Utterly despicable exploitation of a kind, close-knit community. No area deserves "poverty safari" treatment, but particularly cruel of @MichelleMone to use East End roots to pick on Bridgeton, which has seen change led by local people, supported @clydegateway. @bridgeton_cc.
...I have so much respect for my background, home&the people of Glasgow especially the East End which you’ll be able to see very soon.Another SNP moron opening their mouth again without knowing the facts&trying to cause trouble Read more at: www.scotsman.com...

Aye just like the yin about the gypsys
and benefits street, or the scheme , or any other show depicting the lower class
this is the same as that #in arse piece paris hilton , living with commoners
in her tv show , only to show herself up as a dolt without a smote of intelligence or common sense other than what is in fashion wise.
Please tell me how taking the daughter of a rich person and putting her next to the polar opposite is respectful
its a eye opener for better offs to laugh at and make themselves feel better about themselves !
"least we dont live like those rats in Bridgeton in manky auld Scotland"
If you want to raise awareness fine, scrap the #in show and use all the money to give to the needy in Bridgeton!
thats helping , not making a tv show which will only serve to mock the poor so rich people can expand their wealth and port folio!
^^^^**depicting the lower class**^^^^

Im sure they would see it differently , in my opinion everyone is responsible for their own lives no matter what anyone else does to you , its up to you how you handle your life with regards to outside actions of others and influences etc.
however not everyone can think with reason as to the solution to their problems and in most cases will resort to crime or substance abuse to cope with the increasing anxiety , depression , and fear of failure.
However if humans are to rely on government for support , then we cant not blame them in part for removing our lifeblood and that is industry to support an ever growing community of people.
Say what ye like about Scotland being the land of milk and honey its definitely not the land of milk and honey as is evidenced by shows like the one you see ! , but to be fair it was the testing ground for Thatcherism
and the results are still in full effect today , and not only that being compounded by a new generation of Conservative wanks who think their policies are the solution to their wealth.

Scots will still whine like it is the fault of London though.
They can't help themselves
Born on 8 October 1971, Michelle Allan grew up in Glasgow's East End. Mone is an only child after losing her younger brother to spina bifida. She went on to marry Michael Mone aged 19; 20 years later they divorced after having three children.
Mone strived to return to employment and obtained a marketing job with the Labatt brewing company. Within two years she had risen to become its head of marketing in Scotland.She was made redundant by Labatt, prompting her to set up her own business. She has since admitted that she exaggerated qualifications on her CV in order to get the job.
While wearing a very uncomfortable cleavage enhancing bra at a dinner dance, Mone realised she could improve the design. Her stated aims were to create a bra that was both more comfortable and better looking, whilst enhancing more cleavage. Mone had read about a new silicone product while on holiday in Florida, and approached the company to obtain its European licence to produce bras.
Bannatyne was born in Dalmuir west of Glasgow. As a child Duncan lived in one room with his parents and siblings in a large house shared with six other families. He attended Dalmuir Primary School where he displayed a talent for arithmetic and won a place at Clydebank High School after passing the Eleven plus exam. Most pupils owned a bicycle so he resolved to earn the money to buy one for himself.
The local newsagent was not interested in employing him so she challenged him to find 100 new customers in return for a paper round. He called her bluff by returning with 100 names, but later reflected that it would have been more entrepreneurial to have sold the list. He only enjoyed PE and woodwork at the High School and left at 15 without any qualifications.
Bannatyne spent his twenties moving from one job to another. Upon his return to Clydebank he trained as an agricultural vehicle fitter and then travelled around the country repairing tractors. He lived on the island of Jersey for four years from 1974 where he gained an HGV licence and earned a living through several jobs including deckchair attendant, ice cream seller and hospital porter. He also surfed, partied and met his first wife on the island. With Jersey's difficult business climate for outsiders, at age 29, Bannatyne and his wife moved to Stockton-on-Tees in North East England. He has stated that he was poor and did not have a bank account until the age of 30.
