Now I can’t say the word Pikey?

According to the Metro today, ‘Pikey’ is now a race hate word. What’s the bloody world coming to when I can’t call someone a Pikey twat, or a thieving Pikey.

A gardener is thought to have made legal history after being convicted of racially aggravated harassment for using the word ‘pikey’.

Lee Coleman repeatedly used the term, a derogatory reference to gypsies and Travellers, in a drunken outburst over a nightclub entry fee.

This is a sodding outrage. I really feel for the gardener who was obviously victimised for simply stating the truth about some Pikey.
