Sometimes we care more for the welfare of our animals than our fellow humans. I am surprised though this homeless person chose to eat pet food as some pet foods cost more than regular food ,he would have been better off eating a cheaper product like a tin of beans..

Pet food Companies knowing we want only the best for our pets and want to see their Pet's food to be nutritious..... so actually use Human tasters on new products

I wonder with us being the 6th richest country, if the 5 above us have any issues with poverty & homelessness in their prosperous nations?

It was only a thought......

If the truth be known, it’s a problem in most countries, like food banks, they might come under various names but they are what they are.

Re: Poverty ?

It's a national disgrace for any country who has people going hungry through poverty. It's outrageous. However it's sad to say but many not all choose to be homeless and prefer money for drugs including alcohol. So many good people who give money or food are being totally exploited. Some unscrupulous beggars have stolen dogs to help play on people's kindness. What's even more outrageous are the ones that come into town (London) and work the streets begging and after a hard days begging get on the train having stripped off their jelabah to reveal their western clothes.... bundle the baby in the push chair and go back to their homes in the surrounding suburbs where you see the Mercedes or such like on the driveway.
Once my daughter gave a guy her unopened mac d and he told her .... to go forth and multiply. .. Another one stopped me for money as he was hungry and I said I've just used all my money on shopping.. would you like some food. Well I can't repeat what he said. All he wanted was money for his fix and I'd seen him many a time coming from London on the train to the suburbs to get his daily fix money. Makes me sick.

Re: Poverty ?

I assume there will be scammers out there but I can't think many others are there out of choice. If they are aggressive beggars the Police or Local Authority should sort them out.

One of our local beggars, reputably a former York City footballer , died recently of neglect and hypothermia. He was an OK bloke. There must have been a cause for someone like him to be on trhe streets. He would take a sandwich and a coffee if offerd.

Re: Poverty ?

There's a guy in our town centre, his possessions are all in a supermarket trolley, I've never seen him beg. The wife & I have "donated" but never with actual money. He used to be parked up outside Tesco Express (plumb spot) but the last few weeks hes moved about ten feet away. I was told he has been offered accommodation several times by the local authority & privately, all of which he has refused.
He doesn't do too bad from what I can see, God knows where he gets the dogs from but he always has a little pooch with him, all of different breeds.

I don't think though that he is your classic homeless persons, I mean lets be honest there are some very desperate people about......There by the Grace of........

Re: Poverty ?

THINGS THERE’S NO MONEY FOR:
Housing the homeless.

I disagree.
There are 48 charities in the UK who claim to work for the homeless. There's one in Wales which has £2m in the bank and pays its CEO £100k a year.
Like a lot of charities they have become self perpetuating gravy trains and have the nerve at the same time to lecture the government about parsimony.

The meaning of the word "charity" seemed to have a different meaning altogether when I was a kid. I didn't think people involved were on mega money, they probably were but transparency those days was nil.
