sapper82 BS: Slavery still active- (198* d) RE: BS: Slavery still active- 12 Sep 11

I can not for the life of me understand why "travellers" have protection from so-called Racial Abuse simply because they have a different lifestyle to other people.

To me it seems that a large number of them, ok, yes a minority perhaps, but a VERY noticable one, seem to go out of their way to justify the prejudices people feel against them.

As a Railwayman I am well aware of the havoc and disruption caused by scrap metal thieves and am also aware that the majority of cases where prosecutions have taken place have involved these so-called "Travellers."

Trying to silence people from telling unpleasant or inconvenient truths with accusations of Racism is an old tactic that is loosing it's effect.
