2. Often incorrectly used to describe the wave of thieving "Irish travellers" (also known as "pikeys", "dids" and "scum") currently sweeping the country(England), setting up their caravans illegally on public or private land (the police won't remove them either way, unless the land belongs to a judge or politition I would expect, then they won't be able to shift them to the nearest taxpayers front garden fast enough). The countryside is both their dustbin and their toilet. They refuse to pay taxes being as they move around, yet the still use the welfare and benefits system, as well as the NHS and schools, all of which are paid for by the taxpayer. Strangely enough, both the police and government seem to value these and other non-contributors much more highly than the people who pay their taxes and don't break the law.
'Gypsy' is usually prefixed by 'Thieving' because that's what nearly all of them do. They are filthy, dishonest rip-off merchants, and that's just their children. They are NOT cool - at all! As in 11 above, they do indeed carry stolen gear in their Transit vans, that is when they're not hauling off monoblock/garden rubbish/gas canisters to dump anywhere and blight the environment. They also shit into poly bags,which they leave scattered around their sites. The men are lazy workers (bit of any oxymoron, that!), and they travel the country in vehicles that have forged documents, and have no insurance.
They are scum, period!
