Homeless people will be cleared from the streets of London and Windsor ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal wedding, according to various news reports. If the reports are accurate, this could be to avoid embarrassment at sucha high profile wedding that will be broadcast all over the world.
Ladbible.com reports: Thousands of people are expected to flock to the Berkshire town when Harry and Meghan tie the knot on 19 May – and councillor Dudley doesn’t want them to see ‘aggressive begging and intimidation’ from the homeless residents.
Russell Brand, a former radio personality and celebrity who was once worth millions and reports now suggest he wasted all the money is back on welfare and state benefits has highlighted the upcoming issue by being the face of a petition to find a home for all the homeless people that will be cleared from the streets.
Russell Brand’s petition hopes to allow charity Slough Homeless Our Concern to use a council building to rehouse those without a roof over their heads.
More than 15,000 people have signed the initiative, with Brand writing: “As a wedding present for Harry and Meghan, and as a rebuke to the low frequency conduct of Councillor Dudley and any who would further victimise the vulnerable, we are asking that Slough Council agree to a ‘change of use’ for a building in the town that will enable SHOC to have a new home.
“It will cost them nothing but the ink in the pen to commit to a ‘change of use’ for this building – you know how easy it is to do that – councils have to do it every time they turn a local shop into a supermarket chain express store.
“This is the perfect way to ensure that love and community trump selfishness and profit as well as being the perfect wedding present for a cool couple. Let’s face it, what else can we give them? They must have enough toasters.”
