Anybody see this on Saturday night.

I spent a few years in Wantage, and this is very recognisable !

I found it scary how much like it was the people I grew up with and especially the people who got in the village pub. Wearing your football shirt 24/7 was typical early 90s fashio. When I think about some of the real life characters and their stories, some of them are funnier.

This has put me off Cheesy

Her shirts have garnered a lot of attention among Town fans as she has a cracking selection of Town shirts. The unfortunate matter is the fact that the family who star in and write the show are all Pox fans! Making the tone and reasoning behind the shirts much less fun.

Clearly true. It's chav porn, let's laugh at the underclass. The Tory aim is to drive these people out of the country into the towns and cities, it's a process which has been going on for very many years. Since the 18th Century in England.

One of the actors called Sluggs.. actually lives across the road from me in Stratton, Ciren. Real last name is Sleggs.

Found the series really good so far.

They're brother and sister in real life, from Ciren.

You cannot tell from the programme that they are a married couple?

You'd have a good point if the show was mocking them for being poor/on benefits/ill educated/living on an estate etc.

Unfortunately (for you) it's none of those is it.

Isn't it  Hmmm

Drama in This Country through a sort of media mafia is ruled by the public school elite.... wasn't always thus, but sadly is now....

for these people sneering at the plebs, is what they're brought up to do.
