    Second child taken from Roma family, this time in Ireland.

    It's got to be some kind of master plan to win Serie A :/

    Well, the title is slightly better now, but could probably do with an 'allegedly' in there.

    Edit: Cheers.

    Sorry Hairy, I edited the title again before I saw your edit.

    What was the original title?

    I'm going for "Gypsies in stealing things shock".

    I wonder what's behind this kind of thing suddenly becoming news.

    Also, shouldn't this be in the Random News thread?
  • Deleted user 22 October 2013 13:51:35
    There's probably nothing behind this. It's just two similar tales that have been mainstream news in a short period of time.

    I'm sure there have been kids removed from 2 white families if people looked hard enough, but of course that's not enough of a headline.

    are you kidding me, the right-wing press are going to kerplode over this, it's a preemptive 'omgz drama' story, I'm waiting for the first UKIP/Tory politician to say something incredibly offensive about it, The Daily Mail will probably demand a 'final solution' to the scourge of 'kiddy thieving gypos!!!'

    It's not even in title case.

    A simpler life riding horses and balmy afternoons learning to bare knuckle box sounds ok to me.

    You put "Roma's" for one when you meant the plural. :)

    I can't fucking believe someone slightly changed the title of a thread. In fact, I was so incensed that I put my foot through my monitor and sent Rauper the bill.

    "Romas stealing on children" I believe. Hairy says there was an apostrophe but he would.

    This is worrying news for those of us with dark brown hair and an olive complexion with young blonde children. Better start taking his birth certificate with us when we go to play on the swings.

    One of my children is ginger.....think I should dye him in case the police ever spot us?

    Did you see the travellers causing trouble yesterday - not just travellers, but French travellers!!! I hear the Daily Mail immediately flew out a reporter to check whether any of them were gay or Muslim, for the Perfect Story.

    Nationality is clearly irrelevant but then so is ethnicity but they always feel the need to mention it. You'd have thought that in circumstances like this, it would be allowed to evict them, it's (mildly) disrupting a public service.

    The poor grammar of the original title was a critique of the current press coverage, but whatever, you've sanitised it into the boring zone so I'll exit stage left.

    Turns out the girl taken in the case of the OP actually was the couple's daughter. Oh dear.
