there were fewer single parent families then than there are now and this was also the time, of course, when there was big tory rhetoric around single—parent families. around the idea of being on benefits, wasn�*t it? yeah. and the suggestion somehow that maybe you�*d got pregnant in order to get benefits. yeah. that peter lilley speech — you know, i remember all of that and it made me so angry that that kind ofjudgement was being made about our family when i knew how hard my mam was working. remind us of the speech, because there�*ll be plenty of people who forget. peter lilley was secretary of state for social security back then — a job title doesn�*t exist now. yeah. he talked in the conference speech about single parents on benefits and talked in very disparaging terms, about — as if somehow that people did this to get, you know, a council house. i mean, it was really offensive. he mimicked a song, didn�*t he? "i�*ve got a little list", he said, "of benefit offenders "who i�*ll soon be rooting out, who never would be missed. "never would be missed". "there�*s young ladies

uglier. >> it is an ugly time. i agree. you know, so much, kadia, of the plan is centered around this investigation-palooza. you had incoming -- representative james comer commenting on the gop's plans to launch these investigations under their new majority. let's take a listen. >> we are gonna investigate between 40 and 50 different things. we have the capacity, we will have 25 members on the committee. we are gonna have a staff of close to 70. so we have the ability to investigate a lot of things. >> i get, it katie, like, i get that they want to sell this to their hard core base. this isn't what they ran on in order to sort of peel off voters from democrats. what they ran on was inflations. they have no plan on inflation. they run on crime, they have a plan on crime. i have to believe that there are some voters who will get incredibly frustrated when they say, hey, we sent you to washington to deal with all of these things that you said were problems.
but it�*s also stayed with me because i don�*t think we should ever get to a point as a society where people have to depend on the charity and goodwill of others in order to get by. it should be a given. and this happens today and this is — this is what�*s facing so many families across britain at the moment. they don�*t have enough money in order to notjust afford the basics, but actually to give their children really enriching, happy, fulfilled childhoods. it should be a given that families can afford a coat for their kids. i want children to have much more in modern britain. it�*s an irony, isn�*t it, it�*s often the people who�*ve got the least then find themselves burgled? yeah. not the people with the with the most. there was a lot of crime, i think, in washington, tyne and wear at that time. there was. we lived near a railway line — a mothballed railway line at that point — and there wasjoyriding, so—called, was a big problem at that point, so you would frequently hear the sirens as the police came
we will see, and frankly we won't know for two years. but i just want to be optimistic and maybe that is unwarranted. but that is how i feel. >> i, mean they've to stat to this. it is more extreme for the republicans i think it was also deep desire in this country for accountability over what happened on january 6th. there was a desire for accountability for much of trump's presidency. i don't think david you are trying to say that it is apples to apples. but i do want to draw a clear distinction there, acadia. and i sort of wonder, from your vantage point, yes. the fact that you have kevin mccarthy in order to get 2 to 18 already making concessions life saying he is willing to pull democrats off of committees, that is not a sign that this is going to be a functional congress. is there anything that they can get done? >> that is gonna be what remains to be seen, isn't it. i mean, to david's point, yeah you are saying that you made a
it was often we were the only single—parent family and we were just as much a family as anybody else, and that�*s what really made me angry about it all. and my mam couldn�*t work when i was younger and that was in part because there was no access to childcare, that — which is, sadly, you know, becoming increasingly a problem and is a real priority for me because if we want to make sure that people can play their full contribution in society, then i think that�*s where government has a role to play in making that as easy as possible. now, where you weren�*t getting help on benefits, there were other people who had to help even when you were little to get you a coat. yeah, my — one of our neighbours put a note through the door with some money in order to buy me a winter coat. it had come up in conversation. he was a really kind... he was retired by this point, really kind, didn�*t have very much money himself, but knew that we were struggling, that my mam was struggling to afford to buy me a winter coat and put the money through the door, which was wonderfully kind and really generous and it�*s always stayed with me,
and chased the lads who abandoned the car at the railway line and — and ran along. and we, yeah, were burgled on a number of occasions. we reported it. my mam stood up to the people who were responsible for it, the people that live locally, and we got our windows put in more than once as a result. what, because you�*d made a stand? because we took a stand against it. because, you know, my mam wasn�*t prepared to tolerate our community experiencing that kind of terrible behaviour. it affected everyone, you know, there were many people who were just too frightened to do anything about it. my mam, being a pretty tough character, decided that she wasn�*t going to stand for it. what did that look like, you know, taking a stand? do you remember? was your mum literally standing up in front of teenage hoodlums and saying, you know, "stop it!" she was. and they came to our door to intimidate us. at least on one occasion, armed. on one occasion with a baseball bat in order to intimidate her into not — not reporting any of this to the police.
