'It's not safe, the world is not a safe place. Have some more chicken.'

A pensioner has his council house redecorated by two self-employed chancers. But there are worse crimes than benefit fraud. A richly comic study of politics and wall-papering.

This is disconcerting, constantly entertaining drama, full of good jokes, edgy dialogue and dramatic surprises. - The Daily Telegraph
