Well they’re back again but ooops. They never really left. Travelers in the news and it’s all bad.

Very late starting today.  Here we go again. This time with two articles and photos on the same tired but RCOB subject.
Yeah. It’s them again and theeeeeey rrrrr baaaak!  Uh huh. Who else?

Reminder to Peiper ... don’t use the ‘G’ word. 

So then, what we have here are ants in human form.  Neat story isn’t it?  One nest knocked down but almost immediately another started.

RAID anyone?

Gypsy convoy invades site… just hours after council evicts travellers following six-year battle costing £400,000

A convoy of gypsies pitched up at a controversial traveller’s site - just hours after a group had been evicted following a lengthy legal battle costing £400,000.

South Cambridgeshire District Council officials had just finished bulldozing three illegal pitches when eight more caravans rolled on to an adjoining field.

The demolition action was the result of a six-year legal battle to remove illegally camped travellers at the notorious Smithy Fen site in Cottenham, Cambridgeshire.
At last: Bulldozers tear down the illegal camp at Smithy Fen following a six-year battle, costing £400,000. But just hours later a new group of travellers moved straight in

At last: Bulldozers tear down the illegal camp at Smithy Fen in Cambridgeshire after a six-year battle, costing £400,000…

Hours later, a new group of travellers moved in.

An SCDC spokesman said officers could have done nothing to stop the travellers moving in on Wednesday as they could have been visiting relatives.

She said: ‘Our enforcement officers have been at the site to monitor the situation and will keep it under close observation. 

‘As we understand, there are eight caravans on two authorised pitches. 

‘We will work with the community and take a balanced approach. It is possible that they are just passing through and will move on.’

She claimed there were only eight caravans in total and they had moved on to two separate pitches - therefore only exceeding capacity by two caravans per pitch.

Campaigners have accused the Government of jeopardising councils by failing to give them the power to deal with people who illegally occupy land.

Robin Page, former presenter of One Man And His Dog and independent councillor for SCDC, said the Government was too ‘politically correct’ to act.

He said: ‘It’s quite simple. The law should be the same as it is in Ireland. Illegal occupation should be a criminal offence, not a civil offence. Then there would be no problem.

‘As soon as anybody goes on to land where they are not entitled to be, police would have the power to arrest them and confiscate their caravans.

It is should be a universal law applied to everybody. But New Labour is so politically correct it is spineless.

Like insects these scum pop up everywhere simply because .... they can.  and the taxpayer get to pay for it all. Hey. Great system.
It works for some.

Note to Peiper. Don’t mention the ‘G’ word. 


Meet the gipsy family terrorising an entire street

There are neatly trimmed privet hedges, rose beds and top-of-the-range family cars parked outside all but one of the houses on this broad and leafy avenue in the outskirts of the North London commuter belt.

In the peace and quiet of a summer’s evening, family life in Totteridge — where professional couples pay up to £1million for a substantial home a stone’s throw from good schools, shops, restaurants and trains direct to the city — appears to be a picture of idyllic suburbia.

That is, until the Connors arrive.

You hear them before you see them.

To a cacophony of effing and blinding, a family of nine, packed like sardines into a dusty seven-seater people-carrier, pull up between the piles of rubbish and broken paving slabs on the driveway.

Little hands poke out of the windows with their middle fingers raised defiantly aloft.

John and Serena Connors and their seven children — an Irish traveller family — have been in residence at this five-bedroom £1million home since February, when they were moved by Barnet Council into privately-owned accommodation under the Local Housing Allowance scheme.

The scheme was introduced by the Government a year ago to encourage private landlords to take on council tenants in a bid to alleviate a housing shortage.

Since then, there have been several cases highlighted by the Daily Mail where families, living off benefits, have been rehomed in some of the most exclusive and expensive neighbourhoods in Britain — all at the taxpayers’ expense.

The Connors don’t pay any rent, of course. The £2,400 a month it costs to lease the house is covered by their housing benefit.

And while that fact is galling enough for those neighbours who work hard to pay their hefty mortgages in this desirable postcode, they could have lived with it had the Connors themselves been a little easier to live with.
‘They screamed: “You don’t who you’re messing with”’

Instead, since the day they arrived, they have terrorised this formerly peaceful neighbourhood and made life so nightmarish for their neighbours most are now too scared to speak out for fear of reprisals from the traveller community.

However, their next-door neighbours the Kaye family, who have arguably borne the brunt of the Connors’ campaign of intimidation and anti-social behaviour, are so sick of them — and so outraged by the situation — that they feel it’s time to take a stand.

‘They’ve screamed at us: “You don’t know who you’re messing with. You upset one traveller family, we’ll all come after you.” But what option do we have?’ says Hannah Kaye, an office administrator and mother of three boys.

‘I have never done anything to provoke these people. I don’t want any trouble. We have lived in this house for 18 years. It’s been a happy home for us. But since they arrived, I have been literally sick with worry.’

This is not snobbery. As Hannah’s solicitor husband Jeremy puts it: ‘We don’t have a problem living next door to anyone. We don’t care who pays their rent or what they do for a living as long as they’re decent neighbours. But these people aren’t even decent human beings.’

This is not just the matter of the piles of rubbish accumulating all over the property, including on the flat roof. It has nothing to do with the beaten-up van that sits on the driveway or even the filthy language that can be heard spilling from the Connors’ permanently open windows at all hours of the day and night.

It’s about a family with a staggering disregard for other people and their property, and even less concern for the burden they place on hard-working, taxpaying families like the Kayes.

  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.
