I don't suppose there is any chance of Burnham letting the Council Tax payers of Manchester how much he and the Council have squandered on that white elephant homeless shelter that closed on Christmas eve and hasn't opened since, or is he just gonna tack the loss on to this years Council tax bills?  :-\

Newcastle rough sleepers tell their stories

There were 4,677 people sleeping rough in England in autumn 2018, according to official estimates.

The figure represents a slight fall of 74 on 2017, however rises were recorded in London, the Midlands, north-east and Yorkshire and the Humber.

Numbers are still up 2,909 since the start of the decade, with charities calling for "fundamental action to tackle the root causes".

The government has pledged 100m over two years to tackle rough sleeping.

It will trial schemes in Greater Manchester, Merseyside and the West Midlands where people are given housing without first being required to give up drugs or alcohol, a model which has been hailed a success in Finland.




The figures are only a single night snapshot, with councils either counting or estimating the number of rough sleepers.

London saw an increase from 1,137 to 1,283.

Birmingham went from 57 rough sleepers in 2017 to 91. Manchester's figure increased from 94 to 123.

However Brighton and Hove, which had one of the highest rates of rough sleeping in previous years, dropped from 178 to 64.

Burnham promised free bus travel for 16-19 year olds in his campaign to become "Mayor" , he said at the time that local bus companies would fund them with a smaller contribution from college's, well now it turns out that the funding is not forthcoming and next year all us suckers that pay council tax are having 15 tacked onto our bills on top of his "precept" next year, so we are paying to fund his election promises, it's good isn't it? Last year it was pay up for more coppers, but I haven't seen any evidence of that, and hows eradicating rough sleeping by 2020 going Andy? Oh I forgot you blamed the Government for not making progress with that, did anyone expect anything else from this leech?
