Government is going to sort out homelessness by 2014

I have woken up to this story that the government is going tor rid us of homelessness by 2024 costing £100 Million.

Translated it means it is going to give the appearance on our streets that there is no longer a problem, even though spending £100 million today would hardly make a dent, never mind over 5 years. This has made me angry, it's yet again an illusionary exercise of being seeing to do something. I work for Crisis quite often, though the last time was over Christmas last year, it can take it out of you. Most of those people could find a bed most nights, but many choose not to take the offer up, for most there is the threat of constant violence that just is not worth it, the streets are safer. Even when they come into a mass gathering like Xmas they barely talk to each other and never look each other in the eyes for fear of attacks.

I seriously hate T May now, she  is one of the uncaring Tories she claimed to dislike. I would be turning to some kind of socialism now if it existed, sadly Corbyn does not tick the boxes for me, people who are claiming to be victims in the UK are not the real victims in my opinion in many cases.

It’s a simple formula, bang the rents up high enough that it forces all these scumbag homeless/renters to become homeowners. It simply ain’t viable at these current peppercorn rents and encourages these vermin to find alternatives to the homeowner dream. 

As is the answer to most “economic mysteries” just bang em up is once again the only solution

Another case of "throw money at a problem and it'll magically fix everything."

What I've heard of this appears to rely on the assumption that every homeless person will fully go along with whatever they come up with and that it's merely about there physically being somewhere available for them to sleep, coupled with a bit of a chat with a mental health expert. It's pathetically naive.

Treat the causes then the symptoms will not exist......money can if not careful be used to enrich all the people around the problem, the people talking about the problem, capitalising from the problem, dealing with the problem......however much is put into trying to eradicate the causes, it will never cease to exist it is a constant, so a fix sum to solve it within a time line will not solve it, but anything has got to be better that what is happening now..... basically nothing. 😉

Excellent line. And it sums up government intervention, charities, think tanks. Dont forget to pay your taxes.

And anyone who doesn't comply is making himself voluntarily homeless allowing the ONS to define the number of homeless to zero.

Problem solved, Tory style.

Funnily enough, after the Napoleonic war tens of thousand of sailors and soldiers returned to Britain with no place to live and no job. The solution at the time was simply to make it a crime to be homeless (Vagrancy Act 1824).

Tory govt. of course.

Yep, that's exactly my take.

If they can provide a hostel where 12 men are sleeping in a Dorm in bunks in a souless bleak frightening  setting they have done their job, the fact that this is no way for an individual to live their lives for months or even years is irrelevant. Yet another policy that just sticks a band aid on a life threatening open wound.

Impossible unless they forcibly round up and detain folks.  Plus they have no idea how many foreign beggars and street folk will choose to come here..their attempts at providing solutions to homelessness may attract more to come...Presumably it is not politically acceptable to think or talk in these terms and as such this denial of reason will result in a failure of the scheme.

Yawn!

What I can't understand is why they bother saying anything.....JUST GET ON WITH DOING IT....if that is what they really want to do, only makes them look like story tellers and a complete failure when what they say will happen does not happen......elephants never forget.;)
