    Although i am actually half gypsy, but i wasn't allowed that lifestyle, they claimed for a child a lack of education wasn't good enough. I can kind of see that now but still doesn't mean i wont respect my family all the same. But their views are very old fashioned, although most...

    but I don't understand how some people think we have a nice accent? Not everyone has the same accent in Britain an according to where they're from, they can sound really rough. Can't stand, rough, uneducated accents. >_< sorry.
