A PERSONAL VIEW ON ONE OF SOCIETY’S LEECHES ?? Politicians get an extra allowances for Misleading the public and for laying!Please explain what’s the difference.. the homeless lay on the road the Politicians lay in comfortable armchairs with a belly full of food and expensive booze for what, “by the way” you and I are paying for!!
How heartless can you get Dave ! The poor man !Great shot, brilliant contravercial views ! I love it !
Controversial – and you know why ;-)
Well seen ! I saw a man do this in town one day, he was asking for “any spare pounds” I was waiting in a car for my Son and watched 8 people stop and give him a £ at a time, then his friend arrived they got up and we heard them say “Off to the pub then”
At least it was only the pub!
This may sound terribly callous, but I always feel so sorry for the dog that has been used for emotional blackmail.
When I worked in Gibraltar there was a young man who begged at the frontier between Spain and Gib. He had previously had an accident and still had stainless steel plates and screws showing outside his leg. He should have had them removed about a year before, but it earned him money, so he left them in and probably would never walk properly again because of it. I had very little sympathy! He was a druggy.
Oh this has sparked some comments although I am glad to see I am not alone. I know exactly what you mean Fran.
Wow! This is such a beautiful & emotive piece Dave! It impacted me as soon as I saw it. I love it.
Thanks very much Jordan :-)
