Any suggestions?

Background: Unfortunately the local media, especially the Edinburgh News conducted a hate campaign against us. The nrewspapers said local residents thought we were "grubby". They kept quoting the local bankers. Try living in a tent for three months without heat and up to 100 mph winds smashing into the tent. We did have a number of homeless and alcoholic people there also. The media hounded us for that.

Going forward: We are now without a home and Edinburgh Council has made it plain that we can't camp anywhere.

So - please help with suggestions. I know this will attract hate comments from the banks. We can wear that.

Thanks. :)
