Eileen Flynn halting site taxi issue

    Eileen needs a reality check. She needs to ask herself why the taxi driver was afraid to drive into a halting site. Why was he afraid Eileen? Instead of asking herself this question she screams discrimination.

    Tbf I’ve been in and out of halting site loads of times doing various bit of jobs and not 1 thing ever happened. I’d be surprised if anything happened given who he was dropping. Maybe he’d had previous issues with someone though.

    I think that is the apt comparison.

    There is significant discrimination against the travelling community and this must be called out when it happens. This is not an example of it, and doesn't do the just cause of the travelling community any good.

    I wonder who turned this piece of land adjacent to a halting site into a giant dump. And nobody will go clear it, why would they.

    The lone taxi driver, or even the lone barman in a small town pub, have nothing to fear from the travelling community.

    All those stories you hear are lies ...
