Re: Basel offers homeless free one-way ticket to European destinations...

It's like any other underhand activity, it's obviously lucrative enough or they wouldn't be doing it.

Until people stop giving them money they will stay.. I saw it every morning when i was at work in Geneva .. 6am at the station they'd all gather together for a coffee and a smoke then head out to their designated spot for the day of begging.

It's a proper business and it's everywhere.. and everywhere has policies that allow it to continue and people keep on giving them money either directly or via social care.
