This has been implemented under the auspices of the EC Human Roights Act -
and members of the Irish community travelling on UK roads have been given
special training in the implantation of these roights, including specially

Training is given in such phrases as "**** off -Oi'm an ethnic Tinker, and
yer F'ing laws don't apploi ter me"
