In a nutshell: Pikeys, also called travellers, tinkers but most commonly knackers (someone who smells/didn't wash or doing something disgusting is usually refered to a "a knacker") are descended from displaced Irish people removed from their homes en masse at an unknown period in the past.
I think he might mean the Isle of Man. Does your dad hate on the Manx?
