‘Perth, we’re in trouble’: Scaffidi’s tweet and the standard we walk past

If the standard you walk past is the standard you accept, might I respectfully suggest Lisa Scaffidi raises her standards?

On Sunday, the City of Perth’s suspended Lord Mayor tweeted two photos.

Shown in the images were two men, at two different inner city locations.

They were both asleep with their meagre possessions nearby.

One had a couple of small suitcases with him, the other had not much more than a yoga mat and a dirty old pillow.

The most obvious assumption one would make when looking at the photos would be that these two men were homeless.
