Mr Harman in Hot ‘Pikey’ Water

Poor Jack Dromey is going to get an earful from his right on Mrs after a morning of banter with the lads down at Erdington Royal Mail Sorting Office:

Someone should tell poor Jack that since 2007, bizarrely, you can be prosecuted for racially aggravated harassment for using the word ‘pikey’. It has not been a good few weeks for Mr Harman.

UPDATE:

UPDATE II:

This isn’t going very well.

    Why is that then? And have they got enough prison places for over half the population?

    Of course, no one here in the Balkans has seen a pikey for years as they have all gone to Britain.

    English Gypsies & Irish Travellers are no different from any other stratas of society.
    The vast bulk of them are peaceful, work harding and are a credit to their communities.
    Unfortunately it is the remainder who create the problems, just as with every other group.
    Having spent years working with these communities, I at least have the benefit of direct experience, whereas the vast majority of commentators would not recocognise an Irish Traveller or English Gypsy if they bit them on the arse.

    Well, they used to work diligently to steal an almost new transit and drive it untaxed and uninsured, emblazoned with the words ‘ask driver for details’ on the back.

    Unfortunately, the government got in on the act and started paying them, thus reducing the entrepreneurial spirit, draining them of all initiative if you will.

    Some of them used to earn even more than MPs until that bastard with three names and a slaphead capped it all.

    Since all pikeys are Irish tinkers, often mistaken for thieving gypsy bastards, which they aren’t. They aren’t Romanies who speak a language similar to Hindi. So Pikeys are European caucasians.

    Urban dictionary says:

    Pikey is not a racial group, the term is used to describe anyone who lives in a caravan or shares the same values and “culture” of “the travelling community”, and whose main sources of income are as follows:

    Stealing cars, flogging roses in pubs for “childrens’ charities”, nicking lead off roofs, burgling garden sheds, blagging entry to old peoples house to rob them, doing dodgy tarmac jobs (“we’ve got some black stuff left over from a job up the road”), sometimes with mint imperials used as a substitute for white chippings, or, reportedly, using snow to lay slabs on when the sand ran out, stealing your bollocks if they weren’t in a bag and anything else that’s not nailed down and anything that is nailed down but will fit in the back of an untaxed Transit when nobody’s looking.

    Characterised by lurchers on a string, a unintelligible language that “isn’t English, it isn’t Irish, it’s just Pikey” (source: Film: Snatch), a penchant for harecoursing, ketamine, lighter fuel, fighting in pubs and shopping at Lidl.

    It enables their members to escape Lambeth and their kith and kin for a long weekend, head off to luxury accommodation far away from prying eyes where they proceed to shag the pants off each other, regardless of sex.

    Why haven’t we heard from that great feminist Harriet Harman about the Universities UK segregation of women at certain lectures? You would think she would be frothing at the mouth but the only sound from her is silence. Is she, like so many politicians today, also afraid of the religious extremists which poison our country with their cancerous views. I’ve just seen a poster which shows arrows pointing men to one side and women to another. Replace ‘women’ with ‘coloureds’ and ‘men’ with ‘whites’ and you have apartheid just like South Africa used to be. This segregation beggars belief at this time of the death of Mandela.

    My best mate is a doorman. One club he worked at used to hire itself out for traveller functions until the police told them to stop. Possibly related to the 11 response units and a helicopter it took to deal with the last one. My mate said what would happen is Irish travellers would crash the English traveller parties and vice versa, and then it got ugly. The only worse events he did were hip hop nights but let’s not go there, don’t want my comment reported to the offencd police.

    Trotsky's Ice Pick says:

    Diddcoit – in India they are commonly called Dacoits – theiving scumbags.
    The word “dacoity” is the anglicized version of the Hindustani word ḍakaitī (historically spelled dakaitee, Hindi डकैती or Urdu ڈکیتی or Bengali ডাকাতি) which comes from ḍākū (historically spelled dakoo, Hindi: डाकू, Urdu: ڈاکو, meaning “armed robber”) or Bengali ḍakat (ডাকাত).

    In Urdu, ḍākū ڈاکو is singular and ḍakait ڈکیت plural for bandits. The crime of banditry is known as dakaitee ڈکیتی.

    In Hindi dacoity (Hindi: डकैती ḍakaitī, Urdu: ڈکیتی ḍakaitī, Bengali: ডাকাতি ḍakati) means “armed robbery”. In Tamilnadu, the crime of banditry is known as “Dakalti”.

    The term dacoit (Hindi: डकैत ḍakait, Urdu: ڈکیت ḍakait, Bengali: ডাকাত ḍākāt ) means “a bandit”, according to OED (“A member of a class of robbers in India and Burma, who plunder in armed bands.”) Dacoits existed in Burma as well as India, and Rudyard Kipling’s fictional Private Mulvaney was hunting Burmese “dacoits” in The Taking of Lungtungpen. Sax Rohmer’s criminal mastermind Dr. Fu Manchu also employed Burmese dacoits as his henchmen. The term was also applied, according to OED, to “pirates who formerly infested the Ganges between Calcutta and Burhampore”.

    “Known Dacoit” (K.D.) is a term used by the Indian police forces to classify criminals. There was a great impact of dacoity in the Morena and Chambal region.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
