POLL: Was council leader Simon Dudley right to call on police to take action over rough sleepers in Windsor?

POLL: Was council leader Simon Dudley right to call on police to take action over rough sleepers in Windsor?

Yes

No

I'm undecided

The leader of the Royal Borough has been thrust into the national spotlight after calling for police to act on ‘aggressive begging and intimidation in Windsor’ ahead of May’s royal wedding.

It follows a Twitter exchange between Cllr Simon Dudley and Windsor police, in which he asked the force to address an ‘epidemic of rough sleeping and vagrancy’ before the wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle.

In a tweet, the leader said: “It’s a life choice, not homelessness. It’s a profession. We deal with all genuine cases of homelessness.”

The remarks have received a mixed response online.
