Clover Moore and The Homeless


Dear Clover

I have read with concern about what happened at Wentworth Park and while I don't believe anything I read in The Daily Telegraph, I am still troubled by what the council did. (I know the stupid Tele attacks anything you do)

I read the statement on your website but it didn't really answer my worries.

You said that you didn't move anyone on or kick them out but why insist that they can't even have a tent?

Getting rid of excess furniture and junk is understandable but why allow them only to have a swag and a few bags. That seems very unfair to me. 

It leaves the perception that it was all about appearances and "cleaning up" the area, in attempt to appease some well heeled residents.

I am sure that your heart is in the right place but this leaves a sour taste in my mouth I'm afraid.
