Poole council to use cash allocated for transit sites to protect six open spaces against traveller camps

Bournemouth Echo: £231k 'lockdown': Poole council to secure six open spaces against traveller camps £231k 'lockdown': Poole council to secure six open spaces against traveller camps

POOLE is preparing to defend six of its most vulnerable open spaces against traveller camps.

The council voted to share £231,000 among six public open spaces to fund a variety of security measures ranging from mounds and hedges to posts, rocks and height restrictions.

Whitecliff, Baiter, Verity Crescent, Haskells Recreation Ground, Broadstone Recreation Ground and Branksome Recreation Ground are the areas deemed most at risk.

Last summer travellers played cat and mouse with the authorities, moving from site to site, with one particular group responsible for five out of the 14 encampments.

After the failure to find a temporary transit site to move travellers onto, Borough of Poole has now turned its sights towards protection.

However this is no quick fix as the environment overview and scrutiny committee’s recommendation went to cabinet last night with councillors deciding which measures are best for each site.

The first incursion last year was on May 23 on land adjacent to the Creekmoor park and ride, but travellers have arrived as early as March in previous years.

Cllr Tony Trent, chairman of the committee said before the meeting: “There was an urgency to getting some of the most vulnerable sites in Poole made more secure.

He added: “If there is any money remaining it will be prioritised towards the next most vulnerable sites that are close to children’s play area, sports facilities, and have suffered recent incursions.”

Jacqui Wilson, chairman of Branksome West Residents Association, who has been pushing for protection said: “It’s a brilliant idea.” She pointed out last year’s incursion cost the council around £1,500 – the same cost as protective barriers.

“And we might get some more extensive planting out of it. I shall be pushing for things to be in place by June,” she said.

In August last year 19 vans set up home on Branksome Rec for six days and court action was taken. Residents such as Hayley Smith, 29, are in favour of taking preventative measures.

“I think if it’s to protect it from greater damage it’s a worthwhile investment,” she said.

Shaun Robson, head of environmental and consumer protection said: “It is anticipated that some of these measures can be implemented reasonably quickly.

“Other options will take longer including the planting of hedges which cannot take place until the autumn. However, we will endeavour to complete these works as soon as we can.”

Branksome resident Mandy Smith, 52, who takes her grandchildren to play on the rec said: “I think this will help. If it stops them getting onto a quite popular piece of ground, go ahead. It needs to be done.”

Steve Ford, 49, who takes his children to play on the rec said: “There are not a huge amount of big open spaces around here. The more they can do to keep the travellers off the better it will be.”

Barbara Lankston, 65, from Parkstone, exercising her dog Katie at the rec said: “It’s absolutely 100 per cent a good idea. This is a lovely place. I come here in the car, it’s good for parking, children come to play, people walk through it to the shops.”

James Martin, 77, who walks his dog at the rec said: “They should put in a three ft railing fence all the way around and stabilise it into the ground so it can’t be pulled out.”

Don't know why they should - it wasn't the residents of Creekmoor or councillors of Creekmoor who caused the Planning Committee to reject the two proposed sites. Since when have the council ever listened to what residents want? The sites were rejected because the Planning Committee decided the two sites were totally unsuitable in terms of various safety aspects, wouldn't be used by the travellers and would be a total waste of any more council taxpayers money. They'd already wasted enough picking and spending money on the preparation of the two sites.
........
All that is the fault of the Planning Department for not looking at all aspects of the sites they suggested.

I would be interested to know where this figure of £231,000 has come from because I was actually there at last nights cabinet meeting when it was clearly stated that the money that was originally set aside for the transit site could not automatically be allocated to be used for prevention measures as this was a separate thing altogether. Though I am pleased that prevention is now a course of action being followed, as it should have been in the first place.

On this occasion I am going to have to defend Bournemouth Council (there is a first time for everything...) because they have done an awful lot in the quite recent past to prevent illegal 'traveller' encampments. We certainly now have substantial defences on open space in the Strouden, Muscliff and Redhill areas, which following historic problems have lately proved extremely effective.

In this Poole situation the main question has to be why this was not done before, after all these incursions have been a predictable annual event. But more importantly will these physical actions be accompanied by a vital change of attitude from the authorities in Poole when an incursion occurs, regrettably we all know where the power sharing Lib Dems sympathies are, so best not to count on it.

I don't disagree, but if you did prosecute a 'traveller' for anything the authorities would have to hold that individual in immediate custody pending a Court appearance, because If a 'traveller' of no fixed abode (clue is in the name!) and probably uncertain identity is released on bail common sense informs that he/she will disappear down a long and winding road never to be seen again.

And of course we can all imagine what the 'human rights' liberal lefty brigade - of which there are rather too many inside our authorities - would have to say about that!

Or maybe have a government who will challenge this absurd ruling (made in an English court) that climbing into a caravan and driving to another country, or part of a country qualifies you to be a differenet ethnic group.

But then that will only happen when these folk pitch up in rural Oxfordshire where Mr Cameron and his lot reside - and these supposed travellers know better that to do that. Just as they consciously avoid the huge grounds of stately homes.

The only time they go near those who run and own most of the country is when they visit a lawyers office to pay him to plead their case ........ and the only way their annual rampages will be stopped is by removing this absurd ruling.

Then there would be no need for barriers, fences or ditches, and the lawyers would still get their fat fees, only this time in prosecution fees !

I was curious how much it costs to clean up after them. Where does the money come from exactly? Is it central government grants? Local council tax?

Everyone else has to have permits and pay fees for similar privalidges, and consequences for breaking the law. It all seems daft to me. They are protected on one hand, then refused to camp in the other, but do it any way without fear of consequences. Isn't it about time that these traditions are looked at properly?

It may be a one off, but Marty Caine's point about the actual decision made by the Cabinet on Tuesday night is true. They did not support the hypothication of the £231,000 towards improving site security, they changed it to "what's neccessary to protect the 6 sites identified" - in other words there will be other sites that become more vulnerable. The six sites were selected based on recent incursions, and the close proximity of play areas and sports facilities. The only way to deal effectively with the situation is to provide a transit site or temporary stopping place. The problem is that the most suitable site has been rejected after what has to be one of the most effective spin campaigns of recent years. As for small sites dotted around the town where problems are not caused, these do exist already - including on the edge of my ward where a handful of travellers turn up and are virtually unoticed, as indeed there is in Creekmoor. You could not formalise these, and many are on privately owned land anyway. What we have now is the best of a bad job and is not a long term solution. As for traveller rights, I gather that these were built into the core principles on which Britain is based on and are almost 1,000 years old. If that is the case then we have to come up with a package that manages the situation in the interests of all rather than one side or another - albeit that the closet facists might have other ideas.

Bournemouth, you did this to Kings Park, what about the rest of Bournemouth Parks.
Isnt it really poole council following bournmouths lead? last year there were pretty much no traveller camps in bournmouth, they were nearly all in Poole - because bournemouth council has put in lots of defences and actively discourgaes travellers, hence they all went to poole in 2013.
You obviously never went near Kinson or Wallisdown then.

When they have official sites, can we go and chuck our toilet waste onto the site along with our bags of rubbish and old furniture?

They are happy enough to do likewise to the settled community.

.......
So you're saying that the businesses and residents of Creekmoor all got together along with several other parties from outside the area and all colluded to scupper the most UNSUITABLE site for a TSP? I think you are insulting everyone who put forward real reasons why this was not a suitable site. You are also insulting your colleagues on the Planning Committee who agreed that planning permission should not be granted for a site contaminated with methane, noise, light at night, traffic fumes as well as likely to cause accidents to both travellers and motorists on a busy dual carriageway. Bet you're popular with those colleagues for slagging them off like that.
.......
The council never listens to what residents in a particular area want - only what certain councillors want - so if the council had really though the sites were suitable, they'd have gone ahead regardless of objections as they have in the past. Fortunately common sense prevailed before too much council tax payers money was wasted on a site which wouldn't be used, even though some councillors were intend on another waste of space and resources.
......
Remember residents know this borough is a dictatorship, and not a democracy - the present move to considering committees rather than the current dictatorial cabinet system shows that this is so.

Well actually the temporary stopping place was not the best solution because all that would really do is show the travellers what a soft touch Poole Council is and if you built a site for 30 you can be sure that 60 would turn up, so in fact instead of actually solving the problem you would only be making it far worse and at a major expense to the taxpayers.

The best solution is to get a decent MP that will lobby Westminster to get the law changed so the police are not restricted with their powers to remove them, unfortunately our current MP Robert Syms is far more concerned with allowing surrounding areas to send their own problems to Poole and I sincerely hope that the people of Poole remember that at next years general election.

No, just the right to live a nomadic lifestyle. At least a proper site can be managed. Also beware of generalisations, not all travellers cause mayhem. One group a couple of years ago who parked up near Branksome Chine surprised all concerned when they tidied up afterwards leaving little or no trace they were ever there. Some other groups seem to live down to the expectations of those around them, which undermines any attempt to accomodate their needs. Life doesn't fit the neat packages that people like to put it in, and things like the need for evidence and witnesses gets in the way of taking a hard line - though that's for the Police to comment on.

On this occasion I am going to have to defend Bournemouth Council (there is a first time for everything...) because they have done an awful lot in the quite recent past to prevent illegal 'traveller' encampments. We certainly now have substantial defences on open space in the Strouden, Muscliff and Redhill areas, which following historic problems have lately proved extremely effective.

In this Poole situation the main question has to be why this was not done before, after all these incursions have been a predictable annual event. But more importantly will these physical actions be accompanied by a vital change of attitude from the authorities in Poole when an incursion occurs, regrettably we all know where the power sharing Lib Dems sympathies are, so best not to count on it.
Bournemouth have only indicated they have secured Kings Park. My query was this going to happen at other park areas in the conurbation. Clearly it has in some areas, but there is more to Bournemouth than Strouden, Redhill and Muscliff. I was not condeming Bournemouth Council, merely asking a question Muscliffman (or is it Mr. Whittaker).....lol

You still haven’t grasped the message councillor Trent. Your previous comments about ‘The Creekmoor Mob’ and your comments on these post about ‘Spin Campaigns’ just go to show how out of touch and arrogant you are. Caroline43 is absolutely right in her summary of the planning process that applied to the TTS but before this there was the waste of tax payers money for a consultative report, certain councillors ignoring it's findings and the dubious means by which Creekmoor appeared as the favoured option.

You and your colleagues are elected to represent the view of those people in your wards, not foster your own view on them. Just because you didn’t get your way do you have the right to revert to name calling. You have managed to do a great disservice to the Lib/Dems in this area and lost them many votes at the next elections. Perhaps you should consider stepping down.

Honest about what exactly? I've just had a LibDem campaign booklet pushed through my letterbox containing some of the worst scaremongering I have seen so far, apparently according to the LieDims, 3 million jobs are at risk if we leave the European Union. This is utter nonsense because you do not have to be part of a political union to trade with Europe, in fact outside the constraints of the EU we will be trading globally which will increase jobs not put them at risk. It is this kind of blatant lying which will see the end of the LibDem party for good. The last page of the booklet states they are delivering jobs for Poole and the imprint clearly states, Printed in Somerset, too funny :)

I wonder if the Council have thought of CCTV on places like Branksome Rec and then at least they may be able to have clear evidence of any criminal activities, not only in relation to the travellers but anyone using those open spaces. It will be all too easy for anyone to smash down something that is stopping them accessing the land and then saying it was already like that when they arrived and without evidence you can't prosecute.

Honest about what exactly? I've just had a LibDem campaign booklet pushed through my letterbox containing some of the worst scaremongering I have seen so far, apparently according to the LieDims, 3 million jobs are at risk if we leave the European Union. This is utter nonsense because you do not have to be part of a political union to trade with Europe, in fact outside the constraints of the EU we will be trading globally which will increase jobs not put them at risk. It is this kind of blatant lying which will see the end of the LibDem party for good. The last page of the booklet states they are delivering jobs for Poole and the imprint clearly states, Printed in Somerset, too funny :)

The irony is the fact that LibDems accuse us of scaremongering for relaying truths and at the same time produce campaign literature like that. None of which actually alters the basic fact that a temporary stopping place or transit site is not ever going to solve the problem, whereas making it as difficult as possible for caravans to get onto those open spaces is. Even you have to see the sense in that Baysider.

"The problem is that the most suitable site has been rejected after what has to be one of the most effective spin campaigns of recent years."

Two basic errors there, as you full well know Cllr Trent. The sites were utterly UNsuitable, as evidenced by the Planning Cttee decision, and the effective campaign was not about spin, but about the very obvious facts of the case, as evidenced by the submissions to Planning Cttee which led them to refuse the proposal.

I like to think you're basically a decent bloke, but on this one it's time to pick up the toys, put them back in the pram, and move on.

"The six sites were selected based on recent incursions, and the close proximity of play areas and sports facilities." Rings a bit hollow to those of us that have had frequent incursions on close-by sites, and presumably will now be even more at risk if the protections work. Also a touch odd that four out of six sites are in wards that are wholly LibDem ... smacks of partiality.

Don't get me wrong, I do believe that sites should be protected, but that needs to go alongside a wider strategy of denial of access across the borough using intelligence-led operations.

It may be a one off, but Marty Caine's point about the actual decision made by the Cabinet on Tuesday night is true. They did not support the hypothication of the £231,000 towards improving site security, they changed it to "what's neccessary to protect the 6 sites identified" - in other words there will be other sites that become more vulnerable. The six sites were selected based on recent incursions, and the close proximity of play areas and sports facilities. The only way to deal effectively with the situation is to provide a transit site or temporary stopping place. The problem is that the most suitable site has been rejected after what has to be one of the most effective spin campaigns of recent years. As for small sites dotted around the town where problems are not caused, these do exist already - including on the edge of my ward where a handful of travellers turn up and are virtually unoticed, as indeed there is in Creekmoor. You could not formalise these, and many are on privately owned land anyway. What we have now is the best of a bad job and is not a long term solution. As for traveller rights, I gather that these were built into the core principles on which Britain is based on and are almost 1,000 years old. If that is the case then we have to come up with a package that manages the situation in the interests of all rather than one side or another - albeit that the closet facists might have other ideas.

[quote][p][bold]Tony Trent[/bold] wrote: It may be a one off, but Marty Caine's point about the actual decision made by the Cabinet on Tuesday night is true. They did not support the hypothication of the £231,000 towards improving site security, they changed it to "what's neccessary to protect the 6 sites identified" - in other words there will be other sites that become more vulnerable. The six sites were selected based on recent incursions, and the close proximity of play areas and sports facilities. The only way to deal effectively with the situation is to provide a transit site or temporary stopping place. The problem is that the most suitable site has been rejected after what has to be one of the most effective spin campaigns of recent years. As for small sites dotted around the town where problems are not caused, these do exist already - including on the edge of my ward where a handful of travellers turn up and are virtually unoticed, as indeed there is in Creekmoor. You could not formalise these, and many are on privately owned land anyway. What we have now is the best of a bad job and is not a long term solution. As for traveller rights, I gather that these were built into the core principles on which Britain is based on and are almost 1,000 years old. If that is the case then we have to come up with a package that manages the situation in the interests of all rather than one side or another - albeit that the closet facists might have other ideas.[/p][/quote]The best thing you can do Mr Trent is join them,and take them all with you across the water to the EU, I tell you somthing .The British people. have just about had anough of the EU human writes act ,and the EU, We did not fight two world wars ,just to hand over our country to the EU Germans or anybody else ,.

Well actually Bib, Farage only claws back a little bit from the EU what your lot have already given away, £1.6 billion a month to be a member of a political union that is the cause of so many of the problems we face in Britain today. Now I am sure that makes perfect sense to you but for most sensible folk its an expense we could well do without as you will find out on May 25th when the results come in for the EU elections.

Honest about what exactly? I've just had a LibDem campaign booklet pushed through my letterbox containing some of the worst scaremongering I have seen so far, apparently according to the LieDims, 3 million jobs are at risk if we leave the European Union. This is utter nonsense because you do not have to be part of a political union to trade with Europe, in fact outside the constraints of the EU we will be trading globally which will increase jobs not put them at risk. It is this kind of blatant lying which will see the end of the LibDem party for good. The last page of the booklet states they are delivering jobs for Poole and the imprint clearly states, Printed in Somerset, too funny :)
Marty The UKIP fanatic complaining about nonsense and scaremongering. The very definition of irony...
The irony is the fact that LibDems accuse us of scaremongering for relaying truths and at the same time produce campaign literature like that. None of which actually alters the basic fact that a temporary stopping place or transit site is not ever going to solve the problem, whereas making it as difficult as possible for caravans to get onto those open spaces is. Even you have to see the sense in that Baysider.
You and your UKIP pals wouldn't recognise the truth if it bit you or your aging backsides and you're very happy to peddle dubious facts, dodgy syats and blatent lies when it suits you...but lets not get into that again.
You do realise that getting abuse from someone who does not have the guts to put their name to what they say only amuses me, especially when I know that if it wasn't for UKIP the public would not have been told anything about the goings on in the EU and this country would have been handed over to a bunch of dangerous unelected bureaucrats without any public consultation whatsoever.

Sadly UKIP haven't quite gtasped that it might help their cause if they could find someone with an IQ in double figures to squeak up for them

Tthere is NO £19.2m annual contribution to the EU. There is however a
rough figure of around £5/6bn contribution, which is no more than a means to secure markets in developing parts of the EU, as when Tesco runs a free bus to take shoppers to it's shop.

Who realy benefits from this and who looses by having mass immigration are moot points. Points that need to be looked at closely through reasoned and informed debate, not drowned out by ill informed and innaccurate bleats from a bunch of cranks and crackpots.

Because that is the real danger. That you and your fellow fruitcakes are doing the dirty work of the three major parties by muddying the waters with nonsensical drivel that is based on nothing more than your own paranoia.

For your information (and the dimwit above, who I suspect may be a wind up poking fun at you fruitcakes) I am not a Lib Dem, or have ever voted for them or have any intention of voting for them.

I do have concerns about mass immigration, as I have stated elsewhere on this site, but find it very frustrating that those concerns all to often get bundled up with the barking mad who cannot see the harm they are doing to much needed debate by their constant paranoic bleats.

More than willing to meet for a coffee and compare our IQ levels if you like Bob but from the nonsense you have just posted I can assure you, you will be sadly disappointed. The fact is our current membership of the EU is £19.2 billion a year, that is a documented fact, the costs however to Britain is somewhere in the region of £150 billion a year, when you take into account all the stealth charges of the EU regulations which we must abide by whilst remaining members. Open borders is an EU policy that cannot be changed and the only way Britain can put an end to mass uncontrolled immigration is to exit the EU. If you are in any doubts whatsoever that you can actually negotiate with those who really are behind the madness of the EU I strongly urge you to watch this video interview.

I do have concerns about mass immigration, as I have stated elsewhere on this site, but find it very frustrating that those concerns all to often get bundled up with the barking mad who cannot see the harm they are doing to much needed debate by their constant paranoic bleats.
If you think they need someone with a better IQ to speak up for them then that really doesnt say alot for the Lib Dems does it as cast your mind back 3 weeks ago when Farage and Clegg went head to head and please tell me the results of both of the polls the papers and sky news carried out, although I doubt you'll tell me the results as they were that Farage wiped the floor with Clegg so that doesnt say alot for your argument that Farage has low IQ

That is the whole problem

look up the ruling that gave these people an 'ethnic' status and see what that requires BY LAW local councils to do

grasp that and the rest falls into place
Oh no,

Don't tell me we are going to be invaded by hordes of wild, maniac Cornishmen as well!
I think not as it's only the travellers (and immigrants) who use the law to their own good.
Change the law - change the problem.
Now are any political parties going to make a stand for us the people they represent and promise to push through legislation to change this absurdly one sided equation we find ourselves having to work out.

No, just the right to live a nomadic lifestyle. At least a proper site can be managed. Also beware of generalisations, not all travellers cause mayhem.

Tony Trent, I contacted MP Robert Syms and asked him why travellers are regarded as a separate ethnic group and not subjected to the same laws as the rest of us, while in Eire they are not recognised as an ethnic group. He said that it is because we are a member of the EU and subscribe to the Human Rights Act, while the Irish, although members of the EU, have not signed up the Human Rights Act.

Bottom line...........
If you live here and pay tax and go down town and drop a fag end....you will be fined.
If you come to our town in a group and tear down our fences around our recreation grounds and pollute and defecate , you are allowed to do it !
End of.
Well done Trent .
This is the majority not the minority of these people that do this.
Also what was Mannings Heath road built for then, millions spent on that dump as well!!!!!
Counsellors and police and bloody politicians are here to milk and keep the rest of decent people in check and to extort money in one form or another.

Why then are Irish Traveller Movement currently petitioning to have their status as a separate ethnic group recognised in Eire? Currently they are not and Ireland is in the EU.

I cannot see how there is ANY confusion.

InAug 2000 Judge Goldstein ruled (in an ENGLISH court) that Irish travellers were a seperate ethnic group...something that was alteady recognised in another part of the UK.. Northern ireland.

However the devil has always been in the detail as there has been no real clear determination or clarification of actual what defines anm Irish Traveller. This has always been the problem. As long as no one has challenged this they can claim the protection of laws that were intended to stop the horrors of the 2nd World war, not allow a pile of latter day bandits to roam free around the countryside causing mayhem. Address that anomoly, because that is the root cause of the current problem.

Unfortunately this extremely obvious factor has constantly been ignored and clouded over by the idiotic bleats of the ' political correctness gone mad' brigade who use this problem as a means to bleat about the wickedness of the EU. Totally missing the point. That point being why has NO UK government revisited this ruling.

Remove that ruling and you go a long way to removing the 'protection and, what most of us see as the exemption from the law, of these folk.

Reading the constant ill informed rants on here makes me wonder how much the travellers are being helped by the sheer stupidity of these halfwits.

UKIP,,,, you do have do many infiltrators,, it must be a nightmare at meetings to know who is with you and who is just taking notes...
Yesterday I was sent an email with all your meetings across the UK, who the speakers are and who could attend to spy on what you are up to.

On the upside, this must mean that you have people worried so now you are being given the same treatment as real parties,,, infiltrated.

And on the gypsy issue,,, there is just one person in Poole that is responsible for any travelers that set up camp this year,,, Judy Butt,, if she had done her job right the transit camp would have given the police the power to arrest anyone on Branksome park, Whitecliff and so on.

She is now doing her best to try to distance herself from her deeds,, fearfull that she is being dumped from the Tory party....

Too late Judy,,, too late...

Wow, so you are a member of Hope Not Hate then that is interesting to know, though it doesn't come as much as a surprise. Yes I have also seen that email as well but there are others ways to find out what UKIP are doing, locally you can simply look on www.ukip-poole.org events page, we don't actually hide what we are doing.

As for the TSP, although Judy Butt did work extremely hard for her constituents to get that plan stopped, in the end it was actually more to do with the council being in breach of their own code of conduct rules than anything that Judy did. They simply realised that if it went ahead it would bite them in their Butt, maybe thats where you have gotten a little confused.

He's also lashing out because he's been politically emasculated by two women and that obviously doesn't sit well with him. He knows his party is finished and he won't get further politically than he already has and will probably be ousted at the next election, so his only actions are to try to assassinate the reputation of one of the women he's second fiddle to.

Just people like you and cowards of a police force can't enforce these people to live like decent people.
No, just the right to live a nomadic lifestyle. At least a proper site can be managed. Also beware of generalisations, not all travellers cause mayhem. One group a couple of years ago who parked up near Branksome Chine surprised all concerned when they tidied up afterwards leaving little or no trace they were ever there. Some other groups seem to live down to the expectations of those around them, which undermines any attempt to accomodate their needs. Life doesn't fit the neat packages that people like to put it in, and things like the need for evidence and witnesses gets in the way of taking a hard line - though that's for the Police to comment on.
Tony Trent, I contacted MP Robert Syms and asked him why travellers are regarded as a separate ethnic group and not subjected to the same laws as the rest of us, while in Eire they are not recognised as an ethnic group. He said that it is because we are a member of the EU and subscribe to the Human Rights Act, while the Irish, although members of the EU, have not signed up the Human Rights Act.
......
So who's right? You saying "I gather that these were built into the core principles on which Britain is based on and are almost 1,000 years old.", or Robert Syms?
Robert Syms is wrong, the ECHR is written into The Treaty of Lisbon and every member of the EU has to abide by it, there is no opt out option.
Why then are Irish Traveller Movement currently petitioning to have their status as a separate ethnic group recognised in Eire? Currently they are not and Ireland is in the EU.
......
There are various petitions on the web asking for support for their human rights as an ethnic minority in various countries, including the UK and internationally . If they already are, why the petitions?
.....
There is also an HM petition for removal of their rights.
.....
I'm now totally confused.
If these people lead a 'travelling lifestyle', where do they go to in the Winter??
Perhaps you could give your name to the local Councils, as I am sure, as

Your saying that criminal damage ,intimidation,theft and robbery ,pollution and littering ,and a complete lack of any morals as a human being . Is built into Britain ......no. Just people like you and cowards of a police force can't enforce these people to live like decent people.[/p][/quote]No, just the right to live a nomadic lifestyle. At least a proper site can be managed. Also beware of generalisations, not all travellers cause mayhem. One group a couple of years ago who parked up near Branksome Chine surprised all concerned when they tidied up afterwards leaving little or no trace they were ever there. Some other groups seem to live down to the expectations of those around them, which undermines any attempt to accomodate their needs. Life doesn't fit the neat packages that people like to put it in, and things like the need for evidence and witnesses gets in the way of taking a hard line - though that's for the Police to comment on.[/p][/quote]Tony Trent, I contacted MP Robert Syms and asked him why travellers are regarded as a separate ethnic group and not subjected to the same laws as the rest of us, while in Eire they are not recognised as an ethnic group. He said that it is because we are a member of the EU and subscribe to the Human Rights Act, while the Irish, although members of the EU, have not signed up the Human Rights Act. ...... So who's right? You saying "I gather that these were built into the core principles on which Britain is based on and are almost 1,000 years old.", or Robert Syms?[/p][/quote]Robert Syms is wrong, the ECHR is written into The Treaty of Lisbon and every member of the EU has to abide by it, there is no opt out option.[/p][/quote]Why then are Irish Traveller Movement currently petitioning to have their status as a separate ethnic group recognised in Eire? Currently they are not and Ireland is in the EU. ...... There are various petitions on the web asking for support for their human rights as an ethnic minority in various countries, including the UK and internationally . If they already are, why the petitions? ..... There is also an HM petition for removal of their rights. ..... I'm now totally confused.[/p][/quote]If these people lead a 'travelling lifestyle', where do they go to in the Winter?? Perhaps you could give your name to the local Councils, as I am sure, as a great supporter of these Travellers, you will pleased to relieve the Council workers of their delighful chore of cleaning up what I have heard one Councillor describe as 'stomach-churning' messes.[/p][/quote]P.S You must be aware that after the 12 proposed spaces at Creekmoor had been filled, no more Travellers could be moved on? mimi55

Tthere is NO £19.2m annual contribution to the EU. There is however a
rough figure of around £5/6bn contribution, which is no more than a means to secure markets in developing parts of the EU, as when Tesco runs a free bus to take shoppers to it's shop.

Who realy benefits from this and who looses by having mass immigration are moot points. Points that need to be looked at closely through reasoned and informed debate, not drowned out by ill informed and innaccurate bleats from a bunch of cranks and crackpots.

Because that is the real danger. That you and your fellow fruitcakes are doing the dirty work of the three major parties by muddying the waters with nonsensical drivel that is based on nothing more than your own paranoia.

For your information (and the dimwit above, who I suspect may be a wind up poking fun at you fruitcakes) I am not a Lib Dem, or have ever voted for them or have any intention of voting for them.

I do have concerns about mass immigration, as I have stated elsewhere on this site, but find it very frustrating that those concerns all to often get bundled up with the barking mad who cannot see the harm they are doing to much needed debate by their constant paranoic bleats.
Keep going! The more you try to disparage UKIP the more votes you get
them!

Far too sensible - and the Police would actually have to something then,
wouldn't they?

Doesn't matter even if they did get caught / get found guilty of causing damage - it is a completely separate offence to unlawful occupation. it is an urban myth that if you get caught causing damage you can get evicted - it's not related.
Acually, take a look at the criminal justice act - criminal damage is a reason for moving travellers on - Council and Police are just too afraid/politically
correct to do it. (I am told Bournemouth Council did actually use this to move
travellers on in just one hour)

1. I am not a supporter of travellers - most definitely not. I would remove whatever protection they have, confiscate, prosecute and do whatever was necessary to stop them doing as they please.
2. Travellers return to their mansions in Ireland during the winter.
3. You're right - the site at Creekmoor wouldn't have been used. The travellers would have just pitched up on PRIVATE land, which would have cost landowners the same as it did the council to move them on. The problem would just have been to someone else - not somewhere else. It might have solved the problem for the council, but not for the public.
4. Creekmoor would have lost another green area with no economic benefit. At least if Forrell Estates build there, the town will get some economic benefit and the gateway to the town will be a more pleasant site than an empty metal cage. Losing a green area to the white elephant which is the park and ride was appalling.
5. PooperScooper, there's a programme on TV tonight about the rise in trolls using the internet to post offensive and abusive comments about women. You should watch it as it might explain why you do it - it's obviously a psychological problem of hating women who are more successful and popular than you, so therefore something which needs treatment.
6.Being a LibDem you'll have to vote for UKIP secretly, otherwise what you maintain is happening to another councillor would most definitely happen to you as a party traitor. You really are henpecked aren't you.

SuperSnooper says "But of course, the idiot Butt decided to throw a wobble over it and has single handedly shafted the whole of Poole...."

So are you saying it is Judy Butts fault that BoP did not waste £250,000 building a TSP that would not have been used and this lead to a desolate piece of land being purchased for £400,000 to have offices built that will create 200 new jobs in Poole and no doubt bring in a business rates revenue for over £100,000 a year. If that is truly the case all I can say is.... Well done Judy Butt and its not often you will see me pat a Tory on the back.

Judging by the amount of negative votes its NIMBY,ism in the extreme. No more comments from SuperPooer?
Not once some of us realised who he is - a local business person, involved in local politics, involved in organising election campaigns and who did his best to trash the Conservatives with nasty personal attacks. Isn't that right Mike? ........ I reckon he's been told by higher ups in his party to stop for going too far in his attempted libellous assassination of a Creekmoor councillor.
Whilst I agree with most of your comments Carolyn43 I do think you have the wrong person identified as SuperSnooper, I think its a disgruntled ex tory who was booted out.
