Immigration and drug addiction caused huge rise in homelessness, according to Tory minister’s LIES

Is James Brokenshire an imbecile, or does he think we are?

The Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government said the increase in homelessness since the Conservatives slithered into office in 2010 is not the result of government policy but is being driven by factors including the spread of psychoactive drugs such as spice, growth in non-UK nationals on the streets and family breakdown.

Oh, really?

Personally, I would have said it was due to income changes that made it impossible for renters to pay their landlords or for homeowners to keep up with their mortgage repayments and I would have said this was the result of policies including, but not limited to:

The Tory Bedroom Tax.

The Tory Universal Credit.

The Tory freeze (late a one per cent limit) on annual public sector pay increases.

The Tory squeeze on wages that forced them to plummet during the first half of the current decade.

Tory support for landlords that means they can force people to pay huge rents for accommodation that is unfit for human habitation.

And the electorate knows this.

Look at the responses to his claim:

Oh, and the Tory plan to eliminate homelessness by 2027? It requires the death of anybody who is homeless.

Labour’s John Healey puts the real reasons for the rise in homelessness in a nutshell in the following clip:

And Labour has a plan to help victims of Tory policies who end up sleeping rough:

“Oh, but we can’t support that, can we? It comes from that Jeremy Corbyn person and he’s a horrible Communist! All the newspapers and TV channels say it so it must be true, right?”

There’s a simple answer to the kind of person who says that – or anything similar to it.

Just point out that many of the people who are now sleeping rough were also persuaded to vote Conservative, in order to avoid the Labour policies that would have helped them avoid their current predicament.

    The lies these people come up with get more desperate and nonsensical each day. Surely nobody who isn’t a nasty fanatical Tory believes them?

      nmac064 have you heard the expression ‘mud sticks’ people will believe it and that makes me really angry, unfortunately people do not research the things they are told,and follow the lead like sheep to the slaughter, until it’s their time for a whiplashing from what the tories do!

    My brother tells me his neighbour has just been put on universal credit due to being hit in a car accident. First payment – £600.
    His rent? £700, the guys monthly outgoings – £1100.
    A shortfall of £500.
    Another person is going to be homeless through no fault of his own.

    having almost become homeless myself because of tory policies,and though no fault of my own, l truly don’t know how they have the bare faced cheek to push those lies to the public, lf my landlord of 19 years had not been a decent bloke, halved my debt and lowering my rent, l would have been homeless, l was not even informed of changes,(l am disabled with 3 chronic incurable illnesses, and depression because l cannot do what l was once able too) Tory propaganda even made me scared to go out doors as people believed their trash that disabled people were fraudsters and shirkers, as a result many were attacked on the streets,….. feed enough crap to those who cannot think things out and we will be on that same road of hatred again. Isn’t it time they were prosecuted for incitement of violence to those they lie about?

    Spice use is also their fault, they should have listened to the advice of the home affairs committee and reclassified cannabis as class c.
