‘I have spoken with a few of them and they tell me that is how they feel, like they are untouchable.
‘If they feel like they are protected, then they are going to act in that manner.
‘That is why these four young men felt it was OK to be in our field and to treat my sister in the way that they did.
‘I am in shock - I thought that the law in this country is here to protect people who live and work in their communities - not those who visit for a short while and think they are beyond the law.’


(Well sir, I guess you just thought wrong. Have another think.)

Mr St Clair Pearce said his sister had felt threatened but told the travellers ‘in no uncertain terms’ to leave her land or she would call the police.
He said: ‘They were being abusive and threatening a woman who was on her own in a field.
‘They told her they were going to slit her throat and the throats of our cattle and horses.
‘Does “I am going to slit your throat?” come into normal conversations?’

He said they had been visited by police more than 10 times since the Good Friday incident and made to feel as though they were the aggressors.
‘The officers have said it is wrong to confront them and that we should have turned our backs and called the police.
‘But when we did call the police they did not even arrive for half-an-hour. ‘When the police did arrive, they had this incredible attitude that somehow we were to blame.
‘I actually had to turn round and tell one young officer, “Excuse me, you are talking to the victims of crime here”.’

Mr St Clair Pearce said his sister was clearing ragwort from the field and using a knife to do so.
He thinks the travellers were incited by seeing the knife in his sister’s hand when she told them to get off her land.
He said: ‘My sister has grown up with a load of brothers, so she was not fazed when they started being aggressive towards her.
‘But there is only so much you can take and to be told you would have your throat slit and your animals throats cut is too much.
‘The officers were particularly interested in making sure that she did not have any firearms at the property.
Mr St Clair Pearce said since the incident his sister had voluntarily removed the guns from her property.
He also confirmed she did not use them at any stage to threaten the travellers.
The travellers were approached today and asked for a comment but refused.

The siblings run a rare breeds farm which homes unusual horses and rare Shetland cattle.
Essex Police have confirmed no arrests have been made in connection with the allegations of threats to kill, although statements have been taken.
At one stage last weeks there were 18 caravans illegally camped on the council-owned land although the numbers have been dropping gradually in recent days as the travellers move on.
The site has been earmarked for a legal travellers’ site but Colchester Borough Council has yet to open it.

Gerard Oxford, a Colchester councillor, went to support Mrs St Clair Pearce after the attack.

He said: ‘A woman, all on her own, phoned 999 after threats against her life and the police took 35 minutes to get there.
‘Then, at about midnight, the inspector asked for an assurance that we were not going to take any action ourselves.

‘The police decided to take statements and the next day, lo and behold, they could not find anyone responsible.’
Inspector Jim White of Essex Police said: ‘In order to prevent any public order incidents, and to keep members of the public safe, we obtained a warrant to remove firearms.

Gets a mite confusing at this point cos there wasn’t any actual “attack.” So either the Mail got it wrong or the councillor did. And the following sentence reads like a quote from the councillor but surely should belong to the brother since there isn’t any “we” with regard to that councillor. Or do I miss something here?
To be honest, the problems here with these gypos/travellers call em what you want, is so extensive, so expensive, so overall bad, that I’ve come to just automatically assume they’re to blame (since they generally are) any time a landowner or law abiding citizen raises an issue concerning them.

Oh yeah, the headline may be misleading. According to the story itself, she moved the gun before the cops got a chance to take it away.

Oh .. one final thing. Don’t you pull up weeds and stuff like that as opposed to cutting them with a knife? You need to get from the roots. No? Knife doesn’t do that, that I am aware.  But then, I don’t know a hell of lot about gardening or things of that nature.

  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.
