    Yeah, think that was me actually...what you say here is a bit of a generalisation Zinc, what i remember saying in a previous thread about homeless people was that many (not all) beggars are not necessarily homeless and find it easier and actually quite prosperous to sit next to cash machines and outside supermarkets asking for free money.
    I went on to talk about the experiment done by Ed stafford in which he lived on the streets of Manchester for a week and found that beggars were going back to there homes after there "shift"...Can't stress enough the word "many" and certainly not "all" homeless people do this. I was talking to door security at the Bridgewater hall in Manchester town centre not so long ago, he pointed out three beggars to me who actually live together in a swanky apartment on the outskirts of town. These people do a lot of harm to genuine cases of homelessness as people are now less likely to offer help where it's genuinely needed.

    Such a lovely sentiment in the last sentence , yet shortly after that you posted this ..

    I thought I’d typed Stafford but must have fumbled and it was ‘corrected’
