why oh why oh why is it my problem?
i have a job to pay my bills.
i look after my own health and circumstances.
i don't hate travellers, but i resent the fact that for the most part they don't seem to be able to look after themselves, and therefore become a millstone around the neck of whatever community they inhabit.
i have the same resentment towards settled people with the same attitude. in that much i am consistent in my views.
i don't ask you to share those views, but to be labelled a 'nazi'? that's hardly constructive!
and i really don't think it's reasonable that castlebar is expected to host another halting site, if this plan goes ahead. are we the only town in mayo?
and no comment has been made on the disruptive influence a halting site has, and the negative effect on house and property prices in the surrounding areas.
knowing this board, the reaction will focus on my supposed 'i'm alright jack' attitude. i can live with that, i'm secure in the knowledge that i contribute my fair share to my community and society.
i may be wrong, but i think that should entitle me to an opinion on local affairs and where my tax is going.
is that the same excuse the nazi's used, anyone?
