There used to be people sleeping in tents at Changi beach but the govt managed to solve the problem by requiring campers to have permits. I guess they are now living in comfortable homes.
I have seen many people sleeping at HDB void decks, I was thinking these people probably fell asleep out of boredom and forgot to go home.
In the report above, each homeless person in gets 56 pounds (about S$150?) per week from the British govt, it is not enough for rent + food so the homeless people in the picture decided to spend all their pounds on cappuccino and sandwitch. Somehow the British homeless are not too smart right? .... You can't get a place in London for 56 pounds, but there are much cheaper places in Newcastle. ....guess they like the museums and art galleries in London alot.
We are so lucky to be in Singapore where there's no homeless problem and everyone has a nice comfortable home to go back to.
