Coronavirus: since lockdown, hundreds are now homeless in Manchester alone

Andy Burnham: he’s Mayor of Greater Manchester. What’s the situation everywhere else?

So how well do you think those Tory policies to protect us all and keep us in our homes are doing?

According to Andy Burnham, the Mayor of Greater Manchester, 344 people had been recorded as newly homeless and requiring accommodation between the time the coronavirus lockdown was imposed and April 22.

He said 115 people were sleeping rough.

On top of this, people are being released from prison with nowhere to go, and government support – announced for people found to be homeless before lockdown – isn’t available for the newly-homeless.

Oh – and evictions haven’t stopped completely, despite Tory promises.

That’s just in Greater Manchester. What’s happening to the rest of the UK?

    The poorer you are the worst the Tories treat you. It’s a calculated vendetta which is feeding the far right hate against the poor.
