According to Zerohedge / the Guardian, this trend is reaching a critical mass in parts of Asia. Both articles make a good read, and as usual, the comments sections can be OTT. Personally, I’ve seen this in Hong Kong and it was not a big deal. You can either contribute or pass the “begpackers” while they hold their signs, sitting on the street (In my case, the “BP” was standing on a fence!). Equally, there would be plenty of options for the said governments, if they wished to solve this (if need be). Any views?
