The " POOR" Street People, FLY IN from Europe !!!..

Gangs fly in and out of Northern Ireland on ‘street begging shifts’ - judge issues warning as woman jailed

Applying for bail, defence solicitor George Copeland said the defendant had no passport but had a visa visiting card which entitled her to travel from Romania to any EU country.
"She instructs that she flew in from Bucharest to Dublin six weeks ago and that she has been living on the streets of Dublin, Belfast and Derry since then.
"She was arrested as she walked through the check-out area while she was speaking on her mobile phone to her children in Romania and she forgot to pay for the vodka", he said.

Mr McElholm said the defendant had similar convictions dating back to last December, yet said she only arrived here six weeks ago

Why so shocked ? If muppets keep giving money to em of course they're gonna come and make occasional flights back home. They'll be earning a lot more on the street than most of us do.

Oh shock, horror. Apparently I'm not meant to tell the truth.

As I said on a previous thread , time for the UK to start following the example of Italy and Germany.

Agree Ali 100%.

In my own town I have seen these people sitting in the streets outside shops -sometimes
holding a small baby-or a little toddler sat beside them-all day-horrendous.

Then immaculate 4 x 4`s picking them up in one of the Carparks at 5.30 pm.
Its always women sitting there all day-but its men picking them up.

I don`t know whether these women are `slaves`or if they are the fly in ones-but whichever
it is-this has to be stopped.

These men simply take the UK people for a `ride`.
Its hard not to give the women-sitting on a cold pavement from 9 am until 5.30 pm.

I suppose I can afford the £1 -but there again-many of our own would need that £1 but
they are not on the streets of my town.

There used to be always a couple of theses Eastern European women hanging around the ATM at Danske Bank beside the Knock Lights selling a magazine called Belfast Issue , the supposed idea being you gave a donation , say £1 and you got a copy of the mag . One day as I was going to the bank, I must have taken an attack of the vapours or something , but I went to give this woman a £2 coin in exchange for the magazine , she went to grab the coin but refused to give me a mag , turns out she only had one mag which was for show , needless to say the £2 went back into my pocket and thankfully I’ve never had the vapours since.

I do think they are really geared to thinking we are an easy target.
In a way that`s very sad as it is making us very suspicious now of who is collecting for what.

A normal person`s reaction is to give money when faced with people either collecting or begging.
How terribly sad if now we have to face up to the fact they are far from legitimate and have to
stop giving-and that means genuine cases are penalised.

Same thing happened to me in Bangor Main Street a while back.  I gave her the money and a tug of war followed - she wouldn't let go.  I took the cowards route and let her keep the money and the magazine rather than argue.

I was discussing this topic with friends.  I was told that in order to claim some tax credits you must have a job and the magazine 'sellers' can register as self-employed and therefore claim the appropriate benefits.  It was just pub talk - so I'm not sure if this is 100 per cent - maybe somebody out there knows.  Belle who used to post on here would have known the answer as she worked in a DHS department.

Yes, they seem to target Main Street, Bangor. A few years ago it was the wee man outside Easons, on the accordion  who could only play one tune. People used to give him money to clear off.  :D

I used to give him money - he murdered some good songs but he gave Main Street a good vibe.  I haven't seen him lately - hope you haven't pushed off the end of the pier  :D .

A good vibe  :o  are you serious. I know a few who would have pushed him off the end of the Pier, but they were in their 80's.  :D
