Another fine mess...
The "fine the homeless £1,000" idea has been another hugely damaging national news story for the city of Stoke-on-Trent. I'd say we now need an investigation into exactly where and who this idea came from, how it was allowed to be tabled and then taken up as a serious proposal, and why no-one seemed to realise that it would inevitably backfire — with maximum negative publicity for the city. Then the timelines on all that should be made public.
