A homeless man who was seen every day at the tube entrance to Portcullis House (PCH) Westminster underground station has died. Police have cordoned off the entrance and Transport for London has reported ‘access issues’.
Those are the bare facts of the ending of a life.
Not much is known about the man, but Jeremy Corbyn’s ‘LOTO’ (leader of the opposition) team regularly used to take him hot food from the PCH canteen. He had an engaging personality in tragic circumstances but was often heard vocally complaining that the buskers kept him awake.
Another victim has fallen to the scourge of homelessness and poverty in one of the richest countries in the world.
Corbyn’s team are said to be devastated. A LOTO spokesperson told the SKWAWKBOX:
He died outside the very building that should have saved him. We are heartbroken.
Flowers from both the LOTO team and Corbyn personally have been placed.
