10 second poll: Do you give money to people who are begging?

I am at the Greenbelt festival this weekend and I am speaking in a debate on the following motion: ‘This house believes that giving money to people begging does more harm than good’.

I’ll let you guess whether I am speaking for or against the motion (for clues see this article) but to help could you complete this quick poll?

PLEASE BE HONEST (no one can trace your answer!)
