The acceptable face of travellers

There was a piece in the Telegraph about how a class of Naples primary school kids have scandalised Italy by submitting homework which supported the burning of gypsies. It was on my mind as I trudged to the Quik-E-Mart this morning and was passed by two horse drawn caravans, full of scruffy urchins. Bidding everyone good morning, I was regaled by some wonderfully polite prep school accents. It’s obviously what the coping classes do now they’re priced out of Tuscany.
