it's a small price to pay just to hose
off a bit of stink! In denying our responsibility there is more to
us stinking then the smell!
Or if due to a total lack of her responsibility, she sets fire to the place and kills me and my daughter, then we, through no fault of our own, pay
the ultimate price!
Other than that though, what a load of crock...me nor anyone else can be responsible for her bad choices. Yes, she should be in an institution where
she can't get alcohol and gets help with her mental health issues, but she isn't and I'm sorry but there is nothing I can do about that and if you
honestly think that by just accepting her presence and cleaning up after her is going to help her, then you are in cloud cuckoo land.
On another note, I don't know if you're using a phone to type your messages, but the formatting makes it really difficult to read.
I would like to know what your answer is to the homeless problem is?
Why do you assume that she made bad choices?
Could it not be her bad luck or does luck have nothing to do with
homelessness in your world?
I wonder if you should ever end up in a similar predicament would you
want to live as not to offend anyone like yourself?
Would you not ask anyone for help?
would you crawl away and end yourself as to not be a burden towards
any like minded individuals?
I wonder, do you not realize that we have succeeded because of our ability
to cooperate or do you believe that selfishness was the asset that enabled
us to dominate this world?
I hope to God you never have to be judged by someone like yourself
as empathy is not part of your vocabulary!
I never suggested that cleaning up after her would help her!
Oh and I would be fine being in cloud cuckoo land as long as there
are no selfish people there!

Excuse me...you know nothing about me whatsoever and your incredibly rude and ignorant post demonstrates that! As well as having brought my daughter
up on my own after leaving an abusive relationship when she was a baby, I worked hard, got an honours degree and paid my way. A couple of years ago I
became very ill and have not been able to work, I am in constant pain and will be on medication that requires constant monitoring for the rest of my
I have volunteered with disabled adults to help them learn to use computers and the internet and also with older teenagers from dysfunctional
families, to help them get their lives on track and obtain and sustain a tenancy as part of a voluntary befriending service, this was while I was
working a full time job and looking after my daughter. I know only too well the challenges that face so many people and have always gone out of my
way to help others and have never judged anyone because of who they are. However, in the case of the teenage befriending role, the vast majority of
the kids were grateful for the help and advice I could give them and went on to get flats, even jobs and then look after the flats that they had,
paying their rent etc, even the ones that couldn't find jobs would make sure that the housing benefit they received was always sent to the landlord,
but there was a couple that just didn't care, their backgrounds were no worse than the others, but all they wanted to do was get drunk and stoned,
have parties in their flats, causing huge amounts of damage, spending the housing benefit and not paying the rent, and they would eventually get
evicted...one lad had 7 different flats, all paid for by the taxpayer, but he couldn't be arsed to take any responsibility himself and he trashed
every single one of them and racked up huge rent arrears, which the landlords never got back!
As such, with the safety net of housing benefit and welfare payments we have in the UK, this woman has, like that teenager (only she is in her 40's)
has had so many different flats and hostel accommodation, but every time she gets her giro, the whole lot is spent on drink and cigarettes, she then
becomes violent and abusive, the police are then called and she ultimately gets evicted again...How many flats can she be given to trash? How much
time and effort from the agencies does she have to have, before she makes a better choice and decides to stay sober, because if she did that then she
wouldn't be homeless.
I am currently living on a very small amount of money and my daughter who is 19 now is a full time student and whilst my housing benefit covers the
majority of my rent, I still have to pay extra out of my disability benefit. Not only that, but I obviously have to pay for gas, electricity, council
tax, internet, food etc and between my benefit and my daughter's student loans, we just about get by and you know what....I'm so bloody angry with
your arrogant, ignorant assumptions about me that I would dearly love to go out and buy some booze and have a few stiff drinks...And I do have £10 to
last until the end of the week, so I could buy it, but then my daughter and I wouldn't have any food for the rest of the week, so there is no way
that I would be so irresponsible but yet you demand that I should always be looking out for and helping this woman when she decided to dispense with
all of her responsibilities...
There are plenty of solutions to the homeless problem in the UK as housing benefit is paid, so all you have to do is make sure that your rent check
goes to the landlord and not the off-licence and that you live in your house, taking care of it and being respectful to those around you and you're
pretty much sorted.
And as I have said repeatedly in this thread, I am well aware that some people have mental health issues and cannot live on their own and should be in
secure, residential facilities, but sadly they are lacking in availability. However, that should not mean that my right to a peaceful and safe home
is taken away from me to accommodate a drunken women, lying in her own urine on the stairs outside my door and it does not make me uncompassionate or
judgmental in any way
