Over the past few years, we have seen TV broadcasters such as Channel 4, BBC, ITV and Channel 5 use shows that prey of the working class and the vulnerable and label it as "Reality TV"

In 2017, Shakir Ali and Shahida Aslam awoken to a knock on the door from a bailiff, this in its self is a horrible situation to be placed in as your child is still sleeping, but he was not alone, he was accompanied by a camera crew who recorded the families home including the child's bedroom and proceeded to air it to 9.6 Million viewers. This then led to the child being bullied in school.

Now more than ever we need a law in place that protects the most vulnerable of our society from having their privacy invaded for profit and for the entertainment of the rest of the country, shows such as "Can't pay we'll take it away" and "Benefits street" should not be profiting from the Inequality that we face.

These shows will continue to be aired until we are faced with a situation where someone is to take their own life, and then as a society, we will come together to start a petition and then praise the government for banning these shows, but how about we raise the point of banning these shows before the Broadcasters have blood on their hands?

In a report from the Samaritans in 2017 they stated that suicide rates are three times higher in the most deprived neighborhoods compared to the most affluent, and admissions to hospital after self-harm are two times higher, we have had this information for many years now but shows are still being given the go-ahead, people answering the front door to not only a bailiff but a full camera crew to capture the "Entertainment" as they remove processions from the individual's house is disgusting.
