He goes on to say,

You have had masses of information and you nit-pick on someone who reportd seeing a sign to the police who, contrary to your excuse, did nothing bout it.
Your only defence of these signs is that yo have never seen one - pathetic even by your pathetic standards.
The longer you continue defending these signs, the more you confirm both your racism and your dishonesty in claiming you are not defending them
You lie whan you claim you are not doubting their existence - what is this if it is not casting doubt on their existence "If they exist at all"
Or comparing them to malarial mosquito
This is the second thread on which you have defended this racist shit - you produced nothing but "I haven't seen one in the past and you have produced nothing now
Face it Keith - you are a bigoted racist and one sick cookie

Butter Pie for us tonight, a recipe I learnt from my Grandmother.

Thinly slice and softly cook onions, par boil sliced potatoes and when cool layer them up on a pastry base, potatoes, onions, salt pepper, butter, potatoes, onions, salt, pepper, butter and finally potatoes, cover with a crust and bake.

Grandmother did it because it was cheap, I do it because I love it.

I suppose the addition of a touch of cream or creme fraiche could enhance it but my Grandmother was a fantastic cook and if the original was good enough for her it's good enough for me.

You do neither and you don't see the signs - I wonder why!!
This is the first time you have responded to a single piece of evidence on this subject, and that is to dismiss it out of hand
You have no comment that despite your claims that anybody putting up signs would be "in a heap of trouble" - the police did nothing
You are making unqualified assumptions on one case and still refusing to comment on the rest

Jim, that piece was written by Conn Mac Gabhann, Manager of the traveller project at the Irish Chaplaincy in Britain.

He would be highly aware of discrimination issues involving Trvellers, and must have been working with them for some time.

He found a sign in one back street London pub and expressed surprise to see such a thing. He had clearly never seen one before, and in the absence of a more recent outburst he has not seen one since.

That proves beyond any shadow of doubt that the signs are an extreme rarity, and not "commom throughout Britain" as you claim.

"There is no reference to date 29th February 2012, "
The date is there, if you bothered to read the posts that were put up, a larger version of the article was included - what you obviously picked up on was my reaping the statement in response to Keith suggesting that putting up signs would lesd to police action - the repeat and your cut-'n-paste are both in quotation marks - has nobody ever explained what they mean?
"25 Mar 17 - 02:36 PM "
I put up a whole series of examples of these signs being referred to
No - I didn't link to any of the quotes on that occasion - but they are all there and totally ignored by you pair of racists - Kieth has refused even to acknowledge they exist.
All are perfectly traceable - I thought i had linked to them all as I usually do.
As you refuse you qualify any of your statements, produce no links whatever and just make things up on the spot, you have little grounds fro complaint.
Now - you have the statement, you have another photograph and you now hane dozens of examples - here an on previous threads, of these signs
Ihave plenty of personal experiences of police behaviour towards the Travellers - thirty years worth.
"Five effin' years ago"
This argument has been going on for a few years - Keith is claiming that these signs are rare because he has never seen one.
J D Weatherspoon's was successfully sued by Travellers less than two years ago
I didn't realise that there was a statute of limitations on this discussion
Signs against Travellers, beggars and itinerants are part of a long history going back centuries and they continue - and your name-calling arrogance proves only that you are a bullshitter with no evidence to show they don't.

What link Carroll??? There is no reference to date 29th February 2012, no reference to the "Left Foot Forward" website and no reference to Conn Mac Gabhann. Your post reads as though the incident happened recently (It didn't), and that you had received a call on the 26th March, 2017 from Islington Police Station (You didn't) - If that isn't total misrepresentation Carroll I do not know what is.

"There is a very obvious reason for the Islington police to contact Jim regarding this and that is that he is the person to have made the initial compliant. The complainant is told the result of the CPS deliberations.

Then all becomes clear when Jim produces the link from the "Left Foot Forward" website FFS!!

"Yesterday [28th February, 2012], I [Conn Mac Gabhann] received a phone call from Islington Police Station. The CPS have decided not to pursue any action against the pub."

So Raggy, Jim had absolutely S.F.A. to do with this. His contention that today in the UK Anti-Traveller Signs are common has to be backed up by a single instance from Five effin' years ago. By the way with your posting record I would suggest you refrain from using the word logical about anything you assume.

Thirty years ago to this day (the 27th (I may be a few minutes late!), we had been in our current house in Cornwall for six weeks. That day, we had the most ferocious wind we'd ever experienced. It stripped dozens of slates from our roof, wrecked the guttering at the front of the house and demolished our 18'x12' greenhouse. Having been used to town life all our lives, we were too scared to go outside that day. Roof slates were flying everywhere! A bloke who was a teacher at my new school, who I hardly knew, spent a whole day helping me to pick up broken glass from the greenhouse. Some of it was fifty feet away. He's a lifelong friend now, his eldest son being the same age as my son, then in the same class at the local primary school. I still find bits of glass in my garden from that event.

We had fixed up the buildings insurance but hadn't even paid the first premium, but they still paid up! We had more wind damage in the October 1987 storm, the Burns Day Storm in 1990 and in another big blow two weeks after the Burns Day Storm. Since then, some entertaining storms and a few slates blown off, but nothing like in them good ol' days!

Jim,
You are defending the signs by dismissing them as being as rare

No. I am stating a fact that they are not common, and I am not alone in that. I do not defend them and never have or would.

I did not compare their rarity to malarial mosquitos, I made the point that recognising something is rare does not constitute defending them.

Now, if you were not lying again, quote me actually defending those signs.
Good luck with that liar.

Dave, yes you did make the point about coverage.
The fact that even Left Wing papers and broadcasters ignored it suggests they do not think the "massive increase" from 1% to 5% so significant, or "historic."

They were not up against the other parties for a start, so it is a very unusual kind of election.

Re local elections in City.
Your link was to Reuters, perhaps because so few papers and no broadcasters covered it.
Just the Indy (on line only) and the Financial Times.
Where was the Mirror and Guardian?

Perhaps this from the Indy adds some perspective to the "historic win."

"The Council has historically been dominated by independent councillors as the main political parties have tended not to field candidates in City elections.
However, Labour routinely contests some wards and in today's election the party increased its representation from one to five.
The remaining 95 seats were taken by independents or candidates with no party description.

Dave,
apparent contradiction between " I can not call anyone a liar" and "no-one has ever seen them except a well known Mudcat liar" then?

No contradiction intended. I do not accuse Jim of lying about this, he is just wrong, but he does tell lies.

Anyone could write such a notice anytime so I would not claim none exist, but that could well be the case.
They are illegal so it would just take an anonymous call to the police to get one removed and the perpetrator in a heap of trouble.

I do claim, with great confidence, that they are not "common throughout Britain" or one of us living here would have seen one.
We still haven't Jim.

Wonder why this has not been as widely reported in the popular press as when Labour lose a seat?

Historic win for Britain's Labour in City of London elections

Right, but just never ask me to stick to the thread topic ever again, Keith. Got my grass cut today. Good drying east wind made it possible. Damned hard work though. I've caught the sun. How daft is that! Lasagne with tomato, rocket and red pepper salad tonight, olive oil and balsamic dressing. Garlic bread. Prosecco and a bottle of aglianico from Vesuvius. As they say oop north, I could quite happily be miserable living like this.

I can accept that it may not say that they do not exist. How are you going to explain away the apparent contradiction between " I can not call anyone a liar" and "no-one has ever seen them except a well known Mudcat liar" then?
