Surely this must have breached their Human Rights? They should have had a grace period of at least 5 years like Dale Farm and then appeal after appeal?

They are a fun loving community, live and let live? I mean look at how much entertainment they provide on that programme ' My big fat gipsy wedding' with the glamorous dresses, bare knuckle fighting and dogs.
