Instead of writing to a politician why not be proactive. What about getting your neighbors together and doing a fundraiser for the homeless in your city? This way when you get to a certain amount you can get them one way tickets to Birmingham.

I understand the problem, it seems to have grown in the last few years.

When I moved out to the country the nearest small town was touristy and had a pleasant atmosphere. Now there are more street drinkers about and many of the local shops have closed down. Probably getting on for half are now charity shops and the whole atmosphere of the place has changed.

On top of that I found out that one bright spark, now apparently deceased, had seen a business opportunity missed by most. He took himself off to the nearest large town and found a d**g dealer and started supplying the locals here. Whatever profit he made wasn't spent on a luxurious lifestyle, he had a small camp under a flyover.

I got used to street drinkers in the City. They were harmless enough, just made the place look untidy and weren't too fussy where they urinated. One even apologised to me as I walked past. 'Sorry if I offended you' he said. Offended me?? That was the block I lived in. It was my bloody walls he was corroding.

I was told that a lot of the street drinkers were ex-army. If that's the case then shame on the Army for allowing men to serve and then putting them back into society in no fit state to live a decent and profitable life.

Well done for writing to your MP. This sort of issue needs tackling, which means investing in people. I will say that not all street drinkers are homeless. Most I knew of had a home to go to. They just preferred to congregate in the street.

Hey welcome to Tory Britain, were the poor live in filth because the Tory's believe they are filth and the Rich live on another planet in a lovely island tax haven called Britain but not the same Britain obviously.

So WHO do we blame, Blair for being a false Labour Tory Left and actually continuing Thatchers policy of sell off's but through the back door with the implementation of the So called Devolution (which in truth does not help us at all but does create an entire new upper middle class and upper class through local authority and NHS corruption, overpaid salary's for useless Chief Executive's (when the NHS was centrally managed each hospital was audited and this corruption simply would not have happened - same with the Council's and there chief executive's).

Welcome to an Britain were the only hope is actually TOO left wing but still remains the only hope for a reversal of this political ideological plague of homelessness and cruelty that has swept our nation since the Tory's won (or was the election rigged).

In the past, before Thatcher (By the way any Tory's wanting to comment she never fixed our economy the turn around began in the Asian stock markets and affected all western nation's not only us so in fact she had very little to do with the economic turn around if anything at all) we had state housing, at least three daily police officer on the beat patrol's down all street's, industry was subsidized to and the government stepped in to help when they were in trouble not just the state ran industrys but also privately owned company's, Bus routes were ran by the local authority's whom answered to the Secretary of state, bus were regular, on time and frequent, Job's paid a minimum of 4 time's the rate of the Dole though Dole was just about enough to live on (Thatcher spelled the end of that by removing the legal framework with meant that wages HAD to rise with inflation and causing them in real term's to then drop in real term's value every year for the past 30 odd years now while she deliberately left the benefit's untouched knowing full well that inflation would do more to destroy the system than she ever could over the succeeding several decades and indeed it did so), people whom were unemployed understandably wanted a job because they could then afford the luxury's they craved.

Homelessness was never a crime in this country BUT it was almost eradicated until Tory sell off's of the national (Coucil local authority) housing stock.

Street cleaners were very frequent, twice a week were I used to live and the pavement's were kept in good order, every few month's a guy with a steamer would go around looking for bubble gum to get up, all that is gone.

But hey let's reward the rich because they need it right, after all that hard work not giving there workers ethical pay rises in line with inflation after all who does not like a fat cat even when it get's so fat the roof caves in under it.

You know though, it is not only our nation that is suffering this, we had a far more fair society than the Yank's for example whom are also suffering it but in our case because our nation was more fair we notice the change with far more anger but being Brit's we then don't do anything about it until it is too late.

I will be damned to hell and back if my nation ever takes culinary advice from a nation which cannot even make a sausage without over complicating both the process and the flavour. There are three good flavours for sausages. Pork, beef, or pork and beef. It does not need to be spiced, it does not need to be seasoned, it does not need to taste of anything other than the meat that is in the thing.

We Brits have NOTHING to learn from the Germans about food, what so ever. I find virtually all German food utterly offensive to the taste buds, personally.

Germany? Who mentioned them. I'm Italian governor. I think they have a bit of a leg up on just about everyone with very few exceptions.

Dude, you have a food there called "Jellied Eel".

Jellied Eel.

That's why we fought for independence.

I think that is why they are all always yelling, 'God save the Queen!', because she has to eat stuff like that all the time.

God may be omnipotent, but even he has to push the boundaries to prevent sudden gastronomic fatality when it comes to British cuisine.

I mean, seriously.

Jellied Eel.

That sounds like a name for a garage band or something they do to prisoners in GITMO.

I hear you. Someone sat around and said, 'Let's take this slimy sea creature and turn it into jelly. Then we can consume it and pretend it tastes good!'.

Interrogator: Where are the bombs, Achmed?

Achmed: I will never tell you anything!

Interrogator: This is a jar of Jellied Eels.

Achmed: The bombs are here, here, and here. My pin number is 1234. My mothers middle name is Doris. Our headquarters are here. Can I be waterboarded now?

If Britain would have just dropped containers of jellied eel on the Nazis in 1939 the war would have been over in 7 minutes. But, nooooooooooo, the had to go and eat that stuff instead.

Thanks, Britain - the world.

The Guardian edited out the subsequent photo where they were all shown lying in the street dead from that rather foolish and disgusting act.

The UK didn't used to be an island nation. They were once attached to Europe. With the discovery of Jellied Eels however, the rest of Europe dug a giant channel to separate them.
