Wheelie_bins_homeless_people_TRIANGLENEWS_12JPGMultimillionaire Peter Dawe (pictured above), who ran as the Brexit Party candidate in the General Election, has ‘crafted a pod’ out of two wheelie bins that he hopes will somehow alleviate the problem of rough sleeping. 

Dawe fashioned what he called a ‘sleep pod’ out of two red wheelie bins, which turn on a hinge to create enough room for someone to lie down in. The entrepreneur, who picked up 1.9% of the votes when he ran in the General Election in Cambridge last year, says the ‘invention’ costs just £100. He has dozens of companies and projects listed on his website, and he believes the ‘invention’ could have a global impact.

“I saw on the telly rough sleepers complaining they had been kicked and pissed upon,” he explained.

“Lying on the street in a sleeping bag, you are very vulnerable.”
