A Fact about Begging in Ipswich

At last night’s Central Area Committee, Westgate Councillor for Labour,  Colin Kreidewolf made the following statement.

A lot of people begging on the streets are making a good deal of money and not really homeless.

Now I think that some people would like me to say how awful the statement is and how it shows an uncaring attitude to vulnerable people. The problem is, a lot of the people we see ham n eggin in Ipswich are making a good deal of money and are not homeless. Therefore Councillor Kreidewolf’s statement is correct.

As a matter of fact, a number of them are begging in Ipswich for some of the time and begging in Norwich some of the time. This kind of activity used to occur in the early 1990’s and recently we have seen it return.

Well done Councillor Kreidewolf  for exposing the scam.
