I don't ****ing believe it!!
The East Sussex County Council has just awarded 1.2 million to upgrade the Southerham travellers site, what the **** are they going to do with all that? put in a sauna, pool, jacuzzi, tennis courts, snooker hall, private heli-pad, poodle parlour, private health clinic, flood defences???
What about our ****ing flood defences, why the **** don't they think thats important, we pay their ****ing wages we put them in their jobs! Its as if they don't give a **** about us!
I'm a bit cross about this in case you hadn't picked up on that.

Maybe you could teach me the grammar Mark or maybe I should get someone who knows what they are talking about instead.

I agree with your comments smiler, the powers that be including the Police,appear scared of them. So they buy them off with grants and such like for a quiet life! Lucky heather selling and scrap metal dealing appears profitable? They drive around in Mercs, 4x4etc, naturally without insurance, road tax or MOT!

Like everyone else travellers have rights.
IMHO they should not be living in a Southerham layby.
Much better to give a sizeable portion of County Hall Lewes over to them where they could live happily amongst the staff.
Indeedy-do... charity begins at home.

What makes me chuckle is the fact that 90% of the year there is maybe the odd one or two tatty caravans staying and fly tipping in southerham. But now with all that valuable machinery etc in and around the building site for the new bridge, southerham is packed to the rafters. Like flys round S**t. Perhaps the 1.2 million would be better spent on catching the thieving scrotes and prosecuting them for all the fly tipping that they do.

1.2m could buy a bus station for Lewes. A cattle market. Even a zebra crossing ....... Anyway, we'll all be fly-tipping once the council start charging 10 for every rubbish bag we put out, blaming us for their failure to implement a sustainable (word-of-the year 2006) re-cycling scheme.

And taking about flooding. The Ouse flooded between Barcombe and Isfield yesterday... so Lewes can't be far behind. :-)

Regarding the site at Southerham and 1.2 million-do the travellers pay Council Tax and will they now keep the site tidy if the investment improves conditions?

No and No
They do not pay council tax, and once the improvemnets are done they will just rip them up and move on laughing at all the stuff they've just nicked.
Our only hope is that the site is closed whilst the improvements are done and then closed down due to lack of funds to reopen it.

I feel really annoyed about this! I live in Newhaven which is supposed to be undergoing regeneration-I don't feel much has been done other than now to use us a dumping ground for everybodys rubbish(the incinerator). Taking a simplistic view-do you get more if you don't pay council tax! I sometimes think Newhaven could fall into the sea and LDC wouldn't notice for about 6 months-or until they missed our Council Tax payments. Sorry to rant on as I know this is a Lewes site.

Perhaps it's for the best - we've got a climate hub and look what weather they're coming up with. Still, cold is the new warm if... more
