So can I take over a field?
I HAVE read with total amazement that a lovely couple as I am sure Dinah and Stig Mason are, are being supported by local people in their efforts to be allowed to build up a smallholding in a random field of their choosing.
If that is OK then I should look for a field maybe with a nice view, park up for a few nights, say my vehicle is stuck so I can't move on just yet.
Then put the children in a local school quickly and say they are settled in and Bob's your uncle; carbon neutral small-holding.
Oh, and get people to sign a petition if that doesn't work.

They had a residence before this, so who put them in this position?
If they had £47k to buy the field they could have put a hefty deposit on a small-holding and bought one for about £350 to £400k and both gone out to work for long hours like the rest of us and still be carbon neutral.
Let's face it they tried it on and came unstuck, it's not that complicated. Evict them or let us all have a chance to do the same.
