If I wanted to drive through the town with two mates hanging off my car like the two in the photos do you think the Police would provide an escort - or prosecute me.


I don'e a flying ***** how much he was respected in his community, even he was a capo de capo or the equivalent - that does not give his mob the right to seriously inconvenience or ignore the laws of the wider community.

I agree Nick Tessla......there are hundreds of well respected people who have funerals every day all over this land, but they dont have roads closed for them......and who has paid the cost of policing this...?

If you put - traveller funeral - into Google News you will see that Warrington wasn't the only town let down by their local authority and police force - those bodies are not just guilty of neglecting their duties to the community but in aiding and abetting the disruption caused to the people who will end up footing the bill through their taxes.

We buried my fiance's dad in September and it was during the day but we never had roads closed or had a police escort, it was thanks to decent people in Warrington we got from the church up to Fox Covert cemetery. This is a complete joke especially when you look at the cars they have, considering they don't pay taxes how on earth can they afford these kind of cars !!!

Quite rightly said Nick,
I thought the same but didnt want the dogooders calling me racist,

My doctor told me you wont live any longer if you dont have a good moan, If you got something to say then say it.

So Mr...S , Do one.

We passed them in Burtonwood but it was a different vehicle they were standing either side of, think it was a van/truck. Funny how the authorities can turn a blind eye. Thought we'd avoided the convoy but they must have been running late. Counted 8 stretched Hummas though
