Walking across the east side of Westminster Bridge has become a nightmare !
Not because of the tourists ,who we all want to support our economy , but that every 10 yards " 3 card month" is set up.
This within yards of our seat of government . Why are the police not swooping on this before more innocent tourists return home with sad stories of being ripped off while on holiday here .
Not a good image in this Olympic year

Can I assume that you meant 3 card monte?

Or is a 3 card month one where 3 people of your acquaintance have a birthday?

Who is being ripped off? It's a card trick. Sleight of hand. Illusion. Call it what you like. Anyone should know there's very little likelihood of them 'beating' the trick but they just fancy 'having a go'.

It's street entertainment. I don't see anything wrong with it. OK, if they are every 10 yards maybe there's a bit of overkill but what's the harm?
