JUST TRAVELLING MEN…

By David Vance On December 15th, 2012

I see that slavery is alive and well in the UK thanks to these intrepid “travellers”;

Five members of a traveller family have been found guilty of running a forced labour camp. William Connors, 52, his wife Mary, 48, their sons John, 29, and James, 20, and their son-in-law Miles Connors, 24, were all convicted of conspiracy to require a person to perform forced or compulsory labour between April 2010 and March 2011. A jury at Bristol Crown Court found the Connors family guilty following a three-month trial.

They had also faced a second charge of conspiracy to hold another person in servitude but the trial judge ordered the jury to find the defendants not guilty of that offence. The prosecution was brought under Section 71 of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 and carries a maximum sentence of 14 years. During the trial, the court heard that the Connors would pick up the men – often homeless drifters or addicts – to work for them as labourers. The victims lived in squalid caravans on traveller sites as they moved around the country working on the Connors’ paving and patio businesses. Some were also ordered to perform humiliating tasks, such as emptying the buckets used as toilets by their bosses.

Charming.  At least they are now travelling to prison. I do hope they have to slop out.

  1. I am sure it’s no coincidence, but why do the Irish travellers always appear to be the worst of the worst Gippos, where ever they lay there hats, trouble, thieving, conning old frail defenceless folk, the theft of cash machines, the theft of just about everything in the garden shed (including the garden shed), flytipping, benefit fraud, inbreeding, relieving the local 12th century church of all its lead, Concreting over Greenbelt land, stealing old age pensioners pet dogs (and cats) and then defrauding them out of cash to hand the said pet back, setting up ‘site’ and reducing the surrounding landscape to rubble, ignoring the local laws and the police, ignoring all by laws and traffic laws, Tax Evasion, Illegal Badger baiting and Hare coarsing, Poaching, Destroying Playing fields’ Forcing local pubs to abandon any hope and making sure they shut down, reducing the price of any properties they set-up near, De-frauding pensioners out of their life-savings for building work not carried out and not required, Screwing up someones otherwise perfectly good driveway, Animal cruelty,giving the local Fashion police a full time job, Giving the local righreous council drone some serious ‘Righteous points’ time to wallow in the glory of helping a ‘Minority group’, Hanging around local shops sitting in white top of the range untaxed and uninsured top of the range Mercedes vans with Amber lights on the roof waiting for some sucker to buy a box with a brick in which was supposed to be a Flatscreen TV before the sucker handed over any money, Landscaping? in other words, reducing your pride and joy 100 year old Oak tree to a twig, and leaving what they cant sell for logs on the front lawn, And Slavery … will follow

    Apart form that I am sure (according to the righteous drones)that they are just misunderstood 😉
