Remove Gypsies/Travellers’ Status As A Racial Group

Comment 12th February 2015

The status of travellers as a racial group is undermining measures to tackle the illegal actitivites of (some) of the members of this group, whether it's breaches of planning law, trespassing, or other anti-social actititives where the authorities have to wear "kit gloves" to deal with them, because of their status under equalities law.

Travelling is a lfestyle choice, not a race, regardless of how many generations have been doing it.

Why does this matter?

Travellers shoudl be treated like everyone else under the law. They should not be allowed to flout the same planning and other laws that non-travellers have to.
