GENERAL ELECTION 2019: Your letters

Why is the Labour Party not shouting from the rafters about the horror of homelessness? Why have they not made it the election issue?

For those lucky enough not to be affected directly, “austerity” can seem like an abstract idea. But the stark evidence is there every day.

When we see people sleeping on wet cardboard boxes in tunnels or shop doorways – that is austerity. Working people living in tents – austerity. Women on the streets because the council told them they made themselves intentionally homeless for walking out on an abusive partner – austerity.
