Prescot still causing trouble
Today I visited Barnacle, a small hamlet in Warwickshire. This village like Meridan has been a victim of innappropraite development by so called gypsies/travellers. The law abiding residents are victims of positive discrimination at the hands of europhile jurisprudence via its favorite vehicle, the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
It was the ECHR that inspired former Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott to issue circular 2006/1 to local authrorities across the country. This circular allows gypsies to develop property on protected Green Belt land. The coalition government have announced that it will revoke this guideline. That was a month ago and still nothing has been done. I have written to Eric Pickles demanding an explanation.
Earlier today I met with villagers and their local MP, Mark Pawsey and together we delivered letters of protest to the Deputy Leader of Rugby Council.
