I returned home one day last week having dispensed of some pretty foul smelling garden refuse from my client at Preston Park and found this makeshift caravan site on Preston Road, so, obviously, peeps, I took a peep and discovered more than I thought I would.
We all know how well-trained in 'diversity' are our beloved Brighton and Hove City Council, but they are not so well trained that they include travellers or people who choose an 'alternative' lifestyle.
The Council claim, apparently, or should I say, allegedly, that they need the land on which the travellers have settled, though quite what they need it for is highly dubious, given that they have grilled up the actual building and it remains empty while many more than the Council's estimated 7 men and women sleep rough in Brighton every day of the year. I don't know, perhaps they've come to an arrangement with Tesco or something, because doubtless Preston Road is in dire need of some kind of supermarket, given the terrible lack of outlets for multinational food chains in the city.
"It is so difficult," Johnno said, "to find any land on which to park and live in peace". The Council seem to hound these travellers and move them on wherever they go and although the living choice of travellers may appear odd to those of us who live in more urban or suburban accommodation, I am surprised, if not that surprised that this is one group of people who are deemed by the Council to be living a lifestyle that is clearly not in-keeping with their loving adherence to the State's vacuous, exclusive and patently biased obsession with the its unholy doctrine of 'diversity'. Let's put it this way, were 'Diversity' to be a night club, you wouldn't be able to get in if you were wearing trainers or the bouncer just didn't like the look of you...
