Exporting our inconvenient residents

Story from the Evening Standard about London Boroughs, including Lewisham, who are ‘outsourcing’ children and teenagers who need help and support to other areas. Presumably the council has excuses that convince themselves this is a good idea, but to me it all seems part of a pattern of wanting the borough to be clean, new, shiny, modern, prestigious and profitable and not wanting to deal with the reality of people’s need.
