You may have heard of all the angst and fear some 'campers' in Brittas Bay are currently experiencing? No?
Well, despite the past few years of falling land prices and tightening of belts all around, the landlord of a certain site is insisting on his right to increase the yearly land rent -- by a whopping 15 per cent.

This is no ordinary campsite, these are no ordinary mobile homes and these are certainly not your average campers.
Tales of a place that the recession seems to have forgotten recently made their way to the capital, where they have been greeted with raised eyebrows of disbelief.
