Why are so many programmes about benefit cheats and not about bankers…

On BBC Three’s Free Speech on October 7th, a viewer asked ‘Why are there so many programmes about benefit cheats, when the ones who steal the most from the welfare state are the bankers and big corporations?’

The clip goes lasts for over 11 minutes so if you decide to watch all of it make yourself a hot drink first 🙂
