There was a lot of anger towards these people a year ago. Let's hope they're all doing good now.

On Wednesday I saw one of the guys back in Lewes looking very disheveled. Felt sorry that things hadn't changed for him and may have even got worse for him.

Good question 35. I thought the consensus was that many of the people we saw sitting collecting money downtown were junkies who shared a house and were getting money for a fix. If this was the case then they must have got the money somewhere else or given heroin up or at least reduced their consumption. Sorry to read your post hamlyn. Any other news anyone.

Yeah, I somehow imagine that the pandemic has not been much of a great "leveler" for those poorest in our society.

In the week before lockdown, central government gave local councils several million pounds to enable councils to put all homeless people into temporary accomodation. That's why they're gone. They'll be back sleeping in doorways when the money runs out.

All the time the county lines drug system runs they will have problems getting out of the rut. The police have been able to have a crack at this during lockdown (Couriers on trains posing as essential workers have been a bit easier to find) but it will soon be back to normal with cheaper drugs flooding the streets. I believe that one way to have a go is to have true deterrent sentences for all involved in dealing, and that includes the children. At the same time make drugs available for free in shooting galleries. If anyone else has suggestion on how to stop it, do say.

But... but... but... Olivier. Doesn't the fact that they're all now gone tell you something. That they were actually street homeless and all the nasty allegations that were made on this forum were, for the most part, unfounded. I vaguely remember some or other lunatic on here saying that he'd spotted one of them driving off in a nice Audi A3 at the end of the day.

I spoke to the bloke who used to camp out at the side of Boots one day. Told him he'd been the subject of a lot of chat online and it turned out he had a flat in Landport, a house outside town a campervan and a BMW.
"Do I?" he said "that's fantastic, can you find out where they are for me?"

I feel with each passing day, Tom Pains credibility on this pandemic issue wanes. Not that much credibility was warranted to... more
