That was interesting reading.

I suppose what happened was a culture clash. The Roma thought that they could behave the way they do everywhere else without realising, that is part of the local culture for the retailers to have anti-theft "insurance" and the insurers had to earn their money. So the poor little darlings of "progressive" liberal left were kicked out.

They weren't that badly treated compared to what has happened in the past.

Although, the boys that did that would be miffed(no doubt) to be called Irish! ha! ha! ha!

Thus Al-Beeb has a lot of support for its position among the UK population who fully agree with it. They want to be deceived.
