UK deals with sharp spikes in homeless – by putting sharp spikes in homeless

This is how the government maintains the illusion that somehow it has solved the homeless crisis. Because after all, it’s out of sight, out of mind. Way back in the 1990s, the spoof news programme, The Day Today, ran an item alleging that the police were clamping the homeless, in which they managed to take in one of the female pop stars of the period. What was a joke then becomes, unfortunately, just that bit more credible now.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today)

The government has unveiled plans to reduce the worrying spike in the number of homeless people across the UK.

By putting spikes in them:

homeless spikes

And hosing them down with water.

And confiscating their bedding and belongings.

And allowing rents to increase dramatically.

And taxing bedrooms.

And capping housing benefit for low-earners.

Nice the see the government isn’t ignoring the homeless.

Although it might be better if it did.
