Sad sight: elderly man forced to beg for access to public housing

Concerns have been raised that the pension may no longer be livable today, after a confused elderly man made headlines after begging in public to be put back on government subsidies.

The clearly unwell man, who was evicted from public housing in 2021, has since spent his days pleading for money from everyone he meets, even going so far as to email all his acquaintances asking for contributions to his go-fund-me.

The man faced further setbacks recently, when many of his belongings were forcibly repossessed by the government, on the grounds that they were actually the property of his previous employer. The man is said to even be facing legal action over claims he owes thousands in unpaid taxes, which may push him back into bankruptcy for the third time.
