Was in lewes today and was shocked to see a man laying on pavement outside Holland and Barrett with his lager and fags. His guts where hanging out of his clothes, a nasty sight. 2 hours later he was down the Cliffe high street laying outside the betting shop, again with fags and tinnies. What a lazy individual which we are paying for.

Rosiecheeks - guts hanging out is a bit morbid for anyone who has seen guts hanging out. You should be a bit more considerate when trying to describe something.
Can't be any worse then the retired generation that have all there houses and benefits protected despite being the generation responsible for the 1 Trillion pound deficit!
Perhaps, Rosiecheeks; you should be less judgmental.
I get sick every time I see a retired person putting their dog in the car to take it for a walk. They have run this country into serious debt, retired, and think they have helped the country.
What about the trillion pound debt?
Should come out of the pensions - rather than taxing the poor.

Angry: please don't generalise. Many of us retired people have worked hard, lived within our means and never ran up debts. I think it is the generation below us who lived off their plastic cards. Nevertheless, you had better line us up and shoot us if that's how you feel.

@dilly, the guy with the radio doesn't deserve any sympathy, he has a flat in the town, which us tax payers provide for him also we are paying for the drink he consumes and the fags he smokes.

Lewes30 & others like him.. Maybe the Mans Grandparents and those relatives that came before him paid for his 'fags' etc in their taxes? Also I expect they paid them in order that you can live in a fairer society?
I don't know the man in question but I have seen him and I don't agree with him lying about the Town. But if there's one thing worst than a Man down with life its blinkered & smug individuals like yourself!

Angry: As Despair says, you have the wrong generation! And it seems the wrong culprit. The vast majority of our debt was caused by the banks taking advantage of Margaret Thatchers liberalisation of the financial markets. This is what so screwed up our economy, with the end result that you and I had to bail them out.
As for the original poster. Both her illiteracy and her sentiment mark her out as an unintelligent and bigoted idiot.'Waisted' (sic): there but for the grace of god go her, and her family.

Rosiecheeks has already 'fessed up. She's guilty of pissed posting and that's forgivable I would argue. The beggers that we're now seeing aren't people that have made lifestyle choices. They're a product of government policy.

You read some nonsense on here but Mark to blame the government for this bone idle wasters lifestyle choice is pathetic. This country affords anyone who wants to work the chance to do so through free education & job support through numerous schemes. Some people however decide they can't be bothered & would rather spend the day lying in our high street drinking instead.
The only mistake of government policy is handing benefit to those making these lifestyle choices in the first place.

Sussex Jim, anyone earning over £153 a week (not a king's ransom, by any stretch of the imagination) will be paying 12% NI. So while it may not be income tax, it is without a doubt a tax and quite a hefty one at that. No-one ever mentions that.

Liberal nonsense... You must surely drive a black cab so you'll have noticed the explosion in the number of people sleeping rough in central London during the mid 80s. What would that have been caused by if it wasn't government policy? The Bedroom Tax and the cap on housing benefit are just part of a long chain of pieces of legislation that have contributed. I can remember being horrified the first time I noticed a begger in Cliffe High St and now I see 4 or 5 of them each time I walk up that street. I work in mental health and I deal with these people on a daily basis. It's often partly about low self-esteem and/or depression - conditions that aren't treatable with a shift kick.

Still in your world it's OK to label people bigots and unintelligent by virtue of a spelling mistake and an opinion that doesn't suit yours.
It's your attitude (superior and way up your own backside) that pollutes this country.

Rosiecheeks. I agree that no one should be living a life like that. Unlike you however, I understand that alcohol dependency is a medical disease, and what you describe is someone who is unwell. I don't kick and maul people who are ill for the same reason I do not criticise people in wheelchairs, or with cancer if they are not coping ? I do ask myself why you are wondering around making value judgements about people in this seemingly sad state, without knowing any of the facts. Would you be less critical if , for example, you found out that this person had suffered a 'breakdown' having been the victim of an appalling crime, or had experienced a tragic death of a close family member, or had been in the army and witnessed shocking things far worse than a drunk in a charming historic high st.....?
