Are We Sure ‘Snatch’ Wasn’t A Documentary?

Francis O’Donoghue, 27, blasted European junior champion Martin Ward – who launched his career at Dagenham Boxing Club – in the chest during a heated confrontation on a travellers’ site in Brentwood in August. He also shot Mr Ward’s brother John in the thigh while breaking up a scrap between his wife and the Wards’ sister Roseanne. After wounding the brothers, dad-of-three O’Donoghue turned the gun on their relatives, shouting: “I will do you all in.”
And, if on reading that you are hearing duelling banjos, well, the best is yet to come…
Judge Andrew Lees heard the shooting had followed a spat between O’Donoghue’s wife Theresa, 25, and a 15-year-old girl from the Ward family. Prosecutor Tony Prosser said: “Theresa O’Donoghue formed the opinion the 15-year-old girl had been disrespectful towards her and [Francis O’Donoghue], in tradition of the travelling community, thought there should be a fight between two grown women to settle the dispute. “As the girl was only 15 it was thought another member of the Ward family, Roseanne, should take her place and fight Theresa.”
Hmmm. Not exactly Marquis of Queensbury rules, is it?
O’Donoghue told his wife to “bite and eat” Roseanne Ward before he in turn was confronted by her brothers. He left and returned with a pistol before shooting them. The glazier fled the travellers’ site, resulting in a manhunt by Essex Police, and was finally tracked down in East Barnet on October 12.
He got 16 years. I wonder how many he’ll actually serve?

Could David Attenborough do the voiceover for the documentary, please? (To stress how enriching this quaint endangered minority is.)

Everybody knows that no matter what happens next, you must say or do nothing.

Probably seven or eight, though if the other families plot vengeance he may want to stay in a bit. Just another tinker going off, no wonder the micks send them over here!

These fuckers really should be exterminated like the vermin they are.

Surely, imprisoning a 'traveller' adds unfair emotional stress and so qualifies said 'victim' for either a reduced sentence, and/or monetary compensation?

@ Redhill

Nobody here has claimed they are 100% Pure English - And why do you just pick on the English ? why not the Scots, Welsh and Irish, or even French ? Are you a closet Racist ?

Nobody has claimed to be superior to anyone, let a lone, gypsies. And I think you will find that most Roma gypsies would not take kindly to you comparing some of these people to them.

And as for Chavs, well, I think you will find they get as much stick here as the Travelers / Pikies do.
