Travellers are the victims; Letters.
There are many sorts of gipsies, but true Romany gipsies are a culture of their own.
Unlike every other culture, no-one stands up for them when they're discriminated against, if they buy land they are kicked off it - yet not given anywhere else to stop.
Warwickshire (and Oxfordshire) has a severe shortage of traveller sites and seem to want gipsies to disappear off the face of the earth.
The government has made it illegal and immoral to discriminate against any ethnic minority, yet gipsies don't matter. With everyone hating them and hurling insults, is it any surprise they can come across as 'hard faced'? It's called protecting your family.
