Blind Item #10 - Kindness

Apparently at least once a week or so, this foreign born A- list dual threat actor who does have a franchise goes around London to various places homeless sleep outside and passes out 100 pound notes and prepaid phone cards for cellphones. There are several hundred he knows by name and many have his phone number in case of an emergency.

There's no such thing as a £100 note.

MDAnderson said...

Rating too low for Tom Hardy but I could see him doing this.

lonely bastard: "The homeless have mobiles now?" Welcome to my world! Yes, they ALL do in my neighborhood.

Homeless, crack addicts, hookers. Always bringing out their iPhones, tons of photos, lots of apps. They're not carrying around those old-time Obama Phones. Remember those? I am the one using that one!

I asked Tamika (yes, that's her real name) how she managed to own such an expensive phone and she said, "Oh this old thang? I found it on a bus." Ite!

I have one of those Chinese flip-phones. I don't take pictures, I have never texed. I get robocalls in Mandarin. I kid you not. Happy to have it.

Krab said...

Yes, yes, yes, HOW DARE THE HOMELESS HAVE PHONES. Also, how dare refugees have phones blah blah y blah.

Fact is, phones are not a luxury item any more and especially outside the US, cost way less than you'd think.

Now back to your ranting about how poor people should not have anything except a few rags and a spoon they whittled out of wood.

Smalls said...

For so many homeless, the phone is their LIFELINE and the only way family members can reach them. This sentiment is dangerously close to Reagan's "welfare queens".

LondonGirl said...

Tom Hardy...he also donates and spends tons of his free time at Battersea Dog and Cat home..Love him

Kimberly Davis said...

Once I find out who this is, I will love them forever.

Brayson87 said...

What kind of cell service plan do you think the homeless get? Prepaid I imagine, don't know if I see a monthly unlimited payment thing, more of a Tracfone type set up.

Also, do you think the homeless would sell their phones? Has to be cheaper than buying burner smartphones over the counter.

Lonely Bastard said...

@Krab.

Oooooh, get you!

The whole blind is bullshit. As was pointed out there is no such thing as £100 notes, not one that would be accepted anywhere in London as legal tender anyway. The "cellphone" card thing sounds like bullshit too. Any mobile can be topped up for a very little amount without a "cellphone card", which isn't that big a thing over here.

And yes, its heartbreaking to see the homeless and what many of them have to suffer.
But I was more concerning myself with one of the most obvious and badly assembled made up blinds on this site in , oh I don't know, maybe a couple of hours, than having a go at those less fortunate.

Some day I might talk about the 3 weeks I roughed it o the streets of a town just west of London back in 1985. Not great memories.

But never mind me, you just stay up their on your high horse, we wouldn't want you to fall off now, would we?

Stay Woke.

Yeah, brit here. We don't have £100 notes. Someone is spinning you a yarn enty. (Or, more likely enty is making this one up)

Boo Hearne said...

My comment about the phones was misunderstood. Or, I did not word it in such a way it was understood.

Of course income impaired men and women should have phones! That is why President Obama issued what, at that time were called, 'Obama Phones.' Many people in my neighborhood qualified for them and got them. They were thrilled to death to have them, believe me.

That's not what I was referring to. The drug addicts, homeless that I know have $1,200 Apple iPhones. They were all stolen from people like you on the street, on subways, or wherever you happened to be when they stuck the knife in your ribs to take it from you. Do you have any idea how many New Yorkers have been killed over these damn phones?

As I have worked with homeless all over the US and overseas, and continue today when I have the strength, I am not the person you should be yelling at.

Krab, sorry I gave the impression they shouldn't have phones. No way. It IS their lifeline. The homeless in my neighborhood have 9-1-1 on speed dial. They also have my number on speed dial and call me at any hour of the day/night. Sorry I didn't word it properly.

Brayson87 said...

I wonder how they continue getting service after the phones are reported stolen? And where do they charge their phones?

Ophelia said...

@brayson there are street chargers all over NYC. They have stations by most bus stops or subway stops!

ITT retards that don't know Scotland has a £100 note. Fucking morons.

+1 Tom Hardy, he was drug addicted and homeless at one point in his life. He's always seemed to remain humble. I can see this being him.

Dixie C said...

A Scot here, and yeah there is a £100 note here. It has Walter Scott on it.

mercyprosperity said...

MM ok. Its cool to hand out stuff.Very big of you. Now, spend a few nights sleeping rough. Right next to them. Talk to me after that. Been to Haiti mission work... it will definitely show u what pain means.

Dixie C said...

And just to add even though folk down south might be weird about a £100 note, it's as they say, "legal tender" in England as well.

Cindy said...

@Boo - Bush started that cell phone foe low income people and after his disastrous term more people sign up -- Obama only continued it

No Name said...

Obama invented phones boo? Or is “Obama” the code word for ghetto?

Torr said...

The U.K. doesn’t have £100 notes, so that’s unlikely.

drew holthaus said...

Harry potter for the win! :)

hamburgler1985 said...

Yes, most homeless people have cheap pay as you go mobiles (you can buy a mobile phone for £5 here in the U.K.) because they are essential for applying for jobs and benefits. They are still genuinely homeless.

Source: have volunteered with homeless charities here in London for years.

hamburgler1985 said...

They have pay as you go phones, they aren’t on phone plans. (Hence why the BI mentions phone cards). Here in the UK a pay as you go mobile costs less than a pizza.

hamburgler1985 said...

A phone costs £5, and many charities give out free phones. Not stolen. Why are you even commenting on a country you obviously don’t live in?

Cuddlebutt said...

@no name, Bush started the cell plan that gave a basic phone and limited minutes and data each month. It wasn't brought to attention until Obama. Both sides called it Obama phone. Obama was given credit for it where it wasn't due. His fans lauded him and on the flip side his detractors said it was a sign of waste and undue entitlement. But, again, both sides called it an Obama phone.

JillS said...

Tom Holland- stage and Spider-Man franchise?

Depeche Model said...

Lonely bastard you are my new hero. Very well said.

Only somebody as narcissistic as Obama, could call something Bush invented after himself.
That useless moron never invented anything. But he did succeed greatly in getting Trump elected. So I guess he did one good thing after all.

mercyprosperity said...

Stop calling people 'The Homeless". Would you want to be labeled by your current affliction? How about if we said, "Here comes the Alcoholic " or Here comes the diabetic!" ...right to your face? These are human beings. I have been homeless several times, due to domestic abuse . It does not define me. I have worked hard for two degrees and raised two kids that I love. Homeless does not define me. This blind is not nauseatinh; but the comments are. Just remember: But for grace of God, it could be you.

Ringo said...

Whomever it is, I'll love them forever and watch their movies even if they are crappy.

Btw- I usually give out my old phones to homeless people whenever I get a new phone. My family and some friends do the same. We just make sure they are unlocked.

plot said...

"Only somebody as narcissistic as Obama, could call something Bush invented after himself. "

Except Obama never called them Obama phones, not once, nor did he sell them as such to the public.

Your envy is showing.

@Krab@Lonely Bastard

+1!

The shelters here give out cheap phones for clients, with limited minutes and have deals with stores near by to sell more minutes.

plot said...

Wait...

Stolen IPhone question. If mine was stolen, how is my password disabled for further use? Also, I'm a tech idiot but even I know I can freeze everything on my Iphone from my computer, completely shut it down. So why aren't people doing this and/or is it possible to get around it?

Assuming there is a way around all the Iphone security measures, would the homeless really be the ones to implement this? I can't imagine it not taking some serious software and a computer with VPN to accomplish cracking a phone.

But I really know nothing about this shit.

Paul Saint John said...

So what do you suggest we call them? Bums?

Unknown said...

Not for nothing but the Bush administration started the phone program, how in the eff Obama got credit for that I'll never know...

https://abcnews.go.com/ABC_Univision/Politics/myth-obama-phone/story?id=17507339

plot said...

Obama received the credit because he openly promoted it as a good thing.

Bush tried to hide it because his Rabid Reich supporters would have kicked up a ruckus - no phones for the poor! Make them lick the streets clean! Welfare Queens!

Come on. I've seen it from you personally. You know the drill by now, Unknown.

Rinky said...

English person here. There is no such thing as an English £100 note. The last time they were produced by the Bank of England was in the 1940s. However, the Bank of Scotland does produce a £100 note.

So it does exist, but you'd only really ever get them IN Scotland from an ATM or a bank. You wouldn't be given them by an English ATM or bank, let alone in London. And many English shops etc won't take Bank of scotland notes, annoyingly, which is why I always try to swap them out for English ones when I leave Scotland after a weekend trip.

Most Brits have never seen one, that's for sure. I've never even handled a £50 note myself. They're considered suspicious in shops and most people have long used cards and before that, cheques topay for larger amounts.

The idea of some foreign celeb having a stash of Bank of Scotland notes is .. weird to put it mildly. Especially given homeless would have a very hard time using them in England.

Just saying. Little details like this makes your stories way less believable than they might already be.


Unknown said...

This is probably fake rumor trying to make him looks gd. There is no such thing as a 100 pounds note in UK. Fake.
