    What a reasoned analysis – and challenge – Mr. Bruton offers as a former homeless person. It’s a kindly but scathing jibe at all those who think something should be done but don’t want to do it – “Not in my backyard” as Mr. Bruton quotes.

    For a reasonable amont of money, couldn’t a safe area be created, offering camping, live-in parking, dome facilities – and safety? Plus the bonus of dignity.

    A fine commentary – and two neat pictures, too.
