Roma group set up camp at park and ride site

SETTING UP CAMP: Travellers at the park and ride in Mount Pleasant

SETTING UP CAMP: Travellers at the park and ride in Mount Pleasant

First published in News by

A GROUP of French travellers set up camp on the park and ride site in Weymouth.

The nine caravans belonging to a group of French Roma travellers moved on to the Dorset County Council-owned Mount Pleasant park and ride site.

Council representatives have met the group and the travellers say they will go tomorrow, although it is understood some have left already.

Borough councillor Bill White, who represents the Radipole area, said he had received complaints after the travellers moved in on Sunday.

He said: “There are concerns this area should not be used for that purpose, it’s a place where people pay to leave their cars and these people are not paying.

“There is a lot of concern about how this should be tackled. The thing is that at the moment there are no designated sites for travellers so it’s very difficult to get them to move on immediately.”

There was a temporary travellers’ site available during the Olympics at the Enterprise Business Park, Piddlehinton , but it closed earlier this week.

Coun White added: “The travellers aren’t paying but if you or I park up there we have to pay for the privilege.”

There have been negotiations with the travellers in Weymouth in order to move them on as soon as possible.

A spokesman from Dorset County Council added: “Their English isn’t good but from the conversations we managed to have we know that they are planning to move on by the end of the week.

“If this does not happen we will have to visit them again and take it from there.”

Paula Clover, Gypsy and Traveller Liaison Officer for Dorset County Council, said the group had come to England for a ‘change of scenery.’ She added the group were relatively quiet and tidy.

Mrs Clover said: “They have volunteered to move on by Friday and we have been going down every day to remind them of this.

“If not then we will have to start court proceedings but hopefully it won’t come to that.”

The appearance of the travellers comes after Dorset County Council claimed it was not “a soft touch” when it came to illegal traveller sites.

The council claimed it would introduce new measures such as fining travellers who parked without permission on land it owns.

So if a group of local residents decided to leave their vehicle there for the day without paying, they would just be asked to leave without penalty?

As a local resident would I be allowed to park there for free for a week before they consider issueing parking fines.

If they fancy a change of scenery I have heard Syria can be quite nice this time of year with lots of free parking.

See Bournemouth Echo
Bournemouth Council officers are taking legal action to move on travellers who have set up camp at King's Park. Many of their vehicles have French number plates.

If they can afford to bring their gas guzzling 4x4's over from France, then they can pay to park at a designated caravan site. There's plenty of sites around the Weymouth area. If no pay then clear of back across the channel. We don't need you here in Dorset

Are you for real? nobody would have any issues in the slightest provided they paid for a camping berth like any body else in the many readily available sites around the county. The only irony I can see is the tax payer picking up the tab after my pleasant park and ride is turned into a free for minority rules rubbish and toliet dumping ground. By your inference Perhaps we should all start ignoring the laws and by laws that structure society? heck why stop there let's have a free all whilst were at at it eh???

Yes i am for real. These people are human beings who have the right to live their life the way their ancestors have done for generations. This way of life is their culture & their heritage. Agreed, they should respect the area & clean up afte themselves, but perhaps we, as nation, should provide site/facilities for them to do so.

From Spain:
the criminal justice system — police, prosecutors, judges and prison officials. According to the study, although Roma comprise approximately 1.5% of the total population of Spain, over 25% of Spanish women inmates are Romani. Sixty percent of Romani women inmates are serving sentences for drug dealing, usually on a small scale. Most of the rest of the women are in jail for theft or robbery, usually related to problems of drug abuse. The average sentence being served by Romani women involved in the study is 6.7 years. Sixty percent are repeat offenders.
Source: European Roma Rights Centre.
Hungary: 42% of Roma women are CURRENT victims of domestic violence.
Source: European Roma Rights Centre.
UK: Although only 2.5% of the UK population, gipsy and traveller populations make up 5% of male prisoners and 7% of female prisoners. 9% of the inmates of Wormwood Scrubs are gypsies and travellers.
Source: Inside Time (UK Prisons Newsletter).
Romania:
Of 850 Roma women, 90% had been married by the age of 16. 80% of total marriages were arranged with women's objections being overruled. Of 239 Roma women polled, over 70% had experienced domestic violence from spouse of spouse's family.
Source: ERCC Report to UN Commission on Trafficking

While it's great in principle to argue for societies to live life according to their rules, it is also considered a basic human right not to be exposed to domestic violence, not to abuse children (physically and sexually), not to be forced into arranged marriages.
And precisely why should our taxes be used to provide whatever they want for free? You only have to visit the day after a gipsy group moves on to see how much interest they have in living a natural wholesome life. Where do you think these people are relieving themselves? Gypsies don't have toilets in their caravan as that is considered unclean.

JamesYoung: I agree with the facts and statistics posted and concur the sentiments that they are many rightly or wrongly perceive them as trouble who do very little to convince us otherwise. My axe to grind is the attitude that it’s fine own big flash 4x4s and caravans but flaunt paying to stay on a caravan park or stay somewhere appropriate that does not disrupt or inconvenience others. It’s called respect therefore why should we respect them or their so-called lifestyle choice/ancestry any differently??
I am of the opinion that a diverse society requires all religions, beliefs and races to all contribute equally to the communities they are part off. ShowAdmin's socialist free for giving nothing back doctrine is offensive to those who pay taxes, paying their fair share whilst struggling to earn a living.
ShowAdmin's expectation that people the planet over should have automatic rights to free abode in and lodgings in UK without contribution is quite frankly unpalatable and disturbing. The crazy notion that individuals are entitled to do as they please because that’s what they have done in the past is ridiculous and is completely contradictory to mankinds evolution. Such an flawed argument could likened to claiming everybody should have rights to live in a cave, hunt wild animals and chop trees down as they see fit.
Facts of the matter are this country its cohesive society needs rules and laws to function so we can live together in relative harmony. So why should this group be any exception to the rule or treated any differently that the rest of us?

Your comment is disgraceful, shame on you. You are an embarrassment to the human race, I'd rather live amongst a thousand Roma's than you.

For the few people apologising to these holiday making tourists, please explain exactly why they shouldn't have their vehicles clamped & only released once they had paid the bill?

It seems that you can get away with anything, so long as you claim you are a minority, have enough bare faced cheek, oh & come mob handed.

Perhaps the few people defending these criminals, would care to reimburse the coffers, for the parking tickets that should have been paid.

Yes i am for real. These people are human beings who have the right to live their life the way their ancestors have done for generations. This way of life is their culture & their heritage.

From Spain: the criminal justice system — police, prosecutors, judges and prison officials. According to the study, although Roma comprise approximately 1.5% of the total population of Spain, over 25% of Spanish women inmates are Romani. Sixty percent of Romani women inmates are serving sentences for drug dealing, usually on a small scale. Most of the rest of the women are in jail for theft or robbery, usually related to problems of drug abuse. The average sentence being served by Romani women involved in the study is 6.7 years. Sixty percent are repeat offenders. Source: European Roma Rights Centre. Hungary: 42% of Roma women are CURRENT victims of domestic violence. Source: European Roma Rights Centre. UK: Although only 2.5% of the UK population, gipsy and traveller populations make up 5% of male prisoners and 7% of female prisoners. 9% of the inmates of Wormwood Scrubs are gypsies and travellers. Source: Inside Time (UK Prisons Newsletter). Romania: Of 850 Roma women, 90% had been married by the age of 16. 80% of total marriages were arranged with women's objections being overruled. Of 239 Roma women polled, over 70% had experienced domestic violence from spouse of spouse's family. Source: ERCC Report to UN Commission on Trafficking While it's great in principle to argue for societies to live life according to their rules, it is also considered a basic human right not to be exposed to domestic violence, not to abuse children (physically and sexually), not to be forced into arranged marriages. And precisely why should our taxes be used to provide whatever they want for free? You only have to visit the day after a gipsy group moves on to see how much interest they have in living a natural wholesome life. Where do you think these people are relieving themselves? Gypsies don't have toilets in their caravan as that is considered unclean.

So they don't speak the good English? Just like the Irish diddicoys then. Don't forget these are our colleagues and allies. Just don't mention the fact that when they threw in the towel (again) in 1940 they collaborated with the huns and rounded up all the Jews (THEIR OWN PEOPLE) and handed them over for extermination. Thanks to Ted Heath we have to put up with their constant posturing. But allies or not, most British have a deep loathing and distrust of the garlic munchers. Anyway, who would want to travel about living in carparks and crapping in the bushes for a way of life? They won't be here for long, their Irish mates have just been through so there's nothing left to steal.

Oh Really? I never knew that.
Don't dismiss academic data with such an obvious statement. The point is that these groups indulge in criminal behaviour to a greater extent than others and it is this, rather than racism, that explains why people have an issue with them.
If I came and parked my car on your driveway and left rubbish and human waste in your flower bed, would you have an issue? Or would you offer to build me a dedicated camp site in your back garden? I rather suspect you'd be onto the police like a shot. A nation can only work if everybody follows the same rules.

I do not care what race ethnic background colour or creed a person is or where they have come from. Your implications that I am raciest could not be further from the truth. If I am considered immature for finding it offensive that any visitor to Weymouth / Country can disregard the need to pay parking charges like anybody else or run rough shod through local bye laws then so be it. Other campers have to pay and stay on a campsite. Let’s have a few more immature people of this town stand up and be counted.

Other campers have to pay and stay on a campsite. Let’s have a few more immature people of this town stand up and be counted.

Perhaps you could be considered as raciest yourself against Syria are they not fighting for freedom and democracy. What time does your bus leave for France I will come and wave you off?
Dear confused one, your original comment - '' I hear Syria is nice this time of year, if they fancy a change with free parking'' From this comment you are wishing people to go to a country which you know fully well is a war zone at the moment, I replied -as much as I despise your comment I said not even I would wish you there, (ie in it's current situation, I don't wish death upon people). You have now twisted it to suit your agenda that I am racist for not wanting you to go there!!!???!!!! You wish death upon ethnic groups, and then twist my words to suit you. And now what about your smart comment ''what time does your bus leave for France, I'll wave you off'' ??!!! oh no sorry you are not racist at all......just keep talking you are embarrassing yourself. This is my last comment here, as you are not capable of an adult conversation without resorting to infantile comments, good luck to you, wishing death on people who haven't paid for parking....carry on.......good bye :D

Well said
Here we go again, dismiss valid points by comparison with Hitler. Here's another one for you - there's no Nazi like a liberal. Disagree with one and face not democratic debate but insult, ad hominems and censure.
One last and final time, all you moaners, please moan about something that really effects our lives,,,shame there isn't enough of you questioning the real scandals in the world, real things that have an impact on all our lives...no just carry on picking on the poor and minority groups......

What a silly thing to say, you sound like you have a huge chip on your shoulder. Perhaps if everybody played and obeyed the same rules as everybody else then there would be no issue?? The only issue here is that a certain minority think they are more special and that the rules don’t apply. So instead of sprouting rubbish perhaps you could get on with solving some of the world’s problems rather than unloading those huge blocks of wood from your shoulders.

Your comment is disgraceful, shame on you. You are an embarrassment to the human race, I'd rather live amongst a thousand Roma's than you. As much as I dislike your immature comment not even I would wish you to live in Syria. With thinking like this is how dictators like Hitler came to power, you are a disgrace.
Agreed
