The blame of course lies in the application of "Special status" to any minority grouping, not to the majority of travellers who in general behave reasonably well.

Just one of the negative effects of "liberalism".

Thanks for confirming you racism that te Traveller communitry are slave owners and people and Keith was lying when he claimed you were being "iroonical" - all I needed to confirm the motivation for your argments about Travellers here.
To blame an entire community for the crimes of a tiny handful of criminals is racist and to suggest that they kenew what was going on is totally without basis - and no court or no newspaper or media commentator has ever made such an accusation.
To suggest that a priest who has dedicated his life to help Travellers should find something better to do is racist.
You are a racist scumbag and so is Keith for defending you.
The reason that you never saw these common signs was probably because you were too busy looking for Traveller sites to firebomb - that appears to be the type of people you are.
The four (FOUR) criminals were convicted of illegally detaining workers - not of "slavery" or "people trafficking" - that was the racist spin invented by the gutter press and taken up by racists like yourselves.
Half a million Travellers were exterminated by the Nazis, who used arguments like yours to carry out their mass killings.
You accuse a few of us on this forum of having a "team" - take a look at your own nasty little pack - A pair of openly declared racists with Travellers, Muslims and Irish in their cross-hairs, Ake, who, when he isn't persecuting homosexuals and asylum seekers, is defending Trump the Fascist in the White House, and Bobad, who spends his time hysterically implicating The Jewish People by pinning the crimes of the Israeli regime on them.
All you need is a uniform and an insignia.

Travellers in Scotland are not a "race", most of them are from the same stock as myself, but are regarded as a "Special group" due to their chosen lifestyle.

The "special status" accorded to these people has resulted in their encampment moving beyond the law, having to be closed under the pretext of refurbishment and the inhabitants moved to social housing in this area.

Families in this encampment were involved in serious crime which I have documented on other threads. The "special status" allowed this activity to continue unhindered and the police were unable to carry out their normal procedures in fear of discrimination charges.

See the "Great Leader" has spoken about his support for a "United Ireland" referendum in Northern Ireland based on Brexit. Good I'm all for it, pity that Jezzer doesn't realise it might not lead anywhere as he appears not to have realised that if the result of that referendum in Northern Ireland was for unification, then there would be a second referendum in the Republic as to whether or not they would accept union with the North and the result of that referendum at the moment would in all probability be NO (The Republic of Ireland at the moment just could not take on the running costs of the North).

While he would appear to be all for such a referendum in Northern Ireland Jezzer is dead set against a second independence referendum for Scotland at the moment, he backs Theresa May in saying that any such referendum should only be held after Brexit has been negotiated. Again I totally agree with him.

BBC coverage of the announcement on triggering Article 50 last night was tremendously "Remoaner" biased particularly in Scotland. I found it incredibly strange that no-one seemed interested in explaining the time lines involved. They were discussing things as though things would happen immediately:

29th March, 2017 Article 50 triggered means that the UK will be out of the EU 18 to 24 months hence - so that takes us to 28th March, 2019 before an Bill could be introduced to grant a second independence referendum for Scotland.

The last one granted took just over two years between the Act and the actual referendum so the earliest a second Scottish Independence Referendum could take place would be the summer of 2021 by which time Scotland would definitely NOT be a member of the EU, Scottish businesses (Less than 1/5th of them) who trade exclusively with Europe would have made what adjustments were required to stay in business or market elsewhere between Spring 2019 and summer 2021, while the remainder of Scottish businesses would have been carrying on as normal trading with the rest of the UK and the rest of the world. The electorate of Scotland would not have to listen to the SNP's ludicrous and fantastic claims of "how life would be" as they all did between 2012 and 2014. The result of a second Scottish Independence referendum in the summer of 2021 would IMHO be a resounding NO to independence, but for arguments sake let us imagine that it was YES.

Scotland would have to create it's own currency, or adopt one over which it would have absolutely no control. The SNP Manifesto position is that they firmly back Scotland joining the EU - That after all is this major change that wee nippy keeps stating is the basis for this new referendum. Fast tracked it would take Scotland somewhere between 5 to 10 years to gain entry and membership of the EU and it would have to adopt the Euro as it's currency. So an independent Scotland would become an EU member sometime in the summer between 2026 or 2031. Immediately on joining Scotland would put 65% of it's businesses at risk and suddenly find itself not independent at all because it would have to comply in all respects with the EU that will exist in 10 to 15 years in the future NOT the EU of today - a great deal can change in 10 to 15 years and such change may well not be for the better.

No "claim" Jim, those named in the article posted were all tried, found guilty, convicted and jailed. The "traveller Sites" they operated from were not solely inhabited by members of this family. You tell me how on a small site with people living on small pitches you would completely miss out on the fact that your next door neighbour kept 22 people locked up in a filthy caravan, or unheated container, without washing or toilet facilities for essential human hygiene. And they reckoned that this had been going on for 20 years at least!!

The only "racists" here are the Travellers who deem themselves to be above the law who think they have a "right" to get away with this sort of shit and yell discrimination whenever criticised.

As for Father Con Mac Gabhann we all know how good Roman Catholic Priests are at looking into transgressions committed by their own and their own flock don't we. Possibly 15,000 vulnerable people in the UK being ruthlessly exploited as slaves and being kept in inhumane conditions is nothing compared to signs in pubs that by all accounts appear to be rarer than "Rocking-horse shit" that might, just might, cause offence. Think as a self-proclaimed humanitarian and committed "socialist" Jim you want your priorities recalibrated.

A Tale of Simple Traveller Folk

On reading stuff like this one wonders if the Old Testament didn't have it right. The punishment I'd hand down to these animals (Believe me read the article and you will find that to refer to those arrested as animals actually insults animals) would be a term of 20 years (No Remission) with the condition that they be held together in conditions identical to those they held their captives and that they be worked as ruthlessly and relentlessly as their victims were for absolutely no reward at all. Additionally I would seized all their assets which would go towards compensation payments to their victims.

Very true that the above linked article names only four people, however it details a similar number of sites described as "Traveller Sites" - Every single Traveller living on those sites would have had knowledge of exactly what was going on and as they permitted it to continue (Over a 20 year period at least) they, in my mind are as guilty as those arrested. By NOT acting and doing what they must have known to be RIGHT they make themselves guilty by association.

The estimated number of people in the UK being held and treated in the conditions described number between 12,000 & 15,000. It is an absolute f**kin' disgrace, pity the likes of those such as Traveller's Priest Com Mac Gabhann couldn't tear himself away from searching for pub signs that some might take offence to, to address a real problem!!

This - from a review of our double album of Traveller songs by Geoff Wallis, issued bu Musical Traditions - the review is sitll available on their site

"It may be 2003, but the window of a pub just a couple of hundred yards from my front door still carries the sign 'Travellers by Appointment Only' and they don't mean salespeople from the snacks industry. In many other ways, however, the lives of Irish travellers in England have changed substantially since Jim Carroll and Pat Mackenzie made these recordings of their songs and stories between 1973 and 1985 (with the assistance of Denis Turner). As the collectors note, the ready availability of the portable television was already sounding the death knell for the fireside gatherings at which many of these songs were passed on."

If the sign "Travellers Strictly by appointment" did not result in a prosecution by the CPS then it surely cannot be illegal.

Rag, I doubt that travellers haul their caravans behind them to the pub.
"Hobby" is just a large German manufacturer of large caravans. Your signs refer to sites. Recreational sites are not all suitable as stopping places for travellers who will often want to run their businesses from the site.

By the way Jim, if you put those signs up on your CD cover doesn't that make you as guilty as the landlord?

If the sign "Travellers Strictly by appointment" did not result in a prosecution by the CPS then it surely cannot be illegal. It is still the right of the Licencee to serve who he wishes to serve as he/she and he/she alone is responsible for his/her "house" being orderly.

I think the only signs ever seen restricting who could go into a pub concerned people wearing "team colours". Never ever seen one concerning Travellers - so not so common at all then Jim, and Keith's logic in relation the Traveller's priest is flawless.

Whatneeds to be remembered here is that because of the acute shortage of stopping places in Britain most Travellers live on the fringes of the law and rely on keeping a low profile because they are forced to camp illegally.
It is highly unlikely that Travellers will report discriminating pub landlords to the police for fear of drawing attention to themselves being stopped illegally - it is this that maked the Weatherspoon's case both unique and groundbreaking
Pretending that these notices don't exist really have repercussions far beyond being refused service.

I refer you to signs saying "NO HOBBY CARAVANS"

Thankfully today people would be prosecuted if they displayed a sign saying "NO TRAVELLERS" although given that the CPS choose not to prosecute in the case cited by Jim that is not guarenteed.

Simply saying "NO HOBBY CARAVANS" is sufficient to deter travellers from trying to use a site but stays within the law.

Same meaning just different wording.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Total bollocks. Total football. Johann Cruyff. Let's all get total!

Jaysus, Bill, go to bed. We don't want you waking up dead in the morning. I'm off.

Jim Carroll - 27 Mar 17 - 06:33 AM

"it would just take an anonymous call to the police to get one removed and the perpetrator in a heap of trouble." - Keith A presumably.

From the evidence you have chosen to dishonestly ignore Keith]
"It is in the interests of the police and society that they pursue these cases of discrimination, otherwise Travellers will rightly feel aggrieved and disconnected.
Yesterday, I received a phone call from Islington Police Station. The CPS have decided not to pursue any action against the pub."
Jim Carroll


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. Having said that though Jim it is up to par with your usual line in total bollocks (To use the term as defined by Steve Shaw).

This from faithful "little Sir Echo":
Raggytash - 27 Mar 17 - 11:50 AM

"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.
Given his interaction with the travelling community it would seem a logical assumption."


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!

Got three of those recipes printed out. Mrs Steve is a genius with the wireless printer. Definitely got more than nine, Jim, including all three bonus ones on works of art. Tough do tonight, though. Semi-finals can't be made too easy!

What a bizarre coincidence. Night in watching TV and on the tablet if you hadn't gathered. Flicked over to "Foyle's War" and the background is Jewish student talking about the Palestinian issue and being attacked by fascists! Set just after WW2. Churchill just described as a "Jew lover". Serendipity?

Well, got 4 answers right on university challenge tonight. White, the Peak district, the Yorkshire Dales and I have forgot the other! Anyone remember a contest back in the 70's I think, where Salford disgraced themselves good and proper. Or did I imagine it? It was the 70's after all :-)

Was dull most of the day here but the sun has come out again now. Just found out we are having the grandsons some of next week so hope to spend some time with them around the countryside. 'Adventures' they call them and who am I to contradict :-) Took the eldest up to Lund's tower and Cowling pinnacle last Easter so it's the youngest's turn this time. He has his priorities right and has already picked what he wants on his sandwiches :-) If he manages that OK I may take them both round Ingleton Waterfalls over the weekend. Should be a lot more flora around than when I last went in February!

Cheers

I can top that Steve, we went for a drive round the Aughrus Peninsula (very beautiful area) the temperture did not drop below 19 degrees, far warmer in sheltered spots. The last I fear for a few days though.

Spring in springing out all over the place, lambs, foals and calfs in many fields ............. it's good to be alive.

A stunning guitarist last evening, and I mean really, really stunning. With any luck, if I can stand another night out, there will be even more music tonight !!!
