As of a few hours ago Travellers are now officially recognised as an Ethnic Minority.

'He walks with his head down. No more' - Taoiseach recognises Traveller ethnicity in the Dáil


But all this is just a total load of flannel unless the Government puts its money where its mouth is.

Travellers must be provided with their own adult education facilities, their own police liaison officers, and so on.

Enda Kenny's announcement this afternoon seemed to bundle up Travellers with the Roma, but Travellers are Irish, and the Roma aren't.

Why would they need any of those, sure don't they just do what they want and everyone is afraid to do anything about it.

As of tomorrow free legal aid lawyers in District and circuit courts up and down the country will be using "ethnic minority" status as a get out of jail card.

So WHY do we treat them like scum?
We treat them as different.
But when they say they are different, we claim NO too?
If you were a traveller, what would YOU do?






Do you treat traveller's as your neighbours?
When you see some caravans moving into your town, do you think great I must welcome them?
When you occasionally meet some travellers, out and about, do you, curse them, ignore them, walk off grumbling about them..... Or talk to them?
You want to see them as different, but when they claim they are different, you have a problem?

On the basis that they have roots going back centuries on these islands like the settled community, they live a very different lifestyle from the settled community but they are most definitely as Irish as you or me.

The problem the settled community have with travellers is their involvement in crime and violence it is nothing to do with whatever ethnicity they might be but their lifestyle which people object to,but they are most certainly Irish without any shadow of doubt.

Expect slush funds for quangos, ridiculous rights to welfare housing etc etc that discriminate against ordinary people. I expect the Traveller quango lobby to go after free speech under the disguise of "race hate" legislation. I expect revenue, the Gardai and social welfare to be virtually powerless to pursue travellers in some instances for fear of the quango lobby and ridiculous ligation. Expect social workers hands to be tied and applying differ t standards to travellers. It's a racket it's main aim is to prevent the state from holding the Traveller community to account and extort as much benefits as possible from the tax payer.

Enda Kenny the leader of a party who are they supposed "law and order" party to implement hipster social sciences first year student rubbish like this. I'd love to know what the FG T.Ds think of this.

It actually stigmatises them even more. This is a severe piece of retard-ery.

Enda Kenny's announcement this afternoon seemed to bundle up Travellers with the Roma, but Travellers are Irish, and the Roma aren't.
The travellers have Norman names like Barrett, Ward and native Irish names like Connors, Maughan, and therefore are not ethnically different to most Irish.

Enda of the (Ireland is a great little country in which to do 'business')- crooked business, has lost his sense of judgement (but then again the man never had any to begin with), but as a consequence of this granting of ethnicity to travellers, just like the illegal immigration question, when the Muslims get a grip here, they too will try to push for ethnic status (and Sharia Law) - and the Jewish community (deserving) will too. The large numbers of EU people (Polish) etc, living in Ireland would be entitled to seek ethnicity also.

Come on, let's get the ball rolling.

But what about the rest of the majority ordinary genuine Joe Soaps' who have the same Norman and Irish names, who pay the taxes, they should apply too. But of course they are walked on because no politician support them or are interested in setting up a quango to further their ethnicity too.

Politicians in general are showing their liberal PC'ism, and simply walk all over the majority who are silly enough to vote for them.

Our politicians are indeed gob************************es - they hand out freebies left right and centre, to illegal Muslim migrants and out of control travellers, and they think this 'progressive', but the question we all must continue to ask - where is the dosh/money going to come from to support these hair-brained schemes they continue to inflict upon us.

Travellers are the only group recognised, if anything it's discriminatory and racist. It comes back to what I said all along, travellers want superior rights not equal rights.

Expect massive ligation of pubs, restaurants, hotels etc. Similar to when the equality authority had to be virtually wound down because it was being used as a vehicle by travellers to extort money from pubs and clubs. It got so ludicrous that travellers even demanded envelopes from some pubs in order to not take legal proceedings.

It's fncking ridiculous PC nonsense. Why not make Roscommon people an ethnic minority as well while they're at it. Some of the FG backbenchers must be blushing at this.

It's like FG are now taking their marching orders from the Irish Times. Zappone and her ludicrous Calais scum who are costing the state 250 grand per 'child' ( 40 year old man ).
