Christmas Housing Crisis

Almost 320,000 ­people will be homeless this Christmas because of the housing crisis. There’s one in 200 people that are living in makeshift accommodation, hostels or sleeping rough, and the amount of homeless has increased by 13,000 last year to 319,837.

This includes 294,952 people in emergency ­accommodation or B&Bs, 5,096 rough sleepers, 14,867 in hostels and 4,922 in rooms offered by social services. London is the worst with one person in 52 (170,000) identified as homeless. In Brighton, it’s one in 67, Birmingham one in 73 and Manchester one in 135.

The amount sleeping rough has more than doubled since the Tories came to power in 2010 when there were 1,768 people living on the streets. But earlier this year the Government announced it was spending £100 million to tackle the problem.

But half had already been committed to tackling rough sleeping and homelessness, with the rest “reprioritisation” within existing budgets.

We urgently need action now.

The charity highlighted the case of Telli Afrik, who had a job but could not afford his private rent. He sleeps in one room in a hostel with wife Janet and children, Bridgit, three, and Beatrice, five, in Waltham Forest, East London, and his family are at breaking point.

Communities Secretary James Brokenshire stated: “We are determined to respond to the causes of homelessness.”

Welcome to Theresa May’s Dickensian England as we fall further into the trenches of purgatory, dragged there by this vile shameful Tory government who couldn’t care less as long as they hold on to power.

The Tories are hate machines which just rolls on, creating suffering and death in its wake, and there’s no way to support this deliberate Tory policy that enforces poverty, and then there are the Tory voters that are so full of hatred that they will go mad if you criticise the Tory party.

But the Tories housing policy is to make more people homeless and to target the poor, the sick, the dying and the disabled as they can’t argue back against the Tory bullies, and with things as they’re going, they’ll be housing the sick, the dying and the disabled in workhouses several years down the line, if Tory voters let them get away with it.

Welcome to Theresa May’s Tory Britain where the streets are paved with homeless people, even entire families while Theresa May’s Tory government continue to be propped up.

So, it’s a Merry Christmas from your wicked Tory party, but don’t worry, you’ll be able to get a food bank parcel, don’t worry, your accommodation is only temporary, a hostel with a family of five living in it, and then when they do get permanent housing, if they ever do, the government will sort them out a nice Universal Credit package that might take around 5 weeks to sort out.

Welcome to the Tory party factory where they tell you that they want to support their citizens and that they genuinely care about you, but what they’ve really done is cause heartbreak, and it all started off with Margaret Thatcher selling off council homes.

Many of those local authority houses were sold for a pittance and finished up in private landlords hands. Now housing benefit doesn’t come back to the council and not enough homes are built, so housing is beyond peoples reach.

It should make you laugh because now we have the Tories addressing the homelessness problem that they created in the first place, you really couldn’t make this stuff up.

The Tories are always discussing the problem of homelessness, that they created and are in denial of, and in a civilised nation, solving the dilemma should be at the pinnacle of their priorities, whichever party are in government.

But do you really think they’ll consider all those homeless people this Christmas when they’re eating their Turkey and sipping champagne in front of the fireplace?

It’s really disheartening to see people homeless particularly at Christmas, but at any time it’s sad, but of course, our government don’t give a damn, and I honestly don’t believe anybody imagined the suffering that such a ruthless assortment of dictators could force on people with their neverending austerity policies.

AUSTERITY, DEMOCRACY AND, PROTEST

It’s the uninterested conformist broadcasting and, an indecisive political group and, an extensive population who have become observers rather than performers in their everyday lives, who have produced the wrong image that Britain is taking its austerity battering laying down.

Nevertheless, this couldn’t be furthermore from what’s going on because many of the most disenfranchised groups in UK culture are moving up, unrest is being instigated and, flames of discord are beating the powder keg of the mainstream state of mind.

Winston Churchill said that, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on”.

I shadow no party and, do get satisfaction in exposing David Cameron’s deficit arguments and, as long as the party carries on talking down the economy by means of the blame game, the trust of the people will not be given, or have a chance to return.

Without trust and confidence there can be no real development in parliament because the debt is one big shambles.  It’s common sense, in case terms, that a millionaire’s debt would be bigger than the majority of people, so, as a result the United Kingdom would have a higher debt and deficit than the majority of countries because, we are the sixth largest economy.

The present government and, the fiscal mock-up they reinforce are reducing people to penury and, entire segments of the UK population.  The cardinal number of young people have been out of work for periods lasting more than two years and; it’s the highest in twenty years and, the cost of living is ascending at four times the ratio of peoples wages.

This Christmas 80,000 children will be on the streets and, 600,000 additional children will be living in poverty by the next election and, this is all going on while the government glorifies itself as a rapidly increasing economy in the western world.

Financial expansion on the back of poverty wages and cuts to the welfare state which are leaving people penniless.  This is extremely bad and, it’s without question a matter of life and death.  The people are now too poor to live and, as well, too poor to die.

And people are fighting back, but it’s no duck soup out there because we have at present become a Police State and, people are discovering their entitlement to object repelled by consecutive parliaments under the disguise of anti terror laws.

On top of that, they are challenged by a militarised, government police force that utilises physical force, chemical agents, helicopters and, intelligence crews.  Sporting cameras and making snatch and grab detentions, armoured vehicles, horses, dogs and the real danger of arrest.

This, amalgamated with harmful press reports about trouble making demonstrators has achieved success in making protest a personally menacing and mostly avoided action to participate in.

David Cameron would like people to think the markets loan in the same way as retail banks lend to you and I, but in general, when the facts and figures are put into a frame of reference, these childish deficit accounts merely fail to stand up to the real truth.

The deficit saga is the fattest fabrication ever imposed upon the people and, it has been promoted by taking advantage of people’s financial ignorance.

Cameron is amusing himself and, playing the blame game to demoralise trust and increase the justification of austerity, so that he can use austerity as  grounds for a smaller state to gain lower taxes and, to portray Labour as a party that can’t be entrusted with the country’s financial affairs once more.

Consequently, the Conservatives will be the victors a second term because, people vote out of fear.  The plan has succeeded previously and, will be effective again because, in the end, elections are gained and lost on financial plausibility and, consequently because people think that Labour created the mess, they won’t have confidence in them again.

In the meanwhile there are people out there that are trying to demonstrate, but the motivation of protest and civil disobedience is to get in the way and to throw into confusion the normal goings on and, to outline people’s awareness to an issue.

Nevertheless, a protest is now described as somehow bad and wrong, but in short people have the entitlement to complain, so long as they don’t complain, that means make no pandemonium, get in no one’s way and, for goodness sake’s don’t get irate.

This has put a strain on demonstration groups to be fuzzy and ineffectual and, if they want good press reporting, or the desired support, they should keep their demonstrations nonviolent, to keep calm and carry on, but in spite of this, they in fact will make no real difference.
