    Can you believe this?

    Just heard this on my local BBC news and i wonder just how ridiculous this country is going to get?
    Some traveller has claimed a piece of land because she has lived on it for 12 years and claimed squatters rights.
    If that sounds ridiculous there is more...........
    The piece of land is valued at 450,000 pounds and has been put up for sale.
    Does that sound outrageous?..............there is more..................
    The local authority wants to buy the land!!! why??............
    because it has a legal obligation to to supply the travellers land to live on!!!
    Many years ago we as a empire lead the world ............

    The term ***** as a pejorative appears to be a very old English word, remaining near unchanged, probably in common use during William Shakespeare's lifetime. The text Gypsy Politics and Social Change notes Boorde's 1547 reference:

    Boorde remarked in 1547 of the: "Egipcions [sic: Egyptians i.e.: Gypsies] be swarte [swarthy] and doth go disgsy'd [disguised] in theyr [their] apparel, contrary to other nacyons [nations]: they be lyght [light] fyngered [fingered], and use pyking[1]"

    The term is strongly associated with itinerant life and constant travel: ***** is directly derived from pike which, circa 1520, meant to "go away from, to go on" and related to the words turnpike (toll-road) and pike-man (toll-collector) [2]

    Apologies to anyone offended by the alternative word for a traveller but its not really why i posted,its the content of the news story and how ridiculous we seem to getting as a nation!
    So we are going to waste nearly half a million pounds from central government while people are still queuing for hospital treatment!

    After squatting for 12 years looks like she isnt a traveller any more, doesnt it?

    exactly it squatters rights 12 years and then claim the land - its not a new law .

    I have just checked this out and unfortunately your summary is far from the facts made available, even from the BBC.

    I think you misunderstand where this law comes from and just how old it is, it is nothing new for this Gypsy.

    Is that a pic of you Tinkytayls? if it is... WWWWWWOOOOOOOWWWWWWW.
    Sorry, but had to say it:w00t:

    That's what I don't get, they're travellers yet they stay in the same sites? In my local paper is a story of a disabelled (he lost both legs 2 years ago in a train accident) traveller complaining the council are doing nothing to help him, he has asked for a permanent building allowing him to wash and shower himself, and with heat and electricity.

    The council offered him a flat and a carer which he refused because he's a traveller- so why does he want a permanent building built? and why should us full council tax payers have to fund it?
