Why not go back further, like 2003 for example?

The causes of it are wide and varied.
I suppose whoever is in govt will find they are rightly challenged on it but to suggest it's a uniquely Tory issue is, well, political.


It's as political as it gets! And there are no winners. 8,000 fewer bed spaces for single homeless people in England since 2010, yet homelessness has risen 169% - of course there are more people on the street.

Your own link shows homelessness dropping from 138,000 in 2003 to just over 40,000 in 2010 when it started rising again.

New Labour should be thoroughly slaughtered for their record from 1996-2003. I'll stand against anyone who allows 124,000 children to live in temporary accommodation.
