O tidings of comfort and joy!

18 Nov
For the past fortnight or so a few dozen homeless folks have been camping around the fountain in Queen’s Gardens. It was a protest at what was perceived to be the uncaring attitude of the Council towards rough sleepers; they wanted to be put in houses or flats rather than put in hostels. I don’t know the rights and wrongs of this issue and I’m coming here with less than half a story as by the time I got round to going to town the camp had been evicted leaving only this colourful tent which was pulled down just after I took this on Thursday. The next day the Council planted four big Xmas trees on the site, well we can’t have the poor and  homeless ruining the season of good will to all men now, can we?

    Obviously this is the “beer tent.”

    Well, the Council responds as expected then.
