Don't blame you .

I haven't seen it yet Pete because I was at work, will watch it later tonight when I get home from work on catchup and will let you know. I did see a clip on tv the other day about it and did recognise one blokes face.


Grimsby and proud!

Poverty tourism at its very worst. Justified under the banner of "This is what happens to a town when its industries die out" which may have been true 30 years ago but now? Forget the venue this "programme" was all about taking advantage of half a dozen or so social misfits who didn't deserve the treatment they got but were not blessed with the intelligence to see that they were being compromised.  But it's O.K. there can be howls of derision and hand wringing from politicians and the press about the state of Britain in the second decade of the 21st. century. It isn't typical of Grimsby or anywhere else in the country either....Shameful...


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

I don't think anyone is suggesting it is typical of Grimsby, I tuned in thinking I would hate it and I actually think they did a good job in highlighting certain issues and not demonising those on benefits as they had in the previous series. I thought the young lad sat on a wall explaining to his mate why some women fall into prostitution was a brilliant bit of documentary and showed a great deal of empathy and understanding from such a young lad.
