Paddy doesn't have a TV, internet connection, an I-Pad or I-Phone.  He takes exception to being described as a "caveman" by Minister Pat Rabbitte in relation to the new public service broadcasting charge.  Other callers tell Philip why they don't have television in their homes.

Louise has a 22-year-old daughter with moderate intellectual disabilities who has a place in Sunbeam House Services in Bray.  Louise tells Philip how upset she was that the daily bus service her daughter uses to get to Sunbeam House has been discontinued due to budget cuts. 

Wendy was on a family holiday for 2 weeks in France.  Within a few hours of arriving back in Ireland her motor home was broken into and their belongings stolen.
