Channel 4 faced criticism today for its latest contribution to social debate, Friends-With-Benefits Street, a fly-on-the-wall documentary capturing the comings and goings among residents on Britain’s most promiscuous street.
Presenter and broadcaster Jeremy Vine has reportedly refused to vacate the BBC’s ‘virtual set’, days after election coverage had officially ended. The BBC confirmed the Panorama presenter has ‘gone rogue’.
‘I had reservations at first; I don’t know much about keeping the interest rate from dipping below inflation, but weirdly it doesn’t seem to matter. If someone asks me a question I just say ‘a fair deal for honest, hard-working Britons’ or ‘I have complete faith in Mr Osborne’ and they seem satisfied with that.’
