Homeless are chucked out

NEW LABOUR will condemn hundreds of homeless people to the streets as extra hostel beds provided during the winter are closed this week. Labour's "homelessness tsar" Louise Casey caused outrage last year when she attacked rough sleepers.

Some 500 extra beds in hostels were provided by the government's Rough Sleepers Unit. But many residents will now be chucked onto the streets and may be forced into begging which, of course, New Labour will attack them for.
