In February I posted about the Coalition's "Affordable Homes Programme - Framework 2011-2015" from which, in the Foreward by Grant Shapps, we learn:
"So Government is getting out of the way where it needs to, and is supporting you where it can. Ultimately, though, delivery depends on the initiative of providers, and the support of local authorities and local communities. It is now up to you to deliver the homes we need."
This document purports to be Coalition policy and unless I am mistaken there is no reference to the European Union and acquiescence to any Directive or Regulation from that source.
Courtesy of The Albion Alliance Presents we now learn of this, detailing the requirements that Member States must implement in order to aid the integration of "Travellers" into our society, the strategies for which must be completed by the end of this year.
In drawing up their programme, the Coalition must have been aware of this EU "requirement" and it has to be asked whether the Coalition are not guilty of deception by not mentioning that fact.
Not that I am in any way intimating that our politicians - and Grant Shapps in particular - are in any way guilty of deviousness, lying, deceit, nor of being dishonourable and unprincipled.
You do believe me, don't you................?
