Lies, damn lies and DWP benefit cap claims

I wrote about this in May, then Johnny Void did an article in August, and now its SPeye’s turn to point out the glaring error in DWP benefit cap calculations. It’s a big, BIG lie, so most of the population won’t question it – and that’s how Iain Duncan Smith gets away with it.

    Mike, you are preaching to the converted. We know this government has no mathematical ability, unless of course it suits them. Remember the government mathematical skill employed when they adjusted child allowance? However, the government does have huge skills in telling lies and creating smokescreens to conceal errors and lies. Now we see the emergence of the Hitler , oops I meant Cameron youth. Join us or lose all.We will train you for the jobs which don’t exist and probably never will. We will provide education to enable us to train you for those absent jobs. Well done. Now you are 25. Highly trained well educated for the jobs which still don’t exist. In the meantime Cameron now ( having left politics) earns £500,000 p/a pays no uk tax because he’s found a way around the system, oh, his books earn another half million. Property rentals from property his wife bought during the recession and owned by offshore companies nett another few hundred grand. Sorry you got to 25 and have nothing, oh dear, never mind, carry on.

    Love Dave.
    P.S. can you return the uniform and armband.

    “I don’t want to leave anyone behind. The test of a good society is you look after the elderly, the frail, the vulnerable, the poorest in our society. And that test is even more important in difficult times, when difficult decisions have to be taken, than it is in better times.”
    David Cameron 2/5/2010 on the Andrew Marr Show

    The lies have a history.

    Just watched another Tory clown, surely Grant Shapps should get surgery to close his anus in order to give his mouth a chance. Another egotistical well fed witless idiot spouting the lying Tory line, had to restrained from throwing things at the T.V.

      Have to admit I was shouting at the telly a lot, too. What disappointed me most, though, was the fact that Yvette Cooper did not step forward to correct him when he – yet again – put forward the claim that Labour overspending caused the financial crisis. This has now been conclusively disproven, including by two independent university reports this year.
