    .

    I asked under the FoI for details of the enormous number of complaints the council had received in the three years prior to my request. The council acknowledged and told me that they were entitled to up to 20 working days to answer me. The twenty working days came and went and no reply. I sent Reminder No 1 no acknowledgement and no reply. And the same for Reminder No 2. Reminder No 3 was a little more assertive but I did get a reply that my request was being attended to. Reminder No 4 was not really a reminder; I told them I'd asked the Information Commissioner to remind the council of its statutory duties.

    I received details of the enormous number of complaints a few minutes ago. There were five.

    One is dated 20th June and is therefore a complaint made after my request, after the issue was made public and after the assertion of an enormous numher of complaints. I can ignore that one for the time being it could well have been a response to the outrage the council is attempting to create rather than a genuine complaint.

    But, anyway, there are still four - and that's more than most councils receive. Mostly there are none.

    All four (or five) are articulate and plausible and on the same lines as this one below. So, we can get the idea that it's our discharge of rubbish that's the problem. As always.

    Apart from the complaint which was only made weeks after the council began its campaign, none are dated. I have no idea when the complaints were made. For all I know they could have been made up in the weeks since my request. I've asked for the dates.

    I've been invited to talk by telephone with a senior council employee.

    But situation is normal. Council alleges enormous number of complaints FoI says four.

    Or maybe just leave the toilets open overnight, that doesn't sound too expensive.

    Ironically I visited Filey on Tuesday, 7 pm ish went down to cobble landing and lots of people, council had closed the toilets....Do people have no need to answer the call of nature after 7 pm ? Where are they going ?

    When treating the general population in this manner odds of wilders getting facilities seems remote

    Luckily there are still some parts of the country where people are happy to leave wild campers alone.

    True, I do find it a sad indictment of our society though someone can go missing for over 12 months un noticed. I think his circumstances significantly different to wild camping.

    There are of courses instances people don't want to be found, When I was full timing I bumped into a few folk who chose social isolation for some reason I don't think all were axe murderers on the run from the law, but almost all came with a story matrimonial collapse, chasing a dream etc

    Over the last few years lots of toilets in Cornwall have been closed, they have no respect for the main source of income, take the money and run.

    From my reading of comments on these issues on M/home sites/forums;
    Paradoxically the people most likely to complain about other motorhome owners, are certain
    sections of the campsite m/homer fraternity themselves, who actively search for any excuse to
    denigrate those that have the temerity to wildcamp, or that fits their FLT Free Loading Tosser
    definition.

    They just cannot entertain the thought that someone is "getting away with something" particularly
    something for which they themselves have chosen to pay for. What better way or easier way to get even,
    and make things difficult, than to point out sanitary indiscretions whether real or imagined to the all too
    willingly attentive campsite owners. And he hears just what he wants to hear before he approaches the L.A.

    This is not to say there aren't some irresponsible wilders and FLTs out there of course, just pointing
    out a disproportionate representation of moaners as compared to the general public are to be found in our
    own ranks as it were, known as the TBs (Treacherous Basturds)
