War veterans out … Travellers in as PC Pinheads kick the Navy Vets out in favor of illegals.

This isn’t a follow up to the article from a day or two ago. This is yet another in a long list of outrages committed against native Brits or veterans groups and sometimes against white, middle aged middle class taxpayers.  Yeah I know ...  looks like the usual right wing extremest viewpoint, where’s my pointy hood.

The fact is, it is not extreme at all and many Brits (and not just white middle class either) are feeling the pc pinch more and more.  But I’m getting off the subject.

This article is so typical of what’s happening here I can’t but feel some fear for my own country, where more and more I read or get emails from ppl telling me about some screwball plan the lefties have in place.  Or want to put in place.

My sincere worry for this country also consumes me and the line here about England’s “GREEN BELT” is worrisome in the extreme.  The Green Belt is exactly that and it has been treasured by generations who tried to keep it that way. But these folks don’t care about that and make no mistake, they do know about the green belt and they do know it IS NOT LEGAL to park yourself there and live there. They just don’t care because what the heck, they have lawyers and they have apologists who make it easy for them to ignore laws.

This is an island as I always remind people. You can only pave over and plow up so much before you have no more.  And that isn’t chicken little thinking at all.  It simply takes enough people to ignore the problem and soon the problem and the belt will be no more. And that would be damn sad!

You can read for yourself ...

War veterans’ clubhouse is handed to travellers

Royal Navy veterans are being kicked out of their clubhouse so the land around it can be used as a travellers’ camp.

The former servicemen say the decision signals the death knell for their association which was formed 76 years ago.


The local council says that Whitehall diktats oblige it to find a home for the travellers who are illegally occupying green-belt land.

Eight traveller families have been granted homes under the £100million government plan to house 25,000 gipsies and travellers on hundreds of new and upgraded sites around the country.

Eight itinerant families will now be able to move on to the site at Northfleet, near Gravesend in Kent.
The clubhouse on the land had been leased by the local branch of the Royal Naval Association for three decades.

John Down, the club’s chairman and a Korean War veteran, said: ‘I’m so angry we are being treated like this. We have 160 members who all did their bit.
‘We risked life and limb for this great country that we wholeheartedly believed in. Now we are being treated like dirt, turfed out so that traveller families can move in.

‘We’ve paid our taxes all our lives and are still doing so. What have these people done? This country has lost the plot. It will be our death knell if we have to move.’

John Richards, another club member, said: ‘Someone needs the courage to say enough is enough.
‘This land was given to the people of Northfleet for sport and recreation. Part of our club houses the changing rooms for the football fields next door. There is a community here and the club is the glue that holds it all together.’

A govt. official has announced the first 43 locations where £21.6 million will be spent building new sites and says the programme will reduce the disturbance caused by illegal traveller camps

The clubhouse is used by Royal Navy veterans and their guests and for fundraising functions.

Tory-run Gravesham Council granted planning permission for the travellers to move to the grounds on condition that its officers find an alternative home for the association.
Mike Snelling, council leader, said: ‘We will not abandon the Naval Association.’

He added that talks with the association about a new home were still going on.
The travellers had been threatened with eviction for illegally building homes on their land at nearby Sole Street.
They refused to move but - following a £30,000 public inquiry - an agreement had been reached for them to move to the clubhouse site by October.

Leslie Christie, a Labour councillor, said none of the 300 locals who responded to the consultation process supported the proposal.
Hazel Blears, the Communities Secretary, recently announced 43 locations where £21.6million will be spent building traveller sites or expanding existing ones.
She said the programme will reduce the disturbance to neighbours.

But the move is being opposed by campaigners.

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.
