Can you tell me how to get.. how to get to Benefits Street...

Well the yanks did have their Sesame Street right!  Cheesy
So anyone else watching this? It certainly seems ilke one of those shows that will have the rich and poor at each others throats arguing about who has it worse and who is to blame.
I know poverty like this from my own youth and a parent that couldn't get a grip and to a point I've sort of escaped it but it's horrible to see that it's still going on.
Now George wants to axe help for under 25s in favour of the generation that spent all the money decades ago and insist that people work to support themselves or rot - all at the same time that we're giving away jobs to foreigners from Bulgaria and Romania  Crazy
Is there a remedy for it all?

No. From the adverts it sounded like the usual fictional "mockumentary".

Did you give up watching it, 7up?
I looked at the write-up a few days ago and just saw it as another trashy C4 reality show.

It's our politicians that work on Sesame Street and we're going to need a Miracle on 34th Street or it will be a Nightmare on Elm Street.

Sadly SHMBO likes it. Along with the other trashy programs like the "chat" shows that are on in the am. Thank gowd we have a pvr and she watches them on her own  Cheesy
I accidentally saw about 2 min of it while getting ready to walk the dog this am, sad what people watch like BB etc.
