Beg­gar’s be­lief out­side sta­tion

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

HOW is beg­ging so per­sis­tent, when it is il­le­gal?

Out­side Rayn­ers Lane Sta­tion to­day was a beg­ging busker.

His gui­tar play­ing was so bad, a dog could have done bet­ter us­ing his tail. I com­plained to the sta­tion staff, who said they can­not move him as he is out­side.

Walk­ing round the cor­ner there was a fit, able-bod­ied man dressed in the best at­tire, smok­ing, who said to me ‘give me £1, I have noth­ing’, tak­ing a puff on his cig­a­rette.

I en­light­ened him ‘you are do­ing bet­ter than I am’. Two min­utes later, he had van­ished.

There should be warn­ings on hoard­ings that it is il­le­gal and the con­se­quences are se­vere.
