Technically a racist term, Romany apparently is the de rigour of acceptable, as gypsy is a derogative term used by outsiders to identify Romany clans and culture in a single stereotype. Although, most that I know don't have an issue with the word gypsy (as a convenience).

Roma is the term generally used within continental Europe

Odious:"extremely unpleasant; repulsive."

Ergo,I find Nige repulsive.I find Nige extremely unpleasant.

Just a point of view.But then again,I'm not prejudiced against having people of a differing ethnicity to me living next door.

One person's hero and champion of the volk is another's complete d*ck...

And as a defender of the moral high ground, I suppose you would be really happy if a load of Travelers parked their caravans on your front lawn?

Or in the field adjacent to the house.But in this PC age one cannot say that you wouldn't want 'Travellers' living next door to you.

They're not travellers if they live there

Live temporarily before they are finally moved on.

I've heard that there have been a few visiting Burgess Hill over the years !

Yeah there have and to be fair in recent years they've been moved on very swiftly. Last time we had them I got a load of them shouting abuse at me for looking a bit gay when I went running in shorts.

I'm sure you looked rather fetching !
Perhaps you would have got 'Wolf whistles' in Kemptown !

That's why Zaha is playing for the Ivory Coast.

As a matter of course when I fill in any official form that asks me to identify my ethnic origin I ignore all the 'British' options and enter 'English' under 'other'

Haha, I thought I was the only person that did this! My passport renewal got accepted when I did that recently. I don't know why I risked it, but they just accepted it.

There you go again.Miss (deliberately?)the point and have a gratuitous pop at Travellers (who,by the way,are not Roma).Colonel Blimp's grandchild ?

I wouldn't want anyone uninvited (particularly someone like you or Willo) moving into my front garden.

But,funnily enough,I shared a flat while at uni with a bloke who was Roma. Decent guy and a good songwriter/guitarist.In fact,almost certainly better neighbour material than the likes of you or Willo
