Eviction row threatens higher tax
Council tax could increase by a huge amount in Basildon as a result of the council's fight to evict travellers.
It is estimated the cost of clearing the Crays Hill site could be up to £1.6m and this would mean tax increases for all residents of about 13%.

The council is asking the Government for funds to avoid a tax increase.

Travellers who set up permanent homes and the council enforcing planning laws have been engaged in legal battles over the site for several years.

More than 100 sites

Now the council has won out, it faces costs including the bill for clearing the site.

Tony Ball, deputy leader of Basildon District Council, said: "This is not an easy decision and I have no pleasure in making it.

"Basildon already has over 100 sites to look after as we are the leading provider of sites in the country.

"We believe that to maintain the integrity of our planning laws we have had to carry out this action.

"Now we must decide who pays for it if the Government fails to give us more money."
£1.6M to evict people who shouldn't have been there in the first place. Now the council tax payers have to pay to 'get rid!' Small price I say to stop the increase in violence, intimidation, despoiling of the countryside, crime, fly tipping etc. Now why don't they do this in Ireland? Have the Irish made a law against it?

Awaits heavy incoming from 'Socialist Workers' (socialist workshy) and Grauniad readers as it's bound to be a racist comment.

£1.6M to evict people

It’s insane that that should come out of council tax money.
These people have taken the urine out of planning laws to the point where they are now a joke.
They should be given heavy fines to cover the cost of evicting them, those that can’t pay the fines should have their caravans seized and auctioned off to cover the costs, possibly even community service or a short time in prison.

These people brake the law, they destroy the land they pitch up on and terrorise the local population. Local government need to get heavy handed with these chavs and teach them that it is not acceptable to brake the law.

Because the Irish govt had enough of them theiving, intimidating and lying for a living and came down on them like a ton of bricks, so they all came over here and stsrted to claim their 'human rights'.

Thought as much. It'd be cheaper to get a ferry chartered, put them all on it and sail it to Ireland. Then carpet bomb it!

MiB comes from a family originating in Ireland.

I would, however, like to know why every Government form has racial origin forms that include the categories.

White British
Irish
White Other.

What is so damned vital that we record every bog arab descendant in the UK? I refuse to fill this in...it is not a racial issue, it is fundamentally a load of crap. It is of no relevance where my parents or grandparents were born for all except the security services. The local council do not need this info except for pink and fluffly policy cowpoo.

This information is not required for any logical and necessary reason.

Why should the Irish be more important than "white, Polish"?
