The Government have promised that every set of traffic lights and junction will have its own beggar by 2020 at the latest.
The bold boast has come from Minister for Traffic Lights, Peter Thape, who wants a dedicated homeless man, or woman, on every mini traffic island within 6 months.
Thape has assured doubters that this once London centric idea will be spread out to the provinces and rural areas with immediate effect.
‘This government will not accept the criticism that this policy only works in the South East,’ said Thape.
‘I’m proud to say that even the North East, and North West are enjoying a good range of traffic light beggars,’ he added.
