Stealing Pennies from the Eyes of the Dead!
14 October 2020 | by brian-85466See all my reviews

Loved this series, hard to believe nothing in politics has really changed since it aired, as my title says, and is a line spoken by Bill Brand, the tories are still taking the pennies from the dead of this country, not just the clinically deceased!
