LETTERS: Traffic-cone busker made my day

Published: 27 January, 2017

• A FEW days ago I literally stumbled over a young person sitting entirely covered in a blanket (this on a very cold day).

He had improvised a traffic cone as a megaphone through which he sung with such defiant brio.

Had I been an employer I would have employed him there and then instead of the few coins I dropped on the blanket. In business what must be rewarded is such audacious ingenuity.

In these dull post-Christmas days this busker brought joy to at least one person.
