Benefit Street: Channel 4

Post  Hinch on Thu Jan 09, 2014 4:58 am


Did anyone see this last night? Documentary about a street of real scrotes in Birmingham. Part of a series. Quite a few filmed committing crime. Subject to a lot of complaints. A bit like 'Shameless,' only this is real life.

It seems that no self respecting resident would be seen dead without a can of Tennant Super Strength in their hand. Streets choked in rubbish and at least three or four suites just flung out.

Half the street seem to be out shoplifting, while the other half buy the stuff off them. Depressing but strangely compelling. Future programmes look to become very interesting as the benefit cuts kick in.

It's life Jim, but not as we know it!
