Wouldnt they be entitled to have some rent paid?

It's alright now because what'shisface - Tina's boss? - is letting them live in his flat RENT FREE.

I wish I lived on the Street.

Well they may do bit doubt it would cover all of it. Also there is only one area in Manchester and that is Weatherfield with its one street. That is why they are homeless smile

Isn't their financial problems down to

I dont think she works full time hours and he got sacked. I wouldve thought they would get something.

I hope Lloyd is going to have a happy outcome.

Tina also said that among the things they had to pay for was Tommy's work's van.

It was an accident, so would the insurance not cover this?

I wish I lived on the street too, there's a partner for everyone.

That young woman's Lloyd's daughter I'll bet. It's not real.

I think benefits would get in the way of their storylines much in the same way that actually purchasing a washing machine would get in the way of a good Launderette confrontation in the East End of London.

Tommy wasnt insured as he was using the van to go to his other job tut tut. That girl is deffo Lloyds daughter isn't she?

Who looks after little Hope whilst Fizz is at work, come to think of it. How much is child care full-time in the street?

Childcare is nothing as there is always someone friendly like Marcus the midwife on standby who incidentally is never at the hospital!

Yes, Hope. Where is Hope?

And what happened to Fizz going back to prison? I thought she was just out on probation. confused

Who was the scuzzbucket that Anna was married to? I think he was the only geezer on soapland to claim benefits. Y'know who I mean Gary's dad. Amazing how T & T always scrapped for cash but Tina's eyebrows always perfect.
Eyebrow tidy could cost £15 a time. If she were that strapped for cash she'd have bushy brows.
Tommy should be entitled to sickness benefit?
