This is exactly why many out there look down upon people who through no fault of their own are plunged into a system of controlling hell. Media showbiz ideology and bless them, some of the participants agreeing to be on these shows not realising they are only fueling the flames with titles like, bargain buy mum on welfare, showbiz lifestyle on benefits, 11 kids and loving life on benefits.....doesn`t help, does it?

Good one Verc. I wonder why their hasn't been a show made where a lesser known MP takes on the life of someone on either JSA or Universal Credit and goes undercover to see what it`s like? Not having dealt with the system themselves and being thrown into it head first? Although I doubt going undercover wouldn`t work as their name could suggest who they are so that would blow the lid off. It would need to be MP lives on UC/JSA for six months with no other assistance. They would have to do everything anyone unemployed has to do, the job searching, the budgeting, the living on the breadline mentality....no access to their own savings or car...

Wonder why nobody has thought this one up yet? Maybe they have but can`t find anyone with the guts to take it on.
