If anyone does watch , what was the underlying theme ?

Fair cop / plight / sympathy ... ?

" I didn't know ! " ... doesn't cut much ice with me.

Would be interesting to see what the media make of it.

My sympathy with carers. If DWP had continued their annual checks multiple year overpayments (it seems be this resulting in posecutions) would not have arisen. Note that the two MP's take this view too.
