I'm sure I read somewhere that the term 'pikey' originates from 'turnpike sailors' (turnpikes being toll roads in the ?19th century), reflecting the itinerant nature of the lifestyle. May be wrong though.
This is actually quite an important issue as if the concourses are this easy to access, then what about the other club offices etc that are at the stadium, with presumably more valuable/sensitive items at risk...
Ignoring the fence - which will need its own solution - surely every other potential entry route should have a decent level of barrier in place to make it not possible to enter with such ease??
I was going to dismiss the 'terror' element, as it's not like we get any big teams like Manchester City playing here is it??
today's Oxford Mail ( printed version) a few pages in (I read today's OM newspaper before heading off working ) Strangely had a piece at the top of the page about the various 'issues' .... including buses refusing to pick up passengers at an Oxford park n ride... caused by encampments of 'travellers' currently in various Oxford Park n Ride car parks. Yet NO mention of those in the breeze block car park whatsoever????
Directly below the 'pikey' piece, the main story on the same page is about Farrs catering being broken into. .... Strangely no mention of the breeze block ' travelers' encampment, wondering if they've ( been) moved on? .... Do Oxford Mail/ Newsquest employ or commission Investigative Journalists these days?.... probably not as the 'coincidental' arrival of travellers at the breeze block car park and Farrs outlets , inside the breeze block (apparently Firoka / Stadco employ security - at a guess from Scum owner Power's security firm???, whoever they are, the security firm, they seem 'a bit rubbish' with 3 break-ins in 7 days at the same location, ALL on their watch appears to border on incompetence to me. Law of the land says innocent until proven guilty, however, wherever travelers/ pikeys pitch up, inevitably burglaries, thefts, criminal damage, public order incidents and large accumulation of mess n rubbish in the vicinity always rises considerably.
Yet in the Oxford Mail there's no 'link' made between the two stories that are on the same page! Strange that is, IMO
