One in every 200 people in UK are homeless, according to Shelter
Jeebus! 300,000 sleeping rough? Change the entire political system now!
Using official government data and freedom of information returns from local authorities, it estimates that 307,000 people are sleeping rough, or accommodated in temporary housing, bed and breakfast rooms, or hostels – an increase of 13,000 over the past year.
Oh, wait. Maybe 5,000, possibly 10,000 sleeping rough. 290,000 to 295,000 in that part of the welfare system, the safety net, which prevents people from sleeping rough.
So, trick question. Is this evidence of the scum Tories shitting on the poor or evidence that the welfare safety net largely works?
