To aid the TUTS and particularly any new TV Smith fans I have copied your Mayday question and answer into the TV Questions section.

GOLD AWARD

Of course we all know that Expensive Being Poor was the number 1 TV Smith fans favourite song in the TUTS chart in 2001. Is it still the people's choice only time will tell :D

TV's song is on the spot, as usual, even years later...

In 1999, T.V Smith, founder of the pioneering punk band The Adverts, sang "And I pay more for my food 'cause the supermarket's too far... It's expensive being poor because everything costs more." He had a point.

In America there's a name for the collection of inconveniences and expense associated with being poor. They call it the poverty tax. It's all about lack of access to the best deals and being forced into spending more through lack of choice.
