Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) boss Esther McVey has made her first Conservative Party conference speech since taking on that role. But far from it being a roaring success, one campaign group has said she’s either an “outright liar” or “utterly deluded”. Maybe it’s both?
The DWP: ‘fake news’ by whom…?

During McVey’s speech on Monday 1 October, which was more soundbites than substance, she made several claims about benefit spending.

First off, the work and pensions secretary accused people of peddling “fake news”

"if you were to believe everything you heard from the Labour Party or read on social media you’d think we somehow were letting down the most vulnerable in society."

Especially the disabled.

However, those who are saying we are cutting budgets are peddling fake news.

It’s worth noting that McVey used the wrong term – “the disabled”; her speech was intended to say the right term – ‘disabled people’. ‘The disabled’ is not correct. Unless you think disabled people are one, homogenised group who should all be treated the same and can’t speak for themselves.

Maybe if this government would read medical evidence from people`s GP and consultants and remove the private outsourced fraud officers from carrying out work capability assessments, things might improve. Until this happens, nobody is safe.

Mrs McVile’s speech needs a bit of an edit in order to show what she REALLY was saying;


During Esther McVile’s speech on Monday 1 October, which was more soundbites than substance, she made several claims about benefit spending.

Such as DWP, DSS, BBC, Daily Express, Daily Mail,
"if you were to believe everything you heard from the Conservative Party or read on social media you’d think we somehow Are letting down the most vulnerable in society."
Especially the disabled.
However, those who are saying we are cutting budgets are peddling fake news.
But We ARE Cutting Budgets Faster and Deeper then ever before.

Everyone give her a standing Cheer ?
