if they're called travellers..
why do they kick up such a fuss when they get moved on? Surely they'd love it? Do I win a free pencil?

I have a Crackerjack pencil that dates from about the same time I first heard someone say that if you want it.

They'd like nothing more than to travel, as their ancestors did for hundreds of years
...but in this day and age, simply parking up in a layby for one night in an ordinary car will have the might of Middle England crashing down upon you.

basically, they can't travel, so they set up sites and live in vehicles to still have a sense of community.

...and they have rotten teeth
...and their clothes are never 100% clean
...and the girls are quite fit sometimes but you hate yourself for thinking that
...and the blokes like nicking copper
...and they don't like stereotyping
...and the 10 year olds are harder than your dad
...and most of the protesters are just wannabe gypos and/or tree-hugging hippies with nothing better to do than to go down and have a pop at a policeman and go on jeremy Vine's show and use the "S" word
...and they like their own, don't they?

I work in a local convenience store (aka corner shop)
which is owned by a rather large nationwide company. I can't belive the audacity of a certain gypsy who came in and asked if "the boss man" was about cos he was wondering if we wanted the area out the front of the shop tarmacing.
Can you imagin going into a Tesco Express (I don't work for Tesco, this is just an example) and asking if they wanted their car park re-tarmacing? Everything is done though a head office, stupid gypsy

Let's not get bogged down with semantics
Would it be easier to understand their plight if they were called gypsies?

It doesn't matter if they're supposed to be travelling or not - if they're there illegally they need to be moved.

I hope they don't move into my back garden though...
