    This was the poll on this mornings Sunday Morning Live program on BBC1. You could vote yes or no on text or online. I saw some of the program but missed the result so looked on BBC webpage to find it. It says; The results of this vote are not available to the public at this time. Well, what a load of bollux that is, obviously not gone the way they hoped then. Does anyone know on here? Kelvin McKenzie looked well pleased with the result but as I said, I missed it......

    Never seen it, but I think France has taken a stance I don't disagree with too much...

    Why are we all of a sudden calling them Roma - they are Gypsies as in My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.  They obviously don´t mind the name otherwise they would not take part in such programmes.  Or are we talking about Irish tinkers?  

    Whoever is being referred to and I can´t see the programme or the vote not being in the UK, then like all communities bound to be some good ones along with the bad so if they are stigmatised they are probably doing it to themselves by parking in hospital car parks and the like.  This won´t endear them to the general public, however I do feel for the Greek couple their mistake was admitting they took another families child to help them out when they didn't want her themselves.  They have been lambasted because they are 'roma' yet if they had been doctors and left her alone they would have received government support.

    Not my choice of words, the BBC's. Call them what you like, we all know the type. Even their spokesperson admitted their will be plenty turning up in 2014 because of their treatment in Bulgaria or wherever.
