It is hard to believe that in so-called
are people living without proper access to the basics that most of us take for
granted, such as The Jeremy Kyle Show, Inspector George Gently and Alan Carr:
Chatty Man. It is almost beyond comprehension that people just around the
corner from where we live are experiencing a bit of fuzziness occasionally as
they watch The World’s Tallest Skyscraper or How Clean is Your House USA. But this
is reality for some people – and it is all the fault of the Olympics. Great Britain
Two like-minded gentlemen enjoy the Olympics. It was invented by the Greeks, you know
Before construction work began on the Olympic site in 2008 residents of Avenue Road Estate enjoyed Diagnosis Murder and Extreme Fishing with Robson Fucking Green in complete clarity, but when the sporting venues began to go up the televisual misery began for people like mother and daughter combo Sue and Vicky Jewel. The family Jewel, however, refuse to take their plight lying down, having first complained to Ascham Homes, the corrupt, money wasting den of incompetence that ‘manages’ social housing in Waltham Forest, and which has been charging residents for an analogue aerial that hasn’t worked for ten years. When their complaints bore no fruit the Jewels decided to stand in front of a local press photographer with expressions of dissatisfaction etched firmly on their faces.
|Telly. We want Telly|
A sad, sad story indeed. Even as I write, the Jewels and their neighbours are probably watching Midsummer Murders with shadows flickering across the screen. And eating crisps. The last desperate, resonating words in this shocking case must go to Sue Jewel herself:
“It's being very harsh because people can't watch TV properly. It comes down to damaging their quality of life."
There but for the grace of God.
