Don't you just love these dirty Roma scumbags. We let them come to our country and then they repay us by thieving and robbing off our vulnerable and old folk. But apparently it's for the good of the country and we're told we should embrace their culture. What a mess this country has become.

Presumably because of her age she would only get a non custodial punishment if she is caught?

Dani78, what a thoroughly unpleasant human being you must be to post a comment like this. I too would like to see this individual taken off our streets, but your sentiment is offensive.

Just one of thousands I'm afraid, if it's not bolted down the Romanians will have it and pickpocketing is their forte. Thanks to our wonderful EU laws and complete capitulation to brussels we are forced to put up with this. Pathetic country we live in.

Ann Giles knows lots about lots of cultures. This is a roma we can all see that, Ann must be wearing her rose tinted glasses again. When she's caught the punishment for them stealing off their own is amputation of the thieving hand. So our punishment will be laughable.
