Dispossessed

Interesting and scary story about dispossessed Polish immigrants forced to live homeless in London or being returned home. Bet this one doesn’t make the front cover of The Daily Mail.

Janet drew my attention to this because she found the picture painted of London disturbingly reminiscent of the Victorian age, full of gin palaces with no safety net other than the workhouse for those who fell on hard time — except of course that there’s no workhouse so the alcoholics live on the street.
