The really Big Issue is bullying beggars

Established in 1991 with the best of intentions to help the homeless to learn the skills and discipline of work, then progress into the workplace, it has too often become a lucrative cover for bullying beggars who milk the welfare system.
They camp outside supermarkets begging for our benevolence. And many of us do feel guilty as we pass them laden down with our bags full of food. So we hand over a few pounds, imagining these poor souls have no home to go to and are living rough.
Yes, many of us have long believed that those who sold the Big Issue were homeless. Not any more, thanks to Ms Vasile's triumph. In her pursuit of benefits, she has done the genuine homeless, as well as the Big Issue sellers who are struggling, a great disservice.
How many of us will think twice about handing over anything when we next walk by? How many of us now think the original concept of the Big Issue — to help the homeless — has become nothing but a charter for welfare spongers to help themselves?
A view echoed by quite a few cunts underneath:
I bought the Big Issue regularly when I thought it was for the long term unemployed, Now I don't.

I used to buy the Big Issue from British people but once I clocked on to what was happening and the regulars disappeared to be replaced by people who don't even bother to learn to speak our language, I don't. And having read that I will take even greater pleasure in walking past them. Perhaps she cannot get a job because she cannot speak the language.

The Big Issue is like everything else well intentioned left wing moonbats dream up. They did not think it through to its logical conclusion. The Political Correctness which infects the UK and the Western World has created a dependency culture which seeks only to be supported but to give nothing back to society whatsoever.

When I hear the noise of "Beeg Issue, Beeg Issue", its as grating as chalk on blackboard. Homeless are you kidding, this Government needs to get a grip and deal with the BIG ISSUE of British people struggling to make ends meet. Firuta Vasile certainly knows her Rights and the location of the nearest Pie Shop.!!
