BBC Scotland longing for the good-old-days when Glasgow didn’t have fewer rough-sleepers than ANY city in Europe?

Back in 2019, BBC Scotland had plenty to say about rough-sleeping but they seem to have gone off the topic.

Could this be why?

Throughout last year [2021] Glasgow had less than 10 people sleeping rough on the streets, often as low as 4 at any one time with the street team and partners actively working to prevent 30 people a week from having to sleep outdoors. That is still 4 too many and we are working hard to find the right solution to each and every one of them. However there is no European City that has achieved such low numbers. 

We recognise that photographs of large numbers of people attending food banks in Glasgow would suggest the streets are full of people sleeping on the streets. We also support over 60 people on the streets who beg, however not all people who beg are roofless and not all people who are roofless beg.
