I wondered if I should even be posting this one

As someone who sympathises more than some about such things I have wondered about this one. Still it may all be some sort of hoax for all I know. The man has called in to BBC 5 live claiming to make up to £200 a day from begging on the street. I suppose it is possible to make that sort of money in that way but not so very easy though I would have thought. Perhaps he makes more money because people sympathise more with him in this cold weather.

I am not sure about the amount but, if you have the right pitch, begging can be a very profitable way of living

I fail to see how begging is similar to daylight robbery and don't say you only do nights.
