A UK council in Oxford, home of many intelligent people, have decided to fine homeless people for leaving their household goods on streets, under bridges, in parks, etc! In fact anywhere apart from indoors because the homeless do not have an indoors!
Jaggedone sent his superstar, homeless, CIA (Cockroach Infiltration Army) reporter to Oxford, Jeanne Paul-Clochard, via a sewer or two, to find out how the homeless are dealing with the fines; here his report:
Jean Paul Clochard interviews homeless man with flea bitten dog, "Hey old Bean (very posh Oxford accent) what do you think about these fines about leaving your household goods under a bridge?"
Homeless man, "Where the fuck should I put them? In my house!"
"But the council are fining you for leaving them outside, what are you going to do with them?"
"They can find me a home and I'll put them inside if it bothers them so fucking much!"
"But don't you think they are being rather stupid for fining you for having your household goods outside when you are homeless?"
"Man, we are in Oxford what do you expect, fucking Rocket Science?"
Jean Paul, "Well old chap, I certainly do!"
Homeless Man, "My fucking dog's got more brains than the bunch fining us for having our possessions outside when they know we are fucking homeless!"
There you have it, British bureaucracy at its finest in action attempting to achieve the impossible!
