A Radical Solution?



It seems that the removal to prison of five pikeys from one thieving family has resulted in a 20% drop in crime in Gloucestershire.

You have to wonder if locking up loads more pikeys would reduce crime to practically nothing in rural areas?

Something similar happened in an estate near to where I live in Eltham, SE London. Two individuals were killed whilst driving on the wrong side of the A20 in a stolen car, smashing into an oncoming vehicle. Unfortunately, the driver of that car was also killed. However, the Police commented afterwards that as a result of the other two fatalities, they expected that crime on this particular estate would reduce by up to 70%. According to the the local rag, on hearing the news of the two deaths, the landlord of the local pub was providing drinks on the house amidst wild celebrations from relieved estate dwellers.

Here in Warwickshire the police are holding a "Party" for pikies on this coming Saturday. Cost is £2000 according to the local rag. And the police have the nerve to invite us locals to it! Meanwhile they get away with thieving and ignoring planning permissions. My god almighty what have we come to?

Had a friend in Kings Lynn who had a 4X4 stolen. She guessed pikeys had stolen it, and from a distance saw it parked on their(?) site. The police refused to do anything however, in case they upset a racial minority.

What about Tony Martin? Continuously robbed, and allegedly, (according to a mutual friend) threatened with dire consequences unless he paid his brothers debt off to the same people who were robbing him. The police refused to protect Martin, but were quick off the mark when he accidently shot one of the bastards, in a desperate bid to protect himself and what was left of his property.

We all know there's a simpler, cheaper and more effective solution.
