HOMELESS MAN TRYING TO RAISE TEN QUID - ROUGH SLEEPERS IN THE CITY
the sight of homeless people dotted around central London, the part of London most visited by tourists might come as a surprise to those very people here to see the landmarks and icons around the city. It'd be interesting to see the results of a Poll specifically targeting London's visitors to guage their reactions on seeing London's homeless. The Mayor (Boris Johnson) I believe made a promise to reduce the number of rough sleepers on the cold and lonely but noisy streets around the West End but the reverse seems to have occurred and now there are significantly more homeless seen and they consist of immigrants, people unable to cope with 'normal' life, ex Army personnel, druggies, runaways and the shunned, the latter a group which I am a part of but not yet homeless though I have slept rough and no doubt will be forced to again
