Beggars in the UK is it becoming more common? I've seen it in other countries but Its something I thought I would never see in the UK. I'm seeing more and more beggars, originally it was one or two foreign beggars in larger city's but now I've also been seeing more and white English speaking beggars both men and women. today I've seen about 5 on one road, in odd places, middle of the road, near tragic lights ext. It just gets me thinking Has something changed. Are people in need or is it a scam. Should I give money or not. Would I be helping or funding a criminal ? What are your thought.
