Council 1: Pikeys 0

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by JoeCivvie, Oct 7, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. .
     
  2. So Cash in hand?
     
  3. That's more fuckin' like it. In an ideal world there'd have been more pitch-capping, but still a definite step in the right direction.
     
  4. Considering how vital Councils are always trumpeting their work to be, it's surprising more of them don't trouble to have a few staff working weekends and bank holidays.
     
  5. With Charlie Gs...
     
  6. If you read it properly he was only jailed for a day or so, as soon as he moved his caravan he was released. Hardly what I would call punishment for contempt of court.
     
  7. Maybe, but it got rid of the feckers without the need for anyone to wait ten years and spend tens of millions doing it. Compared to that, the cost of having a couple of bods doing shifts over the weekend is pretty insubstantial.
     
  8. Perhaps this is a sign of funding cuts? East Herts have just saved themselves millions of pounds of tax payers' money by acting quickly. They don't have a Government that shows more empathy with the Travellers than they do with the residents or who take a cavalier attitude to the Green Belt.
     
  9. No doubt they will be making their way south to Brighton - the Green dominated council has expressed its support for 'The Travelling Community' and unofficial sites have started to spring up all over the place as well as their usual haunts of local parks and any empty office block with an unattended car park.
     
  10. I grew up in Hertfordshire and the Cash's are an infamous local Irish pikey scum family, so it's good to hear they're getting what's deserved, albeit only a samll victory

    The little Cash Jnr's used to go into the independant shops in town (Hemel Hempstead) and offer to fight the manager in exchange for clothes/toys etc. When they were told to piss off, they used to hang around outside at closing time and intiidate the staff. Eventually the shop owners gave up and gave stuff away to these theiving ***** just to get them to **** off.
     
  11. Fixed that for you!

  12. So whats this bit all about then?

    "He agreed to remove 50 per cent of the hardcore he had laid "

    Why only half? Any money that next year it will be used as a base for an argument that they have been settled on the site so they shouldn't be moved on again.
     
  13. It achieved the desired effect; pikeys, caravans and concrete gone, if they come back they know they will be arrested and banged up because it is a criminal offence and not something where Mr Plod can wibble about it being a "civil matter". Mission accomplished; there's little point in keeping Mr. Pikey banged up at the taxpayers' expense once that has been achieved.

    The £8,000,000 question is why Basildon council didn't go down the same route many years ago.
     
  14. Perhaps they could only trace the proper owners of half of it?

    Does that mean the other half is still on someone's driveway?
