Slumdog Flyover: With Lorries Thundering Past Only Feet Away, Squalid Camp Of The Homeless, Hopeless Migrants Whose Dream Of A New Life Went Sour

Very sad, but this is why you need a job or means of supporting yourself before you come here.

More common than you would think, but seldom so 'out in the open'. As a child I would play inside derelict buildings of which there were many, colleges, schools, hospitals, factories, houses etc. And you would often come across the sleeping blankets etc. often occupied.

People tend to group and form squats for their own safety though. And if they haven't yet done so and are sleeping rough, they should. Ideally they can access help from the council etc. but they can't always do this.

Plenty of this round Peterborough. Some roundabouts around the parkway have bushes on them that hide camps. The river banks also tend to collect their fair share. The Daily Mail often runs nasty stories about Peterborough, they even recycled a story about immigrants eating the swans in Peterborough. The Daily Mail journalists are too lazy to get their own stories so they lift them out of the Peterborough Evening Telegraph, owned by the same group. One wonders how desperate these people must have been to leave their homes and hitch across Europe to Poundland. They must now be disillusioned and desperate.

Just round the corner from the offices of the P.E.T. ...

I talked to an old guy salvaging brass fittings from cabinets thrown into a skip outside the town museum. He said, " we are living in a twenty first century consumption dystopia". The chap was absolutely right, after all, he was making ends meet taking the brass off hand crafted, probably Victorian, mahogany display cabinets that had been binned in a £2M refurbishment of the museum. The glass will make good cloches for my lettuces.

BTW I would dissuade anyone from sleeping under the Huntingdon Flyover in case it falls down on them. When it does, the A14 and the East Coast line will be closed for a very long time.

English cities are more and more bearing an alarming resemblance to the African cities I have visited.

What usually follows an increase in the number and size of urban squatter camps is a spiralling and uncontrollable wave of ever-increasingly violent crime.

Sometimes you find people sleeping under bridges because they prefer it to another night in a Travelodge

NB From the article photos I note many of the rough sleepers have better bedding than I've ever owned, is that not just bedding but M&S bedding?

I thought that yesterday when someone had thrown a mattress and divan out in our "recycling area." Shame it was a double, I'd rather have the extra space a single bed gives me for my "home gym." :lol:

Isn't that what is implied at the end of the article?

No mention of how much the flyover is worth though.

Are there any other areas like this in the UK, it can hardly be the only one.

I can remember reading about stories like this a few years ago, but out in rural lincolnshire:

I hope the Greek's that will be heading our way after their default will bring warm winter clothing for next winter...

Surely if they really default they will end up like Iceland with a reasonable credit rating and a rising economy?

We don't see any Icelandic destitute under our flyovers.

Ahh c'mon - it's not like we didn't see this coming - all thanks to Tony Bliar and NuLabia who have done the most to turn this country into a 3rd world shithole in the pursuit of profit....
