MAKERS of the controversial Benefits Street documentary are planning a sequel in Southampton.

Love Productions has approached residents in Derby Road, St Mary’s, for the new show that will be called Immigration Street and will focus on the area’s diverse communities.

Harjap Singh, chairman of Sikh Council Hampshire and Southampton Gurdwara Council, said the organisations have raised concerns over the programme.

He said: "We are against it because it would be pretty bad for community relations.

"The Vaisakhi celebrations looks to bring communities together but it seems the programme makers could put certain sections of the community against each other.

"A few people I have spoken to have raised concerns and have asked to make sure this doesn't happen."

David Bane, secretary of the Southampton Council of Faiths, said the organisation was "cautious".

He said: "The council of faiths had a meeting last Tuesday and there's mixed feeling about it.

"We don't have control over what the programme comes out like. 

"The Southampton Council of Faiths is nearly 19 years old and we have worked very hard to link communities and keep the trust and peace.

"Southampton has a history of immigration. We have had people come to this city for years and I think in a way majority of people see it as a real added value to the community - we have around 47 languages spoken here.

"We need to be careful."

However Khalid Farooq, of the Derby Road-based Pakistan Welfare Association said it was an opportunity to show how multi-cultural Derby Road is.

He said: "I think it's good. It shows the multi-cultural environment of people living in Derby Road.

"They should show a positive aspect of the community.

"I think there needs to be more support and show how hard working people are here."

Cllr Stephen Barnes-Andrew, deputy leader of Southampton City Council and cabinet member for resources, represents the Bevois ward.

He said: "It is difficult because your whole experience of the programme is sensationalised from James Turner Street in Birmingham and it turned out the whole programme was stage managed.

"They have had meetings with council officers on one occasion and said they will try to do a balanced programme.

"My view is that on balance looking at previous production it will not be in the interests of people in Southampton as I fear they will be turning to portray a certain angle on the downside of immigration."

Cllr Satvir Kaur, Southampton City Council's cabinet member for communities, said: "If I am being completely honest I do have concerns about a potential programme called Immigration Street.

"We have one of the most diverse cities on the south coast. We have a variety of diverse communities in Southampton and community cohesion is something we should pride ourselves on.

"My concern is that it will not show that, and I am genuinely worried about vulnerable people in that area in Derby Road.

"I do not want them taken advantage of and portrayed as something they are not.

"As cabinet member of communities I am working closely with Alan Whitehead and the police about our fears of this show. We have some really strong partnerships in this city and together we want to voice our concerns.

"Some people could be taken advantage of as they will not realise how the final edit will portray them.

"I have worked in media and I appreciate that ultimately they want something that gets viewers and showing that we are a big happy family, is probably not going to be it."

Southampton Test MP Alan Whitehead, who represents the area, has spoken of his concern.

He said he was worried that the programme would follow a script rather than tell the truth and reflect the community accurately.

He said: “Some programmes can be a tremendous fillip and bonus in getting across to the public what the real issues are. I don’t think the company in this instance has a track record to do that.”

 

Daily Echo: Mr Whitehead has written to every home in Derby Road asking people what they think about the planned programme.

Love Productions, which makes programmes such as The Great British Sewing Bee and Mary Berry Cooks, has said it was not made a final decision on a location for its news series yet.

Benefits Street focused on the residents of James Turner Street in Winson Green, Birmingham, where it was reported that more than 90 per cent of residents lived on benefits.

Screened over five episodes starting in January, it was controversial with politicians and the police and provoking hundreds of complaints.

It made household names of residents such as White Dee, the self-styled "mother" of the street.

A Channel 4 spokesman said: "Love Production are researching a potential new series for Channel 4 at life in a community where diverse groups of people live alongside one another.

"The title and location are not yet confirmed and discussions are ongoing with local people.

"Benefits Street sparked an important debate about the welfare system.

"It was a fair and balanced observational documentary series and was a sympathetic, humane and objective portrayal of how people are coping with continuing austerity and cuts in benefits.

"Love Productions is an award-winning production company responsible for a wide range of programmes, including The Great British Bake Off."

It has potential to be a great platform to highlight the diversity in Southampton and encourage mutual understanding and respect of different cultures, lifestyles and problems residents face. BUT being a Channel 4 program its most likely going to be twisted into fulfilling an "entertaining" agenda that would most likely damage community relations.

Presumably you're referring to our Royal Family - the most famous family in the world who bring billions of pounds to the country through tourism, are wonderful representatives for our country and I'm proud to have our 88 year old Queen as our figurehead. The Queen has devoted her life to our country and works almost every day of the year.

Not quite the same as unskilled immigrants motivated to come to the UK purely because of our benefit system, planning a life funded by taxpayers and giving absolutely nothing back.

I am the descendant of Irish and Scottish immigrants who moved to our fair city in the early part of last century. I also live in the area where Channel 4 will be filming. I doubt, however, if they will be interested in talking to me as I probably don't fit the 'celebrity' cap.

Derby Road provides a rich mixture of cultures, tastes, religions and languages and this is the area's strength. The characters I meet in (or outside) the Banga store and, especially on match days or ska gigs, at the Old Farmhouse are testament to how well people here get on with each other despite all of life's hardships.

It would be nice if the Channel 4 documentary could focus on this.

Southampton, as a Port, has always had this diversity in many shapes and sizes. My guess would be that most Southampton residents are descendents of immigrants (incl from Scotland, Wales and Ireland).

Seems to me a case of "thou protests too much"!

What have Southampton to be ashamed of? Because that's the message being given out by the likes of Whitehead - we are ashamed!

Let the program be made. Let's see what life can be for some people in Southampton.

It's all very well cheering your local football team - what about cheering for Southampton?!

Southampton, like many other places has a really good multicultural base and all these programmes do is try to split communities.

Forget doing any programme. Southampton is alive and well and multicultural by pride. Why give the few with poor views a platform to spout them on? Tell the programme makers to go away.

We aren't chavs, don't own staffies, get drunk in the park or make nuisances of ourselves. Our parents didn't have two pennies to rub together sometimes but one thing they did instill in us was self-worth and a good work ethic. But hey focus on the useless and idle why don't you? LadySam

I get the point you're trying to make, but that's not actually the case. See: Crown Estate.
The cost of the royal family is 3 times as much to what is earned by the royal family
I, too, can simply make up numbers.
Not made up but real facts, just security for the Queen alone cost Tax payers in the region of £500 million a year, the Cost of keeping Buckingham Palace a year is over £700 million.
The Royal family income in one year is £1.5 million a year plus on top of that what tourism brings in which is about £18 million a year, there total reserves is about £14 million in which £11.8m of which comes from property, plant and equipment.
In 2012 the Queen cost us over £25 million, this don't take into account the cost of the up keep and running of the Royal Family residences, like Balmoral, Buckingham and other places.
Profits from the Royal Estate aka Crown Estates in 2012 came to £200 million.
In 2012 the Government pass "Sovereign Grant" which entitles the sitting monarch to the rough equivalent of 15% of revenues from The Crown Estate, The Crown Technically are in debt to the Government and have been since King George III, that debt just gets bigger and there is no interest to be paid on the debt.

Until you provide sources for any of this, I'm just going to assume you made it up.

Amusingly, though, you've stated the cost of the Queen in 2012 was £25m, but the income from the Crown Estates was almost ten times this. Do you understand what any of these words mean?

I get the point you're trying to make, but that's not actually the case. See: Crown Estate.
The cost of the royal family is 3 times as much to what is earned by the royal family
I, too, can simply make up numbers.
Not made up but real facts, just security for the Queen alone cost Tax payers in the region of £500 million a year, the Cost of keeping Buckingham Palace a year is over £700 million.
The Royal family income in one year is £1.5 million a year plus on top of that what tourism brings in which is about £18 million a year, there total reserves is about £14 million in which £11.8m of which comes from property, plant and equipment.
In 2012 the Queen cost us over £25 million, this don't take into account the cost of the up keep and running of the Royal Family residences, like Balmoral, Buckingham and other places.
Profits from the Royal Estate aka Crown Estates in 2012 came to £200 million.
In 2012 the Government pass "Sovereign Grant" which entitles the sitting monarch to the rough equivalent of 15% of revenues from The Crown Estate, The Crown Technically are in debt to the Government and have been since King George III, that debt just gets bigger and there is no interest to be paid on the debt.
Until you provide sources for any of this, I'm just going to assume you made it up.

Amusingly, though, you've stated the cost of the Queen in 2012 was £25m, but the income from the Crown Estates was almost ten times this. Do you understand what any of these words mean?
I do under stand but you don't, the Crown is only Beneficiary of the Crown Estates, and your not taking into account like the £500 million in tax payers money just to run the Security for the Queen, it sorts of wipes out the total income from the Crown Estates and put them in debt right away by £300 million which is a public tax burden that as to be paid.
No your picking and choosing bits and pieces, Oh by the way you can not get all the facts and figures from place, to find out the real in and outs of this then you need to listen to the yearly Q and A time by the house of Commons and Lords Select Committee that takes place every June/July in Parliament bench common room in the East Wing
Southy, this debate has **** all to do with the Queen. Take your illiterate pedantry somewhere else.

It's all very well cheering your local football team - what about cheering for Southampton?!
Where did you get the idea that Dr. Alan Whitehead is ashamed of Southampton? Your unfair mud is not likely to stick on our democratically elected Member of Parliament.

Fact, Alan is very proud of representing Southampton Test in Parliament.

Fact, before entering Parliament he spent many years as Leader of the Council ( In my view the best Leader of Council in recent times). He served that office because he cares about Southampton.

Fact, when young lad out of all the great universities in UK Alan Whitehead opted for Southampton and after gaining his doctorate made the city his permanent home.

Surely that should be sufficient proof that Alan is not ashamed of Southampton but is proud of the City and Saints, whom he supports.

Whitehead has only asked the views of his constituents regarding what they think, so that if situation arises as responsible MP he can be prepared to represent them with best of his ability.

I may not be keen on NuLabour but when the MP is doing a good job he deserves apperciation, not politically biased mud.

Is the Birmingham Schools "Trojan Horse" "diverse" or is it "multicultural"? Is there any reason we should continue to use these 2 absurd words, coined by someone of the same mindset as Kim Philby?

Where did you get the idea that Dr. Alan Whitehead is ashamed of Southampton? Your unfair mud is not likely to stick on our democratically elected Member of Parliament.

Fact, Alan is very proud of representing Southampton Test in Parliament.

Fact, before entering Parliament he spent many years as Leader of the Council ( In my view the best Leader of Council in recent times). He served that office because he cares about Southampton.

Fact, when young lad out of all the great universities in UK Alan Whitehead opted for Southampton and after gaining his doctorate made the city his permanent home.

Surely that should be sufficient proof that Alan is not ashamed of Southampton but is proud of the City and Saints, whom he supports.

Whitehead has only asked the views of his constituents regarding what they think, so that if situation arises as responsible MP he can be prepared to represent them with best of his ability.

I may not be keen on NuLabour but when the MP is doing a good job he deserves apperciation, not politically biased mud.

Fact when student in University of Southampton Alan was active member of the Liberal Party.

What have Southampton to be ashamed of? Because that's the message being given out by the likes of Whitehead - we are ashamed!

Let the program be made. Let's see what life can be for some people in Southampton.

It's all very well cheering your local football team - what about cheering for Southampton?!
Where did you get the idea that Dr. Alan Whitehead is ashamed of Southampton? Your unfair mud is not likely to stick on our democratically elected Member of Parliament.

Fact, Alan is very proud of representing Southampton Test in Parliament.

Fact, before entering Parliament he spent many years as Leader of the Council ( In my view the best Leader of Council in recent times). He served that office because he cares about Southampton.

Fact, when young lad out of all the great universities in UK Alan Whitehead opted for Southampton and after gaining his doctorate made the city his permanent home.

Surely that should be sufficient proof that Alan is not ashamed of Southampton but is proud of the City and Saints, whom he supports.

Whitehead has only asked the views of his constituents regarding what they think, so that if situation arises as responsible MP he can be prepared to represent them with best of his ability.

I may not be keen on NuLabour but when the MP is doing a good job he deserves apperciation, not politically biased mud.

Call me a cynic but!

"Fact, before entering Parliament he spent many years as Leader of the Council"
As a stepping stone to greater things!

"He served that office because he cares about Southampton"
He served because it was route one to being an MP!

"Fact, when young lad out of all the great universities in UK Alan Whitehead opted for Southampton and after gaining his doctorate made the city his permanent home. "
He studied Politics, was immersed in Labour Politics and having realised that Southampton was a hotbed of Unionism/Labour, he saw an opportunity!

"Surely that should be sufficient proof that Alan is not ashamed of Southampton but is proud of the City and Saints, whom he supports"
No!

"Whitehead has only asked the views of his constituents regarding what they think, so that if situation arises as responsible MP he can be prepared to represent them with best of his ability."

Uhm!

"I may not be keen on NuLabour but when the MP is doing a good job he deserves apperciation, not politically biased mud"
Where was the mud?! Admittedly saying "the likes of Whitehead" was slightly incorrect but even you know it wasn't aimed at just him! I could see a bandwagon and he and others have jumped on it!
At no time did I make it political! You did!

However, as you brought the subject up, as an MP I think he has not been very good for Southampton - just my opinion.

I'm always conscience of your political background and your excellent commend of the English language and I am always careful in my replies to you. You are a fan of Alan Whitehead and that's to be commended. However, you were wrong to see a political motive in my comment.
George4th, sorry to say but you have got your facts wrong, especially about Alan Whitehead in his younger days having worked out ambitious plan of coming to Southampton Uni because city was Labour and Trade Union stronghold, which will suit him in the long run.

Fact when student in University of Southampton Alan was active member of the Liberal Party.

My apology for puncturing your balloon full of fiction.
Surely not MORE wrong facts .......

Ninety three comments on this topic and not one from a resident of Derby Road.

I suppose none of the alleged fourty seven languages spoken there include English. Either that or none of the residents have internet access or read the Echo.

You would have thought at least one resident would have been on here defending the area they chose to call home.
Or perhaps they don't think of Southampton as their home.

I agree with Rob. If the programme were being made by the residents of Derby Road I think it could be an amazing platform to show how much the area has progressed in the last 30 years. But having watched Benefits Street, I think that the programme makers will be waiting and watching for anything that appeases the 'Daily Mail' brigade and makes working class and people on benefits looks like scum, whether they are or not.

The correct quote is: -
“It’s pretty ironic that the so-called ‘least advanced’ people are the ones taking the lead in trying to protect all of us, while the richest and most powerful among us are the ones who are trying to drive the society to destruction.”

What have Southampton to be ashamed of? Because that's the message being given out by the likes of Whitehead - we are ashamed!

Let the program be made. Let's see what life can be for some people in Southampton.

It's all very well cheering your local football team - what about cheering for Southampton?!
Where did you get the idea that Dr. Alan Whitehead is ashamed of Southampton? Your unfair mud is not likely to stick on our democratically elected Member of Parliament.

Fact, Alan is very proud of representing Southampton Test in Parliament.

Fact, before entering Parliament he spent many years as Leader of the Council ( In my view the best Leader of Council in recent times). He served that office because he cares about Southampton.

Fact, when young lad out of all the great universities in UK Alan Whitehead opted for Southampton and after gaining his doctorate made the city his permanent home.

Surely that should be sufficient proof that Alan is not ashamed of Southampton but is proud of the City and Saints, whom he supports.

Whitehead has only asked the views of his constituents regarding what they think, so that if situation arises as responsible MP he can be prepared to represent them with best of his ability.

I may not be keen on NuLabour but when the MP is doing a good job he deserves apperciation, not politically biased mud.
Paramjit

Call me a cynic but!

"Fact, before entering Parliament he spent many years as Leader of the Council"
As a stepping stone to greater things!

"He served that office because he cares about Southampton"
He served because it was route one to being an MP!
.
"Fact, when young lad out of all the great universities in UK Alan Whitehead opted for Southampton and after gaining his doctorate made the city his permanent home. "
He studied Politics, was immersed in Labour Politics and having realised that Southampton was a hotbed of Unionism/Labour, he saw an opportunity!

"Surely that should be sufficient proof that Alan is not ashamed of Southampton but is proud of the City and Saints, whom he supports"
No!

"Whitehead has only asked the views of his constituents regarding what they think, so that if situation arises as responsible MP he can be prepared to represent them with best of his ability."

Uhm!

"I may not be keen on NuLabour but when the MP is doing a good job he deserves apperciation, not politically biased mud"
Where was the mud?! Admittedly saying "the likes of Whitehead" was slightly incorrect but even you know it wasn't aimed at just him! I could see a bandwagon and he and others have jumped on it!
At no time did I make it political! You did!

However, as you brought the subject up, as an MP I think he has not been very good for Southampton - just my opinion.

I'm always conscience of your political background and your excellent commend of the English language and I am always careful in my replies to you. You are a fan of Alan Whitehead and that's to be commended. However, you were wrong to see a political motive in my comment.
George4th, sorry to say but you have got your facts wrong, especially about Alan Whitehead in his younger days having worked out ambitious plan of coming to Southampton Uni because city was Labour and Trade Union stronghold, which will suit him in the long run.

Fact when student in University of Southampton Alan was active member of the Liberal Party.

My apology for puncturing your balloon full of fiction.
Shows what kind of opportunist he was then!!!

With 4161 Council seats up for election in May which is only a portion of the total, I don't think your four seats and the BNPs two seats represent any real threat of change. Whatever claims you make up about the coming change based on your four seats will be just as valid and irrelevant as those made up by the BNP. Only a handful of the disaffected and the retarded ever vote for extremism of any sort as poor old Daz (or was it Omo) found out last year when sixty two of his friends helped him out so that he could give the Wessex Regionalist a good drubbing in Eastleigh.

Yes but unlike many of the so called immigrants here now hard working people of this country will have paid into the system over their working lives so if they have to claim benefits at some point we shouldnt begrudge them.
Asylum is the nearest safe country not travel thousands of miles for a free handout.

But the welfare system is a Ponzi Scheme, especially the OAP. There is no "pool" of welfare. Thus if you are right, and you may quite possibly be, there will be nothing to receive. That would always have been the case but the decision of the Attlee government to have an unfunded State pension and Brown to damage funded provision irreparably by the removal of the "untaxed in taxed out" principle in pensions have been, shall we say, politely, somewhat regrettable?

Chomsky = "new left" What's "new" about the left?. Same old tired rubbish. Same old authoritarian cant. TUSC- Trade Union and Soviet Communism. What is "new" about that?
Our local far extreme right winger still learning, now let me correct you, apart from the TUSC as nothing in common with Right Wing Communism, Socialism is not authoritarian it is very democratic, its was because of left wing thinking people you and others are allowed to vote, if right wing had it's way you would not be allowed to vote at the moment the right wing are trying to put people off from voting and its working, they know the more people vote the less of a strangle hold they will have as they will not be in power so much. oh by the way Chomsky is not Left wing nor is he Right wing he is Center ground
And Southy, as you well know, left wing and right wing are the same. Mussolini was a communist before he was a fascist; Hitler's Party was the National Socialist Party, Socialism is not democratic because its basic tenet is that the State should determine what resources the individual shall have and enforces that by State violence, prisons for those deemed not to have paid their (as the sad apology for a Conservative) Cameron says "fair share" of tax. I could go on but again, as you well know socialism in any manifestation cannot be democratic and cannot be equated with Christianity, another piece of black propaganda by , most recently people like Blair, for Christianity concerns free will and socialism abhors free will.

I work for the NHS and 3 members of my family are police officers in this city, we have seen first hand the detrimental affect too many immigrants claiming benefits have had on our systems and resources. If you come to this country it should be to find work and pay into our system if you want to reap the benefits from it. Like it was previously mentioned there are too many 'asylum seekers' that have crossed lots borders to reach this country, these people are not genuine asylum seekers, they have heard about the easy benefit system and are desperate to get here and take advantage of it otherwise they would have stayed in the first safe country they came to. You only have to walk through the parks in the city centre during the day and you can see many people from all nationalities that have claimed benefit money but have nothing better to spend it on than alcohol and lay in the park all day. I am expecting comments from people saying how wrong and bigotted I am but I do not think it is acceptable to bring this country to its knees by giving out free hand outs to everyone that turns up here. This does not make me racist, I am just a normal hard working individual and find it very sad that my grandparents fought in the war to protect this country and we have now opened the doors and let everyone in regardless!

I agree whole heartedly
Asylum is the first safe country not halfway across the world for a easy ticket to benefit St. Thats why the ports in France are full of illegal immigrants desperate to come here.

If a person enters my country surreptitiously and without the consent that I would have to enter their country, s/he is NOT an "asylum seeker", s/he is, and always has been, an illegal immigrant. "Asylum seeker" is a word made up by the extreme left who have a long tradition of perverting our language in similar ways. True asylum seekers, such as the pre-war kinder transport, came without secrecy and with the full knowledge and I believe, full consent of our people.

Another entertaining post from the mouthpiece of the fastest growing political party (self proclaimed) that has never got within sniffing distance of electoral victory in any area outside of the empty space between poor old Southy's ears.
4 by-elections won so far, not bad for a party that only just started and don't have the funds like Greens, UKIP, Torys Lib/Dems, Labour do from big organisations, The TUSC relys on the public in there donation to be able to run its the only party that is made up from ordinary people off the streets
With 4161 Council seats up for election in May which is only a portion of the total, I don't think your four seats and the BNPs two seats represent any real threat of change. Whatever claims you make up about the coming change based on your four seats will be just as valid and irrelevant as those made up by the BNP. Only a handful of the disaffected and the retarded ever vote for extremism of any sort as poor old Daz (or was it Omo) found out last year when sixty two of his friends helped him out so that he could give the Wessex Regionalist a good drubbing in Eastleigh.
I don't even believe his 4 by-election victories claim.
Bet he can't name where they all were.

There is cr@p all other the streets, old fridges & wahsing machines, push chairs & every other house is turned in to a bloody mosque or welfare centre.
Hopefully the programme will show the whole place down there for the uncivilised dump that it has been allowed to become.

I get the point you're trying to make, but that's not actually the case. See: Crown Estate.
The cost of the royal family is 3 times as much to what is earned by the royal family
Hardly...... However, do you think getting rid of it would save money...... The cost of having a President as head of state in most country is double the cost.
