But, I suspect that you may also feel that those like me who want the law against begging to be enforced, especially around our national symbols, are uncharitable. Anyway this is a topic on which you've been Delphic but derogatory more than once, so it would be good to know clearly what you're saying. As the Lord Gnome of SE1, your words carry weight.If you don't like it - clear off! The hostels where these guys live have been here a lot longer than you probably have. There may be a few "down and outs" around (there certainly have been during my 7 and a half years here) but they add more character to the area than boring prats like you.
