Roma gypsies are great says Labour Party idiot
We must stand together to celebrate region's diversity, says Crime Commissioner
Tony Lloyd, the region’s Police and Crime Commissioner has called on Greater Manchester’s communities to stand together against hate and discrimination.
Mr Lloyd was speaking as the world marks International Roma Day on Wednesday 8 April. The day celebrates the history and culture of the Romani community and raises awareness of the issues facing Roma people across the world.
Mr Lloyd said: “Greater Manchester prides itself on its rich culture and diversity, welcoming people from all backgrounds with open arms. There is a real sense of community spirit running through every borough and every neighbourhood of Greater Manchester and the Roma community is an integral part of that.
“International Roma Day is an occasion to celebrate the diversity and strength of our communities and recognise the contribution Roma people have made to our society past, present and future. It’s also an opportunity to build understanding of the Romani culture, promote unity, tolerance and respect throughout our communities and make a renewed commitment to bring together people from every background, every race, every religion.
“By standing together we can send a clear message to those who seek to divide us that we will not allow them to spew their hatred here – they are not welcome in Greater Manchester.”
NWN : This idiot is the Police and Crime Commissioner for Greater Manchester . Has he not seen the crime figures for this group particularly in the London area ?
Just what contribution have Roma made to our society past,present and future ? The idiot Lloyd has made this up, cobbling together a few cliches. And why has this newspaper not questioned him on this lie ?
Mind you these Roma have helped to swell the numbers trying to sell the BIG ISSUE ! These Roma have only turned up these past few years.
