DURING many years of reading local newspapers I have yet to read any comment about Gypsies that has been positive.

Always the negative aspect is given to further breed expulsion from entering into society. I refer to the article about Gypsies facing jail and to avoid this are back on the road again and being hated for what they are forced to do.

Of course, the real losers in this situation are the little children whose lives are constantly being turned upside down. Both sisters had obviously been excited about the chance of meeting new friends and getting everything ready for their new school. They are now on the road again, God knows where, their little dreams dashed again. It's nothing short of heartbreaking.

Are we being led by a nation of bureaucratic tyrants who are waging war on young couples and families, depriving them of services we all take for granted? Both councils should read the articles set out in the Geneva Convention, which firmly state that amenities such as water and hygiene facilities should be available to everyone.

It was very refreshing to read an article that supported the Gypsies' plight, to remain on land they actually own. These people are British subjects and not imports that seem to be arriving in massive numbers and being financially supported by our Government out of our taxes.

When Gypsies try to do the right thing and apply for planning through the correct channels, they are met with a barrage of obstacles that make the whole exercise futile.
