Who better to teach us Travellers are not violent thugs than a traveller who is a violent thug?

Do you mind not using the term 'settled' people?

Did he just assume the bankers were settled?

Isn't this guy supposed to be "cultured"? Have seen him interviewed before and he came across pretty well.

But the above is just ridiculous. It's quite a leap to, essentially, equate "settled people" as rapists and dodgy bankers...

I thought the clergy who abused children moved to different parishes regularly, would that not make them Traveller Priests

Funny how every one of his major roles on tv and in film have been him portraying scumbags. Such range!
you forgot the bit about him being an awful actor who can barely string two words together but still got some major tv rolls and was sent on a trinket to the USA to make a documentary about discrimination . Yet he still continues to whine about the way he is discriminated against

Used to like him now all he seems to do is crave attention, have his say as if its his duty to and bring the settled vs traveller aspect into it. He should stay quite or think before he speaks.

Chip on his shoulder... More like a bag of spuds. I watched one episode of his documentary series and thought who the **** thought that was a good idea..... The bag of spuds was evident and shone through in terms of attitude in that program.

Disappointed, but not surprised, to see the usual reactionary attitudes towards travellers on display here.

Connors has managed to carve out an acting career for himself against the odds. More power to him. He has landed an agent now and I'll be interested to see what he does next.

He also speaks the truth about our political class:

he has a big traveller head on him, has always played traveller parts and wonders why he gets only to play travellers?

that carboard gangsters movie - he was supposed to be the "leading man" but had the biggest tits of anyone in the whole cast.

his social commentary is dreadful and facile - never have I seen a bigger McCain chip on a shoulder.

Him trying his hand in the UK explains why he hasn't been on defending that poor traveller who was killed by that scumbag OAP last week. ; o
