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?

  7. I thought IDS and his minions were to be questioned in June with regards to their lies, Haven’t seen anything about it yet, does anyone know if this has already happened or are they conveniently forgetting about it?

  8. What an excellent idea! It’s quite a comlex read, what about a shorter one that could be sent as a press release and for people who’d like a shorter version, though I appreciate that’s more work for someone.

  9. Just been informed of a lady from Edinburgh, who suffers from severe emotional issues and has attempted suicide, who was asked by a HCP on a WCA ” would she attempt suicide within the next 2yrs!!!!!!!” it is on a par with a one armed gentleman who was asked “if he expected his arm to grow back in the next 2 yrs”

    I am looking into the Edinburgh one
