Homeless.
« on: Feb 07, 2019, 07:33:14 AM »
Somebody suggested yesterday the council should have officers going around removing sleeping bags belonging to the beggars. Does that sound good to everyone on here.

I think any old bag should be removed from the street..

They could take them all round to Brian's place, he'd be on hand to dish out Tea, sandwiches and help. Being he's such a sweet caring helpful kind of a guy.  ;D

As I pointed out somewhere else, the council has a duty to remove stray dogs to a safe place, and a similar system could be worked out for vagrants. People sitting around begging, or sleeping out, could be removed. Another thing the council does is to house travellers, whether they travel or not, so it can be done.

I would query re those poor sods "sleeping out"; where would they be removed to?  Perhaps the Cof E cold do something to assist.  There are plenty of churches around and the door could remain unlocked of an evening for the destitute to, at least, get a night's roof over their heads.  However, it won't happen!  The vicar and a curate could, no doubt, maintain a watch turn and turn about to maintain good order and vigilance.  A policeman could pop his head in on his beat from time to time to check all is in order.  Pie in the sky land again though!

For many years, as far back as David Shepherd, the homeless used to sleep in the crypt of the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool and receive various facilities.   I don't know whether that still goes one.

Most are not homeless, just self employed scroungers claiming benefits.
Saw one today discreetly using a ipad whilst begging & yes he had the requisite mangy dog used as a prop with him.

Here on The Wirral there are plans to allow the homeless to sleep in one of the largest libraries.
Everything I can't find is in a totally secure place.

I was thinking Raven's house or in corridors leading to Council flats. They could be provided with tents to put up in council house gardens.

There are many neglected grass verges in residential areas. They could camp on those. I'm sure many kindly residents would bring them an early morning cuppa.
