how is it everyone who writes a comment seems to hate anyone from the right? the left are liberal and inclusive and tolerant so long as they agree with whats being said. people in rutal ireland do not lije travellers because theirs is a legacy of crime.
I am from rural Ireland - and I am a member of the community - both in fact
Legacy of crime - who doesn't, especially when viewed through a framing of poverty and disassociation.
40k Travellers at least on this isle.... 40k... highly illogical to assume a collective have such a focus - and even if there is a concession that it is the minority, there perhaps exists a bias at holding a majority to the ransom of a minority; when the wider community are not held to such a standard, expectation or stance.
illegal activity is for the police - not for any community member to police - as if otherwise, lets discuss settled crime.
Great to see this topic discussed again on Gaire - it reminds me of the days in which we couldn't, in which the threads were not allowed, due to the fall out, pour out and fire it brought.
Long may we continue to grow
