Famous, Rich and Homeless

June 01 2009
Is the BBC being a little hypocritical? Dear Editor, I found it quite ironic that Famous, Rich and Homeless was shown on the BBC. I spent seven months living rough on London's streets, often at All Souls' Church in Portland Place. Having crashed there for several months, rough sleeping with the full knowledge and permission of the church authorities, I was woken one night and "moved on" by a couple of Westminster police officers. When I enquired about the incident at the church reception the following morning, I was was informed by a staffer that the alleged complaint had not been lodged by the church authorities but by BBC security staff at Broadcasting House, directly across the road, no doubt because they were irritated by having to constantly step over cardboard boxes whilst filing fearless, hard-hitting documentaries about the plight of London's homeless.
