So is this what our country has become?

A 14 year old begging on the street and no-one bats an eyelid apart from criticising Red Ed because of the amount he gave her. Am I leading a sheltered life and this has always been common place or are we being dragged backwards? Should she not be in the care of child services?

    She live's with her aunt.
    And if you look carefully he actually had some money out of that cup.
    Seriously though, I hate all the petty politics.

    So her aunt sends her out begging in the morning? Fair enough.

    Couldn't care less to be honest. More than likely a Roma gypsy and quite frankly I view them as scum of the absolute earth.

    This is actually quite common. When I was at uni in Manchester there used to be beggars on Oxford Road, mainly women with young children. Me and my mates used to spare what we could since they were clearly struggling and didn't look like they're trying to fund a certain habit. The cops used to move them along pretty sharpish though.

    Isn't this saying to others it's ok to beg should be discouraged. This is only a photo opportunity for a top a top politician that should know better. Btw is it illegal to beg

    a family of romanian parasites has come to the UK solely to claim benefits and beg...
     

    [[<font]Mrs Stoica, a Big Issue seller, has lived in the UK for seven years and rents the property privately for £720 a month. She receives £550 in benefits a week but no housing benefit.

     
    £2k a month in benefits, are you kidding me?

    I thought the same. OK, it's a DM article but £550 take home a week for doing naff all? No wonder we've got no money. Just think how many people have to pay taxes to pay just for that one person.

    Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain.

    Thing is we can't pay for it. We are borrowing it and sooner rather than later it's going to stop and everyone will suffer.

    A recent study by UCL recently concluded that between 2000 to 2011 the UK made over £20 billion in profits from EU migrants. I think it's unfair to blame all our problems on an those willing to abuse the welfare system.

    The study was conducted by CReAM which is an independent research center without partisan bias (unlike your link), and not funded in any way by the EU as you claim.
