Bury is fast becoming the beggars paradise. On a typical night out, you can expect three need 20p for the bus, Half a dozen have you got a cig mate or can I finish yours pal, a guy sat beside the cash machine playing a recorder (Badly) waiting for a tip and even a story that goes along the lines of “You may like this, You may not but I am in real need of 50p”, when you say no, He even thanks you for listening.
Come on, They give normal beggers a bad name. As For the “Adult” drinking population, I was amazed the local pubs didn’t sell cow and gate formula on draught.
