Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) have produced a report detailing the ongoing misuse of statistics and outright fibs which have been fed to the press by Iain Duncan Smith and the DWP.
The campaign group say: “At the end of this month, the Department for Work and Pensions will be releasing their Annual Report, and Iain Duncan Smith and his henchministers will no doubt be touring the TV studios to deliver more propaganda about worklessness and disability.
We’ve decided to celebrate the release of the DWP Annual Report by releasing a report of our own.
It is a report into how the DWP and DWP Ministers have made claims which are simply untrue. We’ve selected 35 claims and and found clear evidence that these claims have no basis in the facts.
So when you next see Iain Duncan Smith on the TV News, ask yourself, is he lying? or is he simply making it up out of thin air again?”
For a clear and comprehensive record of the endless stream of bullshit which has been pouring out of DWP Minister’s mouths ever since this Government weren’t elected visit (and share): http://www.scribd.com/doc/149776210/DPAC-Report-on-DWP-Abuse-of-Statistics-Final-22-June-2013
