Coming soon to a site near you
It seems that tax payers money is to be thrown at creating hundreds and hundreds of new sites for travellers. You know, the decent hard-workingtax-paying law-abiding familes who Gordon is working night and day to do a good jobbie for, and to save them from the effects of the Global Shit Storm that is All America's Fault.
Local governments will be strong-armed into compulsory purchasing land and ignoring planning laws or the protection of greenbelt land.
Now, the question is - how many votes does the One Eyed SnotGobbling Scotch Cretin think are going to go ZNL's way because of this? As far as I can tell from my (limited) contacts with those of a genuine Romany background, registering on an electoral roll and voting are not high up on their list of interesting and worthwhile things to do. The other sorts of travellers, that get the Romany Community such a bad name, are also unlikely voters.
On the other side of the fence though, will be outraged householders and landowners. Who probably will vote.
So, if you are lucky enough to live in a Labour Marginal, you won't have to worry about any influx of caravans (unless Margaret Beckett is coming to campaign for your vote!)
