The people I see in Lewes who beg and make out they are homeless actually live in council flats on Landport.

So homeless people are generally liars, crooks, wealthy, drug-dealing aggressive alcoholics who don't deserve any compassion and humanity? Jesus why are you narrow-minded drones so bitter?

They're not homeless they're beggars. They live round the corner from me in Landport, sit and watch when they have enough money for alcohol they'll buy their drinks and run home. They also cruise the streets on sunny days picking up fag ends to take home and reroll. Ship them to Hastings.

Yesterday, I overheard a well dressed man outside the station taking an order for "5 cans of Special for this evening" from a beggar. Sure enough, 10 mins later he returned with a carrier bag of cans.

If, as alleged, they are homeless, where do they sleep at night? Cos I have never seen them.

Regardless of if they are or not indeed homeless , the guy who begs outside boots needs to clear up his crap from the public toilets and not leave his junky needles on the floor - that's pusses be of more than anything

There was the couple who used to sit around town at opposite ends. The girl had specs on and used to sit reading while begging while her partner used to do the other end of town. I soon stopped giving when I saw the pair of them in Waitrose with a trolley stacked with food. I'd gone in there to see what was on the reduced shelf!! Oh the irony!!!

oh cat lover are you a labour supporter by chance? you probably do more than most for the homeless which is kind however it is a bit like that crazy lady who was in charge of kids company who paid for a homeless women to be in a flat for 8 years and then when the company inevitably went bust that women was in a worse position than before she met that wack job. the women had no support to find a job, social intervention to be able to live with others any kind of understanding on what it takes to run a household. left to fend for herself again. please continue your kind support but in a more realistic not idealist manner it is a much kinder thing to do in the long term.

Yes, it's true, all the homeless really live in mansions, all the unemployed have really got a job, all the sick are really well. And all tall people are really short and all fat people are really thin.

I can't believe people are so condescending and nasty to people who are less unfortunate than us. I always give money to homeless people, sometimes buy groceries for them so that they can have a balanced meal, I've even allowed them to use my shower on the odd occasion. If we were more compassionate to others the world would be a better place.

We've developed a new stategy for dealing with the local homeless population which we need your help with. We are calling all volunteers to congregate on cliffe bridge at 3pm this Tuesday (19th). This new strategy is based upon the principles of interpretive dance and shakra healing techniques. Please everyone bring food scraps, possibly from the compost if you are short, and candles. Thanks brothers and sisters.

Cat Lover YOU are not being kind giving a drug/alcohal addict money to buy more!! it is a cycle that needs to be interrupted all the time they get money from people like you, the more they value begging and feel less inclined to take/seek help. lets face it. it is far easier to beg than to clean up your act and accept help. some other posters on here are trolls just ignore them. People in general DO care. we need for those on the streets to change their habits, habits that you are fuelling. like I said before to become VISIBLE again. give them food by all means in fact by just talking will do far more good than a couple of quid
