christmas is about warmth love and family but there are so many people in the u.k. that have none of these things i want to see what it was like to be on the top the signs to go through christmas as a homeless person. or a father. yes but i hope so. well i know it's on your list. i see it anything but a lump of coal although i've got to. since two thousand and ten the number of rough sleepers in the u.k. has increased by over fifty percent that means literally thousands are out on the street every night. i wasn't going to have enough time to really understand
homelessness but everyone has to face the fear of that first night out i change them sometimes of clothes packed a plastic bag. i have no idea where i'm going to spend christmas or even where i'm going to sleep. last night any. groups a few things but not too much when they. think it's just going to be like old ghost let's run. just above the water. sometimes. and please put people in a good mood. and it's now. clean myself a bit less it also. seems bush.
that a bit suitcase. but i have no money. and i haven't eaten anything and the only way i'm going to get to eat something is on the boat finding it's full always begging for enough money to get me some sweets. and that's the first part of the plan. this regularly fit by looking at charities but i have no idea when. i need some advice from someone on. the bus journey we need this communal food state you know. move places with money go and get some in three months time. and i'm trying to get enough enough to. keep. it was what i was hoping to.

as for to realize already this is a spree of horrible. to most when i was i think that there were most of those of us who were to remember my feats. as leg lever in the slush. but even on the streets one day because it can coach humiliating and frightening for some of them in the stairwell they could tell me of any time. i could easily see what drugs or alcohol would have as a way to block out french realistic. you need help to consent to have someone catch me from. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or
rejected. so when you want to be president bush or. more somehow want to be preached. to the right to be prosperous like them up for free in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the wives of my. question. is that come to russia no one has ever no one has ever had a country never even heard about most.

brothers kevin and brian toohey their experiences exchange keys in their lives rough and close traffic on the streets of cities at the end of the century. take those babies moving the really. don't stick you much in a yard but he'll. tell me no good to be good for you to get killed just moved up a little bit today these people here do nothing still they moved out yeah yeah yeah i was too slow change the bench is missing is from going to. light up the teddy should be always f. ing up no spatial. really dangerous yet i can hold with population. consisting of
a long violin can move a few people out of here over. pagans yet when i'm out of it people play for food are almost always kind of a chronic pain there was one thing along here with the queer feel how i feel more goes down you know the hormone. kind of thing of the news and both of us going to know i woke up and i am i being run so i can fail the money had been stolen and i was left there what would you stick with it just because of the drugs that you state here is money. you can handle off when we got us then the one that saw. less the square piccadilly circus yeah it was right with tourists and they're just waiting to get rid of all these easy bodies it's like fifteen years ago the brothers would fish around this area so that brian is now this time kevin the set up is an addiction recovery can. sultan sings it took
a terrible personal tragedy to make him turn this month around how the thought of caring what price of oil prices are up way across the way for a woman. i am less than really. sixty four though i go for a like i was when i was a zero zero zero zero am a southie dog and i've written called who would overcome me i know i can so put on a venture in recovery from a veteran of the past and force is no hopeless whether he be proud or it. that's half the battle it seems just finding the will to carry on the next day we drove down to kevin's home by the seaside sleeping. during a bunch of the money that was finally christmas day. as it makes me crazier stuff and i tell people if you're the star of that you're the star of the of the kitchen was a made all this stuff we have to see we have to have you already do we go to movies

oh wrong oh oh oh me oh my goodness they're not. yeah yeah you could see a little bit of it. but missed out on christmas with my family but that was real christmas spirit in that as much as i hated being out in the streets i love being a consequence. you might just be a few days in this real year but it's clear that the holiday still gives people hope i've waited to open a cause i've been given by. a few words that reminds me just lucky i really am.
seeing. my son doing drugs my nephews was still in drugs my sister just weren't doing drugs it was like an epidemic of drug abuse america's public enemy number one in the united states is drug abuse started when anthony users in a prison population sewer we started treating sick people people who are addicted to these drugs like criminals while i was on the hill. then the war on drugs was a mistake there are countless number of people who are in prison for. certain sins for boring or minor. offenders in the drug trade it's
