It seems being treated the same as everyone else ISN'T what's best for travelers after all

Where was the European Committee of Social Rights when the Irish State loaded EU banks private sector debt on the Irish tax payer?

Where were they when the state owned Irish banks started to evict people from their homes because they couldn't afford their mortgage?

Now they're criticizing the government for not looking after the least productive subset of society.

State is violating Travellers

Equality bites - travellers finally getting treated like every other citizen and they don't like it.

Still a long way to go before they get treated like the rest of us but at least this might be in the right direction.

Can I rob a laptop please? And can I race a horse down a motorway without paying the toll.

Why can't the strong bare knuckle fighting alpha males get a fúcking job and pay their way like the rest of us?
the last line should be a banner headline, alongside vadalkars picture

You are right,they don't want to pay water charges,property tax,rubbish bills or any of it - they are a special ethnic group remember(an inbred version of the irish people) they want state funded dirt horse tracks,where we can sponsor their wanton abuse of animals, they are full of the proverbial and if you call them out on it - they get very violent...:evil:

Maybe that committee should come to Ireland and enjoy the reality of traveller ''culture'' before passing judgement. Travellers choose the lifestyle they lead. They have always been lawless and anti-social and the word traveller is redundant now as the only travelling they do is to weddings and horse trading fairs. They have the same opportunities and rights as settled people but refuse to play by the rules or obey the law. Society does not owe them anything. This is just another example of a minority wanting to be more equal than the rest of society. They are basically just people who choose to live in caravans.

Or live in caravans and use state provided housing as warehouses for carpets and furniture.

Lets treat them equally. If I paid no taxes, made public land into a waste dump and lived and fought like a traveller, I would be locked up in jail very fast. Why the difference?
