Vox Political commenter Tracie Wayling has written to say, “This has to be the sickest, most twisted attempt of blatant propaganda and outright 180 degree reversal of the truth that I have ever seen. What an example of trying to convince you that 2+2=5!”

She’s right, Kensington and Chelsea is wrong. Complaints to the Advertising Standards Authority? Or who?

A London borough has launched a controversial poster campaign that advises the public not to give money to those begging on the streets as doing so may “contribute to someone’s early death”.

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea advises the public in a poster which claims that those begging are “likely to spend the money on drugs and alcohol”.

But those who have seen pictures of the poster have voiced their disagreement, alongside homelessness charities, who say the decision to give money is a personal one and that those begging are nonetheless vulnerable.
