For goodness sake can't these people get it into their thick skulls, they are not wanted in our community and their actions do nothing but disrupt the lives of ordinary citizens. They have no mandate and only command the support of a very small number of people who obviously lack much in the way of intellect. Get of our backs and let the rest of us get on with our lives!
