Dude, I work in London - never noted for polite people!

Perhaps it's that I smile, and say "no thanks" politely, rather than just blanking them.  They're not used to it, and it confuses them

I've noticed that the Big Issue sellers in Nottingham are going beyond their remit. If you say "No thanks, not today" they then ask if you have any spare change. I don't think that they are supposed to do that.

Now that does sound like a good deal.

I sometimes buy The Big Issue, I've never had a seller push it or be rude to me. I look at the dog first, if they look after their dog, they're good folk to me.

It would be better to teach proper contraception to the third world, rather than propping up families with 10 kids

 

I think we should get our own house in order before we start preaching to anyone else

Isn't the preaching the job of the catholic church?

I'd rather someone rammed a pineapple up my arse than watch Red Nose Day on the Beeb. About as funny as having your haemorrhoids scraped.
