Gypsys, Tramps and Thieves

Had an earworm when I woke up this morning.

From BBC, Suffolk County Council has arranged for seven short-stay camp areas.

Cliff Codona, chairman of the National Travellers Action Group, said: “We estimate that there some 1000 Gypsies and travellers in Suffolk, many of whom are good citizens living in houses, paying their taxes and sending their children to local schools.

“But those that want to travel struggle to find legal, legitimate and safe places to stop, which is why short-stay sites are needed.”

The sites in Suffolk would have about eight pitches each and travellers would have to pay rent.

It’s something, at least.

For extra entertainment, head over to the National Film Board of Canada’s website and watch Opre Roma: Gypsies in Canada.
