Well it has taken ten years but at last the police have begun to evict the gypsies from their illegal camp at Dale Farm, Basildon, Essex. What I do not understand is the sympathetic tolerance which the mainstream media applies to these people.
The bottom line is that they built an illegal camp on green belt land. I couldn't do it so neither can they! Somehow however, these people have been able to fight eviction for ten years? It is an astonishing trail of legal wrangling and of course somebody has made a packet out of it.
I think however, that it goes further...they are called 'travellers' but don't want to travel. Everywhere they settle, even for a few days, the local area is trashed. They always manage to generate amazing amounts of foul smelling rubbish. Their children and animals are invariably feral and crime statistics rocket!
Generally speaking the British people are fairly tolerant but anyone encountering these instantly recognizable charabancs fears the worst. The gypsies are 'takers' they never give anyone anything and just 'take' what they need. I would happily see all of them back on the boat to Ireland and then we will only have to sort out their Rumanian counterparts currently featured on BBC trafficking children so that they can beg on the streets of London. Lovely people!
