David Mcginty's insight:

So this is Christmas, expect breathtaking displays of hypocrisy from our glorious leaders. Homelessness is partly driven by keeping the housing bubble going, which only benefits those who now regard it as investment, many of which do not live here and pay no council tax, yet  own property which requires the rest of us to support  maintanance of, and office blocks lie empty while people freeze on the streets. I dare say one of the cabinet will soon come out with a gem of wisdom like "There is no proven link between homelessness and poverty" as they have stated about crime, much like the cancer deniers in he Tobacco industry did.
