The government will want to brush this young woman’s death under the carpet, and that’s not OK | The Canary

The death of any 28-year-old is tragic in itself. But that of a young woman in Huddersfield shows how the government is failing a whole section of society.

On 19 February, Roxanne ‘Roxy’ Davies was admitted to hospital, semi-conscious, and put into intensive care. She had pneumonia but also endocarditis, a rare and potentially fatal infection of the heart’s inner lining. She died on 5 March at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

Sadly, Roxy is just one of hundreds of people, if not more, who die on our streets each year. But the government won’t record Roxy’s death for what it was. This is because she was a rough sleeper. And the government fails to keep any records of how many homeless people die in England and Wales, and why.

    See how people have become used to news like this by the lack of response. Readers should be outraged and say so but the fascists in power know exactly what they are doing and nobody cares until things begin to happen to them.
    Small increments have lead to murder by the government’s failure to protect its citizens and even do deliberate harm to us. Let’s just sit back and say nothing

    Hitler would be so proud of the UK as it is right now, he might have failed in Germany but he’s certainly succeeded here in Britain!

    It is a sad state of affairs that such deaths go unreported. Is the reason that this happens down to the fact that as a homeless person she obviously has “no fixed abode” and is therefore not registered with a GP and automatically included in NHS datasets? This is the current definition of a “non-person” as predicted by Orwell in his book 1984
