FFS - how can anyone object to someone putting gates up on their own land - especially when they're parked there illegally?
"The gates are intimidatory and dangerous" but 5 or 6 travellers swarming into a shop where 1 person is on duty and trying to watch what they're nicking isn't?
I've tried giving Travellers every chance, but I have never had one good experience with them in my short 25 years - not one. No one I know has either. Can anyone tell me why they deserve *anything*? Don't try and tell me "they're not all bad," they are. Not once have I ever seen anything to the contrary. I'd love to have my mind changed on this - I'd like to think there's enough room for everyone on this world once they've done something to deserve their place. What have Travellers given to *any* community only fear, filth and huge costs to get court injunctions to have them leave land they had no permission to be on anyway?
