Picturing the reaility of Tories’ benefit freeze

They say a picture is worth a thousand words – so rather than writing about today’s Benefit Uprating Bill, I thought I would post two images which pretty much say everything that needs saying on the issue:

  • most people on benefits are in work, not feckless, idle or fraudulent
  • when the Tories say “we’re all in it together”, they either dissemble or fail to comprehend the real impact of their policies.

(Of course, I can’t claim credit for either – the Labour Party tweeted the first image; former foreign secretary David Miliband tweeted the second (a 1929 election poster), following his superb speech in the Commons debate today).
