Human nature, regardless of time, income, circumstance, is a given. Neither worse nor better then. Force people to live in poverty and some of them will behave badly.
Allow others to benefit through birth, from the best life can offer and the sense of entitlement can cause them to behave even worse

A nice informative read and insight into victorian London. All this relayed via stories from first hand accounts from the era.

An interesting insight into the conditions of the poor - looking at lodging houses, workhouses, businesses & the like through reports (I think it was for a newspaper) of the time. Well written. Very enjoyable
