    Fuck me. I saw this in the Philippines when the Pope had the indecency to time his visit to coincide with mine but at least they put the homeless up in a 5 star beach resort (many miles from Manila). And then bussed them back to the pavements once Popey went home.

    Celtic Manor anyone?

    You'd think they'd put them in a b&b, even some of the 100's of tents in the park for fans

    Weirdly quiet in town, not that many fans about and public seem to be staying away.

    Is there much in the way of visable homelessness in town today?

    I've just watched a vid from the deputy chief constable denying they're moving the homeless on

    There are some but not as many as usual
    Few regulars not turned up for food at FNB stall. Not seen anyone begging

    My sister said that local people are being advised not to go into town unless they have tickets. Not sure if its true, but if it is, fuck 'em, how dare they tell us not to go into our own city.

    As for moving the homeless people on, its a fucking disgrace.

    Seems to be true certainly for Saturday I live in riverside and they have security gated all the approaches into town and you need to have a ticket to get through.

    What the fucking hell do they think they're doing? At times like this I wish there was a collective will that would boycott the city centre for a while. They'd soon be begging us to go back in. Fuckers.

    Cant see how it would work, i mean most of town is closed, and only 80,000 tickets.... all the shops and pubs would be dead,.
