"But They Ain't... Normal!"

Oxford’s unique houseboat community has a reputation for nonConformism, self-sufficient living and upholding artistic decoration. They inspired the author Philip Pullman’s Gyptians, the riverboat culture in the His Dark Materials trilogy (one of my favourite novels!) I’ve recently discovered that the Oxford boat people have been harassed and bullied by the council. Why? They’re not doing anything wrong… are they?
