7 days on the breadline
7 days on the breadline is aÂ three part series starts tonight (at 9pm) on itv1 and for once it looks like being a series that is not about promoting former "celebs" - but looks at real people, ie. people like you and me.
I know how hard times are for most people, I am hoping the programme will show each real family:
- walking across their town to pay out Â£100 for gas and electric, knowing that they won't have enough to last out the month and will have to go back and buy more.
- the constant letters demanding money, phone calls that occur at meal times saying there are ways to write off their debts, the unlawful cold calls that continue when the customer has asked them to stop (andÂ highlight how the customer has been ignored)
- look at juggling their food budgets to pay for their council tax
- highlight how long it takes and the struggle it is to get unenforceable bank charges reversed (and show how damaging this action is on the entire monthly budget of the household)
It is Keith Allen in tonights episode, he is regarded as a speaking his mind, hopefully his "fame" won't have blunted his tongue?
