How did you become homeless?

I asked a young man on the streets of Hastings when and how he became homeless.  He told me he had returned from some time in France, and discovered that though British, he was not eligible for any help for three months.  He only had enough money to last one month, and then couldn’t pay his rent.  That was last January, and he is still homeless coming up to Christmas.  Is this where all these new rules and cuts are pushing people?

When do we start pushing back?
