    Blue Mason, do you think people beg by choice?

    I agree. They do not deserve any loans from me.
    Well... no one can get a loan from Trump as his mortgage company spectacularly failed.

    There is this lady around my area who is ALWAYS, I mean ALWAYS begging for money. It is so annoying, I wish someone can just ban her from doing so because she spend the money on drugs or alcohol.

    What is the main thing that leads people towards addiction and criminal activity?
    Is it fine that so many people are already relying on food banks and soup kitchens?

    What about these beggars in uniform? Ie redcross, oxfam and shelter. They even come to our door, on average once a week 'begging' for a small monthly donation, by direct debit? Which only pays the manager's salary anyway. I'd much rather give to some big issue seller on the street, any day of the week!!

    They're an annoying bunch,but they do not pester me.
    But yeah it needs to be stopped
