The Boris effect - Homelessness doubles in three years for young people in London

This morning the BBC are reporting that homelessness has doubled in three years amongst Londons young people. Boris Johnson has been the Tory mayor for five years. Is he proud of this statistic? As a volunteer for a London homeless charity it is heartbreaking to see this. The sad truth is that this is a direct result of the policies of the Tory Mayor and the ConDem coalition government. Any decent Mayor and any decent govenment should always see less people on the street at the end of their term than the start. It is a mark of failure of both Mayor and Government policy.
