Enough is enough
this is a politically rough and ready forum - that's expected, it comes with the territory and in a way, it can be stimulating.
When people start questioning something as serious as the state of their opponent's mental health is a different ball game altogether.
I don't have a lot of regard of what Bobad has to say - he is not particularly imaginative and tends to just repeat what others put up and confines the rest of his contributions to screeching insults at those who don't agree with him
Ake is a different matter altogether - he has questioned my sanity on half a dozen occasions now, and each time he has disappeared without being prepared to qualify his serious and deeply personal insulting behaviour.
A bridge too far, as far as I'm concerned.
If he had a shred of decency, he would withdraw what he has repeated over and over again, and apologise - or qualify his serious accusations with some examples of my mental problems.
I know, and he knows, that if he made such accusations off-line he would be liable to legal action, and if he behaved to anybody face to face he would run the serious risk of a smack in the mouth - nobody in their right mind accuses somebody of having mental problems unless they are qualified to make such an accusation.
He has already had one thread closed of late for his obsessive hatred of homosexuals and it seems that unfair that he is allowed to close another.
He won't apologise of course, nor will he withdraw his statements - he doesn't do that sort of thing.
Nor will he answer any of the arguments on any of the subjects he involves himself in - he doesn't do that sort of thing either.
If he or Bobad ever wade in the gutter with such personal insults again I will ask that they be expelled from this forum - as serious as some of us take these subjects, that is not what debating should be about.
I can put up with Bobad's mindless shrieking of "antisemite" - nobody other than his small circle of friends takes him seriously, and I suspect they find him an embarresment sometimes, but, as I said Ake is another matter, particularly because he takes himself seriously - spooky or what!!
As I said - enough is enough
Jim Carroll

Now he's making accusations of mental illness. He's desperate, Jim - and you've no need to guess what will follow this post. I note that he's cut out the childish "three turd" stuff after I accused him of stalking. Coward. Let him get on with it. I have a PM from one moderator expressing concern about his bad behaviour and asking me to draw their attention to his stalking. I haven't acted on it as yet.

I think that accusing someone of mental illness on an internet forum should get you expelled. The accuser is generally not a doctor, and, even if he is, he is not the doctor of the person he's accusing of being mentally ill. It's a shabby and immature tactic which marks you out as a loser.

Jim,
iIt is inaccurate - none of the four were convicted of keeping slabves - or did I maiss something

Yes you certainly did Jim!
The Independent
Headline, "Police rescue three male 'slaves' from traveller sites "

"Three men have been rescued after apparently being forced to live in squalid conditions and work for little or no pay in a new case of alleged slavery on travellers' sites."

"Detectives are investigating possible links to Irish traveller groups on sites elsewhere in the UK, where vulnerable men from Britain and abroad are said to have been kept enslaved in the face of threats of violence."

"The arrests follow a number of cases involving the forced labour of the vulnerable at traveller camps that have gone to court over the past two years,"


"In the first case of its kind, four people were jailed last year after a raid at Bedfordshire site in 2011 revealed the existence of 23 dirty and emaciated men who were forced to work under fear of extreme violence.
A powerful traveller family made money out of the victims
who were addicts they picked up from the streets and soup kitchens and forced to work for little money.
In a separate case, five members of an Irish traveller family were found guilty in December last year of keeping their own private workforce in Gloucestershire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire and paying them as little as £5 a day for their work."

"Jom, on the subject of the firebombing of Travellers Camps it would appear from the examples I have read about, the culprits are "fellow" feuding Traveller families."
There you7 go again
You should cancel the BNP literature you are reading
Firebombing sites is as old as pouring petol though the letterboxes of Muslims
Feuding among Traveller families, what there is of it, is largely confined to barefist fighting (same as happens in yor pubs around closing time - or on any street or city in Britain after closing time)
Serous feuding is extremely rare and is often related to a shortage of
sites)
It hits the media because it's considered a good way to denigrate a minority - siort ofd like Big Far Gypsy Weddings.
Your obvious hatred of Travellers is obvious and, if it is something you don't indulge in, it encourages those who do.
But please keep your racist stereotyping up - expose you both as bigots it's not a bad way to end the day
You pair really need a site meeting to get your story straight - one minute your not racists - next minute this filth.

Hi there Jim, care to fill in some of the gaps?

When was it that I have ever tried to fire bomb anything again? Lead such a busy and eventful life I must have forgotten. As you stated the following - "The reason that you never saw these common signs was probably because you were too busy looking for Traveller sites to firebomb." - You had best have proof of that Jimbo, as throwing those sorts of unfounded accusations about can get one into trouble these days. Oddly enough though I do recall why I have never seen any of those signs you keep wittering on about. It is because, counter to what you claim, they are NOT really all that common at all, in fact if they exist at all they are extremely rare.

By the way Jim, can you tell me the significance of a drawing, sketch, cartoon or painting in which a mouse, or a rat, with a knot tied in its tail appears?

"Travellers in Scotland are not a "race", "
THey may have not been designated a race yet, but DMA tests in Britain have found them to be a genetically identifiable group going back at least a thousand years - the British establishment have yet to get their heads around that fact
Ironically, Travellers living around British cities have been residents in their territory for centuries longer than the newcomer commuters who spend time and energy trying to drive them out.
Ireland has an appalling record of treatment of Travelers, but a couple of months ago it took the first tottering steps to rectifying it by officially announcing in Parliament that Travellers were an ethnic minority
Their lifestyle is not "chosen" (another racist misnomer) - it is one Travellers have been born into for many centuries.
Up to relatively recently, Travellers have been an accepted and essential part of rural life - 'modernisation' has left them in limbo.
They no longer have a protection afforded to them by the Caravan and camping laws which were repealed in 1994 by John Major, they are constantly being moved off unused sites, attempts to make their own sites, like Dale Farm are met with prejudice and hostility, and many Travellers who attempt to settle have been driven out by people who don't want than as neighbours
The woerfully inadequate (in every way) Traveller homes all little more than walled ghettos
Basically, most travellers are deprived of electricity, clean water, sanitation and the right to educate themselves or their children.
Their life expectancy is considerably shorter than that of the settled community.

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.

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.

Jim,
You are a pair of racist scumbags

Same old Jim, resorting to vacuous name calling because you have no answer or actual argument to make, except "Bye---eeee"
Nothing racist has been said here by anyone.
None of us who live here have seen a single one of those "common throughout Britain" signs in our lives.

Re Labour Party,
Today is Livingstone's suspension hearing over alleged anti-Semititism.
And,

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!!

As you claim not to be a racist, can I assume that you dissociate yourself from Teribus's attempts to smear the Travelling community with the actions of a criminal group?
No?

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.

The CPS can decide not to prosecute for any number of reasons as I am sure you know.

Jim,
Nowhere does he say he has never seen one - you made that up

It is ludicrous to suggest he had seen other examples and not mentioned it in that article.

If they really were "common throughout Britain" we who live here would have seen one.
We still haven't.

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.

Keeping a low profile and not drawing police attention to yourself also becomes quite essential when you are engaged in human trafficking and slavery too Jim.

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.

The tricjk has become 'Travellers by appointment only" THere's a sign saying this to the notes of our Traveller CD on Musical Traditions)
Another is not to refuse them entry but to ignore then when they try to buy a drink
In Bristol, they put the signs inside the bar so they can't be sptted outside

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.

"That makes it clear and obvious he had not seen one before.!No it does not
He is a prison chaplain for Travellers - he is bound to be aware of them
He merely expresses his surprise to see one openly displayed in central London now thet=y are illegal - a relatively new thing
Nowhere does he say he has never seen one - you made that up
Your whole defence of these has been a confused string of lies from start to finish
You say you are not denying that they existed yoe you write
"How can they be common if no-one has ever seen them except a well known Mudcat liar?"
If you don't deny them why accuse me of making them up?
You are a squalid racist Keith - Travellers are only one of your targets.

He goes on to say,
"I was surprised that in multi-cultural London a sign like that could remain in the open for some time"

It is not his experience that "No Traveller signs are common throughout Britain."

He was "surprised" to see one.
