Homeless People

I whole heartily agree with Kathy Birt and her letter to the Editor in todays Guardian (22nd Nov 2022)regarding the homeless. Politicians often take credit and claim they have done good work for people. Sadly these claims too often fall short of what is needed. That is the case of these mobile units, great to have a warm place to sleep. However, 8am it’s out the door until 8pm regardless of the weather or temperature. What are these hapless people supposed to do for twelve hours. When the island has a storm and islanders lose power for a few days, warming centres are set up for those without heat. These centres provide hot coffee and a reasonable amount of comfort. So, why can this not be done for the homeless, a place to sleep is only half the solution. Government can do better, can do more, it just takes a little effort. We know our politicians do not suffer too much,eh!
God Bless and keep reading
