Knackers

Por aqui hay una gente, algo matailla, a la que llaman "Knackers" (procunciado "nackers"). Tienen un cierto parecido con los "chandaleros" que te ves en Las Palmas, pero mas cutrillos y borrachos (claro, son Irlandeses :P).
Pero en realidad ese termino se corresponde con otra gente que vendrian a ser como los gitanos en Espana. Mas o menos. Pero mejor dejo que mi companero de curro (Dave) se los explique, que para algo el es Irlandes:

"Knacker - (pronounced nacker) They live in caravans on the side of the road
or in random green areas through the city. Travellers used to be respected
people, like travelling salespeople in horse drawn carts, they used to
travel from town to town repairing items. Pots and things. They died out and
their ancestors (knackers) just live off the scratcher (or dole - government
allowance for unemployed), don't pay car tax/insurance and live on the sides
of roads or anywhere they can fit a caravan. They have a 6th sense for
detecting skips (Large bins that you hire when building/clearing out a
house) and take all types of junk out of them.
In England they're known as pikeys.
They're also known for their love of singing, horses and boxing.
Hope that explains it!!
Then there's the other sort of knacker. Aka 'scumbag'. They live in houses,
the only clothes they possess are tracksuits and they have dirty moustaches
at the age of 7. Whole different breed!"

A algun otro esto le recuerda a al personaje de Brad Pitt en "Snatch, cerdos y diamantes"? ;)
Pues si, despues de preguntarselo, me lo confirmo, aunque era la version Inglesa, "Pikey"
Bueno, creo que mas o menos se entiende la expliccacion, pero si alguien quiere la traduzco en un comentario, apra que no se haga tan larga la historia.
