I used to work in an unemployment office and the number of times the claiments would say this to me and each one used to think it was really original - ho ho......

Great series - Yosser Hughes story is incredible and then there was the guy with the pet rabbits....

What a fantastic piece of english drama..If you haven't watched this then get your tenner out and buy it you will not be dissapointed...:thumbsup:

:giggle: My fave line (Yosser Hughes) - "I'm desperate, Dan"

It was a great series in its time, which made a bit of statement, but not sure how watchable it would be now.

Brilliant stuff....
I was only wondering the other week why it's never been repeated on UKTV/Gold, etc like Auf Weidersen Pet has been!

The guy with the rabbits was Chrissy played by Michael Angeliss .

Brilliant series , this version has the original Play for Today that actually explains the roots of the whole series . I was born & live in Liverpool , I was there in the 80's when this was filmed & it really was a drastic & soul destroying time as what the series actually portrays .

Very moving stories , one of the greatest plays ever devised by a brilliant screenwriter .

If ever there was a testament as to what Thatcher destroyed up North , I mean Watford onwards , this is it . Watch , look & learn , about the destruction of community after community in the name of progress & equality .



Rant over , a brilliant buy , well worth anyones' £10

Gone for this thanks.

Remember bits of it from when I was a kid but never saw all of it.

Cheers

Yeh Thatcher destroyed my area too, Barnsley!!!! She closed all the mines with bully boy tactics...I was about 15 and we lived on food parcels and other hand outs!!!
Hope she rots in hell when she snuffs it!!

Bump. £8.99:thumbsup: (£8.10 with QC)
