    We need to put to bed the lie/myth that a homeless person needs money for a hostel. The don’t, plain and simple.

      Do you know that from personal experience or is this just a clean sweep with the stereotyping?

        Most nightly beds are around 4.50 per night. A bed through the freephone is usually free. If you get a 6 month STA bed you pay up to 50 per week and in most places you lose your bed for prolonged arrears.

          So despite the propaganda from shane a homeless person does need money for a hostel, thanks Scottser.

      Believe it or not it’s actually none of your business how a homeless person spends their money, just like it’s nobody’s business how you spend yours. Can you imagine how relentlessly boring, depressing, stressful and soul-destroying it is to be homeless?

        Well, normally when homeless people tap you for money, they mention needing money for a hostel.

        People would be better off donating money to the Peter McVerry Trust, rather than giving it to individual beggars.

    true. they beg for money for drink and drugs not food. the really hard up are language students, unlike the homeless they don’t receive a penny in welfare and work minimum wage jobs to pay greedy landlords for a bunk bed.

    Imagine how many more homeless people there would be if everyone decided not to buy anything in the shops?

    This post is a load of trite tosh; while it is sad that there are homeless people, feel free to enjoy yourselves if you like.
