'The Conservative Party has decided the best way to stop homeless people from dying outside Parliament is to make them go away and die somewhere else.
Tory-run Westminster council is using an excuse that the streets have to be cleaned, so private belongings left there by homeless people will be removed, to force people away from the area.
The council is claiming, weakly, that the purge is not aimed at anybody in particular, but it seems certain this underhanded move has been motivated by the death of Gyula Remes in late December.
Signs have been put up on walls directly opposite tributes to Mr Remes, saying: “These walkways are cleaned on a daily basis. Private property must not be left unattended within the walkways. Any property or possessions that appear to be left unattended for any period of time and for whatever reason may be removed without any further notice and may be disposed of as litter or waste.”
In cold winter weather, possessions like blankets and sleeping bags are a lifeline for people who have been forced to sleep rough because of cruel Conservative policies.
The threat to remove these items under the pretext of cleaning the streets is a transparent attempt to move homeless people away, so MPs don’t have to see the human effect of their policies and don’t have to witness the deaths that are directly attributable to their decisions.'
