How many posts have I made on royals and the homeless?

The prime minister said Thursday she does not agree with Dudley’s call for police action, emphasizing that councils like the one Dudley heads must act to help the homeless.

“I think it is important that councils work hard to ensure that they are providing accommodation for those people who are homeless,” said May.

Homeless charities reacted angrily Thursday to his suggestion that homelessness should be treated as a police matter so Windsor can make a positive impression on visitors during the royal nuptials. They also rejected the assertion that Windsor’s homeless were living on the streets by choice.

Greg Beales, a spokesman for Shelter, said people sleeping on the streets are in desperate need of help, particularly in winter when the weather can be dangerously cold.

“Stigmatizing or punishing them is totally counter-productive,” he said.

Murphy James of the Windsor Homeless Project called Dudley’s views offensive.

“It’s absolutely abhorrent that anybody has got these views in this day and age, especially a lead councilor of the borough,” he said.

Harry and Markle will be wed on the closed-off castle grounds but have said they want the public to be involved to some degree. Harry has supported a number of charity events to help the homeless.
