GUEST,Musket sans cookie BS: 'NoTravellers'common UK sign? (366* d) RE: BS: 'NoTravellers'common UK sign? 11 Sep 12

Here's an interesting one.

Measles is on the increase within the travelling people. Fact. Hard public health observatory fact and trying to be addressed by NHS.

The problem is that many travellers are not presenting their children for vaccination.

How many here would be happy with their children sharing a school place with children of travellers who are instrumental by their chosen inactions to spread this almost unheard of these days disease?

Likewise, sharing a pub, shop (benefits office?) when TB is on the increase and many refusing to come forward for treatment?

You see, badgers we can cull. Not everyone would agree but we can. Travellers are fellow humans who choose to dip into society when it pleases them. Well, society might want a say in that too.

Have regard to public health if you mingle with others. Pay taxes on what you earn and leave sites as you find them, rather than as a disgusting mess for the rest if us to clean up.

Then perhaps the signs, the very very few signs, might go away.

For now, bugger smoking in pubs. I want publicans to protect me from TB. I want schools and playgrounds full of kids who have been protected. In short, I want what society offers. It can only offer if everyone abides by simple moral decency. Not much to ask.

Actually it is whilst people who don't live here preach that we are bigots if we complain about hygiene, crime etc.
