Why? Are many British ex servicemen homeless in America?

Being a British ex serviceman you wonder how there map reading skills were so bad they ended in the US...didn't they hear of Garmin or Magallen

Hang on, being homeless in sunny Palo Alto, dull Silicon Valley heartland, isn't quiet the same as sleeping out on a piss stained bit of cardboard in wintry London.

Does AMMM 'write' for the NYT now? She could employ him as a bodyguard; 'Watch out for a dribble-chinned Ulsterman reeking of skidmarks and Brasso'

This one is about a septic but no doubt relevant to many Brits

Back Home, and Homeless - NYTimes.com
That poor old hobo.

He's homeless, jobless, and living in a hedge. With his space blankets, waterproof clothing, paperback books, writing materials, shaving tackle, laptop and GPS. He has access to one of the largest circulating newspaper on the planet. (NYT online has over 30 million unique visitors a month) You can even follow him via his Twitter account FFS. Life must be a complete bummer.

So Cyclic, I have to agree with you. There can be no doubt his situation is relevant to many British, homeless ex servicemen. Have you ever seen a homeless person? You chopper.

To be honest, I'd rather have a three way, with Big Lee Naples and Ciggie, before I read anymore of that shite.

Have some sense of human suffering.

He's in soul sucking Palo Alto, warmer it may be, but there is no there there. I just hope he gets better and can be pushing a shopping cart round the Tenderloin one day like a proper bum.

A very poor article published in a rag of rapidly diminishing importance. Did a very nice job of advancing the real concern of homeless ex service in the US very smartly to the rear. For the moment our system is better than theirs in the advance of the axe wielders. For the moment.

What a load of old ******* fanny! He's so desolate that he can afford to go to Stanford! What a load of pony. Oh woe is me, boo hoo, I served in Afghanistan now I can't cope on my own. I know a Yank Airborne soldier who's just got out, and he told me there is so many systems in place to look after people who are leaving the services that its unreal. This guys is just another ******* journo. Fair do he's got that ex serviceman kudos, but he's still a journo trying to sell copy. You don't just walk into a job at NY Times. Someone'll dust off that shite ******* Soldier at Christmas poem next

It's a good job we have a welfare state here and council housing and stuff like that really.
Err ... Council accommodation is far more rarer that rocking-horse shit these days.

As for the welfare bit .... Stand back everybody, David Cameron is about to do his mad chainsaw stunt and cut every state benefit in existence (starting April 2012) .... and trigger off a coup d'état. :nod:
