Travellers across the UK are sick and tired of the recent Channel 4 hit 'My Big Stupid Illiterate Bullying Non-Tax-Paying Fly-Tipping Fat Gypsy Wedding.'

Many are fearful the TV show is damaging to their culture.

Often known as 'Romany Gypsies' these admirable people used to be invited into our towns and cities by locals who were desperate to have their cars and homes broken in to, but not any longer.

One local gent who would normally have cheered at the sight of the travellers expensive cars towing their caravans over the horizon admitted: 'After watching the show I am aghast at their life style,' he said. 'I thought they were a studious bunch, committed to the environment and practising Christians, but now I'm not so sure.'

Another lady of the village said: 'I never minded the fact that my community tax paid for the clear up operation once the 'caravan of love' troop moved on but I think I may object after seeing how they really behave.'

The traveller community however are fighting back to save their reputation. A spokesperson for one group who goes by the name of Paddy (surprisingly enough) said: We're not all drunken, thiffes leaving a trail of refuse behind us as we move on. Some of us work hard to lay drives and sell heather door to door. We don't steal our expensive cars ya know, just the radios we put in them.'
