Tony Ball: Community Wrecker of the Year Award Ceremony

7PM // Monday 27 February // Westminster City Hall

Tony Ball, leader of Basildon Council, has been nominated for the award of Council Leader of the Year by the Local Government Information Unit “in recognition of his role spearheading the eviction of Travellers from Dale Farm”. The award ceremony takes place on Monday 27 February at Westminster City Council.

For more info, see:


Not wanting Tony Ball to miss out on ALL of the recognition due to him, we will be presenting him with an alternative ‘Community Wrecker of the Year Award’.

In particular, the Dale Farm community would like to thank Tony Ball for his spectacular and unique achievements:

– CLARITY OF VISION: particularly his desire to deal with the problem that there are ‘too many Travellers in Essex’ [Tony Ball]

– OUTSTANDING COMMITMENT TO HIS ROLE: Tony Ball said he would resign if he did not evict Dale Farm – the eviction was about the continuation of his career and not the welfare of the community.

– EFFICIENCY SAVINGS: spending ‘only’ £7 million of public money on evicting the Dale Farm Travellers from the land that they own.

– HOUSING: making 83 families homeless, and refusing them to offer them alternative sites.

– PUTTING CHILDREN FIRST: protecting the interests of the first literate generation at Dale Farm by forcing them away from the local school.

– PROTECTING THE GREENBELT: Tony Ball transformed a beautiful home into a bombsite filled with sewage and old scrap.

– ACCOUNTABILITY: upholding the planning law by evicting Dale Farm and giving planning permission to a Dogs Home two months later in the same area of ‘protected greenbelt’.

– STRONG RELATIONSHIPS WITH COMMUNITY GROUPS: ‘allowing’ the displaced Dale Farm residents to stay on the private road leading to their former home in unsanitary and cramped condition, cutting the electricity supply.


You are cordially invited to join us outside Westminster City Hall, for the presentation of the award, Tony Ball’s acceptance speech and a rowdy reception.

Join us to let Tony Ball know what we think of his ‘achievements’ at Dale Farm.

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I am deeply honored to be given this award. It has taken a long time and cost millions of pounds of other people’s money to achieve this. It has been a long journey and it was a true team effort with total commitment that we have achieved what we have set out to do.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank my fellow Basildon Councilors and John Baron, our local MP for standing shoulder to shoulder with me. Also, Teresa May, the Home Secretary who so kindly provided us with thousand of Extras, the Riot Police equipped with tazer guns and visually stunning Riot gears, no expense was spared with this Cat Lady as far as sending out riot police is concerned. Without her sending us these fabulous Extras, we would not have the ability to create such dramatic settings for the footages that are now viewed by millions around the world. These footages are not just there providing the entertainment, with wowing factor, they are also truly educational, for instant, people in China can now see with their own eyes how a mature democracy like Britain treat its minorities, This was democracy in action, much better than the boring Prime Minister’s question time in the House of Commons. I am sure there was no comparison as far as the viewing rating war was concerned, we win hands down every time.

    I would like also to thank Eric Pickles and Len Gridley for their ingenious comic talents that provided numerous hilarious moments, timed to the perfection.

    Finally, I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my mum, my dad and most of all, I must not forget to thank God, I would like to thank God for not making me born into a travelers family or indeed into a Jewish family when Adolf Hitler was still around. I must say that I am grateful to God that I was born a white English boy, without God’s hand, this achievement at Dale Farm may have never happened.

    I always knew since I was a little boy that one day I would be famous. I am very glad that now my name will be remembered like many other famous people. A very big thank you for those who invested in me and believed in me. This award is for all of you too.
