two stories, same outcome. some favored minority groups can break laws

It appears to be catching. The idea that no means yes and the taking of private land or public land not intended for the use these folks make of it. But then, the authorities enable them with idiot appeasement.  And this story is only one of two with the same sort of kid glove lets not offend attitude. The family in question here knew from the beginning that the land they were on was not a designated site for these vermin.  Plus, they are on the green belt.  Not that it means anything to them of course.

A TRAVELLER family has been told they can continue living on an unauthorised site in Corringham until August 2013.

At their meeting last night, Thurrock Council’s planning committee debated whether the family, who live in a mobile home at the end of Park Gate Road in Corringham, should be evicted or allowed to stay permanently.

The application to legalise the site was deferred in March because the committee was reluctant to follow officers advice and throw the family off the land.

Instead they asked officers to go away and investigate if there were any special circumstances that would allow the family, who have been living there since 2006, to stay.

Last night, officers said there wasn’t, and the report to the committee warned that approving the site, which is on green belt land, “would set a very dangerous precedent that could readily be repeated elsewhere in the borough”.

The site has been subject to enforcement notices since December 1995, and when the current owner bought the site a notice was in place saying it was not a designated traveller site.

Labour councillor Gerard Rice then came up with the idea to allow the family to stay until August 2013, when the council will be forced to find 87 more pitches for travellers in the borough, and look at whether or not to legalise the site then.

He said:” I would suggest that in this particular case that we give the family temporary permission.
“This would give the family some finite time there.”
Tory councillor Stephen Veryard agreed, he said: “I think we are in an awkward position. If they knew they had temporary permission for a year or so, I think it would give them peace of mind.”

But independent councillor Barry Palmer thought the committee should just make a decision one way or the other.
He said: “At the end of the day, we are subjecting this family to a considerable amount of distress, I would think, in that we keep prolonging it.”

Tory councilor Joy Redsell was in two minds about the application. 
She said: “ I agree with cllr Rice in principle, but I just feel that we are pushing this on and on and on.
“We’ve been given advice from officers which seems pretty clear to be honest.
“We are not standing up and being counted, and saying ‘this is how it is’.
After more debate the committee agreed to allow the family to say on site until August 2013 when the council carries out its regional spacial strategy.
A caveat was put in so that the temporary permission cannot go past that date.

TRAVELLERS

“we are subjecting this family to a considerable amount of distress”
Scuse me councillor but didn’t those vermin cause their distress by their illegal action? Oh, lets not talk about that. This is a protected minority and like one or two other favorite minorities, nothing is their fault.

I see the councillors and others here as being played in the movies.

Meanwhile, in a place referred to as a stockbroker belt village, travellers who illegally moved into a paddock in Waltham St. Lawrence, Berkshire in 2009, were told to leave by Friday, Aug. 19.  But wait … after a legal battle and a public inquiry, the Communities Secretary, Eric Pickles by name, ruled that the ten caravans now have until Feb. 2013.
Town council in this case says that’s not acceptable and will seek further legal advice to bring the removal date forward.  Lots-a-luck.
Meanwhile, people arrested for not just looting but merely picking things off the ground dropped by looters, are being arrested and some stiff jail time is being issued. I’m not defending them BUT, good grief. Travellers/Gypos steal land and houses and wreck property and?  Anything happening to them? Any arrests? Any penalties for law breaking?

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
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

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.
