Parliament… is it much different to ‘the big benefits row’?

There is much controversy surrounding the trivial nature of such shows as Channel 5’s ‘The Big Benefits Row’ and ‘Benefits Street’. Many critics believe it makes a mockery of politics and detracts from the seriousness of such vital topics such as benefits in Britain.

But is it beneficial that politics is presented in an entertaining format? so that those who are not usually drawn to politics due to its ‘dull nature’, can gain a little insight into such subjects as benefits? and are the arguments seen in The Big Benefits Row much different to the disputes seen in the House of Parliament?
