Headlines like this should make anyone but hardcore heartless bastards think twice about supporting another 5 years of Tory rule.

As the article states "and living in temporary accommodation across Britain" they aren't exactly homeless , anyone living in rented accommodation is effectively living in temporary accommodation , I'm more concerned for the people without a roof this winter and yes genuine homelessness has risen because of the Tories.

As Scotland is still a part of the UK the SNP preside over a homelessness problem too.

In 2018-19, 36,465 homeless applications were made, and 29,894 households were assessed as homeless by their local authority. This equates to a household losing their home every 17.5 minutes.



14,075
children were in households assessed as homeless in 2017/18.
38 per day
This is equivalent to 38 children in Scotland becoming homeless every day.
scotland.shelter.org.uk...

Homelessness is a failure by politicians to look after the people that need help , the SNP are part of that failure but Nicola Sturgeon has her focus on fighting the lost battle of Independence rather than addressing the real problems in Scotland.

That tempory accommodation amounts to housing families with children in hostels across the land.

That's not a home, its a holiday from hell, that never seems to end.

I would string Nicola Sturgeon up from a tree right next to the rest of them gortex having lived in her constituency for 15 years, with plenty of hostels and poor homeless souls all over the area.

As to the battle for Independence, after a hard Brexit, or Boris shaped deal, that will be on the cards again.

We don't have the problems up here, in the same manner as down south homelessness wise, or at least we dont have the numbers.

43,000 souls is hardly a kick in the arse all the same.

Might have helped should we actually have built housing association properties to accommodate the numbers, but chance would be a fine thing indeed present forced austerity and all that jazz.

Let's not forget that Austerity was the creation of Angela Merkel who I guess was well used to a bit of austerity growing up in East Germany , as it matched their ideology it was eagerly adopted by the Tories under Osborne as a way to slash and burn public services but it is the EU who hold the can for that , it's done more harm than good for the people and is another example of the EU stuffing things up.

Seems to me the old style politics is not fit for the 21st century , power needs to shift away from MP'S with big business conflicts of interests and move toward a more democratic "for the people" style of government , we make the country what it is so we should reap the rewards.

From my perspective austerity seems to have been a very Tory shaped tool for the past decade.

On the style politics, well let's face it, it's not fit for purpose and broken by design.

Money talks, everybody else just does the walk, and politicians just seem to add to the mess.

My take on the matter, this nation needs another 5 years of Tory rule about as much as she needs a bullet to the head, but at the end of the day "they" are all a shower of crooks and then some.



They make the mess but we are the ones that have to lie in it.

"At least 135,000 children in Britain to be homeless at Christmas"

Headlines like this should make anyone but hardcore heartless bastards think twice about supporting another 5 years of Tory rule.


www.theguardian.com... MPPBHmRdr00QXzQq5BO6GF6QWOp1i7LM



At least 135,000 children will be homeless and living in temporary accommodation across Britain on Christmas day


Ah, election week. The shills are are out in force.
So, accordig to the left wing rag you linked, not homeless then. Living in temporary accomodation.
Most of the problem - over 50% of it - and the rise is coming fro London.
Perhaps Londoners need to start kicking out Labour in their constituencies and elect a Tory mayor.


Living in temporary accommodation is homeless.


Living in temporary accomodation means just that.
Homeless, as the left wing rag knows, envokes images of kids on streets huddled in the cold.
Pathetic electioneering headlines.
Besides looks to be mainly a Labour area issue.


That may be your view but it's not how its used in government statistics.

Possibly consider that wealthier areas with less homelessness are more likely to vote Tory.


I doubt the Guardian article was intended to provoke a serious debate on Govt statistics or definitions.
It's a left wing rag with a headline leading up to an election.


So you think kids staying overnight in a hostel have a home?



No, I know they are not on the streets. Safe, warm and fed over Christmas.
Not really what the left wing rag was aiming for though with their headline.


I noticed you failed to answer the question.

The 'left wing rag' is reporting figures from a major charity and using official government definitions.

If you find that misleading it seems more to do with your lack of understanding than anything the Guardian is doing.





No, I understand exactly what the left wing rag was doing - as do you.


Clearly not as you seem to not understand the difference between homelessness and sleeping rough.

If you want news papers to dumb down their headlines for you perhaps I could recommend the Sun or the Daily Star.


The Guardian is a left wing rag - not news.
It's for those that lose elections and like to cry about it.
I am sure it's your favourite newspaper.



Left wing - yes
Rag - matter of opinion

It's headline was still accurate.


The Grauniad - Wrong about everything. All the time.

Got to laugh at Corbyn.
He wants to be responsible for our national security yet he's grabbing documents of Reddit and going straight to the media to amplify them... then those documents turn out to be leaked by Russia and selectively edited.
