Bucks Free Press: 800 join Rasta's campaign to live in woods 800 join Rasta's campaign to live in woods

MORE than 800 people have joined a Facebook campaign to allow a Rastafarian to keep living in a woodland in Booker.

Last week’s Bucks Free Press reported how Mykelti Nnjh Seunarayan, 23, is determined to keep his unconventional residence near High Heavens rubbish tip.

Mykelti, a former Cressex School pupil, says BBC Three Counties Radio visited his tent this week.

The BFP could not reach him by telephone this morning but he has posted messages on his campaign webpage thanking people for supporting him, adding: "To the haters, open ur eyes."

Buckinghamshire County Council is planning to build a waste transfer station at the site.

Officials from waste management firm Grundon, which owns the land, have written to Mykelti asking he vacate the property.

A spokesman for the company said: "Grundon Waste Management own land at High Heavens, the majority of which is leased to a local farmer.

"We were recently contacted by a local resident informing us that the woods within this landholding are being used for living accommodation and that a number of tents have been erected.

"Please note that Grundon are not involved with the current waste operations at High Heavens or the proposed new transfer facility, nor is the land in question required for that development.

"It is simply that in line with our policy to protect our property from trespass we have informed the person(s) that their occupation is not acceptable and have asked them to leave."

I would like to say if he doing nobody any harm , he should be left alone.
.
If he is doing harm to people or other , then that may be a different matter.
.
I have read, in Caribbean research and survey studies/papers done in the Caribbean , that Rastafarian men tend not to live long healthy lives.
.
But that applies to a lot of other people too in this troubled world.

Vintery, mintery, cutery, corn,
Apple seed and apple thorn;
Wire, briar, limber lock,
Three geese in a flock.
One flew east,
And one flew west,
And one flew over the cuckoo's nest.

So it was actually geese flying past. I didn't know that - did you ?

And it wasn't really the cuckoo's nest , was it ? It was 'borrowed' off other long-suffering surrogate bird/parents.

So the cuckoo will eventually leave otherwise it will go very hungry if the other exhausted birds stop turning up to feed it.

Given Farcebook's losers won't live nearby, who cares WTF they have to say!

So let's ask the very simple questions:

"What written permission does he have to live on someone else's land?"

"What's the difference of what he is doing and Dale Farm"

The answers are none and no BTW.

s6blr asks 2 simple questions: the first is rather surprising given that he is open about occupying the land in opposition to plans for the site. The 2nd compares his occupation to the Dale Farm occupation which has no similarity whatsoever! He is protecting the woodland (he believes); they destroyed farmland. He has no intention of staying so far as we know once the woodland is protected.

Grundon's statement that "...Grundon are not involved with the current waste operations at High Heavens or the proposed new transfer facility, nor is the land in question required for that development." - makes it all seem unnecessary. However, this august organ (Bucks Free Press) has surely said that is exactly what Grundon are doing. What is the truth?

Well, that's about as tedious an evening as I've ever spent! I have read far too many of the very dull planning documents for the High Heavens waste transfer site and have come up with two conclusions: 1) the applicant seems to be Bucks CC and 2) next to no woodland will be lost.
The Waste Transfer Station will be built where the old facility used to be (on the right) before they moved it across the road just a few years ago.
One particular tree will be specifically checked for occupation by bats and the site generally will be checked for Red Kite and bat nesting or roosting before the (very few) trees are removed.

I THINK the initial plans may have involved more woodland loss but those plans were amended to stop that happening.
