Fourteen people turn up at The Pearly Gates and ask to be let in to Heaven.
The gatekeeper bids them to stay there while he asks St.Peter.
"There are fourteen people at the gate asking for permission to enter."
St.Peter says,"Ask them if they have ever done anything honest."
The gatekeeper goes away and returns a short time later.
"They have gone."said the gatekeeper.
St.Peter asked,"The people?"
"No,the flipping gates. :shock:(Not quite the same is it?) :wink:

Roger
You have done prospective employers a favour. They won't need to bother interviewing you now. They can see you for what you are. Someone who posts bigoted trash and calls it humor.

To the Forum Moderators
If instead of "Travellers" or "Pikeys", Roger had typed Jews/Blacks/Pakis, you would have deleted this post as racist. I am asking you to consider whether this post should be treated the same way.

Mo - if you want to complain about the post you should click on the little yellow triangle. I think this is connected to an alarm which alerts The Moderators in the pub :wink:

Mo, not wishing to comment on what's PC or not, do you just watch this forum for weeks until something comes along for you to jump in and offer a wee snivelling grumble? Loosen up and have a couple of Primrose Oil tablets.

At least I can spell humour correctly.That should help at my next job interview.Pikeys are not a race but a nick name for a band of roving,tax avoiding thieves.That is reality,so how can I be dubbed racist? :?:

Furthermore,I am not referring to Gypsies.They are indeed a race.In my 40 year involvement with Land Rover vehicles I have sold many vehicles to the Gypsy fraternity and have always found them to be honourable and trustworthy.So therefore if you are assuming that Pikey and Gypsy are as one,it is you who is being racist.By the way,do you drive a Transit pick-up with a load of dodgy tarmacadam in the back? :wink:

Why? Did you just update it? Only joking Roger, as were you. The PC brigade should be shot, anyway. Then let's see them complain.

Maybe I am a traveller Roger. Maybe other forum members are too. I don't know any pikeys but among them there are likely honest ones and dishonest ones, like in all walks of life.
Your attitude is awful, wanting to shoot people whose views you don't agree with, or who have lifestyle you don't approve of. You even have a dig at my spelling. I may not have had your education, but my views still count. At least I am not bigoted.

Roger, for goodness sake, will you just apologise and explain very contritely that it was a joke and you won't do it again - please! I'd send on my supply of P Oil tablets but Hugh has had them all in a special deal we made.
