Many homeless people are homeless by choice

I think these scumbags you see on the streets, begging in Wigan are doing this because they have had their benefits stopped, because long term unemployed have got to sign on everyday, first thing in order to stop them staying in bed and they have to search for work online for I think it is 39 hours a week and they have to apply for a certain number of jobs every week and these scumbags don't do that, so that is why they have no money and they are begging on the streets ...

There's been a bit of aggro in recent months when buskers set up in proximity to beggars, I won't call them homeless because most of them aren't. One busker I spoke to had to move from Market Place after being threatened and found a spot in the galleries, not as much passing trade but at least it keeps the weather off.

This Bus Once Housed Sam Smith and David Guetta. Now It's a Home for Manchester's Homeless.
The luxury tour bus can offer 5,110 nights of sleep for the homeless in one year.

I speak to Kevin ( the ex forces homeless man on the canal) regular as i pass him, He does not want a home, he's happy in the woods no matter how cold it is, He gets colds/flu like anyone else, but likes it outdoors, he's happy for any help, a blanket, a cup of hot coffee, and people having a chat to him, I know everyone is different but not all homeless want a home, a drop of kindness goes a long way,
