Political correctness gone mad

My friend Doug had his Ford Transit Van stolen from out the front of his house yesterday. His mate Paul saw it happen and rushed over and hammered on his door. They both took chase in Pauls car and followed the thieves to the Paston Gypsy caravan park on the outskirts of Peterborough. From the road they could see Dougs Transit. So obviously they phoned the police.
"Hello is that the Police?"
"Yes how can we help you?"
"My Transit van has been stolen."
"Oh yes where was it when it was stolen?"
"No that's not important, we know who stole it and where it is now we just need help to get it back."
"So if you know where it is why don't you just go and get it?"
"It's on the gypsy caravan site."
"Ah."
"Well can you send someone round to get it back, they're trying to take the engine out right now. I can see them doing it."
"Well we're really busy right now. I'll get a car over to you as soon as possible, where are you?"
"We're in Crabtree over looking the caravan site, you'd better be quick they've got a hoist over the engine compartment."
"We'll be with you as soon as possible. Thankyou for calling Cambridgeshire constabulary."
So they stood and watched not daring to go into the caravan site. They waited..... and waited...and waited. No sign of a police car. So they phoned again.
"Hello I'm the guy who's Transit van has been stolen, they've almost got the engine out. How long til we get assistance?"
"A car is on the way sir."
So they waited and waited some more. the gypsies were really busy. The engine was taken out and all Doug and Paul could do was watch from the road. No one goes onto the Gypsy site.
They called again.
"Hello they've got the engine out now how long before your men arrive?"
"They're on the way."
"You said that twenty minutes ago."
"It's a very busy night sir."
"But they're taking the engine out of my Transit van.................. oh forget it they've torched it. My van is in flames. "
"Are you saying you don't need assistance?"

The police tell us categorically that there is no such thing as a no go zone. But will they turn up and enter the gypsy caravan site? Not in my lifetime they wont. It's like there is the law in normal areas, but in certain areas there is no law. They are so frightened of being accused of victimising the gypsies. We are so PC nowadays. That even if we see wrong being done we can't do anything about it because we are afraid of victimising a minority group.

And that made me think that perhaps team Ferrari should hire a team of Gypsies to be their pit team. They could have Michael Schumachers engine out in ten seconds and another in. The only trouble is they'd have Michaels Engine out and a 1.8 litre diesel engine in instead and the pit team would be down the road before any one noticed. Michaels engine would be in a Ford Mondeo within hours and tearing up the M1 the fastest getaway car on the road.
