Last month Bournmouth Borough Council introduced a new measure to stop homeless people sleeping rough on the streets. Hurrah! Three cheers for Bournmouth! Hip! Hip! Hur……No! sorry not hurrah I’m afraid. All is not what it seems.
So what measure did they introduce?
Well the plan is to play loud bagpipe music around the Bus station. The nasally sounds are being blasted through speakers at a coach station from midnight until 6.30am, and apparently it’s working!
Well of course the music pisses off the homeless and they go elswhere. So not really addressing the problem just moving it somwhere more convinient (socially acceptable).
Let us not forget that Bagpipes were used as a weapon of war to instill terror in to the hearts of the enemy and this just goes to show what the council think of those who have fallen on hard times.
The initiative is the brainchild of Bournemouth Borough Council and Dorset Police.
If I was a Council Tax payer in Bournmouth I would be up in arms at this idiotic idea. The Council has a duty to these people that is being abrogated by stupid people. Lets not mention the Military Covenant just yet!
People without homes need help, not hinderance. That anyone on the council could think that this is a good idea is a good indication the council is not fit for purpose. They should be dis-barred from holding office as incompetant fools!
I think the time has come for some real people to be elected to the council instead of these syncophantic morons who care not one iota for people.
We need to make our voices heard and the louder we shout the better these muppets will hear us. What we need to shout is simple.
STOP LETTING STUPID PEOPLE
MAKE IMPORTANT DECISIONS
