In the town where I live it is full of homeless people who get drunk and dog # all over the pavements. Picture a grey land with nothing but that to offer and you get a good idea of what it is like here.

It is a dirty place full of miserable unimaginative and aggressive people. I am ashamed. Pity the poor people who have to tolerate this. Living in an African hut with some nice African kush is better than the life I am living here.

It really is that unpleasant. Sorry, but it is pointless beating around the bush; there'll only be a drunk homeless person sat next to a steaming pile of dog excrement behind it anyway. Lovely, eh?

Move then.
I lived in a #hole estate and moved to a nicer part of Britain.
No job no problem, claim your benefits in a nicer place and the local council will pay your rent for a nice room to start then onwards and upwards.

Whining on ATS will do nothing, you have to get off your arse and take responsibility for your life.
No sympathy from me.

Crikey, is this the "mother" country you speak of, with a queen an all. Ashes test coming up soon. I guess we'll reap the rewards of the current situ over there.

kind regards,

Leave.
Seriously.
If your life is that bleak and you don't do something about it, you have no one to blame but yourself.

So you look out your front door and call it a *nation?*


Why don't you call the thread this? "My immediate neighbourhood, a small place full of homeless, drunks and dog #."

Or this? "Here's my blanket appraisal of a whole country based on how much I dislike my home town and the mood I'm in!"

Yeah, MUCH better in parts of Africa where their dogs don't # in the streets and everyone has a home. Why the heck do they call it 'Third World' anyway? What's that about?? Must be paradise living in a 'hut' and smoking weed all day.

Have you got out of bed the wrong side and put your Wallace and Grommit 'Stereotype and Prejudice' spectacles on?

Sounds like we're focusing on the negative. Walking around with our heads to the ground all day. Try looking up.

Robots and automation provide an unimaginable amounts of material wealth. The need for human labor is becoming less and less. There are billions of people in the world. Unless you are planning mass genocide how are we going to create enough jobs for people to have meaningful employment?

I think culture and community is the answer. I know it's a blasphemy in the church of libertarian minds to suggest that maybe we should have public policy of trying to help people get out of homelessness, hopelessness, and abject poverty into a more rewarding mindset, occupation, and contribution to society.

I for one do not like seeing homeless people wallowing in their own excrement. I understand its on them and not me to help them improve their lives. I just think we have so many people with nothing meaningful to do maybe we can convince the oligarchs to have a more enlightened self-interest in serving the community's commonwealth.

Same in my town.

Whis is why I dont understand why we are sending $14 billion in foreign aid and letting in refugees and unskilled migrants when we can not even house, educate and give healthcare to the people we have got!

Why? Perhaps socialism has something to do with it?
Why not draw benefits even if able-bodied if the state will hand you a subsistence amount as one bloke mentioned?
What was that old Brit comedy I used to watch of the Bucket couple, Keeping Up Appearances?

The major problem with this country is, that if you have too little money, even a total dive of a town can seem like it is draining your resources far too fast, to live there. That is not an illusion, it IS too expensive. Rental and house prices generally are obscene, with even properties that do not come up to the minimum standards that a local council will accept for tenants to live in (which are pretty bloody low in some places), costing more than a monthly pay check for an average working person.

I think that if rents were more affordable, if properties dwelt in by tenants were maintained by the landlord to a minimum standard which does not amount to barely standing, if the councils would actually enforce standards to a greater degree than "If it will not kill you today, but might do tomorrow, we will give your landlord six months to fix it, otherwise we will do not a thing for you", then things would get less bleak. People would be less willing to allow their dogs to crap all over the neighborhood, if they felt that it was worth looking after.


That being said, I cannot stand people letting their dogs mess the pavement up, and I do not excuse people who do, in any circumstance beyond a critical, life or death emergency, allow their dogs to foul without picking it up. There is no excuse, no matter what crappy circumstance an owner might be in, with regard to their living circumstances.

This is the letter I just wrote to the local MP (Conservative (as if you had to guess):


Dear Mr Txxxxx, I am writing to you regarding some very important and urgent issues that I am noticing in Pxxxxxxe. I will try to be brief and straight to the point:

1. There are many homeless people living on the beach front in the rocks of the walk way between the beach and the railway station up to Exxxxxn Gxxxn. They are living in tents and there is human excrement in this area. There are far too many begging people in town making a nuisance with busking who can't play. They look terrible, are drinking and making shopping unpleasant and uncomfortable. There is a health hazard aspect to this in terms of disease spreading. I was talking with one such person today to find out about his life and he was obviously very poorly; bronchitis and was spitting phlegm on the side walk. He has been living in the cold all winter. This is a growing problem, numbers are increasing as strains of TB, etc become resistant to antibiotics. This is why we have to look after people and insure a certain level of civilization because we all are vulnerable to disease. I see this as a problem that will begin to affect us in the future if we keep letting people through the safety net. Charles Dickens warned us about poverty and how it will drag down existence for all of us.

2. Between Nxxxxn all the way to Exxxxxn Gxxxn there is so much dog faeces. People are even putting it in my bin. I am not able to leave my wheelie bin outside my house in Nxxxxn without finding the little black bags in it. It is all over the pavements and coastal walk way. Walking through Pxxxxxxe this morning was awful. It looks so poor and miserable now. There was a stabbing last night in the town centre (drunks as usual). This must be dealt with now. It has gone far and low enough. If we want to maintain a tourist destination that is fit for older retired people and families then we need to address these issues. I feel ashamed as it stands. I am sorry to be so forward about this, but it matters. I don't want to see any more disintegration of our society and environment. We must address these issues before they get out of hand. If people have dogs then they must be encouraged to obey the law and be punished financially if they don't clear up after their dogs.

I care a lot about people. I am upset for those men that they are living like that. It is complex, but it ruins life for all of us, bringing the tone down to public violence and unhygienic behavior. As numbers grow it will become a real burden unless we keep on top of it. Thanks for your time, Sir.


I am not being mean, but we can't keep letting people through the safety net of welfare. We will end up with a right old dump that is not fit for any of us to live in if we keep avoiding the issue and not dealing with it.
