Wow. Haven't been paying much attention to the news recently. But this whole picturegate thing has certainly exploded hasn't it?
the Fantasy of Being Thin is not just about becoming small enough to be perceived as more acceptable. It is about becoming an entirely different person ; one with far more courage, confidence, and luck than the fat you has.
In this country of the cute hoor, misleading the DÃ¡il or Seanad is considered little more than a minor stroke

Evening starts rather earlier in the day in Ireland than it does in British English. Any time after midday is likely to be described as the “evening”, whereas in Britain the evening does not start until about 1700 hrs
I said the honourable member was a liar it is true and I am sorry for it. The honourable member may place the punctuation where he pleases.

There are so many problems with what the Daily Mail have done here but I’m going to list them as succinctly as I can.
1) You clearly misunderstand the phrase ‘No questions asked’ considering your reporter was interviewed by a member of staff in great detail about their situation. This included questions about how much JSA was being received. That is not no questions asked. An unemployed person no longer receives a benefits book and shouldn’t have to carry their letter a around with them everywhere. Or would you like them to have that badge of shame?
2) You sent a reporter to lie to a government employee. You have committed a crime in order to further ridicule services put in place to help those in need. You also named the worker. As someone who has bent the system once or twice to help a fellow human being, you have probably put her job in jeopardy. I guess you’d like her to join the masses of ‘benefits scroungers’ you love to demonise?
3) You will now make it necessary for stricter measures to be put in place in terms of ID for people who can’t afford food. A passport renewal costs £80. Do you really not see the problem here? Or they may not be able to print a bank statement? Or find their benefits letter?
4) You went and redeemed a food voucher that could have helped someone WHO ACTUALLY NEEDS IT. You took food from a food bank that you did not need. Someone who does need it will now miss out and that is something which is directly your fault.
This whole piece is sickening and the ‘journalists’ involved should be ashamed.
