Threats of death and violence after Channel 4 programme Benefits Street
Posted January 7, 2014on:
I didn’t watch the programme as I do not watch tv, or listen to the radio because of things like this.
From what I have read I believe that Channel 4 are inciting hatred and violence towards benefit claimants who do NOT deserve this. They have portrayed an extremely tiny minority (6 people with families?) but worded it as though this is what benefit claimants are like on the whole! How dare they.
Channel 4 knew exactly what they were doing and have classed all benefit claimants with as a majority and not a minority!
I believe that everyone should complain to Channel 4, to the Ombudsman or whoever it is that oversees programmes like this. I also believe that this should be taken to court as blatant discrimination against a huge part of the population!
