The Threat to Security in Britain

Counselor of the Royal Windsor District and Maidenhead Simon Dudley urged the police to clean homeless people from the streets before the wedding of Prince Harry and actress Megan Markle. This is reported by the BBC.

In his opinion, street begging has already created a “hostile atmosphere” for residents and tourists, and in May, when the wedding is scheduled, the number of people wishing to come and see the celebration will increase significantly.

He also noted that homeless people pose a security threat.

The appeal of Dudley has already caused criticism from human rights activists who say that people who happened to be on the street were victims of circumstances, and did not choose such a fate themselves.
