Sorry for sounding naive, but is it illegal? and can you be prosecuted for giving money to a beggar?
a guy asked me for some money at Liverpool street station last night and i pulled out my wallet to give him some. As i did this, some middle-aged man appeared from nowhere flashing police ID, saying stuff like 'Beggings illegal, and i can prosecute both of you!' I managed to get away unscathed, but it left a nasty taste in the mouth.
It was tempting, but im coward.
should curl up and fucking die. Honest to God, I couldn't give a Pokemon if the guy were a smack feller or hungry -an off-duty jobber's a cunt and I hope he's cut in half by a train in front of his children.
in england, as there isn't much of it, not like there is here in canada. there's like 5 at each corner here. i've convinced the squeegee kids by my apartment that i'm poor too though, so they're just nice and don't beg for money.
they're poor why would they give me money?
no they know i have more than them because i walk home with groceries and booze :)
they just know i dont' have EXTRA.
buy dogfood and give it to the homeless people with dogs. i have before. also, i know in vancouver there's a petfood-foodbank you can go to so that you can feed your pets if you dont' have the money to.
in the country, hitchhiking, or living in makeshift shelters!!!
mainly down to taxes, the government may loose money so they put a law on it... at least thats what I believe
the government want 20p in every pound you give to a beggar?!
to talk up his contribution to the Homeless. I would be stunned if there wasn't a girl on here who he 'knows'...I'm a cynic and a prick, but often right.
BUSH IS SUCKZ.
