Now that Marco-Pierre White has been attacked by the CRE for using the phrase 'Pikey's Picnic' on Hell's Kitchen, I'd like to ask other ARRSE users what they think of the term. To me, Pikeys are the layabouts who woud rather go out thieving from farms and garden sheds than do a day's work. ; they are not the Romany / Gypsies the CRE claim they are. This is NOT a racial issue, and the CRE should not get involved. Comments?
