    This directed mainly at Australians. When you have big news events, they get covered here in the UK, on the TV news, radio and more so in the better newspapers. The perception here in the UK is that a similar thing happens over there in Australia and I was just wondering whether you're seeing the news about the eviction of the Gypsies from a site here in my own town at a place called Dale Farm? If you are - how is it being portrayed - are the local council being portrayed as the villains or are the Gypsies?

    Hadn't even heard gypsies were being evicted in the UK or this story at all to be honest. I imagine only major UK stories are brought up here and not ones like this.

    Sorted then. It's pretty major here, so was wondering if it was the kind of story that would go global - seemingly not.
