I guess it depends on where you live. There are excellent council funded homeless hostel and outreach services where I am. The council did try to slash the funding last year but there was local outcry by us council taxpayers and they were forced to back down, and cut our bin collections instead.

Its further confirmation that we are regressing towards something akin to a Victorian like society along with all the social injustices and inequalities that went with that time.

Dont be so sure about that. Our prison system is already buckling under the weight of all the drug dependent junkies never mind the other mentally ill people who should be receiving psychiatric care rather than serving jail time. I dont think they have the space to accommodate our homeless population, criminalized or otherwise.
