Demonstrations were organised after Simon Dudley, the Tory council leader in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, told the police to clear the area of rough sleepers and beggars before the royal wedding on May 19th 2018.
Dudley ordered the local police force, Thames Valley Police, to ‘deal with’ the ‘epidemic of rough sleeping and vagrancy’ in Windsor.
After a major backlash, Dudley told BBC Radio Berkshire that he ‘was not clear enough’, adding: ‘At no point have I said “move on the homeless”.
The key thing is to draw the distinction between homelessness – which is an abomination in a civilised society – and anti-social behaviour, which is a very bad and deteriorating situation in Windsor.’
However, a number of protest events have popped up on Facebook, urging people to line the royal wedding route.
