Another no fixed abode what a joke
Give all these crims a home and there will be no more crimes as it all ways seems to be of no fixed abodes

This low life needs a spade across it’s spine, so it would be unable to wipe it’s own backside, let alone drive.

GOOD! Hope he and his kind reflects on his stupidity while costing taxpayers a fortune while inside.
