I think you'll find the answer to some of that is yes. Like theft, vandalism, defecating in gadens? Maybe some of the opinions here would change if one actually lived next door? (which I am guessing is NOT Vanessa Redgrave and her ilk). Maybe you should ask the people along the route of Appleby Horse Fair what they think about travellers? Maybe you should listen to some of the locals near the 'Farm'? They are not some poor innocents. These travellers who are not travellers, bought and occupied the land knowing full well what they were doing. Let's not grant them the status of heros of the Freeman movement. Leeches and rogues is more like it. It's called wanting all of the rights and none of the responsibilities. And let's not mention the fact that they offered to sell the site to the council for a hefty profit!
I suppose I will be labelled a 'racist' now for daring to go against the site norm.
