Daily Mail wins misleading headline of the week award (again)

We’ve seen this week how mendacious the government is in the way it refers to the cost of ‘welfare’ (it is no accident that this has become the preferred term rather than ‘benefits’) and in the way it treats benefit claimants.
Now we see how the government’s media allies routinely do the same to skew debate and perception and to mislead the credulous many.

  1. I agree.
    Social Security ‘Benefits’ this language ‘which is as it should be used’ does not have the ‘double speak’ and derisive connotations (attributed by the current government), that the current descriptor ‘Welfare’ has. We all pay in to the Social security budget, one way or another, which was designed to Benefit us all when we need it. It was designed as a form of ‘Social Insurance’. Not something to be beaten with.
