Government policy boosting LGBT homelessness

Friday 27th June 2014

GOVERNMENT policy is leading to increased numbers of homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transexual (LGBT) people, trade union activists at the TUC LGBT conference said yesterday.

According to research institute NatCen, LGBT people are among minority groups who have found themselves disproportionately affected by Con-Dem cuts to jobs and public services.

Austerity cuts have lead to increasing demand on tailored services for LGBT users exactly at the time they are being cut,” said Unison delegate Anu Prashar.

Contrary to Prime Minister David Cameron’s motto, Ms Prashar argued that “we are not all in this together.”

With fewer than 12 months until the general election, delegates from several unions took a stand by speaking out against the Con-Dem coalition.

Earlier in the day Labour MP Gloria de Piero promised that Labour would keep pushing Tories and Lib Dems wherever their policies were falling behind.

The Ashfield MP said that her party was prepared to end the “hated bedroom tax,” which has affected many within the LGBT community.

In her speech opening conference, Ms Piero also blasted backwards views at the heart of the Tory’s new education curriculum, saying: “There is no place for the sort of prejudice we’ve seen in some text books in our schools.”

But Ms Piero found it hard to answer delegates’ questions around Labour’s position on returning school management powers to local authorities.

And a motion — which included a call to lobby the Labour party on LGBT issues — was passed unanimously.

  1. people who have decided not to have any spirituality or seek goals such as the value of morals are and why they exist, here I mean morals rather than why we exist, are more likely to become derelict or prone to become a victim of homelessness, I had a phone call with my daughter tonight, and brought up the situation of gamblers, in the small town I live in we have a lot of gambling machines, it is obvious that if you are involved with this addiction you are a courting your future as a potential casualty of becoming a derelict,
    I am not moralizing as much as stating the obvious, the individual has the choice of making a decision as to whether they decide to become mindful or not, this is not a occult or mystical commitment, it is a possibility that any one can have as a aspect that resides in the human being, this is not to say you have to go to a university for formal education, many who have a this type of education also lack insight or the ability to develop what I have outlined, this is because their education has become so linear and specialized that they are no longer able in a position to grasp what I mean.
