I can think of fewer things more likely to upset Daily
Mail readers than gipsies and travelling folk getting
millions of pounds of taxpayers' money spent on them.
In this case, due to the scale and possible land grabs,
they may have a point.
The controversial £97 million plan is expected to produce
7,500 extra pitches all over England. If enough land
cannot be found, then compulsory purchase has been threatened
as an option.
Forest District Council says that "In many
cases, experience has shown that the travelling community
is often keen to buy land," which makes me extra-suspicious
of these plans.
The Council also suggests that "Owners of land
wishing to pursue new housing estates could be required
to build an element of traveller provision in same way
as with affordable housing now," then comes the
threat of compulsory purchase.
Is there something more sinister going on that the
travellers should be aware of?
I remember being told by someone who had lived in Jordan
about the Bedouin-type people there being domesticated
by being forced to settle into proper houses to enable
the 'authorities' to know where all their people were
located and to make it easier to collect taxes.
Some of these wandering folk could not adapt and lived
in their tents in the garden.
It looks to me like a similar situation is planned
for travellers in Britain whereby the 'authorities'
can keep tags on them more easily and get their children
settled and into the 'education' system to train them
to be good little sheeple.
How can they be persuaded to surrender their biometric
data in order to be issued with ID cards unless they
have been prepared to some degree to accept the 'system'
that seeks to control us all?
One of the great conditioning tools of our age is 'divide
and rule' and you just have to read many of the comments
left on newspaper websites to see how all this stirs
up resentment and even hatred of our fellow beings.
The powers-that-be must love it. They create the conditions
for strife in the community and while the people try
and sort out their grievances at local level, the government
gets on with planning more of the same.
