A multimillionaire invented bin pods for the homeless and was widely rubbished
Despite a slight drop in homeless numbers from 2018 to 2019, trumpeted by the government as proof their policies are working, the numbers of people without a permanent place to live has skyrocketed since 2010.
One former Brexit Party candidate and multimillionaire, Peter Dawe, has come up with a solution – according to him.
This video from The Mirror shows what he’s made.
So, let’s get this straight –
He’s fastened two bins together
It’s not rainproof
He’s charging £100 per pod
These reactions from Twitter sum up the general feeling towards the invention.

Or, as the world’s sixth richest country, we could just build enough decent homes that people can afford to live in.https://t.co/aRhNVK4wo9

Multi-millionaire former Brexit Party candidate telling the homeless to sleep in wheely bins. I've got a radical idea myself. How about the government provides rough sleepers with social housing instead?https://t.co/rEqH1SDNdC

As optics go, this has to be on the ‘appalling’ end of the spectrum. https://t.co/OP1V8TtvUn

Get you the charitable spirit of a multimillionaire trying to make more money by selling sleeping bins to the homeless https://t.co/X9oy51ktpd

“Invents” bin pods is a bit of a fucking stretch of the imagination for “push two bins together” is it not?
Fucking “invents bin pods”?!? Where the fuck do you think they’ve been sleeping you utter melt, the Radisson?

You might think this is a thoroughly fucking terrible idea that is equal parts heartless and insulting, but once you factor in the fact that it costs £100, I think you’ll agree that this person is an amoral streak of shit who needs to fuck permanently off.https://t.co/lXwGGqsRUh

“You know, if Millionaires like me pay our fair share in in tax then we might have the money to alleviate homeless….No, No fuck that. Put them in bins” https://t.co/80X02zKGyJ

A multimillionaire puts two trash bins together and sells them to alleviate ‘the homeless problem’.
But who will solve ‘the multimillionaire problem’?
