The people of Devon should be ashamed that this idea originated in their county.

Why should anybody be allowed to decide they can unilaterally judge another person? We have laws to decide what people can and cannot, legally, do.

Anybody who presumes to put themselves above those laws should be made to answer to them.

Ah, but the law at issue here relates to libel – and you need money to bring a libel case to court.

Those who are planning and running this “nasty” campaign know this.

So we are looking at the rich attacking the poor, thinking they can do so without fear of retribution.

Let’s put a stop to it.

A “nasty” campaign to publicly out so-called “fake beggars” won’t be welcome in Liverpool, according to a city homeless campaigner.

A group of people in Torquay, Devon, have launched a controversial campaign which involves photographing and challenging people begging on the streets in a bid to prove they are genuinely homeless.

If the group believes someone is a fake beggar, they add their image to posters put up around the town warning people not to hand over cash.

Now the man behind the Devon campaign says he has hundreds of people ready to roll it out in towns and cities across the country.

But he has been warned by a local campaigner that no such scheme will be welcome in Liverpool – where issues around “professional beggars” have been regularly raised.

Homelessness campaigner Michelle Langan, who runs rough sleeper group The Paper Cup Project, was unequivocal in her condemnation of the campaign.
