Try it, let us know how you get on....

Also, consider what it is like being a homeless person- maybe with an addiction of some sort- as stated above, who are we to judge their priority need?

they take the money out and pretend they have none!

so your mate was a piss- taker then? Ruining public attitude for the genuine folk? Nice mate.

@Rudebox.Have you ever begged in the streets?Ive know some who dont beg but work 24/7 to keep a roof over there heads eating hardly anything to survive[no booze as they can t aford it].Homeless don t need to be homeless or begging, There is help out there.but them who work hard dont get any help.I rest my case.

There are some very genuine cases of need, out there on the streets. Maybe not all are so genuine but many are.
The chap in question has an address and would appear to have mental health issues but we don't know this.
If you don't have a permanent address, you can't get a job or benefits. If you can't get a job or benefits, you have no roof.
We cannot suggest that one size fits all, as we have no idea how people end up in this situation.
So far as the charities go, they have little or no space left for the homeless. So what is the answer ?
In London they have the night crew, going around the streets to the cardboard box people, giving them soup. The same happens in many a European country. Does anyone on Wirral do that ? I don't know. Maybe there aren't enough beggars ..yet!

That's street art, not begging. Hardly the same thing.

Great help that aint it?"

"people are so stingey these days, cant even put their hands in their pockets for a measly quid???"

from original post..
"He often targets women with young children or the elderly and would follow them causing intimidation and distress."

Oh, so this is fine with Ste, maybe Ste would like this man to follow his missus.


stop stirring the spoon zipper and get back to your zimmer frame.
