Pikeys/Gypsies would stab you as soon as look at you.

Story on someone speaking the truth on thieving, knifing pikeys....A Tory councillor could be charged with committing race crimes after he claimed gypsies would 'stick a knife in you as soon as look at you'.

Robert Fraser also appeared to say that Romany gypsies made Irish travellers 'look like complete amateurs' when it came to fighting.

The 59-year-old made the controversial remarks at a public meeting to discuss proposals to build a traveller site near a village in his constituency.

Unbeknownst to Cllr Fraser, his speech was filmed and later posted on the internet, where it has been seen by hundreds of viewers.

In the video Cllr Fraser is asked by a member of the audience about crime levels.

He replied: 'The Romanians - they'll stick a knife in you as soon as look at you.

'There might be some good ones.

'Forgive me if there are any Romanians here [to which the audience laughs] and hopefully that's a 'no' because I wouldn't get out of here. I'm a bit slow.'

He also told the audience: 'By gosh, some of these European ones, they make the Irish look like complete amateurs and I would dread, I would dread, to see them in Groby.'

Hundreds of local residents attended the meeting two months ago to discuss the proposed travellers' site near the picturesque village of Groby, Leicestershire....

Romanians have absolutely no ethnic or linguistic connexion with gypsies.

The gypsies, or Romani people, migrated from the Indian subcontinent in the eleventh century. The Romani language is related to other languages spoken in India and Pakistan, such as Panjabi. The word "Romani" itself comes from the adjective "rromano", which in turn derives from the word "rrom", meaning "man, husband". The Romani language is spoken all over Europe, wherever there is a gypsy population. For example, Welsh Romani, or Kaale, was spoken in Wales for hundreds of years, up until about 1950.

The word "Romanian" derives from the Latin adjective "romanus", from "Roma", the capital of the Roman Empire, and is thus linguistically unrelated to the word "Romani" (the similarity is a phonetic coincidence; in any case, the correct form of the latter is "Rromani"). The Roman Emperor Trajan invaded the Kingdom of Dacia, the area that is now Romania, in 101 A.D. The Romanian people trace their origins to the assimilation of the native Gaeto-Dacian population with the Roman colonists. The Romanian language, like Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese, is a late dialect of Latin.

In conclusion, gypsies, traditionally a nomadic people, are essentially stateless and generally do not recognise the authority of any state. There are gypsies who are "citizens" of Romania the same as there are gypsies who are citizens of Hungary, Bulgaria, Austria, Spain, Ireland etc. To conflate gypsies with "Romanians" is like saying that the 7 July 2005 bombers were "Englishmen". The fact of being born in a given country does not necessarily mean ethnic, linguistic or cultural appurtenance to that country.
