Relevant article showing photos of the London spikes here. Apparently the number of homeless there is increasing:

Katharine Sacks-Jones, head of policy and campaigns at Crisis, said: “This is happening in a context where rough sleeping has gone up massively. Over the last three years rough sleeping has risen by 36% nationally and by 75% in London. More than 6,400 people slept rough in London last year.””The reason for that increase is the continuing economic downturn, the housing shortage, and cuts to benefits, particularly housing benefit.”

Yay austerity! Why not add a dollop of hostile symbolism while you’re at it?
