But where will they go?
Maybe they should try an airport

Homeless people stay at London's Gatwick Airport because they think of it as a safe haven away from the perils of life on the streets.

It's been claimed that more than 40 rough sleepers* make the airport their home every year.

A few days ago, Anthony Delaney was locked up after making the airport his home for four years. In scenes reminiscent of the Steven Spielberg movie The Terminal, the trained chef ate, showered and slept at the airport, only leaving occasionally to pick up his jobseeker's allowance.
