On the day Vox Political tries to help a campaign providing constructive support for a homeless person, this clown has to pipe up with his nonsense.

Grant Shapps (that seems to be his name today) said he would not give money to people sleeping rough as “you don’t know how that support is going to be used”, according to this Mirror article.

In that case, he should be a huge supporter of the campaign to help Dean, who has cerebral palsy, find a place to live.

You can read Shapps’s words on the Mirror website and on the face of it, he seems to be advocating the kind of support that’s being set up for Dean.

But to believe that, you would have to forget that Shapps is co-chairman of a political party that actively creates homelessness.

Just look at the graph (above) and see how the number of people sleeping rough in London has increased since the Tories took office in 2010.
