Replying to LO19761 --

Absolute rubbish. Squatting is the result of 'world new order' breaking
down, people/business moving out of an area leaving others to stake their
illegal claim. Quite often outcasts, for whatever reason, from the
existing 'new world' as you put it.

I would say that leaves your last statement fairly high and dry, it seems
unlikely that in boom times i.e. non-static, the first residents into new
areas are likely to be squatters.

Lets get back to reality, please!
