Have you seen certain Eastern Europeans lately ? - they could certainly pass for Asians. Then again, since their background is from India thousands of years ago and who now come from the likes of Slovakia etc... it's no surprise.

Roma gypsies and all that..

How awful! Some people have no shame!!!
In my opinion, I believe it's the eastern Europeans who pick pocket and steal. Just last weekend, my mum had her purse stolen which had a £100, cards and her brand new iPhone. They cut through a bag she was holding!!! Vile scum.. it's starting to happen a lot here now

Roma gypsies from Slovakia are eastern European. Not sure why your tiny brain doesn't seem to register that fact.

And why do I think they're Europeans and not Asians ?

What a dolt you are.

Only because they have European passport doesn't mean they are Europeans. They are gypsies. Asians have British passports too. Does that make them British?. Don't think so
