WHAT a marvellous idea to open the main library as homes for the homeless.

I regularly go through Birkenhead precinct and see men sleeping under sleeping bags in shop doorways.

My heart goes out to them.

There are many empty shops and buildings all over the country.

Why not open them up and house people?

We are supposed to be one of the wealthiest countries, yet we’ve got foodbanks and homeless people all over.

It’s about time the Government got its act together and really made a change to what is happening all over our country.
