A SOLDIER sleeping rough is either deep undercover or a victim of official neglect, it has emerged.
Corporal Tom Logan, of 22 SAS Regiment, spends his days begging outside a train station, either as part of official strategy to thwart a potential terrorist attack or because untreated PTSD has seen him lose his home.
Passerby Donna Sheridan said: “He’s doing a very good impression of a homeless person, with his troubled expression and his bottle of Frosty Jack’s.
“If I were a terrorist, I’d assume this was just more evidence of the West’s impending collapse rather than part of an effective and considered defence strategy.
“The government is really taking this threat seriously, because there’s former soldiers who look like they’re homeless everywhere you look.”
A government spokesman said: “The amount of ex-servicemen sleeping rough is handy, because it means the undercover ones can easily blend in.
“Plus our operators learn many valuable skills that will help them in their post-army careers, such as improvising a comfortable bed from cardboard.”
