So what kinda thing are you suggesting instead?

Finally got round to looking up the Poole's Land situation BTW. Basically, they started getting some planner harassment because they were charging for camping without having a license to do so, and this was round the time Poole wanted to quit. Why the state waited 30 years to object is anyone's guess; seems they were happy with the cheap housing for local precarious workers. Poole was selling the land before he died, either to the residents' collective or else he was gonna use the proceeds to buy them a site which was more remote and less subject to scrutiny (I kid you not). They admit in the videos they are the "end of the line" for people who are "refugees from the modern economy", lots of people with "mental health" or "addiction problems".
