FEAR FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY OF LAWBREAKERS, CLOSES PUBLIC PARK FOR DURATION

Well, here’s a newish twist to a maddening problem suffered by Brits, along with much else.

Yeah, we are still on the gypo/traveller thing but this screw-up deserves an award of some kind.

You know, there are things it’s hard to avoid here and usually, in fact always, the folks affected are the ones who pay the bills.
Town councils are at wit’s end we read. And cash strapped.  I don’t know where I’m going with this bit of insanity so before I dig the verbal hole any deeper,
check out this bit of stupid.

This is what happens when things like Health and Safety become a religion.  And keep in mind, what the vermin have done is not new. As is their usual habit, once again they set up camp illegally, this time in a public park, which means the folks who live here can’t use it.  Question comes to mind.  How long will it take to remove this group because, it was the council that let them in thus setting up the problem that is sure to follow.  Because now, even the cops can not remove them.  Even tho they are not legal.

Great system in place here. Innit?

Council locked park gates to keep out travellers… then let them in anyway because of elf ‘n’ safety

Brighton and Hove Council put gate across the entrance to Wild Park at start of the summer
But travellers kept driving round it and causing obstructions
Council has now opened the gate because it causes ‘risk to road users’
Critics brand decision to open the gate ‘madness’

By NEIL SEARS

After problems with travellers trying to set themselves up in a public park over the summer, a council took the step of locking the main gates to keep them out.

But, as a fresh convoy of 30 caravans arrived, such common sense was clearly no match for the warped logic of health and safety.

Astonishingly, officials decided to unlock the vehicle access gate – because they were worried the intruders might hurt themselves during their efforts to get in.

The travellers duly made themselves at home – and because the council voluntarily let them in, police have lost all powers to evict them.

Taxpayers will instead now have to fund a lengthy civil court battle to throw out the intruders from Wild Park, on the outskirts of Brighton.

The farce emerged in a leaked confidential email by Brighton and Hove Council to councillors. It said: ‘After the initial trespass was reported, Sussex Police highlighted the dangerous nature with which the group were accessing the field.

‘As such a decision was taken to open the access gate to reduce the risk to road users and to stop the occupants from crossing the pavement to access the road.’

Local residents say they are now unable to use the park, Brighton and Hove’s largest local nature reserve, and fear it could become ‘a new Dale Farm’, the illegal Essex camp of 1,000 travellers which cost millions of pounds to break up.

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.
