Here’s another blog article about government statistical misinformation – coming so soon after my own ‘Mathematics, mathematics, mathematics’ article, it is easy to see a theme developing here.
This article refers to the way information has been twisted by DWP minister Esther McVey and the government, to make the change from Disability Living Allowance to the Personal Independence Payment – and the damage that will do to many claimants who will no longer qualify for support – necessary.
The evidence seems clear. Any administration that has to distort the facts in order to win an argument should not be allowed to continue with its plan.
The article calls for like-minded people to sign an open letter to Ms McVey and the DWP. I urge you to do so.
