What I've said is actually nothing to do with the fight. I don't blame the fight on it being travellers, it could just have easily been a group of Asian lads or a group of white scallies from Dagenham when Mitchell was fighting.

But it is not unfair to say that if an Irish traveller is fighting there is a higher chance of trouble than if the two boxers were from run of the mill areas. And then it developed into an entire discussion about travelling as a way of life.

It doesn't matter to me whether 60% of the travellers are all good people and I have just been hugely unlucky with who I've met and come into contact with, the very way they live is akin to a benefit scrounger who hasn't worked for a decade but uses local services and lives off other people. I object to people being allowed to do that regardless of where they are from.
And in fact I don't even blame a lot of people for doing that, I don't like working and if I could I wouldn't, but the state shouldn't allow me that privelage and nor should it anyone else who is able bodied.
