Reader’s letter: Not a choice
Home Secretary Suella Braverman has a long and undistinguished record of saying offensive an unacceptable things, but even for her the suggestion that sleeping rough is a “lifestyle choice” plumbs new depths.
No Mrs Braverman, it is not a lifestyle choice to have to sleep rough.
It is usually a result of numerous factors, especially the trashing of the economy by the Conservative Party and their year-on-year failure to ensure that enough homes are built to cope with demand.
If the Home Secretary does not understand this then she is simply not fit to be in that job. — DAVID WATTS, Newark Lib Dems Parliamentary Candidate.
