At Last: A Headline On Which We Can All Agree!
THE SHOCKING truth of workshy Britain was laid bare today as figures revealed the number of households receiving benefits worth more than Â£15,000 a year has doubled under Labour. Welfare Reform Minister Jim Knight said 1.2 million households were given state handouts in excess of Â£15,000-a-year in 2007-08, compared with 600,000 a decade before. And households receiving more than Â£20,000-a-year trebled from 100,000 in 1997-98 to 300,000 ten years later.
