    • The Metropolitan Police is examining allegations that serving officers used a closed group on the social network to post racist comments about Gypsies and Travellers. Both groups are officially recognised as ethnic minorities, and discriminating against them is illegal.

    It makes me wonder that if travellers and gypsies have rights as a recognised ehnic group, that scarbourough council are not infringing human rights and persecuting a recognised group ie us "travellers", with there no overnight parking rules.
    Just a thought

    So what? Closed is closed. Cabinet meetings, trials under the Official Secrets Act, personal conversations, information you give to your doctor, are all 'closed'. Do we truly feel the need in this country to stifle private conversation, as we have done with the freedom to speak openly? Pah. :(

    I think that the difference is between stating facts (xyz group trashed abc carpark by leaving rubbish after they camped illegally there) and broad sweeping statements (shoot the lot of the thieving swine). The second statement is not acceptable and it is this sort of thing that we all must steer clear of. The internet is a very public place - there is a difference between "closed" and "confidential"

    "Institutional racism is any system of inequality based on race".

    But if those classed as 'unequal' are British, how does this work? o_O

    Ah...I see. I think some need to disengage from their prejudices. They would be far nicer and happier....

    To be frank, David, it matters? Example:
    "The Taliban advanced last night, and killed four soldiers and sixteen civilians. They should be punished"
    "The Taliban killed twenty people last night, shoot the murdering swine." (y)

    Totally acceptable. :)

    Ah.......I see. I think that some need to answer the question, which they cant, and so they fall back on personal insults. :)

    Well, maybe you should be preaching to a few on here then David. Can you clarify 'unjustified' in the context of this thread? o_O

    Fine, this may be true but does this give them the rights to camp illegally on public and private property? Cause havoc to the local residents? Damage and destroy public and private property? Leave a mess for taxpayers(which they are not) to clean up?

    Not going to preach to anyone. I try to stick to the facts when making comment; what everyone else does is up to them and possibly their defence team.......

    Perfectly calm. (y) And certainly not fishing. :( I'm just searching for an explanation to your previous comment as regards the police. To reiterate, how can a group of people be "institutionally racist" against their own race? This puzzles me. o_O
