LAST week's Hunts Post front page was headlined Stop or face jail and described how four men could face jail for daring to park 20 caravans on the land they own.
The Hunts Post over the past few years has been among the local newspapers that seem to be campaigning against travellers and Gypsies who apply for the right to live on their own land.
Of course, the press also attacks people who try to park on land not their own.
Councils are required to provide pitches for travellers and Gypsies by 2011.

So it is about time Cambridgeshire County Council and Huntingdonshire District Council started to give planning permission to travellers and Gypsies as most of the vacant lands will be sold off to Church Manor Estates or HHP/Luminus.
Instead of supporting travellers' and Gypsies' rights in providing suitable pitches for caravans, and young couples with homes, The Hunts Post would rather scare people as travellers and Gypsies are an easy target.
