According to One Big Family, Medway Council’s homeless count is hugely inaccurate, with around 100 homeless people sleeping on the streets and only 15 known to the authorities.

A commenter on the source article said the police and council were supposed to patrol the High Street, and might have been able to help the man stay alive.

But, really, this is another death for which we can blame the Conservative Government.

There is plenty of available accommodation around; and plenty of money to put into the rehousing of the homeless – but the Tories have rationed the lot.

The only people allowed to benefit from the UK’s vast wealth are rich people, it seems.

At this time of year, one has to question the reasoning behind that.

A rough sleeper was found dead outside a shop doorway today.

The man, in his late 40s, is understood to have been discovered by security guards near the Poundland shop and Central Theatre [in Chatham High Street] at 11.40am as shoppers flooded the area for last-minute Christmas gifts.

His name has not been released although the non-profit group One Big Family says he attended its Christmas party for the homeless last Sunday.
