Not only that, Richard, but the government targets suspected benefit fraud with legendary vehemence yet is notoriously soft on tax evasion. In spite of that, benefit fraud, last count, amounted to just over a billion, about 0.7% of the overall bill. Contrast that with what could be around 150 billion in unpaid tax. Billyboy has clearly fallen for the number one Tory softening-up tactic of demonising all benefits claimants in the eyes of the public before kicking some of the most vulnerable people in society in the bollocks.
