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!
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.
