Today (Monday) in court, the Judge ruled that the resident’s case had merit: http://t.co/l2syLMe1 and there is agreement that Basildon Council will no longer be able to engage in the full site clearance they’d intended. The eviction of Dale Farm is looking increasingly untenable, and we have been told that tomorrow (Tuesday), Basildon council will be holding crisis talks to come to terms with the realisation that the eviction, originally priced at £18 million, is spiraling out of control. They are still hiring diggers to sit in fields, and Tony Ball was overheard saying that no one must learn the projected cost of the bungled eviction (and that he needed a break before he heads to the Tory party conference).
On Thursday, a judge will decide whether a judicial review of the eviction brought by the Gypsy Council can go ahead. If so, then the eviction will be delayed even further. If the decision goes the other way, then Basildon Council will try to evict Dale Farm http://goo.gl/cSFsj and could do so from 4:30 pm. In case that happens, please prepare to come up to Dale Farm quickly, and listen to the news, and follow us on twitter @letdalefarmlive for the latest information.
