"I have long argued that the giving of offence, and even hate speech, should be a moral matter but not a matter for the criminal law. That is as true on the football pitch as on the streets. We should always challenge racism. We should also always challenge attacks on liberties in the guise of faux antiracism." Kenan Malik

Gypsy’s, Travellers, Bigots and Pickles…

In the film below Conservative MP and Romany Journalist Jake Bowers clash over whether there should be more and better Gypsy and Traveller sites in the South East of England.

The Race Equality Foundation says it would take one square mile of land to provide legal pitches for approx 5,000 families thought to be currently living on unauthorised sites. Now break that one square mile into small pieces among the backdrop of the UK’s 94,525 square miles. Sod all isn’t it…

90 per cent of planning applications for Gypsies and Travellers’ sites are turned down at the first hearing to avoid angering local residents. That is a fact, irrespective of the current hysteria surrounding travelling peoples…irrespective of the likes of Ann ‘Bigotcombe’…irrespective of Eric Pickles and his new planning process to make lives for travellers ‘easier’…and irrespective of the lies of his Department For Communities and Local Government who churn out statistics as ‘facts’ with ‘a Liberal dose of massaging’…
