A post that is, no doubt, going to upset some readers but one for which I make no apology!
An article in today's Daily Telegraph (unfortunately, once again, no 'on-line' link which always seems to happen to the interesting stories), headlined as above, relates the story of how some 'travellers' are being 'discriminated' against by passing motorists with noise filtering down from passing traffic.
"The travellers have complained about the constant rumble of traffic from a nearby dual carriageway. They also claim their lives are being made a misery by lorry drivers beeping horns, flashing lights and shouting obscenities as they drive along a stretch of the a14, which passes the Blackwell site in Milton, Cambridgeshire."
The paper also reports "The council has already secured a £15,000 grant to widen and improve the entrance to the site."
Listen, you lot. You are 'travellers' - if you don't like where you are, then 'travel'! For a group that is renowned for not paying their 'social dues' (income tax, council tax etc), you really do have a blasted cheek!
It is a farce that taxpayer's money (tax = something that you have no desire to pay into) should be used to alleviate your self-made problem.
Thought for you - there are a further 26 countries you could try your luck in - so 'go try'! Even better, why don't you 'go try' and live in Russia and Putin (sorry, typo - should have read 'put in') a request like this to the governing body there? Probably because you would then be forced to take part in an enforced training course of 'subterranean extraction of sodium chloride'?
