TRAVELLERS arrived on land opposite the Sainsbury's store in Tollgate, Colchester.

About ten caravans pitched up on the site on Thursday  but had already left by Friday lunchtime.

A Colchester Council spokesman said: “The land in question, opposite Sainsbury’s, Tollgate, is privately owned and therefore is down to the landowner to arrange eviction. If the landowner contacts the police, they may be able to assist in the eviction. As the land does not belong to Colchester Council or Essex County Council, the Essex Countywide Traveller Unit will act in an advisory capacity only.”

Wearebeingwatched, yes your right, but their idea of shopping excludes the queuing to pay bit.
One if my clients uses a company called Swifts, from Cardiff. Very effective, they arrive with low loaders, give the trespassers 2 hours only. Then they loader the towing vehicles. Every time the trespassers load up and go. Cost around £2k but it's cheaper than the clean up cost etc.

Why not allow them to pitch up on the High Street and create a new traffic diversion system? They could also run their own market at the same time.

If that motion doesn't get passed, how about knocking down First Site and making it in to a permanent traveller's pitch? Would be cheaper to run??

You have clearly never been the victim of their thieving or violence. which the police service are unable to deal with. That is apart from one police officer.

Ps, a very big ps.... gypsy are quite different to travellers. Gypsies are genuine nomadic travellers - probably with Romany blood. Irish travellers are thieving illegitimate trash who have enabled their illegal activities by hiding under the canopy of the genuine travelling community.

The thread inevitable drifted to his vote against strengthening knife crime law. I had just added a note that proved he mp concerned in 2070 tabled a petition in the house of commons to move knife crime into the same sentencing category as gun crime ie mandatory custodial.

No doubt if the Landowner 'forces' the eviction of the Travellers from this land, it will be the landowner who ends up being arrested.

A couple of years ago while in Naples there were similar issues with Travellers, the locals just burned down Travellers sites, and the Police provided the buses for the Travellers to return home to Romania.

Whilst I do not suggest the Italian example is followed, perhaps Essex Police will provide buses to take these people back to their homes in Ireland.

The Ion Lazar bloke the other week on TV, was a prime example of someone who could not care less about us and this country.
He said he wanted £50,000 to build his place back in the land of Roma and he did not care how he was going to get it.

The Law and Itinerants, It is sad but true, laws that protect law abiding and council tax paying residents is to blame for the upset caused to residents near these travelling people.
Council Official with Police in attendance. “Who say you can stay here”
Mr. Itinerant “The Land Owner Sir” Now the Council official has to contact the landowner. (Which maybe someone other than the Council)
Now the process starts an eviction order has to be drawn up which will take several days due to the legal processes that have to be gone through.

Police Officer “whose Lorry (wagon) is this” Mr. Itinerant. “The owners not here sir, and will not be back until tomorrow, sir”
When tomorrow comes the owners says the tax is in the post and my insurance and driving licence are with my brothers, Mothers Daughter, and they are not with us.
Police officer “You have 5 days to produce your driving licence and document at a station of your choice.
Well we are fully aware that all these items can be checked via our sophisticated network communications. Unfortunately, the law is the law
This prevents the police asking a legitimate driver for his document, and carting him off to some police cell, while he is on holiday, so he is given 5 days to produce his documents at a station of his choice.

This is a trade off for when the muck hits their fan. It does come in very handy. (Colchester 6th Form College is one of them):

It's a fishy sort of a name. I've written with my concerns two weeks ago and have had no connected response to my letter to date.[/p][/quote]I thought all Councillors had some notoriety and some MPs also Past and Present have had clear examples of being notorious. Attempting to fiddle the exchequer with expenses falsely claimed. They should all be named and shamed. So why not name your none replying councillor. It seems "Harold Wilson was correct" a week in politics is a very long time.[/p][/quote]Allan, the gent concerned is Mr. Rodney - I don't care how many get stabbed, I'm not turning the lights on - Bass.

No doubt if the Landowner 'forces' the eviction of the Travellers from this land, it will be the landowner who ends up being arrested.

A couple of years ago while in Naples there were similar issues with Travellers, the locals just burned down Travellers sites, and the Police provided the buses for the Travellers to return home to Romania.

Whilst I do not suggest the Italian example is followed, perhaps Essex Police will provide buses to take these people back to their homes in Ireland.
Yep the French would do the same:
Why not fight fire with fire?
The Ion Lazar bloke the other week on TV, was a prime example of someone who could not care less about us and this country.
He said he wanted £50,000 to build his place back in the land of Roma and he did not care how he was going to get it.
I would love try to try that one over there !
According to sound information the residents of Eire will not allow these tinkers anywhere in the their beautiful southern states.
Allan Whitehead: You are correct, my understanding is that the Irish don't want these travellers in their midst and that they are generally not accepted in Ireland. They have a bad reputation there, for the same reasons they do here unfortunately.
