Comparing an article from "The Mail on Sunday" and a leaflet from "Shelter" about the issue of homelessness.
What opinions do people have about homelessness? Is it like that of the journalist writing for the "Mail on Sunday", or does it correspond more with that of fundraisers "Shelter"? This essay will compare and contrast the opinions of "Is he keeping the tourists away?" and "Five faces of homelessness".
The anonymous journalist who is writing for "The Mail on Sunday" has the opposite attitude to the homeless charity "Shelter". The journalist and the people interviewed agree with each other and say that homelessness is not society's problem to sort out. He or she also gives the impression that homeless people are vermin and that it is their own fault that they have nowhere to live.
".... Hounded by a plague of new beggars" - Line 13
The word "plague" suggests a link to the Black Death that involved rats, also known as vermin, who scavenge and steal from people. The journalist does not seem to understand that homeless people do not choose to be homeless and the charity, "Shelter" explains the truth about homelessness.
