"Suffer the Tinkers to come unto..."

Interesting potential for a spanner in the works of the Papal visit to the Celtish Isles:
THE Pope's visit to Britain has been thrown into turmoil amid fears swarms of gipsies will turn up hoping to meet him.

Waves of travellers have already started descending on Birmingham ahead of the pontiff's four-day tour of the UK next month....

An emergency meeting with the Catholic Church was called over fears the whole city could be flooded with thousands more.

Police evicted the travellers who have come over from Co Donegal, Ireland.

But they just moved their camp yards across the road to the Shire Country Park yesterday.

The travellers told council officials they didn't have £25 pilgrim passes for the event on September 19.
