Campaign update: We won! Channel 5 bosses have ditched their plans for a 'poverty porn' show in Stevenston. Thanks for everybody's support.
Channel 5 bosses have sent researchers to Stevenston to seek people to take part in their next ‘Poverty Porn’ programme showing life on benefits. These shows, like ’Benefits Street’ and ‘the Scheme’, take advantage of local communities and vulnerable people. Cllr Jim Montgomerie and I say these TV bosses aren’t welcome here and have already told Channel 5 that.
Will you join us in doing so?
Dear Channel 5,
Your ‘Poverty Porn’ isn't welcome in Stevenston. Please stay away from my community and my neighbours.
