The appeal court judges competence and humanity should be very strongly questioned, in view of their decision and accompanying comments.

But the law is the law and you have opportunistically seized on the fact that the judgement went against the travellers to traduce the legal process. Almost like the Dale Farm travellers themselves who welcomed court decisions when in their favour then refused to comply when judgements went against them. Reply Link Tara 30 March 2012 at 10:27 I agree with the second comment. The law IS the law. Humanity is heavily considered during court judgments, but it is not supported with reference to preference. The travellers were offered a reasonable and suitable accommodation (council house), whilst none of their Human Rights were breached during this process. It is not completely mundane to suggest their reside in a house till they can legally find land to live on. Reply Link Anonymous 10 April 2012 at 17:43 How exciting!
