I am laughing Scrumpy...well done. Homeless problems hide other things..begging and dealing with it can be tricky and different methods for each instance..be polite..but refuse is my way.

in MY opinion this riff raff should not be allowed to clutter our towns .

I think there was a chap in 1930's Germany that had a solution to this "problem", are you advocating a similar solution ??

Not quite that far, but move them on if itís made plain they are not wanted they might get the message, as already stated you do not find this riff/faff  in certain areas,. There are jobs, let these ildlers get off their backsides and take one, but as long as we allow them to scrounge and litter our streets, living the life of filth and fool many people into filling their begging bowls we will be welcoming many more. Ex serviceman, got a dog, been thrown out, and many other wailing s to get the cash from your pockets or perhaps you enjoy the sight of this filth.

Lead from the top Ron..that is where examples should start..sex pests left unchallenged due to wealth & fame, lying about weapons of mass destruction, hiding asian sex gangs, treating certain members of the populace with kid gloves, lying politicians, removal of police powers, no go areas for police...cadging a few coins- is a drop in the ocean.

When my grandaughter was in her late teens early twenties she would come out of the night club on a Saturday night/Sunday morning and there was always the same homeless person huddled in a shop door way, she would then go into the all night cafe and buy him a hot drink and something to eat.


One night there was a group of youngsters surrounding the home less man laughing and taking the mickey, my grandaughter did no more than disperse these youngsters so the man could have some peace and carry on with his hot drink and food.


No matter what anyone on here says I am proud of my grandaughter for the compassion and helping hand she gave.


Unless a person knows why another person is homeless or begging, I don't believe anyone can judge them for that.
I abhor ignorance.

I can see Bri looking for plastic mashers..

Better still he could buy some oversized ones made of candy.. Then he could suck on his words and swallow them..
Or choke on them !

Some of the street homeless are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol.  Some have mental health issues or learning difficulties.  They rarely choose not to have a home, although there are always a few exceptions.

'Getting a job' may be the ultimate goal, but first they need to be healthy, mentally and physically, and have somewhere to live.  The old psychiatric hospitals may not always have been perfect, but they provided a level of care for some people who would otherwise have been on the street.   We also had sheltered workshops for those with disabilities, who now have to compete with more able people for even the most basic jobs.

Still, the average age of death of rough sleepers is somewhere in their forties, so they aren't going to be a burden for long. 

Thank goodness for people like Bee's granddaughter and all the unspoken volunteers who give up their time to help.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
