    Yes I agree it should go further – im wondering if its been changed in the guardians version! gonna have a shufty!

    yes the Guardian one has been changed to with a 2 line bit at the end saying its been amended as the term benefit cheats was inaccurate.

    Dont know if this article has changed from when I posted on it – but the article I posted on had BT saying that the change in headline terms had not gone far enough ie saying welfare was a slight improvement on benefit cheats but not going as far as saying the unemployed or people who have been made redundant due to the recession. I want to make clear that I was agreeing with BT that the alteration of the term didnt go far enough and certainly do not agree with any tory policies or for that matter labour policies re the welfare state – I have in fact spent all morning e-mailing members of the house of lords to ask them to vote against the welfare proposals. If it is possible for BT to remove the above comments that would be much appreciated as they have been misconstrued. Thank you 😀 xxxx

    Quick, someone nuke that area.

    Ah I presume that my comment has been misconstrued and the person who sent me a private message did not open and read the link on the black triangle website – the article says that the mail has changed the headline to ‘welfare’ rather than benefit cheats and BT then goes on to say that the term welfare would have been better being replaced by the unemployed. My first comment is agreeing with BT that the term should have been replaced by the unemployed not by welfare. The Guardian has also changed its original phrase. Thought Ide best clarify things as I dont like receivng personal, accusatory messages from people I dont know! I think both papers should apologise for their printing of the ‘inaccuracy’ not just amend the headline.

    that is not the above comments within the BT quote directly above this but re the ones saying I agree – as it may appear I agree with the tories rather than BT!! Im getting paranoid now!!

  • It must have been missed – but my joke was referring to the Royals in the same breath as welfare – they receive enough of it, don’t you agree? 🙂

  • Barbara Hulme on Facebook September 5, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    I certainly do BT!! they are one household in receipt of welfare who certainly do not need to worry about the ‘reforms’! ;D xxxx

  • LOL! Wish I could charge people to come and have a look ’round my owse! Heheheh 🙂

    Barbara, maybe you know this already, but if you don’t want private messages from people you don’t know, change the settings on your Fb private messaging to only receiving mail from your own Fb friends.

    I was alerted to the fact anyone could send me an Fb private message when I got a charming missive from an edl nut job.

  • Barbara Hulme on Facebook September 5, 2011 at 10:17 pm

    lol!! re nut job!! nightmare!! I didnt know that about messages – thank you – will sort it out!! BT maybe you should try? I remember Mark Thomas doing something re not having to pay landtax if your home is open to the public – wonder if they would stretch that to council tax? you only have to do about 6 days a year to be eligible and you dont have to advertise!! ;D xxxx
