Naturally, Chris takes the self-righteous angle of the majority viewers picking on a minority group to beat up on. However justified that can sometimes be, don't you ever get bored with such negative hate-'em gang-banging?. Hopefully, for your next effort you'll balance it out with an expose of the destructive rip-off cheating renters and greedy consumers, then the generous, fairminded well-behaved ones, then close out the series with an expose of creative, life-enhancing, resource-conserving efficiency-oriented fairminded and generous corporations. There are some, you know; many of them even have kids of their own. Doubtless unlike you; - family love helps one develop from being community-divisive to community-supportive, even as many corporations are.

Thanks for your comments, David. However, making a personal attack on someone I care about on MY blog is not the right forum to express yourself. You don't know Chris as a person, and have no right to make judgements on her character, no matter what your grudge is. If you have something to say about the programme, talk to the producers at Top Shelf.

why don't you reserve your judgement until you've seen the first effort? In fact one of the stories is about a cheating-rip-off renter. I'm well aware that not all corporations are face-less monoliths hellbent on destroying small communities and crushing low-income families. None the less there are many who need a bit of a shakeup, SOE's and private. And unfortunately we can't all stand on your high sun-dried-tomatoes-and-pinot-gris-in-the-fridge horse, there are a lot of people out there you will never meet, who don't know their rights and are afraid to speak out.
