You should see Madrid, or Venice where there are teams of Roma on every corner with the boss going round collecting the takings.

I saw them buggers in 2000 in Madrid. We had just got off the airport bus at Plaza Colon. They worked in packs and asking for any currency at all.

Seems they have been hated throughout history and by everybody.

They do all the BIG ISSUE selling now in UK and claiming they are self employed to claim benefits. :evil:
