    I couldn't work out whether the outrage was supposed to be because that might be the case, or because of the idea that the Romas steal children in the night.

    Still no idea. I guess this is now another one of those institutional prejudice things that will get everyone on the media asking what should be done.

    Pfft, that's impossible. Everyone knows all Gypsies are dark and sinister looking.

    They must have used their evil gypsy magic to alter her DNA.

    But... but... it's an aryan child, so certainly it must be saved from Roma family...?

    I mean, it's not like it's a black-haired child that can be forgotten or deported with the rest of its family?

    Something must be done, clearly.

    :)

    On a more serious note, my other half's mother passed out on the Ha'penny bridge in Dublin a few years back (from a medical condition that, til then, she didn't know she had). It is a fairly narrow, often congested, pedestrian bridge yet not a single person helped her except, eventually, a group of Roma passed by. They called an ambulance for her, from her phone (after asking if it was ok to open her handbag to use it) and looked after her until the ambulance arrived while everyone else just stepped over/around her.

    So yeah, for us, quite a bit.

    Well that settles it but uh... Personally I don't see the resemblance. At all. Not even a little bit. Nope.

    It's fucking weird, actually.

    I'd fucking hope so, but there is no way that will happen. Just another example of a certain mindset that exists within the Gardai and how close some of them are to certain media outlets. It will be dragged out with internal enquiries and full reports (full, mind!) etc until it is forgotten about.

    They'll sue Enda for a blliyum yoyos and we'll be broke again and the Germans will all immigrate to have buttsex with our household animals and appliances as an act of revenge and an assertation of dominance. I've been fisting the goldfish in preparation.

    *He's clearly jealous because we have foreskins and can enjoy steak.*

    It's a reasonable train of thought tbf.
