Jeremy Vine viewers rip into 'out of touch' debate on cost of living crisis – raging show is 'too sad to watch' | The Sun

JEREMY Vine viewers have ripped into an 'out of touch' debate on the cost of living crisis – raging the show is 'too sad to watch'.

The Channel 5 programme always discussing the pressing issues facing society, and at the forefront of everyone's minds is the hike in food and energy prices.

With small businesses struggling and families fearing they won't be able to heat their homes over winter or afford food, Jeremy and his panellists discussed what was going on and what could be done.

However, some watching at home felt like the tone of the debate was wrong, with one sharing a picture of a cartoon dog sitting in among a fire with the words 'This is fine' above him and tweeted: "#TsunamiOfPoverty #JeremyVine."

Another added: "Positive thinking will not heat a single household. #jeremyvine."

A third tweeted: "I can't watch this anymore. It's too sad. Something's got to be done about the #CostOfLivingCrisis #jeremyvine #jeremyvineon5."
