Re: "Pitched battle" at York Hall
I would have no issue with travellers if they paid the equivalent council tax when they were in a given area and were forcibly removed from private property.
But they don't and they aren't. It is unbelievable that the police can kick your door in to search a house you own, and people can be forcibly removed from their homes for a new run way, but it takes years of hand wringing and meetings to get any movement on people who have just rocked up to green belt land and set up camp illegally.
If they don't pay the equivalent council tax they shouldn't be treated by the NHS regardless of what has happened. Run over and need an ambulance? Tough ****, sort it out in your close knit circle.
Children obviously an exception from this rule.
