MPs jibe at gypsies

#1
Another from the Sun:

A FURIOUS MP has asked for a £48,000 handout to make a film about taxpayers — after the same amount was given to a project on gipsies.

David Davies has applied to tell the story of “people who live in houses”.

The film would explain the “ancient code” of planning permission, clearing up rubbish and buying tax discs.

The Tory MP’s application follows a handout by the Heritage Lottery Fund last month to make a film on gipsy culture.


Ha Ha! Good bloke!

In this film about the Gypsies, did they include part of their 'ancient code' of stealing?

More PC nonsense
A story in the Telegraph revealed that a £48000 lottery grant is being used to make a film about the "traditions" of gypsy travellers. The film will be shown to schoolchildren in Hampshire.

I have written the following letter to the chief executive of the Lottery. If my application is unsuccesful (as I suspect it will be) it might at least prompt them to think about the double standards they apply when handing out barrel loads of cash to groups who want preferential treatment.

Copy of Letter to Carole Souter Director Heritage Lottery Fund 7 Holbein Place London:

I am writing to you in the hope that you might see fit to consider my interesting, vital and culturally-relevant application for a grant from the “Your Heritage” scheme.

Following on from the £48,000 you gave for the production of a video aimed at giving schoolchildren a greater understanding of the culture and traditions of “Gypsy Travellers,” I am very keen to commission an equally “useful” and “informative” piece of film that will serve to educate said “gypsy travellers” on some of the ancient traditions and communal practices of another group of people, who we might called “settled folk”.

I use the term to describe that large group of people in Britain who opt to live their lives in houses or flats. Although large in number “settled folk” often face prejudice and misunderstanding from gypsy travellers when they come into contact with them.

I should like my film to focus on such issues as the importance which the “settled community” place on property rights, their rigid adherence to an ancient code which they refer to as “planning regulations,” and the time honoured custom of clearing up one’s rubbish.

Should time allow we could also include a section about the cardboard circle which settled folk purchase annually from post offices and use to adorn their vehicles - known as a tax disc.


The film could then be distributed to traveller sites across the country to give travellers an insight into the customs of the settled community. I am sure you will agree that this film will be as worthwhile and relevant as the one currently being made in Hampshire.

I look forward to receiving confirmation that you find this project acceptable and will ask a film maker to get in touch.

Does anyone have a copy of/link to the Viz strip from years ago titled "The Thieving Gypsy B@stards?"

It was very funny!

Good luck to him. if all these minority groups can apply for funding then why not a group representing the majority???

Now, now, chaps. You know it's not fair to base your views of gypsies on the opinions of everyone who has ever met them.

They just get a bad press. Ask any copper.

Why only aim to show his proposed film on Traveller sites? These points would be equally valid in some schools alongside the film on Travellers; perhaps the scope could be extended to cover things like:

"Not behaving in ways that frighten little old ladies",
"Not using drugs",
"Being prepared to put something BACK into the community in return for the benefits it provides" and
"getting paid for doing useful work"

All are surely equally valid for Travellers and Chavscum kids :p

We could tweak the film to the gyppo's so that it plays a subconcious message.....something like 'go and eat your fekking dog now'
