Some begged silently; others, avoiding eye contact, uttered a sometimes barely audible mantra to passers-by – “Can you spare any change please”. It is as if they were engaged in a very private performance, albeit in a public place. The interviews reported by Dean and Melrose in Chapter Six have built upon these preliminary observations. It must, nonetheless, be remembered that the ‘style’ of begging that is observable in Britain may be fairly distinctive. Anecdotal evidence suggests that begging in other continental European cities, for example, can be more vocal or flamboyant, or else – even when wholly silent or purposefully restrained – it tends to entail more conspicuous and theatrical modes of supplication than those we have observed in London.

Standards of public order and restrictions on street-level activity varied greatly between countries, and between cities within countries. In general, the state socialist regimes maintained very strict standards of public behaviour, which were reinforced by citizens’ cultures of civic conduct (allowances being made for those suffering from alcoholic excesses). As someone who has lived for extensive periods and travelled widely in Central Europe, I can testify to the remarkable survival of these cultures in most regions.
