The Social Welfare Union site is running this Poll: Which National Newspaper is most at Fault for causing Rising Hatred toward Disabled People and Benefits Claimants? These results below were current at my time of posting.
Daily Mail - 47.83%
The Sun - 41.3%
Telegraph - 6.52%
Daily Express - 2.17%
Other - 2.17%
As I suspected, the Hate and the Sun are fairly close in their bid to rid the world of disabled people and benefits' claimants. What a pity they don't use their massive resources of money and bile to track down the real cheats among us, namely the wealthy million and billion-aires who rob the country of scores of billions of £££s every year.
Surely stories of how the rich and powerful spend their time and ill-gotten wealth would make for far more salacious reading than the 'single mother in receipt of housing benefit while living alone with her child and no husband' world exclusive regurgitated, ad nauseam . Wouldn't it be great to see pictures of tax guzzler Philip Green's wife luxuriating in Monaco at our cost.
Or journalists rediscovering the investigatory talents they've so cleverly covered up over the past few years. Wouldn't they feel the better for stretching their journalistic skills. You know, reporting the news; not taking press releases from the DWP and submitting them as copy.
