I don’t know the country; I don’t know anyone here. I came to spend some time with my son but it didn’t work out. I was on the streets after a short while,” Vernon said. “When I first came here I had a few bob in my pocket, looking the part, if I say so myself.... But, as I have faded, it has become harder. Nobody wants to know you when you’re down and out. If you’re not doing well they treat you with scorn.
