She's a socialist, isn't she? She ought to welcome the gypsies with open arms. This a shining example of multiculturalism at work, surely.

A socialist with a £1 million house - how nice. All the working class who support that party dont have a donkeys chance of getting on the property ladder.

I bet this is not even her main residence.

There was a similar site set up at crays hill in essex a while back. Who thinks that the latest one might get moved on quicker than that one?

The beauty of this story is that it pits two of the most hated elements of society against each other. And the onlooker can enjoy it unfolding.

I'd love to know how they got the utilities in so quick - on a bank holiday.

Maybe we should all be allowed to buy plots of land in the country and park mobile home trailers on! I rather fancy somewhere like this as a holiday getaway:

http://www.woodlands.co.uk/buying-a-wood/d...tumn-mist-wood/

And then park a mobile home trailer on it for around another £10,000.

Hey presto, I now have a nice holiday place in beautiful countryside for way less than it would normally cost.

What do people think of this - should I be allowed to do it? Or not? And if not, why not for me, if the "travellers" are OK?

How long do I have to "travel" before I get special "traveller" status? Six months, a year, what?

According to wikipedia : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pikey

In recent years, the definition has become loose and is sometimes used to refer to a wide section of the (generally urban) underclass of the country, or merely a person of any social class who "lives on the cheap". This seems to be the meaning intended by Stephen Fry in an episode of QI, grouping together "hoodies and pikeys and chavs", and intimating that these people are of a sort who "go out on the town, beating people up and drinking Bacardi Breezers".

The term is considered to have negative connotations; even when it refers to others, many people still consider it to be derogatory and offensive. "Pikey" is frequently used as an adjective, as in "he lives on a pikey estate", "those clothes look pikey" or "(name of cheap shop) is a pikey shop". However, "pikey" is also occasionally used as a verb, a synonym for "steal", as in "Someone's pikeyed my bike".

Negative British attitudes towards "pikeys" were a running joke in the 2000 Guy Ritchie film Snatch, making the line "I ******ing hate pikeys" one of many oft-quoted lines amongst the film's fans. For his role in the film, actor Brad Pitt learned how to speak fluent "pikey" (actually a barely intelligible patois used for comic effect which became known informally as Hyper-Gyp and/or Speed-Pyke).

The American terms "trailer trash" and "white trash" are similar in the condescension and disdain with which they are used, though the stereotypes differ in some particulars.

The term "pikey" is used widely all around the fringes of Greater London and particularly in the region of West London near Heathrow Airport and all of the neighbouring boroughs, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Slough, Staines, Uxbridge, etc., where large numbers of travellers or gypsies have settled over decades. It is generally used as a description of those people and their classes or types and is therefore a stereotype of those people from the areas where in the 1920s to 1960s a lot of unused land was bought or occupied and unplanned development took place. The term "pikey" is also used as a pejorative term for those people and for their perceived traits. Sometimes, the term is used emotively and indicates an element of envy, because some types of work or business are viewed as "wheeler-dealer" or "pikey" business practices.

I would say pretty accurate description of whats going on next door to Tessa's house
