Guardian Out By 5,100%

The Guardian quietly issued a sheepish correction last week, admitting they got their benefit cap figures out by a mere 5,100%. The original article alleged that low income families would lose out by £210 every single week from the government’s freezing of working-age benefits in cash terms until 2020. In reality the number is £210-a-year, not the inflated £10,920-a-year that they initially calculated. Slow clap.

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
