As this is a post which has no relevant forum, it's here, so bollocks. Just got back from a night in Peterborough, any one knowing the place will know market car park, multi story job next to the out door market oddly enough. I was walking down there tonight with a mate and the usual happened, any money for a cuppa mate. Fourth one down that said this I looked at and instantly recognised the fucker, we went through trade together. I told him to gather his crap up, come with us for a brew and grub. Walking into the cafe, he was told to leave, purely because the poor fucker was to be fair, in shit state and shit street. He has GSM NI also kosovo, I think he may have another as he went TA after regs and went on tour. I had two hundred and thirty left to draw on my card, I gave it to him and mate drove him to a B&B in the hope that he showered and got a good nights kip. Having explained all this to the landlady prior, we came down to be asked, 'why help helpless people like that', my mate and I were and still fucking outraged. I don't care that I will never get that money back, it does, however, upset me that so many bigoted senile pricks can assume that because a 'youngish' person is on the streets that they are helpless. I did offer him my spare room but the pillock 'didn't want charity'. More has got to be done to help people like him. A decent guy, helpful and appreciative, but also, too fucking proud to ask. I told him to go to the BL, failing that get over to me. Stubborn fucker won't though! Was only a rant, not a question. Fucking pisses me off though.
