90% of homeless people in the UK are men. Shelter is a charity campaigning for the homeless. You won’t believe who’s been the charity’s Chief Executive since February.

Well, I don’t know how this didn’t come to our attention before now.

In April 2014 we challenged Polly Neate, then Chief Executive of Women’s Aid, to retract seven lies and misleading statements made in an online discussion by Franki Hackett, a Women’s Aid spokeswoman who later won a Lying Feminist of the Month award for those lies and statements. Our blog piece on the matter is here. Predictably, Neate refused to retract them, or apologise. Regular followers of this blog will be only too aware of the duplicity of Polly Neate and Women’s Aid in downplaying the issue of male victims of domestic violence.

I was vaguely aware that the odious Ms Neate had left Women’s Aid in February, but had heard nothing of her since. It was by chance that today I discovered through a tiny piece in the Times that she’s been Chief Executive of Shelter, a charity campaigning for the homeless, for the past nine months. 90% of the street homeless in the UK are men. You will not be surprised by this page and others on the Shelter website, that the homeless are invariably described as ‘people’, not ‘overwhelmingly men’. What a disgusting thing to do, to appoint a woman who hates men as much as Polly Neate, to lead a charity for the homeless.

  1. “The Week” magazine has a full page advert for the homeless charity Centrepoint. The picture features a picture of “Abbi”. a homeless young woman . I am afraid that the sad reality is that the picture of “Abbi” will evoke more donations than that of any man.

  2. I expect all the coming imagery will only have homeless females shown. How many mens homeless shelters will be closed for shiny new Feminist ones with all the trimmings for the Feminist staff and lady guests (if they can find any). What a malignant sow.

  3. At Christmas I usually make a donation to the homeless charity “Crises” mainly because homelessness is mainly a male problem.I plan to do so this time but maybe in addition I will send a letter to Shelter explaining why I prefer not to give money to them.

  4. But remember one in a ten women attempted homelessness.

    au revoir Shelter, no more funding from me then.
    Blindingly bad PR move on the part of Shelter…
    so …. was Polly pushed or did she jump?
